City of Seattle looking to help shape the future of Delridge

Bring your best ideas to their booth at Delridge Day Aug. 9

information from the City of Seattle

The City of Seattle is beginning a collaboration to produce a shared vision and action plan to continue improving the health and equity of the Delridge community.

Delridge is a unique area of West Seattle and home to a rich heritage, diverse communities and organizations. Over the years, the people of Delridge have worked with the City to create neighborhood assets such as Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail, Cottage Grove Park and affordable housing options. These and many other additions to the neighborhood are the result of community activism and the neighborhood plan completed in 1999.

Fifteen years have passed since the Delridge community completed their neighborhood plan and there are new opportunities to seize. The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and Department of Neighborhoods (DON) are kicking off the planning effort by asking the community to identify its priorities at Delridge Day. What do you think about the future of Delridge? Here’s how you can provide your feedback:

Jean Barton (middle) stands with members of S.A.F.E. outside of the home that she shares with her husband Byron Barton and their two sons. The family had owned the home for 61 years before it was foreclosed on and, as they allege, fraudulently auctioned to Triangle Properties Development.

Triangle Properties takes legal action to force Barton family from house

By Tim Clifford

Triangle Properties Development has issued a writ of Mandamus in King County Superior Court to force the Seattle Police Department to take action against the Barton family, who are back in their home after an attempted eviction by the King County Sheriff’s office on July 18, and arrest them for trespassing. In a press release from Triangle Properties Development lawyer Synthia Melton said:

“Mayor Murray’s refusal to uphold the law is undermining the legal process by preventing a property owner from lawfully using and possessing its property. The legal issues the mayor refers to in this case have already been determined by the courts. The mayor’s inaction is supporting criminal trespass, and can set dangerous precedent for how court ordered evictions will be executed, making it more difficult for law enforcement to perform its job”.
