UW Livable City Year program completes first partnership

Livable City Year LogoThe University of Washington’s Livable City Year program connects one Washington community with UW faculty and students each year to work on community-identified projects.

Livable City Year partnered with the City of Auburn during the 2016-2017 school year, with more than 160 students working on 17 different projects. These projects included a study on preventing food waste in Auburn schools; landscape design of an alleyway into a vibrant public space; a study of Auburn residents’ preparedness for emergencies and disasters; and strategies to establish more healthy food alternatives across the city.
