This looks to be a very informative meeting, so head to the Shelterhouse (3211 E Spring St.) at 7:15 on the 9th for all the updates on what’s happening in Madrona!
Madrona Blossoms went up this past Mayfair weekend, and are now a lovely addition to the streets of the Madrona business district.
These baskets are made possible by the Madrona Community Council, and take a year to grow and water throughout the summertime, and they look quite nice and full this year! If you’re around this Memorial Day weekend, head on over to Molly Moon’s for a scoop, and check out the baskets.
At the Madrona Community Council meeting last week, the SDOT presented an overview draft of scope work to address various conflicts with trees and sidewalks in the community. The ultimate goal for the SDOT will be to develop a “toolkit” of options to address these issues, using case studies such as the 34th Avenue East corridor in Madrona as an example to illustrate what applications can be installed. The goal is to create a safe, inviting walkway environment, while growing and maintaining a healthy urban forest and preserving the existing areas.
Work will be completed in 2013, with repairs to sidewalks damaged by street trees, and implementing tree removal where necessary. They will be planting new trees where needed, and researching and implementing long terms solutions to the issues at hand. If you’d like to review the Draft Scope of Work for the project, any comments for suggested changes will be accepted now through February 7th and can be viewed here.
