Coe Kids Safe Crossing


January 2022

Thanks to all our wonderful Queen Anne neighbors and businesses, we are on our way to a safer crosswalk at 7th West and West McGraw Street.

The Coe Kids Crossing group formed a community action committee to promote crosswalk improvements at this intersection near Coe Elementary School. The hard work of many volunteers - individuals and businesses - resulted in our being able to secure a Neighborhood Matching Grant to cover a portion of the costs of the physical construction of much needed improvements.

However, we still need your help to complete our matching donations. You can now donate directly to Coe Kids Crossing HERE, through our fiscal sponsor, the Seattle Parks Foundation. AND because your donations go to the Foundation, they are tax deductible!

If you have questions, you can contact the Leadership Committee Co-Chairs, Paula Mueller or Jennifer Crow at .

Let’s make this a safer place for our children, and for everyone. And, THANK YOU for your support!


A group of Queen Anne residents has formed a community action committee to promote crosswalk safety improvements at 7th Avenue West and West McGraw Street, just south and east of Coe Elementary School. The intersection currently has a painted crosswalk on the east side of 7th Avenue West, but no other crossing aids that alert drivers to children or anyone who may be attempting to cross there. Read about the proposed improvements here.

Our goal is to secure improvements that will make this crossing safer for everyone in the community who uses this busy intersection. For more information, click on ABOUT.

We still need your help!

Funding for construction of the crosswalk safety improvements requires that the community fund half of those costs. That means that we still need donations to help offset hard construction costs.

You can make a donation directly to the project HERE. And because donations go to our fiscal sponsor, the Seattle Parks Foundation, they are deductible!
