We are pleased to announce that Central Seattle Greenways has been selected by the City of Seattle to receive a $20,000 Neighborhood Matching Fund grant to support better pedestrian and bike infrastructure on the Hill! This grant will fund improvements and outreach to make the Melrose corridor a more attractive place for people to walk, bike, and even enjoy the view. Known as the Melrose Promenade Project, the grant will support volunteer community cleanups along Melrose and the trail at its northern end; a series of monthly “Muffins on Melrose” events to engage pedestrians and bicyclists about the future of Melrose and the efforts of Central Seattle Greenways over coffee and pastries; and, a community planning and visioning effort focused on the northern end of Melrose, the trail connecting to Lakeview Blvd, and the adjacent park and open spaces.
This is the start of a great neighborhood greenways project that will make Capitol Hill an even more attractive place to live, work, and visit. We are looking forward to delving into the project and want to hear from you! If you are a neighbor on Melrose, use Melrose on a regular basis, or would like to enjoy Melrose, we want to get you involved in the project! We have immediate opportunities to get involved at our first Muffins on Melrose (Friday, June 1st) and community cleanup events (Sunday, June 10th), and many more opportunities throughout the summer and fall.
In addition to our work on Melrose, Central Seattle Greenways is gearing up for more events in the neighborhood. We’ll be active at Muffins on Melrose and Melrose community cleanup events and have several route-scouting and community rides in the works while the weather is warm, so be sure to watch the blog and join our mailing list to keep up to date with upcoming events!
