Neighborhood-Exchange-LinkedIn-216x165-03
April 22, 2017
Start: 10:00 AM at Cortona Café
End: 2:00 PM at Nova High School


Seattle’s Central District has often been seen as ground zero for change in the City. Currently, the neighborhood is grappling with a number of large scale changes, including infrastructure improvements, development and new construction. Residents of the historically African-American neighborhood have been searching for ways to maintain a sense of community and character.

This event will be hosted in partnership with the Friends of the 25th & Union Parklet and Little Free Library, and will focus on community building and engagement strategies through the exploration of a number of Central Area projects. The walking portion of the event will be led by Feet First, beginning at the Parklet at Cortona Cafe and ending at the Nova High School. The tour will stop at the new Outdoor Living Room at Garfield Community Center, the Central Area Greenway, and more.

After convening at Nova, participants will have lunch and a brief presentation from community members and project leaders, followed by time for Q&A and discussion.

Speakers include:
Amanda Bryan, Project Team, 25th & Union Street Parklet
Stephanie Johnson-Toliver, Committee Member, Historic Central Area Arts & Cultural District
Pamela Kliment, Project Planner, Seattle Parks & Recreation
John Stewart, Board of Directors & Policy Committee Chair, Feet First
Kelly Sommerfield, Project Team, 25th & Union Street Parklet

Neighborhood Exchange programs are free and include lunch. Reservations are required.

Seattle Botanical Gardens / Douglass Conference Room 
3501 NE 41st Street 
Seattle, WA 98195


Visitors to Yesler Swamp can now access a boardwalk and gravel upland trail beginning at the east parking lot of the Center for Urban Horticulture, winding through the swamp, and looping back to the parking lot.

This Swamp, a wetland with trees, is located at the corner of NE 41st and Surber Drive on the shore of Lake Washington. It sits on the site of the historic outlet of Yesler Creek, skirts a lagoon that connects to Union Bay and once housed Henry Yesler’s lumber mill. Yesler Swamp hosts over 100 species of birds and an active beaver lodge.

Friends of Yesler Swamp partnered with University of Washington students, faculty, and staff to restore Yesler Swamp by installing native plants and clearing invasive species like Himalayan blackberry, English ivy, and reed canary grass.

Speakers Include:
Carol Arnold, Friends of Yesler Swamp
Carolyn Foster
Karen Selander, City of Seattle, Dept of Neighborhoods
Kern Ewing, Professor of Restoration Ecology at UW and member of the Friends of Yesler Swamp nonprofit

Neighborhood-Exchange-LinkedIn-216x165-01
February 11, 2017
Start: 10:00 AM Pioneer Square at Café Umbia
End: 2:00 PM Hing Hay Coworks Space


This event will be hosted in partnership with the SCIDpda and the Pioneer Square Alliance, which have been working together to revitalize the alleyways of the International District and Pioneer Square.

We kick off with a tour that will take participants through alleyways in each neighborhood. As we go, project leaders will share their work to promote sustainable use and long-term care of these valuable community assets. At the end of the tour the group will gather at the Hing Hay Coworks space for lunch and a brief presentation. After the presentation, the speakers will lead small group discussions to dive deeper into how this project was completed. 

Topics explored will include, funding and resources, working with a consultant, street use and permits and space activation/programming. These small group conversations should leave you with a range of tools and ideas to take with you and apply to your own community-based design projects!

Speakers Include:
Cassie Chinn, Wing Luke Museum
Ching Chan
An Huynh, SCIDpda
Dave Rodgers, MIG⎮SVR
Karen Selander, City of Seattle, Dept of Neighborhoods
Liz Stenning, Pioneer Square Alliance
