One thought on “Neighbors invited to Highland Park Find It, Fix It Community Walk This a Thursday!

  1. HPAC and Mr. Burgess,

    Sorry I will not be able to make the HPAC meeting tomorrow night as I have an evening meeting tomorrow evening. I have been reading along and like all the improvements you are planning via the Find it Fix it Walk and other things I have seen like the long needed staircase to Highland Park soccer field.

    On another subject I wanted to see if the newly formed Homeless RV park that has accumulated 50 to 60 RV’s, campers, and trailers at the bottom of Highland Park way (very east side of where Nickelsville used to be) is on your radar. I found the link below when it said there was 10 RV’s, they must be 60 strong now. I hope letters have been sent to the city already. Highland Park has already fought this battle too many times now to not have this at the foot of our neighborhood and have extra property crimes and such to continuously battle. Many HP residents are in the midst of selling their houses that they have worked hard on to build equity and this will not help them out in any way. Please put this on your agenda if it is not already as swift action is needed. Our neighborhood has been hit with this too many times the city needs to take action immediately. They are squatting illegally on public property.

    Each time one of these encampments is allowed to stay close to us it really has a negative affect on our neighborhood. Living on the north side of the West Crest Park against the green belt we have already been seeing the effect and having negative visitors from the Myers Way encampment the city is already allowing to endanger the green space owned by the city and the taxpayers. Each time there are these large encampments near our house I have to fear for my three kids playing in the yard when we have seen meth/drug addicts and very inebriated people walking through our neighborhood and stumbling into our yards.


    NEW CAMP: RVs leave SODO, move to east West Seattle lot … FIRST REPORT, 5:53 PM THURSDAY: Just yards from where the city almost set up an “RV safe lot” last year before scrapping the idea, an unofficial RV camp is taking …

    Thank you for all your time and efforts and any information you can share on this! I am going to pass this along to the 20 people that I keep in contact within the neighborhood and encourage all of them to write the city and anyone else that will listen as soon as possible. I know three people that have their houses on the market now and this will really negatively impact their values and marketability which is a very sad and disrespectful thing for the city to do to its hard working tax paying homeowners!

    Todd Emery 40 year HP resident.
