Seattle would be a very different city today were it not for the citizen activists who opposed plans calling for a dense network of freeways traversing and girdling the city.

A coalition of activists, representing communities from Mt. Baker to Lake City and groups as diverse as the Citizens Planning Council and the Black Panthers, joined in opposition. Their collective actions succeeded in halting two major freeways and downsizing a third, saving parks, shoreline and thousands of homes and businesses.
