We Heart Hosmer! (Part 2) Walking Tour #6 Thank You!

Special thanks to our District 5 City Council Member Joe Bushnell, previous District 5 City Council Member & current SNAPs Committee member Chris Beale, Greg Tanbara from the Pierce County Health Department, local Black Bear Frozen Yogurt owner Abdul Coleman, local Wayne + Flitch owner Brett Johnson, & Richard Gardner from the City’s Transportation Commission for joining us!

Well, it was another glorious Saturday morning in the South End for Walking Tour #6! From 72nd to 84th along Hosmer, we picked up about 6 bags of litter & discussed some great ideas for improvement. Here were some of the highlights… let us know your thoughts!

  • Road over I-5 at 80th for improved traffic flow & I-5 Southbound access
  • Traffic calming by road narrowing to two lanes with protected bike lanes & street parking for more walkable community vibes
  • Planted medians
  • Crosswalks to Pierce Transit stops on west side of street
  • Pocket park or additional trees at NW corner of 84th
  • Sound barrier along I-5
  • Rename Hosmer to signify commitment to change

Want to join a future Walking Tour? Sign up below!
