You are receiving this email because you live, work, or have shared your experiences regarding what has become to be known as the, “Leary Triangle” (Leary Way NW, 9th Ave NW, and NW Leary way).
In 2015, neighbors of the triangle began organizing to create a community gathering space at the triangle. Since then, unmanaged homeless encampments have populated the space, been removed, and returned – a cycle that has occurred multiple times. Neighbors continue to organize to make the Leary Triangle a space that everyone can use.
Conversations with many stakeholders and different city departments have previously not been centralized around one table with a dedicated facilitator. As your District 6 Councilmember I am dedicating myself and my staff to facilitating this work to centralize conversations and ensure everyone is working together in the same direction.
People have shared many different ideas about how to use the space, and we would like to get your feedback about how you would like to see the Leary Triangle used. Would you be willing to take a short survey to share your views?
