After a report of a sexual assault in January — and growing concerns about graffiti and drug use — Loyal Heights neighbors have formed a new group to take better care of Salmon Bay Park.
It’s called the Salmon Bay Park Stewards, “a grassroots group dedicating to ensuring Salmon Bay Park remains a safe, beautiful, vibrant place for all.”
Among the group’s priorities: establish a block watch group, apply for public funding to revitalize the park and organize social events to connect with neighbors.
Organizers are looking for anyone who’s interested in joining. The group’s kickoff meeting is Thursday, March 22nd at 6:30 p.m. at Ballard Homestead. If you’re interested in attending, you’re asked to RSVP by this Friday by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
