YOUR VOICE, YOUR CHOICE: List of 211 West Seattle/South Park ideas trimmed to 10

The first-ever Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks and Streets process for what used to be the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund is now on to the next phase. We first told you in January about the chance to suggest ideas for these grants of up to $90,000, with $2 million to be spent citywide; then the city invited community members to review the suggestions – in City Council District 1, West Seattle/South Park, 211 came in – and now the Department of Neighborhoods has announced which 10 are moving on to the next phase of review. You’ll find them on the map above (which also includes the 60 from the six other council districts around the city – grab the map with your cursor and pull it up to see the rest of D-1, and click on any marker to bring up more information about that specific proposal); here’s the list:

Project #17-006: Trail improvements at Roxhill Park
Neighborhood: South Delridge

Project #17-014: Improve 5-way intersection at Dallas Ave S, 12th Ave S, and Thistle St
Neighborhood: South Park

Project #17-019: Bus stop improvements on Barton St
Neighborhood: South Delridge

Project #17-031: Crossing Improvement along SW Henderson St
Neighborhood: Highland Park

Project #17-044: Improved crossings on S. Cloverdale
Neighborhood: South Park

Project #17-068: Crossing improvements at 35th Ave & SW Dawson St
Neighborhood: West Seattle

Project #17-085: Add sidewalks to S. Sylvan Way
Neighborhood: High Point

Project #17-145: Install marked crosswalk along SW Alaska St.
Neighborhood: Junction

Project #17-153: Install crosswalk near Youngstown
Neighborhood: Delridge

Project #17-163: Traffic-calming on Avalon Way
Neighborhood: Fairmount

The proposals that make the final cut after SDOT and Parks reviews will go for district-by-district community votes in June; the city promises more information on that when it gets closer.

    Would I ever love to slow down drivers on Avalon and curb traffic roar. Lived here in 2004 (was not as loud then), moved away, moved back in 2015 and holy smokes the noise is deafening. More importantly—-> scary for bikers and pedestrians as well….

    So happy to see the south Delridge neighborhood’s bus park triangle @ Barton/Delridge/18th made it onto the list.

    The 35th and Dawson crossing was popular even when it was pitched by SDOT as a potential Phase 2 project.

    SW Dawson Street
    At Dawson, a marked
    crosswalk or full traffic signal
    are being considered to ease
    access to and from Camp
    Long and provide a greenway

    Roxhill Park so needs this. It could be a wonderful community hub.

    Sidewalks on Sylvan please! There is actually a bus stop on Sylvan by Home Depot that is completely inaccessible to pedestrians. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
