A lot has happened since we last spoke, talk us through some of what you’ve been up to during this time.
We’ve had quite the eventful year in Pioneer Square. In the last 9 months, I’ve been supporting a planning project called the Northeast Pioneer Square Framework Plan. We’ve worked with our consultants, MIG SVR and Broadview Planning, to put together a 20-person steering committee that includes government agencies, property owners, residents, business owners, and service providers to guide the work. So far the committee has met three times and has one final meeting before the framework plan is finalized. While a progress report will be released to wrap up 2021, this document will serve to guide the next 10 years of development in the area, meaning this work will be far from over. It feels good to see the work that came out of the Parks and Gateways plan finally coming to life.

Looking around, I see so many great things happening in Pioneer Square. Pioneer Square is doing what it does best – remaining authentic through it all. The good days have been many and the bad days tend to hit hard. A couple weeks ago over 30 volunteers came down to work with the Alliance and Seattle Department of Transportation to weed and mulch the First Ave S medians. It was such a fun event and really proved that even if recovery has its ups and downs, there are people that care enough to keep showing up.Continue reading “Monthly Staff Feature: Lisa Howard, Alliance for Pioneer Square ED”
