On September 23, 2016, I met with Pam Bowe of the Meadowbrook Community Council. Pam requested a District Office meeting regarding a substantial number of fatalities and traffic related accidents in the Meadowbrook community. I learned that community advocates successfully requested “Bridge the Gap” grant funding to complete the dangerous sidewalk segment on NE 110th St between 35th Ave NE and 36th Ave NE. Construction was approved in 2009 and again in 2013, however development never occurred.
I worked with the Meadowbrook Community Council to successfully secure $500,000 for the construction of this community asset in the 2017-2018 budget.
