It takes a village to continually tend the gardens along Queen Anne Ave at Galer, Boston, and McGraw. We need You to giveBIG to nurture them so the heart of our neighborhood remains vibrant and welcoming.

As inspiration, generous neighbors---Jeff & Sharon Parker, Beth Bunnell, the Lawson-Sarkowsky Family, Unmesh Wankhede & K. R. Prabha, Maureen Frisch, Kathy & Tim King, and Lori Kent & Tracy Wald---will match your donation dollar for dollar, up to a total of $6,100, making your gift twice as valuable!!

You can preschedule your gift now or giveBIG on May 4-5 to help   


 to keep Queen Anne Ave picture perfect. 

Thank you!

Denny, Ellen, Judy, Kathy, Laura, Margaret

Maria Barrientos and the Safeway Project Design Team will hold a virtual community meeting Monday evening, November 9, 2020 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. 

From Maria Barrientos

"Our project design has been chugging along and we just received notice from the city that we were cleared to schedule our Design Review Meeting (DRB).  The date for the DRB is December 2, 2020  from 5:00-8:00 pm.  This will be an online design review.  We will be submitting the final DRB design presentation package to the City by  November 18th.  The DRB package will be posted on-line after that.

We invite you to participate in a design review presentation with us prior to that.  We would like the opportunity to show you all how the design has evolved, particularly on Queen Anne Avenue N and get your feedback in time to make any adjustments before we submit the final package.

We are calling this project 21Boston, as the residential entry will be at the corner of Boston 
and 1st Ave N.

As you recall, the new Safeway store will take up most of the Queen Anne Avenue N fa├žade.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions prior to that. My contact information is
