We’ve told you all about the group seeking to create the Melrose Promenade, Capitol Hill’s “front porch” along the underutilized streetscape of I-5, but before p-patches, art work or sidewalks go in, the Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee wants some public feedback.
The community is invited to take a short online survey that inquires:
What is currently your favorite spot on Melrose Ave and why?
What types of long-term physical improvements would you like to see on Melrose Ave?
What types of events would you like to see along Melrose Ave as a long-term goal?
The feedback will help shape the vision for transforming Melrose Avenue into the Melrose Promenade. The renovations aim to make strolling or riding on Melrose a safer, more enjoyable experience, while improving connections between Seattle neighborhoods.
Along with the survey, there will be future community visioning meetings that will eventually lead to a report outlining a detailed proposal for the promenade.
The project is powered by a $20,000 Small and Simple grant from the city, but will need more than $1.5 million to complete. Find out how to donate time and money to the cause at melrosepromenade.com.
