Belltown residents and business owners are invited to help plan the upcoming Belltown Find It, Fix It Community Walk, the second of seven Mayor-led walks happening this year. During these walks, neighbors, police, and City officials walk together to identify physical elements in the neighborhood that make it feel unsafe or poorly maintained. Once the elements are identified, the City and community work together to fix the problems.
The Belltown walk will be held on Tuesday, June 28 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. and will follow a route determined by community members serving on its Community Walk Action Team. If you are interested in volunteering for this team, contact Find It, Fix It Program Coordinator Laura Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.233.5166.
In addition, Belltown community members are invited to apply for up to $5,000 to complete community projects that improve the safety or appearance of their neighborhood. To apply for a Belltown Community Project Grant, community members can find the application at seattle.gov/finditfixit beginning Thursday, June 23 through Friday, July 8.
Lastly, community members don’t have to wait for the walk to report safety needs or city maintenance issues. They can use the Find It, Fix It mobile app:
- Android users can download the app from the Google Play Store
- iPhone users can download it from the App Store
