Kudos to the DON!

The DON?? That's the Department of Neighborhoods for the City of Seattle. As part of their updating of neighborhood plans, this time around they are coming out to the community to solicit input from residents, rather than wait in City Hall for people to show up. What a great idea!

We had over 25 elderly residents today participate in a focus group and express their opinions on land use, transportation, housing, open space, capital facilities, and utilities. Not something our seniors often get to comment on, for sure!

And they were able to do it in their own language, in a setting comfortable to them. Good work and bravo to new DON Director Stella Chao!

If you'd like to put in your own 2 cents, go to the Department of Neighborhoods website and make yourself heard!
