Crime and Safety Community Conversation
On August 31st about 60 of your neighbors came out to talk with various City and LCFF Partner Organizations about issues of Crime and Safety. Mary Amberg and Officer Gardea engaged people on personal safety and 911 calls. Randy Wiger from Parks, Christa Dumpys from Department of Neighborhoods and Officer Storm led discussions on Find It Fix It, park activation and general policing issues. Thanks goes to Seattle Neighborhood Group, Meridian Center for Health and Monica Sweet with Safe Routes to Schools for providing information and outreach tables. We were also joined by two representatives from the new tent city that is currently operating at the old George Episcopal Church who answered questions from residents. Steve Dougherty who attends the North Precinct monthly meetings and is the face behind the reports distributed through the LCNA email list was on hand. Thank you to Kaffeeklatsch and Manila Manila for providing some yummy snacks and refreshments. During the opening remarks, resident Chuck Dickey was honored with the first ever “Golden Broom” award to recognize his dedication to keeping our community clean. LCFF also took the opportunity to highlight all the great work that Annette (Kaffeeklatsch) and Annie (Two Dog Yoga) are doing as co-chairs of our clean and safe committee. Please consider joining them for one of their hour long Sunday clean up efforts here in our community.
One of the most important ways to mitigate issues around crime and safety is to get to know your neighbors and build community which is the goal of our LCFF Community Conversations. If you have ideas on future Community Conversation topics please send them our way to firstname.lastname@example.org.
