PPQA and Pavers

Picture Perfect Queen Anne (PPQA) is a volunteer-powered neighborhood alliance. Through the combined efforts of Queen Anne neighbors (both residents and businesses) and with funding from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and the Office of Economic Development, PPQA is working to revitalize the streetscape of Queen Anne Avenue from Galer to McGraw Streets. Their goal is a pedestrian and family-friendly, safe and vibrant main street that everyone in our community will enjoy.

PPQA is in the midst of the Green Gateways Queen Anne campaign to raise the final funds needed to finish installing landscaping for the major pedestrian improvements at Queen Anne Ave. at Galer Street and McGraw Street – the "gateways" to the upper Queen Anne neighborhood. Design for the landscaping is being donated by Queen Anne-based Land2c Landscape Design. Maintenance is provided by Vertumni Fine Landscaping and Gardening, who is donating a significant portion of their costs.

PPQA is offering the opportunity to have your name, your family's name or the name of a loved-one etched on a paver and placed in the Galer Gateway. A contribution of $100 buys one line of text in a group of four. Buy your own individual paver for only $250. There are only thirty pavers being installed. Over half of which have already been claimed. For information about purchasing a paver -- or to make a contribution online -- please visit or call 206) 786-5971.
