The next in a series of “Find it, Fix it” Community Walks to gauge and solve problems that contribute to public safety issues happens next Tuesday, July 29, at Rainier Avenue and Genesee Street from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The walk begins in the Jumbo parking lot.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray detailed in his public safety address to the Seattle City Council last month 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.
