Planning Elements in Seattle

Mehh. Finals week has me feeling a little bit stressed. Since we got back from Seattle, things have been a whirl-wind! I will definitely be looking forward to some down-time after my last exam on Wednesday. Last semester, I took some time off from blogging to focus on school; but since I have several posts from my trip, I don’t want to stop!

Today’s post is another “Planning Elements”. I started this from when I traveled to Pittsburgh (you can find that post here). Since I went to a city planning conference with a bunch of city planners, it made sense for planning elements to be a thing for us to watch out for.

planningseattleThe first two photos are two community gardens. The first was in Capitol Hill and the second was on our walk from Capitol Hill to Downtown. The third photo is of the bike share in Seattle. Two people on the trip ended up using it while on our visit. They even have helmets you can borrow, which we don’t have in Columbus! The fourth image is a bike rake in the shape of a car – how cool. The fifth photo is a shot of the monorail. We don’t have express lanes in Central Ohio (maybe we do somewhere, but I’ve never noticed them!), so the sixth photo is Seattle’s express lanes. The seventh photo is of a walk score sign, which I had never seen posted in a neighborhood, but I think that’s a good selling point of a place. Pike’s Market is pretty iconic and planing related! The second to last photo is a parklet! And the last is just a small and prettyΒ roundabout πŸ™‚

Have a great Tuesday!
