Community Input Wanted: Neighborhood Street Fund & Your Voice, Your Choice
Help Prioritize Neighborhood Street Fund Projects
Community members have submitted over 300 projects for the Neighborhood Street Fund and now it is time for community prioritization of the initiatives. Every vote has a huge impact at this stage of the process.
Please consider supporting some of the proposed Licton Springs projects:
- Improvements to help make Licton Springs more connected to Green Lake at N 85TH, including improving the Wallingford Ave N crosswalk (#2019-114) and the Ashworth Ave N intersection (#2019-25). These projects are listed as part of District 6 but would benefit both District 5 and District 6.
- Improvements to Aurora Ave N including adding lighting (#2019-116), additional art installations (#2019-75) and crosswalk safety improvements (#2019-18).
- A proposal to make Stone Ave N (#2019-14) a designated North / South Greenway providing safe pedestrian and bicycling access to schools, parks, and amenities.
You can find a map of all the submitted projects here.
