After some early planning meetings, the Olympic Hills Home Zone officially kicked off in the Summer of 2022. In late August there were four community led walks through the neighborhood. We had a solid turnout of over 30 people per walk including SDOT Director Greg Spotts. Residents shared their thoughts and concerns with SDOT, Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) staff and elected officials.
