Seattle Neighborhoods: Engaging Your Community

461420603
As you know, the City of Seattle is shifting our approach to outreach and engagement and we are looking for ideas on how we can keep residents better informed about projects, events, opportunities, and issues.

We have created a simple two-minute survey to get feedback on how people want to engage with city government and what we can do to make it easier for them to weigh in and participate.

Our goal is to hear from as many people as possible! But, in order to achieve that, we need your help!

Would you be willing to circulate this survey within your community?

The survey can be found at http://bit.ly/EngageSeattle-survey.

We appreciate any help you can provide in getting the word out to your contacts.

Thank you for joining us in bringing more voices to the table and making our outreach and engagement work for everyone!

Lake City Meadowbrook & Matthews Beach Street Resurfacing July-August 2016


Overview

What is Microsurfacing?

Microsurfacing is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement. It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction.

This is a cost-effective method to renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities. This preventive maintenance process protects the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation.

Similar to painting a house, microsurfacing creates a protective layer which preserves the underlying structure and prevents the need for more expensive repairs in the future.

Microsurfacing is seeing growing use by transportation agencies, including SDOT.
