MAP THE SQUARE
Help Improve Our Public Space

From September 6th to the 13th, Pioneer Square will undergo an art/outreach project created by you! The Young Architects Forum – a part of the American Institute of Architects – in conjunction with the Seattle Design Festival, has partnered with the Alliance to implement a fun and engaging exercise for the public to weigh in on what you would like to see added, changed, or removed from our streets and sidewalks. Your input will help inform how to transform Pioneer Square into an even more unified, lively, and attractive place to be. The recently completedStreetscape Concept Plan serves as an amazing guide as we continue to improve Pioneer Square public spaces. And after rounds of outreach for the Concept Plan, we’re still looking for your input! Visit www.allianceforpioneersquare.org for information on how YOU can participate!

EVENTS
So Many Events in September!

This is but a taste of what’s happening in Pioneer Square. Take a walk and see it all for yourself. And while you’re out there, introduce yourself to someone new. That’s the secret sauce for our extraordinary neighborhood!
