June Public Meeting – June 10

The next meeting of the First Hill Improvement Association will be on Tuesday June 10, from 6pm to 7:30pm. The location is:

The Polyclinic Madison Center

5th Floor Auditorium

Our agenda includes presentations from representative of:

  • SDOT, DPD, Department of Parks – Discussing plans to activate the public realm on First Hill through green streets and park-like spaces throughout the neighborhood.
  • Arts Interruptions. In August First Hill will be buzzing with temporary public art installations. Find out more about the process and what we can expect from this exciting project.
  • Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. Discussing the work they do to create safe, active, and healthy streets throughout Seattle. First Hill could be a great candidate for joining the coalition, and this presentation will help us better understand that opportunity.

There is no need to pay at the parking station on the surface lot. Please note that parking under Madison Center or in the Marion Garage is unavailable for this meeting.
