A little time = a lot of pride: Help clean up Admiral tomorrow

admiralogo.jpgImagine driving through one of West Seattle’s gateway areas and thinking “Looks great, and I was part of it.” If you can spare a little time tomorrow morning, you get the right to feel that way about the Admiral District, by joining in the next Adopt-A-Street cleanup with the Admiral Neighborhood Association. No equipment or special clothing needed – just show up outside Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) at 9 am tomorrow (Saturday) – you’ll get city-supplied grabbers, bags, gloves and vests. ANA president Katy Walum says, “We will be covering the Admiral Junction business area on California Avenue SW, south to about Hanford and north to about Walker; and SW Admiral Way, east to about the Admiral viewpoint and west to about 47th SW.” Not a small-child-friendly event, she adds, given the traffic along those streets, “but older kids and teenagers are welcome.” You can also mark your calendar for the next 3 quarterly Adopt-A-Streets: June 5, August 28, December 4.

    Its too bad this couldn’t have been coordinated with the Fairmount Ravine clean up planned for the following Sat ( https://westseattleblog.com/2010/02/your-chance-to-do-more-than-drive-through-fairmount-ravine ) since the Ravine runs right up the middle of Admiral District.

      Those involved may well chime in too, but having covered both cleanups in past years/months, I will say their goals are different – the ravine is a greenbelt (and can be more labor-intensive – since thoughtless people tend to dump BIG items, and partying under the bridge can leave some messes behind too), Adopt-A-Street is urban “litter along the sidewalk” stuff. And both can use more volunteers beyond the diehard “we always do this” core … TR

    This is great scheduling: with the two cleanups on two different days, we can do both.

    but what do we do about the constant dog poop on the sidewalks of Admiral? some blocks are nearly impossible to walk on due to the high level of poop.

    Dang, we’re going to miss the cleanup this weekend but so far we’ve picked up 140 buckets of litter in and around W. Seattle, not too shabby. Hope you have a HUGE turnout tomorrow!

Sorry, comment time is over.
