Update to the Neighborhood – November 2013

Kristen Honeycutt Photo Co.-021Wow, is it really November? I find myself reflecting on this past year and how much has been accomplished. Pioneer Square has enjoyed many successes as well as trials during 2013. Such is the hard work of building and improving a neighborhood. Our thanks to each of you who have stepped up and joined us in making Pioneer Square better for everyone. When looking forward, we anticipate continuing our critical work to improve street disorder and safety with whomever is the victor in the Mayor’s race. Improving street civility and reducing suffering is critical to the future of Pioneer Square and all of downtown.

The Alliance is engaged in a year-end fund raising campaign to start 2014 even stronger than ever. If you haven’t contributed in the past or in this past year, now is the time to show your support for the Alliance and our work in the neighborhood. It’s all real easy, just click here.

And remember, we are a source of information about the ever challenging presence of the future coming at us as construction continues and expands: the tunnel, the gas main, street car lines and now the seawall replacement as well. (link to alliance website here) If you want to know about new restaurants and offerings, check out what Karen is saying. And then there are the events, parades, cooking classes, and fancy meals in the mall. There is always so much going on in our ever changing, complex neighborhood.

Once again, thank you for hanging in with Pioneer Square as we move into the future. See you in the neighborhood!
