From the City of Seattle
You may have recently received an invitation in the mail to one of our upcoming events for the Central Ridge Neighborhood Greenway. I wanted to also reach out to a wider group of community stakeholders with a personal invitation to attend a pop-up event on Thursday afternoon at Firehouse Park near Swedish Cherry Hill Campus.
We’ll also have a booth at this year’s Umoja Fest at Judkins Park and an option to participate online if you can’t make it.
Learn more at our project website and on the attached mailer and factsheet. Our online survey will be open from July 27 to August 20.
- Pop-up lemonade stand
Thursday, July 27: 4 – 6 PM
Firehouse Mini Park, 712 18th Ave
- Umoja Fest table
Saturday, August 5: 11 AM – 3 PM
Judkins Park, 2150 S Norman St
We’ve been working with community members from Capitol Hill, First Hill, Central Area, and Judkins Park since winter 2017 to identify routes for a new north-south neighborhood greenway to be built as soon as 2019. We also asked for input on route options between Lowell Elementary School and Meany Middle School (opening fall 2017).
We heard that the community would like calmer, safer, and flatter routes to get to Rainier Valley, Judkins Park, Swedish Cherry Hill, Volunteer Park, and 15th Ave E businesses.
We want to know if we got the most promising route right. We’re sharing the most promising route and asking for input on intersection design options for the next few weeks – now is the time to learn more and tell us what you think.
We plan to finalize the route this fall and build the greenway in 2019.
If you can’t make it to one of the in-person events, you can share your feedback by completing an online survey. The survey is available from July 27 through August 20. Check the website then for a link to the survey. And please, share it with your neighbors, friends, and colleagues.
