Project Description:

This group advances parks and open space improvements in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. They will host a block party to kick off a series of five coordinated neighborhood discussions about climate induced flooding and emergency planning. From these discussions, they will create a coordinated neighborhood response team and plan to address flooding and other emergencies, including how they involve the most vulnerable such as the elderly and disabled. This organization is also conducting community mobilizations around green infrastructure as part of a separate Rose Foundation grant.
