Reviewing summer public safety plans
Mayor McGinn is visiting each precinct in Seattle to tour neighborhood hot spots and talk with precinct commanders about what they’re doing to prepare for the summer months. Read about our visit South Precinct to talk with Captain Mike Nolan about his plans to combat violent crime and help residents feel safer in their neighborhoods. He gave us an update on how utilizing their mobile precinct has helped deter crime in hot spot areas.

Stay tuned on our blog for more on the state of public safety in your neighborhood.

Launching the 2012 Only in Seattle campaign
In a continued effort to encourage discovery and exploration of new neighborhoods and businesses in Seattle, Mayor McGinn announced both the addition of three new neighborhoods to be featured in the 2012 Only in Seattle Campaign, and the launch of Only in Seattle Sundays – a special once-a-month neighborhood discount day.

“The locally-owned small businesses featured in Only in Seattle are great for visitors and locals alike,” said Mayor McGinn. “Our diverse neighborhoods are economically and culturally strong in large part due to these thriving small, independent businesses. Only in Seattle is about more than supporting our local economy, it’s about celebrating what makes Seattle special.”
