Just in from the city – the plan, and map, for next Monday’s Find It, Fix It Community Walk in the Roxhill and Westwood areas – the second one in West Seattle, after the Delridge FIFI walk last October (WSB coverage here). The starting point is now finalized – Longfellow Creek P-Patch at 25th SW/SW Thistle, just east of Chief Sealth International High School; refreshments and sign-in are planned 6-6:30 pm, with the walk to follow this schedule:
6:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.
· Welcome remarks from Mayor Ed Murray
6:45 p.m. – 7:55 p.m.
· Walk commences along the following route (map):
o West on SW Thistle St
o South on 26th Ave SW

7:55 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

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 $5,000 in grants for community-led projects to each 2016 Find It, Fix It Walk neighborhood. The Roxhill/Westwood Community Project Grant Application is available in seven languages at www.seattle.gov/finditfixit until Wednesday, August 3. If you have an idea for a project in Roxhill/Westwood, please apply today!
We first reported three months ago that West Seattle’s second walk would be in the Roxhill area; Westwood was a recent addition to the plan. This is the only one planned for West Seattle this year.
