RVP Barrier Replacement Planning Meeting #2

Goal: To identify alternatives to the utility pole barriers (and new chain link fence) that reinforces/defines the boundaries of Riverview hayfields/Park in a way that keeps cars in designated car areas, enhances pedestrian safety and maintains the sense of openness and welcome that neighbors cherish

  1. Review challenges & opportunities regarding the park boundary – did we miss anything?
  2. Brainstorm ideas for approaches to reinforcing the boundaries of RVP – do we want to maintain any section of the new chain links fence (Parks would like an answer on this soon as they have a bid on removal of the fence posts on hand. Carol Baker informed us the fence will be removed and installed in another park)?
  3. Discuss maintenance and other potential impacts of design alternatives
  4. Come up with our preferred plan for barrier treatments for RVP
  5. Where are we now and what next?

Southwest Precinct: CRIME & SAFETY FOCUS GROUPS For
South Delridge, Highland Park, & Riverview

Seattle University is partnering with the Seattle Police Department to conduct qualitative research on community crime concerns. Qualitative concerns allow SU researchers to collaborate with SPD leadership to improve the city’s community policing initiatives. As a part of the process evaluation of the Seattle Police Department’s Micro-Community Policing Plans (MCPP), Seattle University is looking for community members to participate in an hour-long discussion regarding community perceptions of crime, safety, and police legitimacy, as well as knowledge of and satisfaction with the MCPP.

Information obtained from the focus group will help inform your neighborhood’s MCPP so please come share your concerns and suggestions! Please feel free to email me directly any questions that you have regarding the focus group.
