Hi Neighbors! I have been silent the last few months as it seemed the crime and safety issues had died down a bit. However, the last month has proven to be a very active one for criminals. I am aware of at least a dozen car prowls recently in Blue Ridge and North Beach. While the thieves have broken a few car windows, it seems they are mostly seizing opportunities to clean out unlocked cars. Additionally, one neighbor reported an attempt to take the bicycle rack off the exterior of their car.
The City of Seattle is currently evaluating approaches to homelessness in Seattle. If this is a topic that interests you, and it may given our proximity to Carkeek park, I encourage you to get educated on the proposals and get involved in the discussion.
