Greenwood-Phinney Greenways is a neighborhood group associated with Seattle Greenways that have advocated for converting some streets to Greenways and advocated for changes which support this same prioritization in locations not designated as Greenways.
Changes of this nature in the Greenwood neighborhood have included the addition of painted speed bumps on Fremont Ave N, the painting of bike lanes on Greenwood Ave N, and the addition of through-traffic prevention on N 90th Street at Linden Ave. The group has also worked with landscape architecture students on potential redesign of residential streets.
