Residents came out for a morning stroll down the alleyway between 6th and 7th street and Molino and Stanley Avenue on Saturday, May 8th. Residents were asked to stroll the alleyway and provide feedback for future improvements. Special thanks to our wonderful volunteers Caity and Aaron Engel, Ketzie and Chris Diaz, Esmeralda Garcia and Jonathan Raspa, Cody Lusby, Janna Vandenberg, Chris Robson, Dawn Mendelson and Gretchen Swanson who made this event so successful! Thanks to our local businesses Coffee Drunk and 7th Street donuts! We truly loved seeing so many neighbors and stay tuned for another interactive alleyway stroll coming soon! Questions?

The Community Within: Alleyway Improvement Project is a neighborhood initiative that seeks to improve and transform the physical space of alleyways as usable, welcoming spaces where neighbors can utilize these spaces for walking, biking, connecting, rolling, and driving. The goal of this project is to gather input from residents about their vision for alleyways in Rose Park Neighborhood.
