ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The West Seattle Junction Association and West Seattle Chamber of Commerce applied for and have received a $20,000 grant help with marketing and in the words of Lora Swift answer the question, "Who is West Seattle now?"

Swift, Executive Director of the West Seattle Junction Merchants Association said she and Chamber CEO Lynn Dennis applied for a grant to move all West Seattle businesses in the right direction by getting some research done. Swift took over the job from Susan Melrose last summer, selling her Hotwire Online Coffeehouse to take the new job.

"The purpose is to begin the groundwork conversations between our business districts, to look for the commonality and what the scalability is for West Seattle," said Swift, "So we have a common, unified voice.

Grants offered by a partnership between the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development (OED), the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods (DON), and the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture (OAC) totalling approximately $1,400,000 were made available for the Only in Seattle Initiative in 2017.
