The next in a series of “Find it, Fix it” Community Walks to gauge and solve problems that contribute to public safety issues happens in the International District neighborhood at 6:00 p.m. The walk will begin at Hing Hay Park (423 Maynard Ave S.) and loops around S. King Street and S. Jackson Street.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray detailed in his public safety address to the Seattle City Council in June the city’s plan to focus on key crime hotspots.
At the walks, community residents, police, and city officials identify physical disorder and solve it. The walks incorporate the Find It, Fix It application, which allows users to note identification, notification and action taken on graffiti removal, street lighting, litter and garbage clean-up, and trimming overgrown bushes and trees.
As a result of these walks, Seattle City Light, the Seattle Department of Transportation, the Department of Planning and Development, and Seattle Public Utilities are working to make improvements in Seattle’s neighborhoods. Watch videos, view photos and read actions taken as a result of these walks at: http://murray.seattle.gov/finditfixit.
