Vote for Local Park and Street Improvement Projects.
The month of September is your chance to vote for your favorite local park and street improvement projects. It’s all part of the City of Seattle’s Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks & Streets, a participatory budgeting program in which community members democratically decide how to spend a portion of the City’s budget on small park and street improvements.
Approximately $186,000 is available for each Council district, and residents can cast their ballots for their top three choices in the district where they live, work, go to school, receive services, or volunteer.
The projects that receive the most votes will be funded by the City and implemented in 2020. Community members ages 11 and up can vote online or at all Seattle Public Library branches.
After ballots are tallied, the winning projects will be announced in October. You can find information and voting instructions at www.seattle.gov/yvyc.
Northgate Teacher in Need
A teacher at Northgate Elementary School is asking for your help making sure her special ed students have the best possible chance of learning and building their personal confidence.
On her page at DonorsChoose.org Ms. Linda says: "Our small elementary school is Title I and needs all the support we can get from the community for supplies that support our students in their growth and learning. The Special Education team is seeking to develop a sensory room, where all students can go for a break, that will provide our most vulnerable students with the sensory stimulation or sensory break they need to get back to learning quickly and painlessly."
Ms. Linda describes her students as a remarkable group of young people that are learning to navigate the word amidst trauma, instability, and poverty.
As of this posting she is still short of her $1322 goal. You can help her reach it by donating here.
