This will be the 3rd year the EBCA has helped organize a Ballard Janes Walk in honor of Jane Jacobs who was a community organizer who helped save her neighborhood from destruction by the hands of outside interests. She invited everyone to see how cities actually work through experience, to go out and see what makes a neighborhood thrive, or to see what makes a neighborhood struggle. During this weekend, community organizers from all of the world will be giving tours in their own neighborhoods with this mission in mind. This year, the EBCA has teamed up with Seattle Greenways in this FeetFirst sponsored walk to explore Ballard urban green space of all shapes and sizes through a mix of residential blocks, commercial pockets and the historic industrial core.
