Broken and Trying
Update: Cause of Death of Homeless Man in Ballard Due to Homicide, Police Say
Still Much Work To Be Done in SODO
What About This? @MayorofSeattle’s homelessness dashboard shows nearly 200 tents/RV’s in Sodo. Unfortunately, it does not show exact locations being tracked. I’m trying to figure out who’s responsible for this lot near Airport Way S, across street from BMW dealership. Dashboard Sodo’s got a long way to go. @MayorofSeattle’s office says there are likely more RV’s/ tents in this neighborhood. Frustrating for some who want exact locations and addresses of current encampments on dashboard. #s will be updated quarterly.

City says if people email or use Find It Fix It to report, it will be addressed in 48hrs. It’s now been roughly 3 days and 2 more tents have appeared. Last Week Only this “double tent” was set up again on 3rd. Ave in Pioneer Square, in this same area that was recently cleared by city crews. Last Month More than a dozen tents were removed from 3rd Ave in Pioneer Square.

Not Allowed @seattledot keeps saying anyone caught putting these blocks down on a public street or sidewalk could he fined $2K. But so far, only warnings. At this point, many biz owners and neighbors say they’re willing to take chance, rather than see tents or RV’s return. Block Party Georgetown RV enforcement/clean up aftermath from last week. Biz’s now busting out “eco-blocks” at 7th/Fidalgo until city leaders address: How do you prevent campers from Read More ›
