We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get involved in your City and your community!

Here are 5 things you can do this week to GET ENGAGED!

 

Share Your Thoughts on the City of Seattle’s Free Floating Bike-Share Program: Seattle was the 1st city in North America to pilot free-floating bike share. Take a survey from Seattle Department of Transportation & tell them what’s working, what’s not, and how they can improve it.

 

Be a Voice for Renters in Seattle by Joining the Seattle Renters’ Commission (SRC): The SRC consists of people living in an array of rental housing types, to include students, low-income renters, LGBTQ renters, people with past felony convictions, people in subsidized housing, and those who have experienced homelessness. Applications due April 12.

 

Help Redesign Rainier Ave S and Upgrade Bus Service: As soon as 2021, King County Metro Route 7 will be upgraded to RapidRide. Participate in an online open house to learn more about RapidRide service, proposed bus stop changes, possible design changes to Rainier Ave S and S Henderson St, and how RapidRide can help enhance transit and safety in the Rainier corridor. Online open house closes April 8.

 

Join the Community Police Commission: Help amplify and build common ground among communities affected by policing in Seattle and champion policing practices centered in justice and equity. Applications due April 12.
