Pedestrian Safety Program

The Pedestrian Safety Program is designed to assist City staff in responding to resident concerns related to improving pedestrian safety at specific locations throughout the City. The Implementation of a pedestrian safety program allows local pedestrian concerns to be addressed, with the goal of improving pedestrian safety and increasing the number of pedestrians using our non-motorized transportation facilities. 


The City of Edmonds is requesting public input on the 2023 Pedestrian Safety  Program. In 2023, this annual program has funding budgeted to address pedestrian safety issues on any classified roadways (from arterial streets to local speeds). The program consists of a three-phase process:

(1) Petition and Review of each request
(2) Evaluation of submittals/selection of priority locations is based on a set of criteria and limited funding available
(3) Installation of Pedestrian Improvements

In order for a location to be considered in the 2023 Pedestrian Safety Program, a Citizen Request Form (see Exhibit A below) needs to be submitted to the City. Projects deemed qualified will be prioritized and pursued based on available funding. In past years, the program has funded the installation of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB’s) and flashing LED lights around advisory / regulatory roadway signs. Alternative solutions may be considered depending on location and the specific resident concern.

In order for your location to be considered for this Program, please submit the Form by February 17th, 2023 by mail or email to:
