In 2014, Mayor Ed Murray initiated Seattle Find It, Fix It Community Walks, a series of Mayor-led walks that help to neighborhoods one block at a time. During these walks, the Mayor, city officials, Police Chief, and neighbors will come together to identify areas for revitalization in each neighborhood.
This year, The Mayor’s Office has partnered with Cities of Service – a national nonprofit that works to implement high-impact volunteer strategies – to take the community walks one step further. The City of Seattle was awarded grant money, in addition to two AmeriCorps VISTA members, to support the community project mini-grant program. The goal is to encourage volunteer efforts of community members who are working together to make their communities healthier, safer, and vibrant. For more information, click here.
