The City of Sequim is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to host a “Coffee and Chat” meeting on Monday, September 14, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Rainshadow Coffee Roasting Company, located at 157 W. Cedar Street. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss a downtown neighborhood revitalization program and to hear from citizens about neighborhood needs.
Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County (HFHCC) has selected the City of Sequim as a premiere Neighborhood Revitalization focus location. HFHCC has allocated $5,000 from private donations and fundraising efforts for the Sequim project. In addition, the Sequim Sunrise Rotary has approved a $3,500 grant which will be matched by the Rotary Foundation District Community Grant totally $12,000 for the neighborhood revitalization in Sequim.
Typical HFHCC Neighborhood Revitalization projects include weatherization, critical repair, and rehabilitation of residential properties. Labor for the projects will come from qualified Neighborhood Revitalization applicants (lending sweat equity to their project), HFHCC volunteers, Sequim Sunrise Rotarians, and volunteers from other Sequim community groups that are interested in participating.
Habitat for Humanity will be conducting a “Saturday Survey” on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to noon and will be going door to door in the neighborhoods west of Sequim Avenue between Highway 101 and Fir Street to evaluate neighborhood needs.
