SDOT hosts planter adoption event after making ‘Healthy Street’ locations permanent

SEATTLE — The Seattle Department of Transportation is hosting a planter adoption event after making ‘Healthy Street’ locations permanent.

With the adoption event neighbors can choose to replace the standard concrete sign base with a planter that will be communally managed.

“‘Healthy Streets’ provide a unique community feature to improve health and provide greater spaces for people walking, rolling, and biking,” said a spokesperson.

The Seattle Department of Transportation said it has been working with neighbors to best decide where Healthy Streets can be made permanent.
