Focus Group Opportunity
The Seattle Department of Transportation is looking for 8 to 10 people to participate in a discussion about finding your way around the city on foot. This discussion is part of a year-long project to design better walking directions and information to encourage Seattleites and visitors to walk more and further. These meetings will provide the City with critical early input from those who have first-hand knowledge of wayfinding challenges in Seattle.
The discussion will take place over 2 hours on October 10th at the Central Library (1000 4th Ave, Seattle 98104). There will be an afternoon (2pm-4pm) and an evening (5:30-7:30) session. Volunteers must be available on this date to be considered. Refreshments will be provided. Participants will be acknowledged for their time with a $60 Safeway gift card.

Sunday, September 16th – 1pm – 2pm – meet in front of the Lake City Post Office
LCFF has been conducting community clean up efforts in Lake City for the past five years. We are proud of the hundreds of bags of trash collected and give heartfelt thanks to all those that have taken a little time to come out and support these efforts. LCFF provides gloves, bags, grabbers and safety vests. While it is common to find needles we are always sure to instruct our participants not to pick up needles. We ask that people let one of our leads know where they are so that we can take care of it and record it. These are family friendly events and safety is our top priority. The clean up portion of the work provides part of the goal for this program. While trash pick up is an ongoing effort; the conversations, connections and community spirit is a huge part of why these gatherings are so important.
This Sunday we have chose to meet in front of the Lake City Post Office. The area around the post office and the Panos properties has been a very hot topic on local social media as well as being featured on KOMO and Q13 news. We felt that this meeting place gives us an opportunity to connect with neighbors who might be interested in discussing the area with others in hopes of authentic dialog around solutions and strategies.
Please know that LCFF is in contact with our Seattle City Council Member, Debora Juarez, the Mayor’s office and King County Health to ensure that the issues around human waste is being addressed around the area of the post office and the Panos property. All have committed to responding to the issues and we are hopeful for a resolution that will address a complex set of circumstances.
We hope that you will consider joining us this Sunday
