Find It, Fix It Community Walks

Initiated in 2014, the Find It, Fix It Community Walks help to improve neighborhoods one block at a time. During these walks, neighbors, police, and City officials walk together to identify physical elements in the neighborhood that make it feel unsafe or poorly maintained. Examples include overgrown trees, graffiti, street light outages, and litter. Once the elements are identified, the City and community work together to fix the problems.

Community Walks have been held throughout the city, resulting in hundreds of infrastructure improvements - from new trash and recycle bins to upgraded street lights.

In partnership with Cities of Service, the City of Seattle is offering up to $3,000 in mini-grants for North Beacon Hill, a 2017 Find It, Fix It Community Walk neighborhood, to support community-led revitalization and beautification projects.

What you can do with a Community Project Grant:

  • Host litter pick-ups or graffiti clean-up events
  • Paint a mural on a public space
  • Create and install new educational or wayfinding signage
  • Plant flowers along a sidewalk or street median
  • And so much more! How have you always dreamed of improving your neighborhood?

For more information please review our Community Grant Application or contact Hailey Oppelt at (206) 386-1907. The deadline for applications is Thursday, March 15, 2018. Completed applications can be sent to

If you would like to volunteer for a community project in North Beacon Hill, please contact Hailey Oppelt at or at (206) 386-1907.
