One week before the city’s Highland Park Find It, Fix It Walk – first announced, casually, more than three months ago – the starting point, starting time, and route map have just been made public. Click the image above for a full-size PDF of the plan. The walk will start at Highland Park Improvement Club (1116 SW Holden) at 6:30 pm, but you’re invited to HPIC as early as 5:30 pm for refreshments and mingling. The stops planned with community leaders are listed on the map and include some of Highland Park’s key unresolved issues, including traffic at Highland Park Way/Holden, this winter’s major mudslide down the HP Way hill, the unrepaired, arson-damaged restroom at Riverview Playfield, side-street speeding, and more. Meantime, from today’s route announcement, a few notes from the city Department of Neighborhoods:
Participants can use the Find It, Fix It mobile app on the walk. This smartphone app offers mobile users one more way to report selected issues to the City. Make sure to download the app before the walk.
In partnership with Cities of Service, the City will offer up to $3,000 in grants for community-led projects to each 2017 Find It, Fix It Walk neighborhood. The Highland Park Community Project Grant Application is available at seattle.gov/finditfixit until June 8. If you have an idea for a project in Highland Park please apply today!
