16 competitors will be selected to go head to head in a battle of letters Tuesday near the tri-way intersection of University, Union, and Boylston. Someday, planners would like to see a park at the location. Next week, you’ll see double and triple word scores.

The “street Scrabble” tournament is part of the First Hill Public Realm Action Plan, a Seattle Department of Transportation, Department of Planning and Development and Seattle Parks collaboration with the First Hill Improvement Association to “develop a new public space network in First Hill.” You can read more about the plan here.
