The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is Now Collecting Ideas through March 18
Share ideas for how you’d like to see the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods make small-scale park and street improvements in your neighborhood. The city plans to spend $2 million on these improvements.
When: February 18 to March 18
Who: community members age 11 and up (13 and up to participate online) who live, work, go to school, receive services, or participate in activities within the City of Seattle
How: submit ideas online or in-person at any Seattle Public Library branch. Project ideas must be for physical improvements to Seattle’s parks or streets, to benefit the public, and cost $150,000 or less. For example, where would you like to see park benches, trail improvements, marked crosswalks, sidewalk repair?
Once ideas are submitted, volunteers will turn the ideas into 8 – 10 proposals per council district. This summer, you will have the chance to vote for the top projects within your district. Approximately $185,000 is allocated to each council district from the $2 million budget. The remaining funds are allocated to projects in underrepresented communities or Equity and Environment Initiative (EEI) Focus Areas.
