At this month’s meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council we heard about voting for “Your Voice, Your Choice” and the chance to get $90,000 in funding to improve NE 104th Way.
The city of Seattle has accepted proposals throughout the city for various improvement projects including one we submitted to put a sidewalk in on NE 104th Way from 23rd Avenue NE to Lake City Way. Currently pedestrians going to the bus stop at the bottom of the street must walk in the middle of the narrow lane. The city has modified our proposal, saying the street is too narrow and steep for a sidewalk, but they can put a shoulder up to Lakeview Lane. You can now vote to fund this project.
Everyone over 15 can vote for three projects by visiting this site: https://pbstanford.org/seattle Then select “District 5” then click “Vote Now” and then verify your phone number, so be ready. Once you have received a text message with a code and input it into the site you can vote. Be sure and vote for Project 5F, the NE 104th Way project. Thanks!
In other news, we heard an update about the Northgate Community Center (they have a Community Festival coming up on June 29th from 5-8 PM), and how to safely pick up used needles that are found on private property (the city will pick up needles on public right-of-ways within 24 hours if you use the Find It, Fix It app or website, but they cannot do it on private property).
Our annual potluck/ice cream social will be Tuesday, July 17th on NE106th Street next to the park from 6-8 PM. This is our big neighborhood event each year that draws scores of families and usually an appearance by the Seattle Fire Department.
