The city is waiving the fee to close your non-arterial street in Seattle next Tuesday night, August 2 as part of the National Night Out community safety initiative. According to the city’s map, exactly ZERO streets have been registered to be part of the night. But we’ve found out that’s not accurate — so we touched base with the East Precinct to get the complete roster for central Seattle. You can see the map below. And, good news: There’s still time to organize a party for your block.
You should throw a block party on Tuesday.
- Decide to be a neighborhood leader for your non-arterial street. You may not close Broadway. You may close E Ward St.
- Register the event on the Seattle Night Out calendar
- Print up goofy signs so you can feel the power of street closure
- Invite your neighbors (and make sure CDN knows about your fun, too — [email protected])
Map with registered parties as of Thursday night is below.

Our block is closing again this year. Thanks for the reminder! :)
