John Coney

We sadly report that after battling leukemia John Coney, long-time community activist and FAP 86 Steering Committee member, died on August 7.  We will greatly miss John, one of the originators of the Uptown Alliance, the prime pusher for the Thomas Street Overpass into Myrtle Edwards Park, and numerous other Queen Anne endeavors. 

Framework Cultural Placemaking selected for the Feasibility Study

A team headed by Framework Cultural Placemaking has been selected to undertake the feasibility study. In addition to Framework led by Lesley Bain), the other members of the consulting team are Velocity Made Good (Perri Lynch Howard), Grid Engineering (Paul Diedrich) and Johnson Architecture and Planning (Steve Johnson). This team was selected because of their deep experience with public art projects, knowledge of the waterfront location and the adjacent businesses and property owners, and excellent contacts in the community that will help them "Hit the ground running."
