Plan for PrideFest Capitol Hill
(and get your free spot - even if it's just to open up
a space in front of your business) 

As we've reported in past newsletters, all current Broadway BIA rate-payers in good standing are able to, courtesy of the Broadway BIA, get a FREE 10x10 booth space for this year's festival. Booth space if first-come, first-served, so we recommend you complete your booking in the next 1-2 weeks to guarantee your place. If you'd like more than (1) 10x10 space, additional space is available at a discount.

BOOK YOUR FREE 10x10 SPACE AT PRIDEFEST CAPITOL HILL:

Last year there were 40,000 attendees at PrideFest Capitol Hill and for many businesses, it's the busiest day of the year. If you can't do a booth, then please come and enjoy the festivities! Four stages, outdoor bars and restaurants, craft vendors, and all the usual splendor of Broadway in Summer.


Your Ratepayer Dollars Hard at Work:

The Broadway BIA has a contract with Recology StreetScapes to sweep the sidewalks, remove graffiti,  bio -hazards and posters 7 days a week. If you see a problem (overflowing garbage or graffiti, for example), use the info at the bottom of this and every BBIA e-mail to call Recology. It's an easy and quick way to get issues resolved. We are working with a new StreetScapes manager for the BBIA and he and Recology have been very responsive to issues along Broadway.

Here is a side by side comparison of Feb 2017 and 2018 clean up stats :

Please contact customer service 24/7 at  seattle@recology.com   or call   (206) 859-6700 to report graffiti, illegal dumping, sharps and biohazards.  Graffiti should be removed within 24 hours and sharps and biohazards will be removed in three hours.

URGENT: Feedback Needed on the Proposed Changes to the Broadway/First Hill Streetcar 

The project, as proposed, entails removing all left hand turn lanes going southbound on Broadway from John to James. If this were to happen, much of the Pike Pine corridor east of Broadway would be cut off from anyone traveling by car southbound on Broadway.  
It is important that SDOT hear from as many of you as possible regarding the proposed changes. The Broadway BIA has reviewed the recommendations and oppose the proposed changes.

Please send any feedback to the SDOT contact at:  Jonathan.Dong@seattle.gov

Añejo and Junkichi Restaurants Now Open on Broadway!
The BIA would love to welcome Añejo Mexican restaurant (at the old Dilletante spot at Republican/Broadway) and Junkichi robatayaki grill (old Einstein Bagels location between John and Thomas), two great additions to our community.

Capitol Hill Blog Review of Añejo - "Añejo brings traditional flavors - and plenty of tequila - to Broadway"

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT HOMELESS OUTREACH SERVICES
Starting on April 1 , GEOGRAPHIC-BASED HOMELESS OUTREACH SERVICES WERE TEMPORARILY DISCONTINUED ON CAPITOL HILL. Through the city, funding has been shifting to groups serving specific populations. The BBIA is working with other community groups and the city to make sure this is a temporary blip and that this outreach continues to serve the community in 2018. Stay tuned for more information on that.
