Federal Way’s Story
 City of 89,370 Pop (11th largest city in WA)
 Cul-de-sac style subdivisions prominent
 Auto-centric
 Low connectivity
 Few transportation through routes carrying high traffic
 volumes
 Last comprehensive assessment of our non-motorized
 network was in 1998
Typical Neighborhood
 High volume arterials
 serving commercial land
 use
 Surrounding area is
 disconnected from nearby
 business
 Difficult and infrequent
 street crossings
Neighborhood Characteristics
Impacts on Public Health
 Higher than average rates of obesity and health risks as
 compared with rest of King County “FOCUS
 COMMUNITY”
   Third highest adult obesity rate in King County (28.1% vs.
   19.8% in KC).
   63.2% of adults are overweight in Federal Way ( 54.4% in KC)
 Lower than county average percentage of travel by foot,
 bike and transit
Project Overview
 Compressed timeline
 Not your typical consultant
 team
 Multiple citizen input avenues
 Included a “reality check” of
 community vision
 Our work was done within
 the larger coalition effort
Working Relationships – Project Team
 Successful interdepartmental coordination
 City staff was part of production team
 Unique team partnerships
  University faculty/research partners
  Non-profit organization partners
 Included key decision-makers
 CPPW allowed for cities doing similar work to share
 information along the way
Working Relationships – Community
 Used multiple modes of
 engagement
  It actually cost less to set up
  and launch “Engage Federal
  Way” for 6 months than we
  had budgeted for one
  citywide mailing
 Provided feedback as we
 moved forward
 Coordinated efforts with
 local advocacy groups
Working Relationships – Elected Officials
 Don’t be afraid to challenge
 perceived preferences – you
 may be surprised
 Involve elected officials early
 and keep them in the loop
 throughout the process
 You may find some new
 champions
