Supporting community spirit and creating a connected environment in NE Seattle's Meadowbrook community and surrounding neighborhoods.

D5 CM Debora Juarez secures $500,000 for the NE 110th Sidewalk Project in FY17 City Budget

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.

Arbor Day in Lake City with Mayor Murray

Trees are not only beautiful, they clean our air and our water, calm traffic and help us conserve energy. As Seattle continues to grow, our urban trees and vegetation are critical to keeping Seattle a healthy, livable city.

Join Mayor Ed Murray and City of Seattle urban forestry staff to celebrate all that our city’s beautiful trees do for us at this year’s Arbor Day festivities! Arbor Day will be a fun, family-friendly celebration with activities such as facilitated tree climbing for kids of all ages, apple cider pressing, volunteer tree planting, an ask the arborist booth, a neighborhood Tree Walk, and more!

Remembrance & Rally: Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

image003A rash of serious injuries and fatalities on the streets of north Seattle has galvanized people to demand swift action. From 2015 to the present, there have been 24 serious injury collisions in north Seattle, six of them fatal.

In a normal year, two people lose their lives riding bikes in all of Seattle. In northeast Seattle, two people have been killed riding their bikes just in the past month.

Join Lake City Greenways, NE Seattle Greenways, Green Lake Greenways, Licton-Haller Greenways, Greenwood-Phinney Greenways, Maple Leaf Greenways and many other community groups and neighbors to highlighthese unsettlingly incidents.

They will gather on Sunday, October 9 at noon in front of the Northgate Community Center to remember the people whose lives have been altered by or lost to traffic violence. The gathering will raise awareness and ask city leaders to put money in the budget to construct street safety improvements.

“Northeast Seattle is experiencing a shocking level of traffic violence,” said Cathy Tuttle, director of the traffic safety organization Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. “We’ve mapped where collisions have happened in the northeast and believe many streets could be fixed with modest but effective safety engineering. The City has identified 100 places that could use spot improvements, and people throughout Seattle have documented another 300 street safety concerns. Let’s get the funding in place so we can fix these places. Waiting longer to improve our streets has deadly consequences.”

Seattle has committed to Vision Zero (zero serious injuries or fatalities by 2030), but the $2.4 million budgeted for a life-saving agenda is not sufficient. Neighbors are gathering to say #WeCantWait for more serious injuries and fatalities to spur City action.
