Without our immediate action, the honey bucket in Ballard Commons Park will be removed on October 11, 2013 by a vendor of the Parks Department and the Seattle Human Services Department.
This honey bucket serves a critical public health function in downtown Ballard for all of us who visit and enjoy this heavily used urban park.
The Long Term Goal for downtown Ballard is to establish a permanent restroom for the general public in the Ballard Commons Park as is usual in other city parks. The current well serviced honey bucket is an important interim public facility for the community until the long term goal of building a permanent facility can be accomplished.
Please add your voice to the campaign so that the Honey Bucket can stay until the Permanent Restroom is built.
Many folks from across our community are depending on your good will and civic spirit so that they will have a healthy place to “go” in downtown Ballard that preserves both their dignity and the public health of the community.
