Neighbors are creating a living memorial and landscaping project after the violent, fatal events of March 27, 2019 at and around #75 bus stop at Sand Point Way and Bartlett Avenue Northeast in Seattle.
We honor the memories of 2 people who were killed and 2 others who were injured. We heal the wounds of traumatized citizens and remind visitors about the perils of gun violence. We are beautifying this space.
We have support from the survivors of the shooting event, surviving members of the relevant families, Lake City Neighborhood Alliance, neighbors from the immediate area and the larger region.
In this phase, we will plant 3 evergreens, 4 flowering trees, and low shrubs. Signage will educate people about the memorial. Our team has already cleared the area of overgrowth and trash. We have planted 1 oak, provided by the City Arborist with sponsorship from the City of Seattle. More phases will come.
Join us in our efforts! Every donation and every work party helps.
