City invites neighbors to participate in first ‘Find It, Fix It’ Community Walk

In his public safety address to the Seattle City Council last week, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray detailed a series of ‘Find it, Fix it’ Community Walks, focused on several crime hotspots.

At the walks, community residents, police, and city officials will walk together to identify physical disorder and solve it, hence the find it and fix it theme. The primary areas of focus are graffiti removal, street lighting, litter and garbage clean-up, and trimming overgrown bushes and trees.

The first Find It, Fix It Community Walk:
Wednesday, July 2, 7 - 9 p.m., 23rd Ave. S and S. Jackson St.
Meet in Red Apple parking lot (Map)
