Community Discussions: 7th Avenue Sidewalk

THE ENA Board’s Subarea Planning Core Team would like to invite all interested neighbors to a Community Discussion at the Swantown Inn & Spa during Community Clubhouse operation on December 19th between 11am and 12 noon.

The lack of a continuous sidewalk on 7th Avenue SE, linking the lower neighborhood with Lion’s Park has been an issue brought up constantly over the past 20 years. The Core Team has made real progress with the city in fixing this and would like to share developments.

Attendees will be treated to full coffee service and snacks, courtesy of the Swantown Inn & Spa.

For those who do not already know, the Community Clubhouse is a partnership between the Swantown Inn & Spa and ENA. You can read more about it here.

Community Clubhouse

The Eastside Neighborhood Association has partnered with the Swantown Inn & Spa, to create a community clubhouse for the neighborhood. Swantown Inn & Spa is located on the corner of 11th Avenue South East and Central Street.

This clubhouse is a place within the boundaries of the neighborhood for neighbors to walk to and meet friends and fellow neighbors. The Swantown Inn will offer their espresso service and baked goods to the outside visitors. If you need a space for a meeting, you can also reserve space in the ballroom and they can be prepared for your groups size.

Currently Swantown Inn serves espresso drinks, tea, coffee and a variety of baked goods. The Inn worked with Olympia Coffee Roasters for their espresso setup along with sourcing their beans. All of the baked goods are made in house, from scratch.

The clubhouse is in the ballroom on the left side of the Inn. You can purchase drinks and baked items outside at the window or inside the ballroom. giving you the perfect choice from a pandemic perspective. If you go inside a mask is a must, and pandemic protocols are followed.

Opening hours are currently Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 8am to Noon. Hours may be expanded if there is the demand. We would love to see you at the Inn! Our goal is to make our neighborhood more united and stronger, by fostering community.

The long term plan is to continue working with the city and have the area designated as a Neighborhood Center.
