Help decide how to spend $3,000,000 of the City’s budget on relatively small-scale park and street improvement projects in Seattle! Project ideas will be collected January 2 – February 2. Anyone is welcome to propose project ideas. Ideas may be submitted online or in-person at any Seattle Public Library branch or various public outreach events.
As a reminder, each project must:
- Benefit the public;
- Cost $90,000 or less;
- Be a physical project that is located within Seattle’s parks or streets.
For more information, view examples of eligible projects and see a map of ideas rolling over from 2017 to 2018 (including a few in and around Wedgwood). Please contact Kraig Cook at the Department of Neighborhoods with any questions.
And if you’re interested in getting more involved, the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking community leaders interested in serving on the Steering Committee for Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks & Streets. This Steering Committee will advise, guide, and assist on key programmatic activities related to equity, the funding structure, outcomes and accountability. The deadline for applications is Friday, January 19 at 6pm. More information is available on the Department of Neighborhood’s website.
