Our meeting on Growth in Crown Hill and the Seattle 2035 Comprehensive Plan on October 24th was very well attended. More than 70 people from our neighborhood and beyond came, and listened, and spoke. Seattle Department of Planning and Development sent along 3 staffers (Geoffrey Wendtlandt, Patrice Carroll, Susan McClain). Geoffrey Wendtlandt. The Mayor’s office sent along Chris Gregorich.
The City of Seattle has issued its preliminary 2035 Comprehensive Plan and it has implications for Crown Hill. The plan provides long-term guidance about managing growth for the next 20 years. Crown Hill continues to be an urban hub designated to absorb significant growth. What does that mean for our community?

9th Annual Crown Hill Neighborhood Garage and Yard Sale
When: Saturday, July 11th, 9 AM to 3 PM Where: All over Crown Hill
Garage sales fill that need to turn one person’s castoff into another’s treasure. Whether it’s baby clothes your high schooler outgrew years ago and a young family could use, or that bike that clutters your basement and someone without a car could use, or …. You get the idea. Start rounding up the stuff. Talk to your neighbors about doing a multi-family blowout sale with BBQ and a really festive atmosphere. See if the kids are up to selling lemonade, cookies, etc. to contribute to their iPad fund.
Signups are open until 5 PM on Friday, July 10th. We’ll get to updating the map soon after you post your information, but if you don’t see it within 24 hours, shoot us an e-mail with the details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Crown Hill Neighbors has been organizing the annual garage sale since 2007! We were one of the first in Seattle to publish an online map of all the sale locations – something much copied about town. It’s a lot of fun to cruise the sales and talk to your neighbors if you don’t have the time to put together a sale.
