Message from MCC President, Dan Keefe
June 25, 2014
Greetings Meadowbrook neighbors!
The following is an announcement regarding a pro and con Forum concerning the establishment of a Metropolitan Parks District (MPD) which is coming up for a vote as Proposition 1 in August of this year. It will be held on July 7 the night before our regular MCC bi-monthly meeting on July 8.
MCC Meeting-July 8, 2014
In deference to this important forum, I have scheduled a very light MCC meeting which I intend to last for no more than an hour, so that you can attend both without too much time out of your schedules or choose the Forum only. At the MCC meeting, I will provide brief updates on the Confluence and sidewalk projects, This will be followed by a tour of the community kitchen (by Lee LaCroix) and finally, for those who would like nice evening walk or you can drive around, we will visit the community garden where Sue McGann will give a tour. We will adjourn at the garden. Hope you can attend!
Forum – July 7, 2014
The Lake City Neighborhood Alliance (LCNA) and the North District Council (NDC) are jointly sponsoring a forum on Seattle Proposition 1, establishing a Metropolitan Parks District (MPD), to fund Seattle Parks. LCNA and NDC are co-sponsoring this Forum to provide sufficient information about MPDs so that voters are fully informed when they cast their ballots in August. An MPD is governed under WA State law (RCW 35.61) rather than by City ordinance. Here is the link to the RCW if you’d like more information: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=35.61.
The Forum will be held Monday July 7th, 7-8:30 pm at the Lamb of God Lutheran Church, 12509 27th Ave NE (NW corner of NE 125th Street and 27th Ave NE), in the downstairs meeting room. Free parking is available in the Church lot or on the street. On behalf of LCNA and NDC, hope to see you there.
The Meadowbrook Community Council meeting will be held Tuesday July 8th 7-830PM at Meadowbrook Community Center. Due to the construction closures please enter from the 105th Street detour sign.
