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:
1 – update on our newly begun Greenways group (one proposal submitted; several are under consideration);
2 –Thornton Creek ecoli study (new knowledge concerning likely sources), summary notes from Thornton Creek Alliance’s Feb 26th presentation will be discussed
3 – SDOT’s Lake City Way Traffic plan, we will present notes on current status, and, hopefully, when and where the initial construction projects are likely to occur;
4- Light Rail – two issues that have been followed closely by members of the North District Council are: the establishment of a pedestrian/
station at 130th and I-5, and funding for a pedestrian/bike I-5 overpass from the Northgate station to North Seattle college. Members of the MCC Board will make the presentations because representatives from SDOT, SPU and Light Rail were not available.
5-Ms Quinn Schweitzer of Recology will give us a brief update on our trash removal, recycling and yard waste services.
Up for discussion will be the planning of, with North District Council likely in the lead, a City Council Candidate forum for District 5. We are proposing to hold it at Nathan Hale HS or similar venue in the style of the town hall meeting held by our state legislators last November.
Use of Next Door Seattle as a communication platform will be discussed.
Finally, we will have our standing reports on crime, the community
garden and orchard, and provide time for any pressing issues we may be overlooking.
Thanks in advance for your attendance.
Dan Keefe, President
