PNA Executive Director
The PNA has a long history of innovation and creativity, and new projects, programs, events and activities often come into being because of an idea from a community member. We provide a platform for people and ideas. Working together with members, businesses, volunteers and neighbors, we co-create the future. This manifests itself in many ways, including: supporting local businesses through the PNA Business Membership; creating new events like the PNA Garden Party and Costume Exchange; focusing on sustainability through the Fixer’s Collective; evolving educational opportunities based on what neighbors are interested in; partnering with Solarize Seattle to bring affordable solar to the neighborhood; and providing electric car chargers in the Phinney Center parking lot.
In the mayor’s recent State of the City address, he pointed out the importance of social infrastructure, saying that arts, education and human services are just as important than a good physical infrastructure to knitting a neighborhood together. This is very much in line with what we at the PNA strive for.
