Queen Anne Ave N pedestrian improvement celebration and ribbon cutting tomorrow

October 2nd, 2009 by Thea

Tomorrow, Saturday, October 3, community members are invited to a neighborhood celebration and ribbon cutting put on by the Seattle Department of Transportation and Picture Perfect Queen Anne, in honor of new pedestrian improvements on along Queen Anne Ave N.

From 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow, members of Picture Perfect Queen Anne, a volunteer-based neighborhood alliance funded by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and Office of Economic Development, will be installing plants around the new pedestrian plaza at Queen Anne Ave N and W Galer St, as well as curb bulbs near the new crosswalks at Queen Anne Ave N and W McGraw Street. The group welcomes anyone interested in assisting with the planting throughout the day.

At 3 p.m. the ribbon cutting and ceremony will take place at the pedestrian plaza (Queen Anne Ave N and W Galer St.) with SDOT Director Grace Crunican.

The project was requested by Picture Perfect Queen Anne, who is working to revitalize Queen Anne Ave N from Galer to McGraw to provide a vibrant pedestrian and family-safe street-scape, through the Neighborhood Street Fund and funding by the Bridging the Gap Levy.
