Wrap up in Hillyard

The meeting is just about over here around 8 p.m. with a few more announcements. Gotta say this group covered a lot of ground tonight. If you live in the area, this would be a good meeting to catch up with.

WDOT and neighborhood clean up -

The Washington Department of Transportation (WDOT) is working it's way through Hillyard with the north-south corridor. Hillyard neighborhood representatives meet with WDOT every week.
There is a bigger cleanup crew than ever before - the three neighborhoods Bemiss, Hillyard and Whitman, April 16 is the date they are looking at. Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There may be some new disposal options this year, such as clean green and other ways of recycling.

The blog is at the Hillyard Neighborhood Council

Tonight the Hillyard Blog is at the Hillyard Neighborhood Council meeting at the Northeast Community Center (4001 N. Cook Street)

Here are some updates on neighborhood business and activities:
The Festival is turning 100 years old in August - more volunteers are desperately needed. Please join the meetings at Northeast Community Center, the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in conference room B. Next meeting is on Feb. 22.
The Merchants Committee is planning a tree promotion in connection with Arbor Day and has just gotten 2,000 seedling trees to donate. They will be given out between Earth Day and Arbor Day in late April.
Also, on May 28 there will be a car show in Hillyard. Stay tuned for more information.

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.
