Seattle is lucky to have a historic, world-class stairway network that allows us to do urban exploration in neighborhoods all over. But, that legacy is at risk. In 2015, unless new funds are allocated to stairways, about 40% of the current city budget for maintenance and refurbishment goes away when the "Bridging the Gap" levy expires.
We're committed to keeping our stairway network healthy. One way to do this is to get more people to know about and care for the stairways in their own backyards. So, we've created Stairway Spring Cleaning Day: a single morning when stairways all over will get scoured, weeded, overgrowth trimmed and generally spruced up for the best days of walking ahead.
Stairway Spring Cleaning Day is jointly sponsored by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Feet First and the City of Seattle. For more information, click here.
