28th Avenue Street Murals are Going In!
Working through Seattle Department of Transportation’s “Pavement to Parks” program, 28th Avenue NE is receiving a vibrant street mural in addition to painted crosswalks to bookend the street to provide safer pedestrian passage.
A huge thank you goes to LCFF Planning and Development Co-Chair Ray Robinson for shadowing the project and providing the final designs as well as the incredible advocacy and support from Janine Blaeloch and Monica Sweet of Lake City Greenways. Thank you to Lake City Farmer’s Market director, Molly Burke and Two Dog Yoga owner Annie Stocker, for their engagement. Special thanks to Mark Mendez and his Lake City Young Leaders Program and all the residents that gave their time to have input on the design.
Lake City Future First brought additional attention to the potential project to SDOT through the Only in Seattle grant initiative in 2017 and was able to secure funds to make it a reality.
The project will improve pedestrian safety and enhance our collective experience in front of our Lake City Library and Community Center.
