The South Park community in Seattle is a small neighborhood with a big voice. Nearly 4,000 people live, work, study, play, farm, and raise families in this river-hugging community wedged at the heart of the Duwamish Valley industrial corridor. Students, parents, business owners, artists, machinists, environmentalists, and civic leaders all call South Park home. Tree lined streets are filled with well maintained housing and houses that are in need of work.

Historic Seattle, Friends of Georgetown History, and the Duwamish Valley Neighborhood Preservation Coalition offer a Saturday morning program exploring ways to revitalize older housing with an eye to preserving integrity while upgrading systems and making exterior and interior improvements for longevity and energy efficiency. Rick Sever, a Historic Seattle Council member and a contractor with a commitment to restoration and renovation of older buildings, will present examples of good and not so good approaches to remodels and respond to questions. Friends of Georgetown History and Duwamish Valley Neighborhood Preservation Coalition will give a brief overview of the history and development of South Park. Refreshments provided.
