Birchwood neighborhood looks ahead as it loses Albertsons

Prior to Albertsons announcing it was closing the Birchwood store, the neighborhood began working with Western Washington University urban planning students to come up with ideas to make the area vibrant again. The group of students presented a report of its findings at a neighborhood meeting March 15. The report, based on feedback from community members, emphasized giving the area a major facelift, adding parks and other public spaces as well as addressing safety concerns.
