23rd Avenue Action Plan
Take a look at our new Seattle Community Toolkit to find out how the City can help you, your neighborhood, or your business. There are programs, grants, loans, and a variety of other resources available. See if one is right for you.
We partnered with community stakeholders (residents, neighborhood associations, community organizations, business and property owners) to identify assets, issues, resources and opportunities in the three 23rd Avenue community cores.
Together with Public Outreach and Engagement Liaisons (POELs) and the Advisory Core Team we will continue to ensure an inclusive process where the community can identify specific strategies and projects that will support implementation of the Action Plan over the next several years.
There are many ways you can participate:
Final Community Open House
We have hosted a series of community meetings since early 2013 to seek community feedback and approval of the Action Plan, Urban Design Framework, and rezoning proposals. We post meeting details here when available. You can also sign up for email updates to be notified of any project news.
Community Resource Fairs
These three Central Area community cores have active groups, individuals, and organizations already working to preserve and enhance the health, culture, and vitality of the neighborhood. Community resource fairs will be opportunities for them to showcase their work and services, and for you to connect with them.
As part of the City's commitment to Inclusive Outreach and Engagement, we will use a number of approaches to make it easy for stakeholders to participate. This includes efforts to specifically reach historically underrepresented community members whose opinions may otherwise go unrecognized. In partnership with the community, the ACT, and POELs, we will work to include voices of our youth, seniors, the African / Black American community, immigrants and refugees, people living with disabilities, working families, and the Hispanic community.
