A team of Stantec’s Seattle and Bellevue-area architects, environmental experts, and design industry professionals recently removed moved nearly 1,000 square feet of Himalayan Blackberry bushes, English Ivy and other vegetation from critical areas of the 10-acre Cheasty Greenspace at Mt. View (Beacon Hill).  The effort supports long-term goals to provide nearby neighborhoods with access to nature while creating a safe, scenic pedestrian transit corridor adjacent to Seattle’s light rail system. The mission is being led by the Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View, a local non-profit which the Stantec team members are partnering with for the work session. The project is now approximately 80 percent complete.

The effort also began as a part of “Stantec in the Community Day,” an inaugural observance in which the firm’s employees from across North America participated in projects to service their local communities.
