Home Zone: Rainier View

Updated: April, 2023

Current Status

Since the Rainier View Home Zone process started, additional funds have been allocated to this neighborhood from various programs. Because the community's highest concern is pedestrian safety and access, we’re developing concepts that will provide space for people to walk or roll that is separate from cars. The initial walkways will help provide connections to Rainier View Elementary and throughout the neighborhood. The designs are still in development, and community input will be sought. Input from the broad community on the draft home zone will be collected later in 2023.

Draft Home Zone


The Rainier View Home Zone began during the pandemic with a series of community walks. Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) staff fielded almost 100 comments from community members. The top issues were missing sidewalks and speeding, as well as desire for more open space. SDOT staff and the Rainier View Steering Committee have been co-creating a draft Home Zone plan. The plan includes potential projects to address the community comments we received. Stay tuned, we will be sharing that map soon.
