Church petitions city to keep portable toilet in Commons

Church petitions city to keep portable toilet in Commons

The Ballard News Tribune notes that St Lukes Episcopal Church in Ballard (area of Seattle) petition to keep portable toilet in Ballard Commons:

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, supported by the Ballard Chamber of Commerce, has started a petition to keep the Ballard Commons Honey Bucket past its takedown date, Oct. 11.

The petition reads:

“This honey bucket serves a critical public health function in downtown Ballard for all of us who visit and enjoy this heavily used urban park. The long term goal for downtown Ballard is to establish a permanent restroom for the general public in the Ballard Commons Park as is usual in other city parks. The current well serviced honey bucket is an important interim public facility for the community until the long term goal of building a permanent facility can be accomplished. … Many folks from across our community are depending on your good will and civic spirit so that they will have a healthy place to “go” in downtown Ballard that preserves both their dignity and the public health of the community.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
