Is the parklet on NE 43rd at the Ave inspiring other neighborhood improvements?
Under consideration by the U District Partnership’s Marketing Committee is support for the sprucing up of the venerable University District Post Office. Perhaps with some planters (as shown).
The recently installed parklet, and a remodel of the community signage pillar in front of the Solstice café, are showing that when the community makes public space improvements, and cares for our existing public property, the property we care for is respected.
The Post Office will be re-painted in late summer. Let’s keep the momentum going with these and other neighborhood public space improvements. Encourage your favorite U-District merchants to improve their premises!
And let’s help the U District Partnership, the new neighborhood BIA, live up to its potential as a steward for our shared public spaces!
