JULIE FREDERICK started this petition to Seattle City Council and Seattle Mayor

Ballard Commons Park is currently a homeless encampment tied up in drug use. The homeless are fed by the nearby church and in turn sell off their food allocations in order to sell and use drugs right here at the park. This codependency has allowed the numbers to increase while the health violations of trash, filth and desecration are out of control. The tent encampments surround this park crammed together in close proximity avoiding social distancing and encouraging discord. Every violation goes unnoticed by the Seattle City Council and Mayor who choose to not respond. Every city government office has been told by the Mayor to not respond. More garbage pickup does not dent the trash overflow. Vaccine clinics not at the park do not prevent Hepatitis A. This petition has been started to restore this park to its rightful position in this high density neighborhood designed to be enjoyed by all. This is a health crisis perpetuated in a cycle of drug abuse of unparalleled proportions that is increasing in size and detrimental yet undeterred but enhanced by violations in a high density neighborhood. Ballard citizens are without a voice constantly unheard and unrecognized by our city elected officials. Restore Ballard Commons Park!
