The city is distributing door hangers to businesses and residences explaining April 10’s Summer Streets event in Greenwood and Phinney. Summer Streets will close down Phinney/Greenwood Avenue from 65th to 87th streets from 6-9 p.m., in conjunction with the monthly Art Up/Open Up art walk, to allow neighbors to mingle and have fun. Major intersections will remain open.
Here’s what the front of the hangers look like:

Businesses are encouraged to have a sidewalk sale, put tables and chairs in the street for people to sit and eat, have a fashion show, or do anything else fun they can think of.
“The city and Chamber think this is a great chance for folks to connect with their neighbors and an opportunity to support local businesses and artists,” expains Dawn Schellenberg, a Strategic Advisor for Seattle Department of Transportation, and a Phinney/Greenwood resident. “We are still looking for ‘intersection guardians’ to help direct traffic around the event and to share information on what is happening. Anyone interested in helping out can contact us at email@example.com.”
