The first Lid I-5 Community Open House is next week! You, your colleagues, and your neighbors are all invited to visit and learn more about this grassroots campaign to build a better city. Details:
Tuesday, June 27
6:00 PM – 7:30
The Cloud Room at Chophouse Row (1424 11th Avenue, 4th floor)
If you’re on Facebook, click here to RSVP.
This is a great chance for you to meet the people behind the logo! In addition, the Lid I-5 Steering Committee has achieved major progress in recent months and is excited to share the latest updates with our coalition partners and neighbors. Partial funding has been identified for a crucial Feasibility Study and the City of Seattle has offered to take the lead, but work remains to be done and community input is critical.
Councilmember Sally Bagshaw will be joining us to offer remarks on why she supports this grassroots campaign.
Learn more about the lid concept, why the time to plan is now, and how you can help Seattle become a more connected, sustainable, and equitable city.
We’ll also have presentations from the artists behind the Equity Line, “a linear series of housing developments and urban trail as a lid over parts of Interstate 5 in downtown and as new construction in parts of the Jungle”, and NERO Commons, a concept for an urban village lid at the future NE 130th Street light rail station.
The event is an open house format with a presentation starting at 6:30 PM.
The Cloud Room offers a cash bar and light refreshments. Special accommodations are required for anyone under the age of 21 – if this applies to you please send us a private message.
