West Seattle Walking Trails kiosks: First one now complete

Chas Redmond sends word that the prototype for the West Seattle Walking Trails kiosks – many more to be seen soon around West Seattle, as we’ve been reporting for more than a year – is now complete, in its showcase spot right outside the Delridge Library. See the Flickr gallery here. (Great day for a walk!) It was just last June that the first phase of the project was recommended for almost $100,000 in Neighborhood Matching Fund money, as reported here; the next few will be placed in the Fauntleroy area, following a round of public meetings including this one.

    Anyone who attended the meetings have background on the decision to cut the map off south of 100th or so? A whole chunk of Arbor Heights has gone missing.

    MargL, I don’t know that each kiosk will feature the entire WS map area, but I suspect Chas can answer that question. I forgot to link to his website with much more about the West Seattle Walking Trails project, which includes the printed map released last year —

    Future maps which are closer to Fauntleroy will have the entire city, including sections of Arbor Heights which were missing from this edition. Part of this is related to GIS data and the costs to acquire the data from the city and the fact that portions of the city which were annexed late (the lower Arbor Heights area) were in a different GIS section and therefore cost additional funds which were not available for this version. Blame this one on bureaucracy, not the Bossa Nova.

    It looks great, hopefully it won’t become a place to put stickers or grafitti.

Sorry, comment time is over.
