Highland Park Improvement Club updates
SPD updates

1) Micro-Community Policing Plan Focus Group with Jennifer Burbridge, Seattle University Graduate Research Analyst for Seattle Police Department- SW Precinct

What is a Micro-Community Policing Plan Focus Group?
For neighborhoods in Southwest Precinct area about 1) knowledge of the micro-community policing plan project, 2) interactions with the Seattle Police Department, 3) crime and safety concerns and 4) suggested improvements for each of your unique neighborhoods!

Seattle University is partnering with the Seattle Police Department, conducting qualitative research on community crime concerns so that SU researchers can collaborate with SPD leadership in improving the city’s community policing initiative. Outreach to diverse communities in Seattle is a key part of this initiative and is essential for understanding how to address unique crime concerns throughout the city.

2) Developing our own Neighborhood Design Guidelines for Highland Park!

The Seattle Design Guidelines are the cornerstone of the City’s Design Review Program and the primary tool used by the Design Review Boards for evaluating proposed new development.

What are Neighborhood Specific Design Guidelines?
Design Review uses both the Citywide Guidelines and guidelines that are specific to individual neighborhoods. Once adopted by the City Council, neighborhood-specific design guidelines augment the Citywide Guidelines. Together they are the basis for project review within the neighborhood. Currently, neighborhoods such as Morgan Junction, Greenwood, Ballard, Uptown, Downtown, and Wallingford have neighborhood specific design guidelines.
