What’s next for the Delridge Triangle? You can help answer that question. Here’s the announcement we received today:

Friends of the Delridge Triangle — an all-volunteer, grassroots gathering of neighbors — is pleased to announce that it has selected Seattle-based MAKERS to lead a community design process for a reimagining of the Delridge Triangle right-of-way space at 9200 Delridge Way SW.

The greater Seattle community is invited to a series of public workshops to help imagine new ideas for the space. Save the date for the first: mid-morning on Saturday, March 23 at Highland Park Improvement Club. Everyone is welcome.

Soon, we’ll also have a pre-workshop survey available for you to share your thoughts about the space, the design and our community. Learn more and sign up for our email list for the latest information at delridgetriangle.org.

The Delridge Triangle lies at the center of South Delridge. With Highland Park to the east and Westwood-Roxhill to the west, the right of way is central feature of our neighborhood, and the nearest public open space for many families living in South Delridge. Friends of the Delridge Triangle seeks to activate the voice of the community to create a safe and inclusive public space for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

MAKERS is an architectural and urban design firm based in Seattle, providing services to clients throughout the US. Founded in 1972, the firm was selected for its community-centered approach and experience with public projects, including the Barton Street P-Patch.

This project has been funded by community volunteering, pledges and commitment from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund.

It’s been two years since a community discussion (WSB coverage here) identifying problems and possibilities preceding this process.

We’ve now started the process of seeking a consultant or firm with expertise in planning, urban design, and/or landscape architecture to lead a series of public meetings to develop and deliver design concepts and cost estimates for the space located at 9200 Delridge Way.

If there are any local firms or consultants that are interested in submitting a response for consideration, the RFQ, support documentation and submissions process can be found at: delridgetriangle.org/rfq/

Submissions are due November 2nd. We hope to hear from interested professionals in the West Seattle community!

Thanks to Mary for the photo and report:

The clean-up was a joint effort between the South Delridge Community Group (SDCG) and Friends Of The Delridge Triangle (FDT). This is one step of a greater project in the works to redevelop the Triangle into a safe and usable community space where the neighborhood can play. The Delridge Triangle project was a Your Voice, Your Choice 2017 award recipient. The project is now moving forward and hopes for a boost from the 2018 Neighborhood Matching Fund.

Got 2 minutes? The Delridge Triangle can use them right now

That’s a view of the Delridge Triangle (18th/Barton). We’ve reported before on community plans to give it a brighter, safer future, and now there’s a simple, fast way to show your support. From Kim Barnes:

Did you know the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Coalition is working in partnership with Highland Park Action Committee and South Delridge Community Group to improve one of our community public spaces in South Delridge?

On June 25th, The Friends of the Delridge Triangle will submit its application to the Neighborhood Matching Fund. The goal? To get the Delridge Triangle (9200 Delridge Way, across from Burger Boss and 2 Fingers Social) redesigned to create a space that is safe and usable for the community.

The Delridge Triangle lies at the center of the South Delridge community. With Highland Park to the east and Westwood-Roxhill to the west, the public right of way is central feature to the South Delridge corridor. The space has a long history of negative social behaviors that have created fear and avoidance and the surrounding community is in desperate need of easily accessible outdoor space. Your pledge to participate in the redesign project over Fall 2018-Spring 2019 is a critical step toward filling the need for easily accessible green space in South Delridge.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

For the grant application to be successful we need your pledge of interest to participate as the Community Match to the grant award over the October 2018-April 2019 period. Can you spare two minutes today and complete the volunteer pledge form here?

For project information along with online pledge form, you can go here: DelridgeTriangle.org Your details will not be shared beyond the Delridge Triangle team, and you’ll be updated on the progress of the application submission starting at the end of June.

Can you help with getting more pledges? Would you like to consider pledging cash, materials or have questions? Email the steering committee at DelridgeTriangle@gmail.com. Thank you for supporting our community!

At right in the photo above is the space that’s been dubbed the Delridge Triangle, where community members have been working to make the space safer and more accessible for everyone. They’re about to take the next step, and hoping you want to come along and collaborate! The announcement is from Kim Barnes:

WWRHAH.org, in partnership with the South Delridge Community Group, is pleased to announce the Your Voice, Your Choice 2017 award improvements will start this summer! As the scope of these improvements is finalized by SDOT, the Friends of the Delridge Triangle are now ready to move forward with the next step to create a safe and useable community space for everyone with help from the 2018 Neighborhood Matching Fund.

The SDOT-managed “parklet,” located at 9201 Delridge Way and framed by Barton Street SW at 18th Ave SW, will leverage the grant application in two phases: Phase one will focus on the selection and hire of a landscape architect to create a stepped redesign plan and budget to build out the space. The chosen firm will meet with the community Fall/Winter 2018 to reimagine the Triangle by applying the desired outcomes generated from the 2017 in workshop SDOT. You can see the [WSB] coverage of the 2017 meeting with an overview of the desired outcomes: “From Problems to Possibilities.”)

Our first=round table application meeting will take place on April 30th, from 6:30-8 pm at 2 Fingers Social, 9211 Delridge Way SW. Kids are welcome until 8 pm so all are welcome. Get to know your neighbors and learn about the background, desired outcomes and opportunities at a mini community social at 6:30 pm. Specific application questions will then be fielded to the appointed fund coordinator from 7-8 pm. Please join in to hear how we can work together to make the Triangle safe and accessible for the neighborhood! For more information, contact Kim Barnes at: WWRHAHCommunityCoalition@gmail.com

We reported on the 2017 Your Voice, Your Choice winners last August.

From problems to possibilities: What’s next for the South Delridge Triangle Bus Stop Park, after Saturday’s workshop

IMG_8442
(WSB photo taken post-workshop – looking south across the triangle)

By Tracy Record
West Seattle Blog editor

Whoever you talk to about the “South Delridge Triangle Bus Stop Park” [map], Kim Barnes began, “they say, oh yeah, we gotta do something about that.”

Last summer’s Find It, Fix It Walk provided the spark to ignite “something,” and after a community workshop on Saturday morning, it’s officially launched. About 20 people gathered at the Highland Park Improvement Club to discuss the site’s challenges and possibilities.

Along with community members – led by Barnes, who’s with the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council – city reps were there too, including SPD’s Lt. Ron Smith and Sgt. Ryan Long, since safety/crime concerns are a major motivator for doing “something.”

So is the fact that the site could become a RapidRide stop when Delridge’s RR line opens in a few years.

UPDATE: Driver hits Mac’s Pub in South Delridge Triangle

IMG_5138

5:27 PM: Just checked out the aftermath of a crash that briefly brought out a big response in the South Delridge Triangle at Delridge/Roxbury. A driver hit the west side of Mac’s Triangle Pub; neither she nor anyone was else was seriously hurt, and the scene of the 4:30 pm crash was clear within half an hour, with no residual traffic effects. Proprietor “Mac” McElroy showed us the dent left in the building. (Photo above is ours; next one is theirs:)

20160812_161851

7:02 PM: In case you’re wondering – Mac’s IS open post-crash, but says: “Still open but the damage will require some remodeling. We’re thankful nobody was injured. We’ll be ready for karaoke tonight and breakfast and football tomorrow!”

Video: White Center Christmas Tree goes up in Delridge Triangle

A stalwart group of Santa’s helpers, including White Center business-community leaders, just achieved a milestone in the WC/South Delridge holiday season – raising the official Christmas tree in the Delridge Triangle mini-park (16th/Roxbury) for the second year. As you can see in our video, bright sunshine and good cheer certainly helped. All are welcome to the tree lighting this Sunday night at 5 pm. Santa himself will be there, along with carolers, we hear. (More WC/West Seattle holiday-event info here.)

Halloween Eve: Pumpkin-carving contest in Delridge Triangle

The first-ever White Center Pumpkin Carving Contest is in the judging phase till about 8 pm; drop by and pick your fave! Five pumpkins were on display when we dropped by just after 7 – including John Tarrant‘s “Angry Birds” entry, above. You’ll find the pumpkins under a canopy right in front of Mac’s Triangle Pub on the north side of Delridge/16th/Roxbury – and the entries will be on display during White Center business-district trick-or-treating (5-8 pm) tomorrow night, too. (See a few more photos on our partner site White Center Now.)

West Seattle Veterans Day: New flag for the Delridge Triangle

Near the line between West Seattle and White Center in the Delridge Triangle, that plaque marks a tribute to veterans. This Veterans Day 2010 afternoon, a new flag flies over it:

It only happened with the help of a Seattle Fire Department crew, from Ladder 13.

“Mac” McElroy from nearby Mac’s Triangle Pub, who shared the photos, says someone who used to tend the flag isn’t able to do it any more, so he sought help in replacing it with a new one for Veterans Day – and SFD responded. Mac is a veteran too, by the way. And he’s trying to find out who can help get the flagpole area re-lit: “The city has been unable to help, as has the VFW. But it should be lit at night or taken down each evening.”
