Why the Find It Fix It Walk Matters for our Neighborhood
Crown Hill Urban Village is projected to grow by 50% over the next 20 years, and this growth will have significant impacts on residents living within the Urban Village and Expansion area, as well as in the nearby community. The City is moving forward quickly to upzone our neighborhood to increase density.
The City’s Crown Hill/Whittier Heights Find It, Fix It Walk will be an opportunity to introduce Mayor Murray and City Officials our neighborhood and discuss pressing issues impacting the livability of our community that needs to be addressed before growth, including many of the issues highlighted in our community survey. Issues such as flooding and drainage problems, lack of sidewalks and safe pedestrian mobility over arterials, necessary transit improvements, public safety concerns, parks and school capacity and the need for comprehensive neighborhood planning for smart growth are the types of concerns we hope to address with City Officials and the Mayor.
This Find It Fix It Walk was initiated by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and Mayor Murray’s office, and it is sponsored by the City of Seattle. The Crown Hill Urban Village Smart Growth Committee is working with the City and other neighborhood organizations to facilitate this event. We believe this opportunity with the Mayor and City department heads is very important opportunity to point out real needs in our community that must be addressed as the City adds density.
