King County Metro Transit made big changes to many of its bus routes on September 29th, 2012. They made these changes after much public consultation. Most changes to routes and schedules were a response to the introduction of the Rapid Ride C and D lines providing service from West Seattle to Downtown Seattle, and Ballard to Downtown Seattle via Queen Anne. This is a Ballard District Council led initiative to determine whether these changes have made it easier or harder to use public transit. Some people feel their commute or other use of the bus system has been impaired, while others feel the changes have been an improvement. This is not designed as a scientific survey, but an opportunity to see whether or not the service is improved over what it was.
Participation in this survey is completely voluntary. The information collected will be tabulated and used for transit planning discussions for Ballard and in discussions with Metro Transit. The survey is open until Jan 31, 2013

Crown Hill Neighbors wants to hold events that people living in Crown Hill are interested in. We recently held a well attended Crime Prevention and Public Safety event, and a Disaster Preparedness presentation at our annual meeting. We would like to get some feedback from you.
We created a Survey Monkey questionnaire to find out what you are interested in. You can take the survey right here. The survey is brief and can be completed in just a few minutes. Please check it out and provide your input. Thanks.
The Seattle Dept. of Neighborhoods wants your opinion. The city-wide effort to reduce government spending is underway. Some impacts from budget cutting have already been felt by the DON. Last year, a number of Neighborhood Service Centers were closed, the 13 district coordinators (one for each district) were reduced to 9, attempts were made to close some of the Community Centers, and employee furloughs were instituted. This year additional cuts are required and the Department is asking for some guidance from you, the residents and businesses of Seattle. The survey takes about 10 minutes and is here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YQLJ82V
From a DON news release:
Mayor Mike McGinn recently announced an online survey to gather community input on public safety. The survey is being conducted by graduate students from the UW Evans School of Public Affairs. You can take the survey here. It takes about 10 minutes to complete.
From the press release:
Recently Small Faces completed work on a grant to install a new play structure in the playground area. This is Phase 1 of a plan to revitalize the playground area. The playground and new structure are open to the public when Small Faces is not using them. Crown Hill Center/Small Faces are asking folk to complete a survey to be sure that the new Crown Hill Center Playground reflects the interests and needs of the Crown Hill Community at large. Please take a few moments to answer the four question survey here. Thanks!
In August 2009 we published a tree survey questionnaire here. We got quite a few responses, but we’re looking for more. Our grant proposal is currently being reviewed has been approved for funding by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. If approved, We will contract with an arborist to survey the neighborhood for trees, but Crown Hill is a large area to survey, and we can ensure the trees we think are significant are looked at by the arborist by identifying as many as possible ahead of time. We’ll be sponsoring a neighborhood walk in September 2010, and publishing a push-pin type map (similar to the one below) showing the trees. Please take a look around and submit trees you think are significant whether they are in your yard, a neighbors yard, a public space. UPDATE (May 2010): Our grant proposal was approved for funding by the DON. The questionnaire is still open, so take a look at the updated map below and submit more trees. Thanks
