Lights Finally Back On 33rd Ave NE

Thank You To City Staff and Community Advocates

After people removed the wiring from the street lights that lined 33rd Avenue, the street remained without lighting for several months. Thanks to the advocacy of Dogwood Play Park, Build Lake City Together, the Seattle Mennonite Church and residents the issue came to the forefront. The main driver was Osbaldo Hernandez Sahagun who is our Department of Neighborhoods Community Coordinator for the north end.  Osbaldo saw the issue through to the Mayor’s office. 33rd Avenue from 125th to 130th is one of the most culturally and economically diverse streets in the City. While it is unfortunate that the street was without lighting for so long it was a great demonstration of City staff and community working together to address a major issue in our neighborhood.

Thanks again to all involved.
