Special LCNA Forum on Move Seattle Levy on October 8th

Hello Friends,

Transportation is a priority issue in Seattle and in Lake City. LCNA (Lake City Neighborhood Alliance) is hosting a free and open community forum on the upcoming Move Seattle Levy in lieu of our regular October 8th meeting. This forum is at the same time and place as our regular meeting–6:30-8:30 pm, at Lamb of God Lutheran Church, corner of NE 125th Street and 27th Ave NE. We will be in the downstairs, ADA-accessible meeting room. Our hope is that lots and lots of members of our community will attend.

Forum Coordinator Phil Shack has arranged for representatives from the Let’s Move Seattle and the Keep Seattle Affordable groups to tell us why they believe we should or should not vote for this levy. We will have some prepared questions to ask them, and we will also accept questions from the floor. A flyer is attached to help spread the word. Move Seattle Levy Forum

This forum comes one night after the October 7th North District Council meeting (7-8:30 pm, Seattle Mennonite Church, 3120 NE 125th Street–note location change from library conference room) will host SDOT Director Scott Kubly, who will be speaking about the levy. At the September LCNA Board meeting, the Directors felt that this short amount of time was insufficient for a thorough community discussion of a complex levy. So, with NDC’s approval, this back-to-back session was arranged. Thank you Phil for taking it on!

Everyone, please spread the word. All are welcome to attend. We hope for a big turnout and lots of thoughtful questions so that as individuals, we will have the information we need to make our personal decisions about how to vote on the Move Seattle Levy. Please come!

Greetings Meadowbrook Community Council members!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, 7-9pm, in the usual location. We have a number of issues and happenings to deal with. Firstly, as discussed at our January meeting, we will have elections to either re-elect the current board or elect any member who wishes to run for one of the board positions. We will have our once-per-year treasurer’s report and consider the possibility of raising our annual dues from the current $10/yr to $15 or 20/yr.

On the agenda will be reports on several issues and projects affecting our Meadowbrook neighborhood. These will be: Continue reading

2014 Year End Summary

Meadowbrook Community Council

Greetings fellow Meadowbrook neighbors: First I must apologize for the confusion around the scheduling of our November meeting. I failed to double check to see if the Center would be open and they filed to tell me that the 11th wouldn’t work because the Center would be closed for Veteran’s Day. Not the end of the world, so onwards!

Because the rest of the days in November were rapidly filling up I decided to “start over” on January 13th with our regular meeting schedule and, instead of a November meeting, send out a brief summary on the status of the various projects that have been ongoing over the past year. I have obtained updates from city employees, our local police status person, Aundie Collison, and production and status of the community garden & orchard. Below, in no particular order, are brief reports on the various projects and issues affecting Meadowbrook. Continue reading

Construction Update – September 19

Thornton Creek Confluence Project
Construction Update – September 19

We released the south branch of Thornton Creek this week! It now flows under 35th Ave. NE to meet the north branch, which has been flowing freely for several weeks. We also installed the concrete girders across the new bridge to form the top of the new culvert.

Upcoming work:

• Continued work on the bridge
• Connect the high flow ponds to Meadowbrook Pond with new culverts

Important Reminders
• Now that school has begun we’d like to remind everyone that for your safety the construction zone is not open to the public. Children and adults should not enter the construction zone during or after hours. Do your part to remain safe and alert near the construction site.
• Local businesses and public facilities are open during construction. These include the Meadowbrook Community Center and Pool, as well as Café Lati and Santorini Pizza and Pasta (both on the corner of 35th Ave NE and NE 110th Street).
