Volunteers Wanted: Robert Eagle Staff Grounds Beautification Effort

We recieved the below request for volunteers from the Friends of Robert Eagle Staff Middle School PTSA to help beautify the school grounds at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School.

"Please join Eagle Staff MS parents and community members to help pull weeds at Eagle Staff, specifically starting in/around the parking lot areas. Once finished out front, we will move to the west & back sides of the school. Compost bags, gloves, tools, ice cold beverages will be provided. If you prefer, you are welcome to BYO gloves, weeding tools, hat and a water bottle. Many hands make light work and this effort to care for our school grounds will instill pride for students, staff and families at your school, model environmental stewardship and ensures we are a good neighbor in our community. It will be great to see what we can accomplish together!!!"

Outlines Provide Sneak Peak of Street Improvements

A friend of the blog dropped a hint letting us know that a new traffic circle has been outlined for N 97th and Wallingford Ave N, which SDOT plans on having completed this summer! The circle will be a very welcome addition to the area, as, despite lots of warning signs and kids, sees more than its fair share of speeding.

This new circle will complement the existing one at N 95th, hopefully reducing speed driving up Wallingford.

95th Circle

On my walk up to N 97th, I also noticed initials outlines for a continuation of the N 92nd bike path by the new School.

You can find out about some more street improvements scheduled to be completed this year on SDOT's Greenway & School Safety Project Website.

Enjoy this great weather! And hopefully, as the season progresses, we will all be able to enjoy some safer streets!

This small Seattle neighborhood is experiencing big changes.

Licton Springs is looking to become even more well prepared for the urban demands of being a < 14 minute light rail ride from downtown. It already has relatively high side-walk coverage and population density for the North Seattle area. It is also full of pro-growth and housing community groups - with no noticeable Nimby presence. And, with the light rail approaching in a few more years, it appears the community will be well positioned to take on the growth it desires. The neighbourhood has been seeing additional improvements planned and completed at an unprecedented pace. It's hard just to keep track of all the projects going on! To try and make it a bit easier: I've gone ahead and taken inventory of all the projects I'm aware of and mapped them out by location, start time, and end time.

Did I miss anything? If so, please let me know in a comment below. In any case, we certainly have an exciting few years to look forward to!
