Starting to get very irritated with the popularity of our intersection with vandals.

Anyone feel like painting?

Application for a Play Street!

Hello Good Neighbors!

 

A group of us between 26th and 28th on Hudson just applied for a Play Street for Lockmore for the summer! This idea is to give neighbors the opportunity to have an area that is blocked off to do as they wish, like host Bike Rodeos, or badminton tournaments, or whatever you see fit for your street! Please, if you think this would be ideal for your street, don’t hesitate to apply!

Survey Sez…

Hello Lockmore Neighbors and Friends!

 

The Greater Duwamish District Council is doing a survey to capture what people think about the District that they live in, and help steer the group so more voices can be heard. It would be wonderful if you could take five minutes out of your day to take this survey, and help!

Thanks so much! Here is the link…

Have a wonderful day!

Important Survey to Take for Columbian Way/Beacon Ave Pedestrian Zoning Opportunity!!

Good afternoon,

 

I wanted to provide a brief update on the pedestrian zone mapping project: we have extended the survey to March 31st to provide additional time to review materials and take the survey (it was set to close today). If you have not had an opportunity already, please review the materials posted on the project website and fill out the survey or email me with comments or questions. Note: we have not made any changes to the preliminary analysis at this point; after the survey closes we will review all of the feedback received (via the survey, emails, discussions at meetings, etc.) and reassess. (full link to project website: http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/cityplanning/completeprojectslist/mainstreetmapping/documents/default.htm).

 

We have also put together additional information on the topic of minimum floor area requirements. On September 9, 2013, the Seattle City Council adopted rules that put in place minimum size requirements (minimum floor area requirements) for development on lots with a pedestrian zone designation in urban centers, urban villages, and station area overlay districts. The rules were passed on an emergency basis, which means they are only in place for 12 months and are scheduled to expire, unless extended, on September 16, 2014. Learn more at: http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/codesrules/changestocode/minimumdensity/whatwhy/default.htm.

 

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you to everyone who already provided feedback!

 

Best,

Aly

Won’t You Be Our Neighbor, Lockmore?

Good morning, Lockmore Good Neighbors!

 

I just read something that deserves to be shared with all of you. The original Good Neighbor, Mr. Rogers was a household name for me, and Lockmore reminds me often of those things that are most important in Life..

Garage Burgled

We have recently noticed someone has been trying to get into our garage through the roll up door on the alley side. The first time we came home and found the door open.  This was a month ago. Now we found the door unlocked and the key hole has been messed with like someone put something in it to jiggle it loose. We are going to have the locks tightened up. Both times we reported to the police. We have now realized someone stole a toolbelt with a few garden tools in it.
