TO THE HONORABLE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SEATTLE:

The undersigned residents of the Green Lake District in the 3rd Precinct of the 9th Ward, respectfully petition your Honorable Body to grant incandescent street light at each of the following points in said district, to wit: One light at the Green Lake car line at the South end of Woodlawn Ave. as what is known as Williams Station; One light at the junction of Woodlawn Ave. and Humphries St. at what is known as the Woodland Park platform; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Market St. at what is known as the McDonald Station; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Kenwood Avenue at what is known as the Wells Station; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Kirkwood Avenue near the Kilbourne Station; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Tahoe Avenue at what is known as the Tahoe Station; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Ravenna Avenue at what is known as the Ravenna Station; One light at the junction of Green Lake Boulevard and Woodlawn Avenue at what is known as the Woodlawn Station; One light at the junction of Woodlawn and First Avenues at the Green Lake post office; One light at the junction of Ravenna, Meadow and First Avenue. We respectfully represent that a light is very badly needed at every one of the points above mentioned, which need would have been called to the attention of your Honorable Body long ago except for the distance said points from any existing light circuits; That under special concession and offer from the lightning compan-ies it now seems entirely feasible to have such lights provided for a very low cost; That each one of said lights, if established, will serve a large number of permanent residents in going to and from the street cars and while waiting for cares which are run at the intervales of an hour between cars. That 8 of said points are important street car stations and the other two area points near the car line at street intersection where there is a great deal of travel. Wherefore in view of the entire absence of any street lights in said district heretofore and of the light cost of providing them now under the offer made by the lighting companies, we most earnestly pray that said lights be granted with out any reduction to a minimum an have designated only points where the greatest need exists, and your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray
