A photographic look back at 2009 on Beacon Hill

December 31st, 2009 at 4:59 pm | No Comments | Posted by admin

During the last year, many of you have contributed amazing photos to the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr. The photos you see here today were chosen from the nearly 700 photos that were taken and posted in the photo pool during 2009. Some were chosen because of their photographic beauty; others, because they captured newsworthy moments on the Hill. Some of these we’ve published before, and some we haven’t.

We would like to thank all of our wonderful Beacon Hill photographers for posting photos to the pool and their generosity in allowing us to share them with you. We hope you enjoy this look back at 2009. Happy New Year!

Improvements are coming soon to the Beacon Hill Playground, with $180,000 provided by the Parks and Green Spaces Levy. According to Seattle Parks’ project page, the plan is to provide access improvements and other site improvements, including bringing the play area into compliance with current play area safety standards.

Neighbors are invited to an open house next month to discuss the project design. The meeting will be Tuesday, January 5, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, at Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Avenue South.

For more information or to comment on the project, contact Kelly Davidson, 206-684-0998 or kelly.davidson@seattle.gov.

Thanks to Shelly Bates for the heads-up!
