Saturday, September 27th: Grass-Roots Test Projects for Seward’s Franklin Avenue

We begin testing project ideas generated by the Franklin Avenue Planning* Task Forces with an event at the corner of Franklin Avenue and 27th Avenue S from 2 – 5pm.

Test projects will include:
  • Grass-Roots Gardening (1 hour shifts start early at 9am)
  • Temporary Pavement Painting
  • Prototype Bike Repair Statio
  • Temporary benches, sidewalk seating, bike racks and other street furniture
  • and more
This event coincides with an Open House celebrating the renovation of Frankly 27th: the building that is home to True Thai, Jim’s Barbershop, Seward Redesign, Fast and Furless, Animal Rights Coalition, ArtiCulture, and Dr Gary Miller, Chiropractor. Food, refreshments and activities will be available.

Come prepared to meet your neighbors, get dirty and see our potential, as a community, to make an impact on Franklin Avenue!

*Franklin Avenue Planning is a joint effort of Seward Redesign, Seward Neighborhood Group (SNG) and Seward Civic and Commerce Association (SCCA). To sign up for a gardening shift, email for more information, see"
