Description

Join Feet First Watershed Walks Ambassador Timothy Lowry, PE, LEED AP, transportation and watershed planner on an urban field tour of the High Point neighborhood. High Point is ten percent of the Longfellow Creek watershed and, this tour follows up on Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Bryan Fiedorczyk's Watershed Walk of Longfellow Creek. Experience High Point’s innovative community planning and sustainable design. We will walk the venerable and diverse Smart Growth neighborhood and see examples of green buildings, mobility connections to transit, parks and Longfellow Creek. We will also see Low Impact Development/natural Green Stormwater Infrastructure installations. Approaching a decade in the ground, the Natural Drainage Systems, tree retention, landscape amenities and permeable pavements have matured into a very pleasing, walkable and desirable urban neighborhood.

 

Participants will enjoy one of Seattle’s key sustainable developments from the site to watershed scale, transportation shed, and see how innovative achievements can be accomplished through hard work and collaborative efforts by Seattle Housing Authority, Department of Planning and Development, Department of Transportation, Public Utilities, Parks, Public Libraries and Public Schools.

When: Saturday, November 3, 1pm - 3 pm
Meeting Location: Outside the High Point Library, 3411 S.W. Raymond St., Seattle, WA 98126
