The Alliance for Pioneer Square works to help preserve what makes Pioneer Square the most authentic, engaging and dynamic neighborhood in Seattle. We do this by effectively implementing programs in the following areas: business development, communications and marketing, advocacy, and public realm leadership.
Pioneer Square has an unprecedented number of projects
impacting the public realm: reclaiming alleys, redesigning streets and parks,
fixing curbs and medians, waterfront, parking, and bike lanes. All this and
more are all-in-a-day’s work for Liz Stenning, our Deputy Director. A friendly
and familiar face in the neighborhood, Liz is all about ongoing improvements to
our public realm from curb cuts to crosswalks.

long term goals and planning to every day issues.
