Your Voice Your Choice and Greenways Opportunities
Message for Lake City Greenway’s Janine Blaeloch:
“Just as we begin the Neighborhood Street Fund community prioritization process, the Dept. of Neighborhoods is also starting the annual Your Voice, Your Choice participatory budgeting program for street and park projects. This is the program in which Lake City/District 5 has had overwhelming participation, and some of our projects are now being built.
Please read on to see how you can participate in both these programs.
(1) Neighborhood Street Fund proposals were submitted back in November. D 5 has 57 proposals, of which 35 are in the greater Lake City area. These projects cost between $100K and $1 million.
We can all vote to prioritize NSF projects, either online or at one of two D 5 meetings happening this week and next:
PLEASE COME to a meeting or vote online!
(2) Your Voice, Your Choice projects can be proposed by anyone living, working, or spending time in a Council district and may cost up to $90K.
Lake City Greenways will have an idea-collection gathering for YVYC on Monday, February 11, 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in the meeting room at our newly-more-fabulous Lake City Branch Library. We’ll brainstorm yet more ways to make our streets safer and green spaces better. These proposals are simple to fill out online or on paper, and we will have materials at hand to make it all easier.
This will be the first of LC Greenways’ newly-established quarterly meetings. We so hope to see you there!

D5 Council Member, Debora Juarez Acknowledges “Stop the Bleed” Work
From Debora Juarez’s blog –
“Thank you to Sandy Motzer, Susanna Cunningham, Ann Forrest for all of their hard work to share Stop the Bleed training and tools in North Seattle! They installed life-saving “Stop the Bleed” stations in the Lake City Community Center and the Meadowbrook Community Center, thanks to a $5,000 Neighborhood Matching Fund award they applied for and won from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
#StopTheBleed is a nationwide campaign to train bystanders how to prevent people from bleeding to death in an emergency situation such as a shooting, car crash, or earthquake. I hope you never have to use the training, but it’s so important. In such a situation, bystanders become the first line of defense when an injured person might not be able to access trained medical professionals in time. Considering that a person can bleed to death in less than five minutes, this training is just a crucial as learning CPR.
“The more people who know how to prevent themselves from being a victim and the more people who know what to do to help stop life-threatening bleeding, the better.” I couldn’t agree more, Sandy!
Interested in attending a training? Find out more from the Lake City Emergency Communications Hub here: http://lcstb.blogspot.com/

The trainings are put on by many partners, including Seattle Office of Emergency Management, UW Medicine Harborview Medical Center, Public Health – Seattle & King County, Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center. #SurviveInD5 #D5 #Seattle”
