It’s a new year! With the new year, our NNN members are busy with resolutions from walking more to reading more. We have many walking groups (and recently added more as requested.) We’ve also added more lunch events and new locations. If you’re a full-service member, we hope your New Year’s resolution includes a commitment to use your membership benefits! Volunteers are standing by ready and willing to help! It’s easy to make a service request. Just call 206-484-5014 or email: Services@northwestneighborsnetwork.org  We look forward to hearing from you!

House Number Visibility = Safety

In an emergency, every second counts. Be sure that emergency services, police, fire, medic, ambulance, and crime watch volunteers can read your house numbers.

The best numbers are:

  • Visible on the house and from the street.
  • Constructed using contrasting colors to distinguish the background and the numbers
  • At least three inches tall.
  • Visible at night
If your house numbers need a refresh in the new year, contact services@northwestneighborsnetwork.org and we'll send someone to help!
