Join Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and your Cascade / South Lake Union neighbors for a Find It, Fix It Community Walk, Saturday, July 11.
Getting underway at 11 a.m. at Mirabella Seattle, 116 Fairview Ave. North, neighbors, police, and City officials will come together to identify nuisance and safety issues (e.g., overgrown trees, graffiti, and litter) throughout the Cascade neighborhood in South Lake Union. Everyone is welcome!
The City and community will then work together to fix the problems, improving the neighborhood one block at a time. To date, nine Community Walks have been held throughout the city, resulting in hundreds of infrastructure improvements – from new trash and recycle bins to upgraded street lights.
In addition, the City of Seattle has awarded Community Project Grants to support community-led revitalization projects in Cascade. The projects include:
- Painting a community-designed mural on the Y at Cascade People's Center
- Working on rain barrel improvements for the Cascade P-Patch
- Building compost bins that double as work benches at the Cascade P-Patch
- Repairing and installing safety lighting on the community gazebo at the Y at Cascade People's Center
- Revitalizing a community kiosk
