Council of Neighborhoods (CoN) representatives working with the City of Shoreline on a pilot project called "Adopt a Trail" were out on Friday morning, June 11, weeding flower beds along the Interurban Trail.  

Representatives from some of the 14 Neighborhoods in the City of Shoreline worked to weed and beautify the planted beds between the Shoreline signature bridges at N 155th and Aurora Avenue.

The Council extends an invitation to all Shoreline residents and businesses to join them for the next session on Saturday, June 19, from 10 am to noon, with other sessions to be held throughout the summer.

The participants report that the weeding project was excellent exercise and the results were rewarding.

Volunteers for the first event:
  • Arthur Peach, CoN Chairman, Briarcrest
  • Lisa Surowiec, CoN Vice Chair, Richmond Highlands
  • Sheri Ashleman, CoN Secretary, Richmond Beach
  • Judy Allen, Innis Arden
  • Gretchen Atkinson, Meridian Park
  • Patty Hale, Ridgecrest
  • Nora Smith, Office of Neighborhoods
The Echo Lake Neighborhood Association maintains the section of the Interurban Trail through Echo Lake Park at N 200th and Ashworth N. Their annual weeding party will be held on July 20 from 4 - 6 pm. 

For more information, contact Nora Smith at the Office of Neighborhoods, 206-801-2253.
