Neighborhood welcome sign
Status: Installed February 2012 at the front entrance to the San Francisco St Bakery

NENA was awarded a generous City of Olympia Neighborhood Matching Grant to create a beautiful and lyrical neighborhood welcome sign that's unlike any you've ever seen. The sign will be a series of steel “reeds” of grass, each etched with verbs that convey our neighborhood’s vibrancy and diversity. Thank you to everyone who voted on the verbs included on the sign!
      The sign was designed and built by local architect Katie Cox and metal sculpture artist Rus Geh who both live in our neighborhood. Katie and Rus are the team who designed, fabricated and installed the spectacular metal and cedar kiosk at the SF bakery that now serves as our neighborhood bulletin board.

Roosevelt Traffic Safety Improvement Documents Sept 2008

One of NENA’s long-term goals has been achieved! This project—more than eight years in the making—is the centerpiece of NENA’s efforts to realize our vision of transforming our neighborhood into a safe and beautiful place to get active and get connected. The project is funded with monies generated by the OSD levy that passed in February. OSD estimates the total project will cost about $80,000. The original estimate, which was developed in 2006 when the economy was stronger, came in at more than $105,000. These costs don’t include the $15,000 in grant funding NENA secured to pay for the initial planning, design and engineering work, and the hundreds of volunteer hours our neighborhood collectively contributed to this project. If you have questions about the project, please contact Tim Byrne or Paul Clark with OSD's Capital Planning and Construction office at 596-8560 or at tbyrne@osd.wednet.edu.
