February 27th, 2014 · 17 Comments

Congratulations, Maple Leaf.

We – and our neighbors Victory Heights, Pinehurst and Northgate – won a $50,000 community project for being really good about recycling.

The CleanScapes “Thursday North” collection area won the 2013 Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards competition and will receive a $50,000 community improvement project.

Between now and April 15, 2014, Seattle residents have the opportunity to submit project proposals for construction in the “Thursday North” collection area. Representatives from the neighborhood community councils in the “Thursday North” area will recommend the winning project(s) to CleanScapes using the criteria below.

For background, see our previous post: “No way are we more trashy than Ravenna.”

The proposed project must be a visible and easily accessible capital project or community amenity that the public can actively use, such as playground equipment, public benches, bike racks, trail markers, community garden structures, or neighborhood information kiosks.

Project construction costs (including materials, labor and permit fees) must not exceed $50,000. The award money can be used to fund more than one Project. The project(s) must be located in the winning neighborhood collection area.

The deadline to submit a project proposal is April 15, 2014. The project must be completed by December 2014.

Please complete the proposal form and submit to CleanScapes by April 15, 2014.
