Until March 31st, the Fremont Arts Council (FAC) is soliciting resumes from anyone interested, and qualified, for a contract position doing fundraising and development for the non-profit organization that produces the world-famous, arts-rich Solstice Parade.

The FAC has a base of financial supporters, known (on a donor database) and unknown, willing and ready to fund the parade.  The fundraising goal is $16,000, and the Fremont community, including area businesses, has historically shown financial support for the FAC.  The Fundraising & Development Staffer would receive $2,500 plus potential bonuses for securing sponsorships and donations for the Solstice Parade, and for drafting a fundraising/development plan.  The Staffer would also be asked to coordinate and train board members and volunteers to assist with targeted fundraising activities, to review and update outreach materials, to prepare Thank You letters and to produce a final report with lessons learned.

The contract position will take time and effort, but it will be instrumental in making the 2015 FAC Solstice Parade happen.  If you can do the work, and want to give generously of your time to this arts extravaganza, please submit your resume now to

Fremont Bridge Closures This Weekend

Kirby Lindsay

This weekend, March 28th & 29th, in the wee hours (midnight – 7a,) the Fremont Bridge will be closed to all vehicles (cars, trucks and transit) while the construction crew finishes painting the 100-year-old structure.  During the closure, two five-minute bridge crossing opportunities will be offered for pedestrians and bicycle riders at 1:20a and 2:20a.  The Bridge will be open to all maritime traffic during the closure.

Since September 2014, a contractor hired by the City of Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has been cleaning, prepping and painting the bridge.  Delays due to bad weather (or bad forecasts) have delayed the work.  The contractor added a second shift to make up some of the time, but closures like the one this weekend help speed along the work.

Painting of the Fremont Bridge will be completed soon.  Stay tuned, here, for an announcement about a conclusion celebration sometime in April.

For project information, contact Art Brochet, of SDOT, at 206/615-0786 or

Kirby Lindsay

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods has funds, through its Small Sparks program, for neighborhood-based clean-up events that qualify under the Spring Clean program.  The deadline for applications for these matching fund dollars is six-weeks prior to the scheduled community clean-up event.

The Small Sparks Fund provides matching dollars for neighborhood-initiated projects that promote community engagement, like neighborhood-based clean-ups.  Community groups can request up to $1,000 to enhance activities with publicity, plants, or special clean-up supplies.

Spring Clean, a clean-up event hosted by the Seattle Public Utilities (SPU), takes place over April and May, through partnerships with the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods, and the Department of Transportation.  Spring Clean provides opportunities for residents to take part in keeping their communities tidy, with bags, gloves, safety vests and more provided by SPU.

For information on the process for applying for a Small Sparks fund grant, visit the Department of Neighborhoods website or call 206/233-0093 – interested applicants must pre-register on the web-based application system.  For more information on Spring Clean, contact the hotline at 206/233-7187 or visit the ‘Get Involved’ Spring Clean website.
