The Seattle Channel’s Roberto Romero hosted a recent episode of City Stream from the Greenwood Seafair Parade.

Seattle Department of Transportation’s Neighborhood Street Fund Program has released a summary of the July 19 public meeting that centered on why it wanted to remove the pedestrian overpass from Holman Road NW and 13th Avenue NW as it installs new signalized crosswalks. Many neighbors said they wanted the overpass to remain. SDOT plans to discuss neighbors’ concern and come up with a plan by the end of August. You can still email your comments and questions to NSFHolman@seattle.gov.

Leslie says she lost her wedding ring sometime Friday night between 5-8:30 p.m., somewhere along Greenwood Avenue North between the Phinney Center and North 76th Street.
