Did you know? Free permits are available from the City if Seattle to block off your street to through traffic. As long as you’re not blocking an arterial, the city is very likely to approve your free permit which is good for weekly Play Street for six months! We were inspired by our neighbors on 17th and went ahead and applied for the permit allowing us to close our street for up to 12 hours per week. It was a soft opening on Saturday… a few neighbors stopped by to say hello. Lake and his friend Damien enjoyed cruising up and down the street on their balance bikes, even going in circles. Mr. Cat may have been the biggest fan, though. Nice having a reprieve from cars for a bit. The cats were owning the street. We’ll look forward to more Play Street ball playing bicycle riding neighborhood adventures to come!
