In 2014 the Fremont Neighborhood Council took on a number of projects, including:
- Supported neighborhood efforts for increased pedestrian safety on Fremont Avenue, N 39th, and Stone Way N—improvements have been made on Stone Way and will be made on Fremont Avenue in 2015
- Pressed successfully for restoration of the awning at Fremont Ave. and N 34th so bus riders again have protection from the rain
- Provided input on the Fremont Siphon Replacement Project design, proposed artwork and construction impacts
- Monitored several land use projects in the area and pressed for improved designs
- Monitored and provided input on proposals for changes in public transportation impacting Fremont
- Supported stewardship of neighborhood murals, including the 46th Street and Bridge Way murals under Aurora
- Began a review of the Fremont Neighborhood Plan
For 2015, these committees and projects are in the works. Sign up for one, or propose a project of your own.
- Land Use – Monitor important construction, zoning and environmental impacts as development in Fremont continues
- Transportation – Promote and monitor transportation and traffic issues as population increases and the City restores Metro funding through Seattle’s self-taxation
- Communications – Maintain FNC communications on website and other media
- Parks – Ernst Park, next to the Fremont Library, is funded for expansion into the currently empty lot next door and FNC input into design will be important
- Lake Union District Council – Represent FNC at larger District Council
