This post has been updated with information about a $5000 community project grant available for Crown Hill/Whittier Heights.
The Mayor and key City Department Directors will be in Crown Hill and Whittier Heights on Saturday, November 19 from 10:30 to 12:30 for a city-sponsored Find it Fix it Walk.
During these walks, neighbors will join the Mayor and City officials will walk together to identify physical elements in the neighborhood that make it feel unsafe or poorly maintained, and identify opportunities to make improvements to the community.
We hope you can join us, rain or shine. The walk will begin at Baker Park ,8347 14th Ave NW. The City will provide refreshments in Baker Park from 10:30 to 11:00, and the one-mile walking tour will begin from Baker Park at 11:00 and end at 12:30 at the bus stop at 15th Avenue in front of T-Mobile.
Neighbors can join the entire walk, or can join anywhere along the route. Please share this downloadable flyer and map with your neighbors, and join us as your neighbors discuss these urgent neighborhood topics with our City leaders:
10:30 - 11:00: Sign in and Refreshments 11:00 - 11:15: Welcome Remarks from Mayor Ed Murray 11:15 - 12:15: Community Walk Stop 1/Start: Crime and Safety in Baker Park Stop 2: Proposed Re-zones, Community Planning Stop 3: Safe Pedestrian Access/Safe Routes to School Stop 4: Flooding and Sidewalks Stop 5/End: Transit 12:15 - 12:30: Department Representatives and Staff Available for Questions
The Find It Fix It walk is an excellent opportunity for neighbors to share their ideas and concerns with the Mayor and City Officials. We hope to see you there!
