The corner of 165th and 5th NE after work by two
utility districts
By Patty Hale

The Ridgecrest Neighborhood needs your expertise, ideas, and skills. Help plan a public beautification project in the heart of our neighborhood.

Please join us for our first Public Planning Meeting on:
Monday, April 29 at 7pm
Eastside Police Neighborhood Center, 521 NE 165th

Over the winter of 2012-13, Shoreline Water District and Shoreline Fire Department installed systems to increase the water pressure and aid in fire suppression for the Ridgecrest Neighborhood at the southwest corner of 165th & 5th NE. Prior to the work, the corner had been landscaped with trees and shrubs.

The RNA Board has already begun the process to apply for a Mini-Grant from the City of Shoreline, to beatify the corner. Ideas include, landscaping with drought-tolerant ground-cover plants, evergreen vines and shrubs, flowers, neighborhood signage, a public bench, a public art installation, and more. All would help to soften the effects of the utilities and fencing, while creating a sense of place at this core intersection in the Ridgecrest Neighborhood.

The purpose of the Planning Meeting will be to gather ideas and insight from our Ridgecrest Neighbors about how we might make this corner an appealing place to be proud of.
