Mural Project, Wallingford Survey

The 46th Street Mural Project sent out an email blast on Friday, inviting people to share their thoughts on newly completed mural beneath Aurora Avenue N.

Turns out, though, that the survey asks about a lot more than the mural.  The following issues, as they relate to Fremont & Wallingford, are included:

  • senior services
  • multi-use residential/commercial buildings
  • low income housing
  • single family housing
  • multi family housing
  • art
  • attitudes about the neighborhood

The best news yet is that the survey closes tomorrow: Monday, Dec 13th.  So hurry on up and weigh in.  Data will be shared with grant donors, the Department of Neighborhoods (City of Seattle) and the community at large.

Find the survey at til Monday.

    That was one of the most poorly designed surveys I’ve taken in a long time. Very strange.

    Agree, Susan. Although I am a big fan of the process used to create this mural, I am regrettably not a big fan of the actual art it produced. Imho, to avoid the endless visual captivity some of our more portable public art produces (especially in highly trafficked areas), and to encourage broad participation in such projects, I would like to see these murals “time out” maybe at the end of a year or two and another take its place.

    What was the purpose of the survey? Who paid for the Survey?
    Who paid for the Mural? Normally you conduct a survey so you can quote the survey, for some reason. Is area being considered by a development company, for apartment?

    Hi, George — all good questions. I know the survey was part of the 46th Street Mural Project, which was funded by the Seattle Dept of Neighborhoods. It was called a “community attitudes” survey. That’s about all I know!
