Bill Zosel wins City Club People’s Choice Award

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Congratulations to Bill Zosel for winning a City Club People’s Choice Award!! Bill, the Mayor of 12th Avenue, has been a tireless advocate for the neighborhood and so deserves this recognition. He has been the driving force behind the 12th Avenue Stewardship Committee, been very active with the Squire Park Community Council, and been involved in everything happening in the neighborhood, from the First Hill Streetcar, new park design, planning the City’s first woonerf, and participating in citizen advisory committee for Seattle University.


Trace Lofts new retail tenants

Monday, November 15th, 2010

The word has been out for some time about the future retail tenants at Trace Lofts on the corner of 12th and Madison. We’re getting closer though to having some great new spots opening in the neighborhood!

Barre3, a pilates-yoga-ballet barre studio, is set to open for classes November 29.

Rex, a do-it-yourself dog washing business is going to open in February.  (Thanks to CHS for the interview with the owner.)

And of course, High Five Pie, brought to you by Dani Cone of Fuel Coffee, should be open after the holidays. (Again, thanks to CHS for reporting!)

We’re super excited to finally have that vacant corner filled…and especially excited since these are all great, community-serving tenants (not lame check cashing joints).

12th Avenue Meeting – CHANGE! – Transit meeting instead

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The 12th Avenue Stewardship will not be meeting at its usual time (the second Tuesday) this month.

Instead, we encourage all of you to take the time to attend a special town hall meeting with King County Councilmember Larry Phillips discussing transit, future budget issues, and findings from the regional task force.

Click here for more information.

Tuesday, November 9
Seattle University Campion Ballroom
914 E Jefferson Street

While this will be a larger conversation about King County Metro, we may have the chance to bring up 12th Avenue and Central Area transit needs, particularly the opportunity to move a bus line to 12th Avenue when the First Hill Streetcar is finished in a few years on Broadway.

Hope to see you next Tuesday at this important meeting!
