Three projects get funding through Small & Simple fund
Posted by Geeky Swedes on March 29th, 2011
Three neighborhood projects have been approved for a Small & Simple grant through the Neighborhood Matching Fund. The Sunset Hill – Shilshole Gateway, the Bountiful Backyard Barter and Bring the Ring back to Ballard will each get funding totaling $37,861.
The Gateway project will engage neighbors to develop a plan and initial improvements to enhance the walkability and safety of the main southern connection between Sunset Hill and Shilshole.
Bountiful Backyard Barter is designed to foster ease and connectedness in the community of Ballard residents interested and engaged in creating and sharing homemade and homegrown food.
Bring the Ring Back to Ballard will install an automatic, programmable mechanism in Ballard’s existing historic bell structure, located at the corner of 22nd Ave NW and Ballard Ave NW. The bell will ring regularly and on demand for special occasions. We will have a public celebration to honor the return of the bell’s ring to Ballard.
