Neighborhood events timing


The blog is back at the Hillyard Merchant Committee's meeting this morning - it's been a while since the last time. I am still impressed by the number of people who show up here, every Wednesday morning, at the Outlaw Cafe.
The conversation is about neighborhood events - and the timing of when to have festivals and neighborhood gatherings to best help local businesses.
What's your favorite neighborhood event? Why do you like it?

The next city-wide neighborhood event is Girls Day Out on Nov. 12 - find them on Facebook here.

Highlights from Wednesday morning

The blog made it - carefully on icy streets - to the meeting in the Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee meeting this morning. Councilmember Bob Apple is here today and about 20 neighbors and business owners are here, too.
There's a meeting today at 3:30 p.m. the Washington State Department of Transportation's office about the north-south freeway's progress. The office is located at 2714 N. Mayfair Street, that's one block east of Ruby Street on North Foothills Drive.
Representatives from the Hillyard neighborhood has been meeting with WSDOT on a regular basis since the Market Street restoration project began and they continue to meet on a regular basis.
  

The Hillyard Neighborhood Council is meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the East Central Community Center, 500 S. Stone.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
