Feet First, which promotes walkable communities, is sponsoring, along with the Laurelhurst Community Club, a "Neighborhood Walk and Talk"on Saturday from 10-12, to have the community to weigh in on the $2 million Seattle Children's Hospital has designated towards bike and pedestrian projects.

Partipants are encourages to give ideas and be creative on proposed projects.

The invite says:

"This two-hour walk and talk from 10-12pm will explore proposed new pedestrian signals that are designed to make it easier to access the Burke-Gilman.

"We'll take a look at necessary signage to go by foot easier and physical to around Seattle Children's and new curb ramp improvements. We'll also take a look at the new configuration to reduce the number of crashes at 25th and Blakeley Street.

"Your pictures, ideas, recommendations will be shared at the Livable Streets Workshop on November 13th."

Feet First will provide maps, clipboards and cameras. 10am-12pm. This is a family event and all ages and abilities are encouraged to attend.
