Meadowbrook Community Council

Supporting community spirit and creating a connected environment in NE Seattle's Meadowbrook community and surrounding neighborhoods.

Nathan Hale Theater Department presents “The Drowsy Chaperone”

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

D5 CM Debora Juarez secures $500,000 for the NE 110th Sidewalk Project in FY17 City Budget

On September 23, 2016, I met with Pam Bowe of the Meadowbrook Community Council. Pam requested a District Office meeting regarding a substantial number of fatalities and traffic related accidents in the Meadowbrook community. I learned that community advocates successfully requested “Bridge the Gap” grant funding to complete the dangerous sidewalk segment on NE 110th St between 35th Ave NE and 36th Ave NE. Construction was approved in 2009 and again in 2013, however development never occurred.

I worked with the Meadowbrook Community Council to successfully secure $500,000 for the construction of this community asset in the 2017-2018 budget.

Meadowbrook Emergency Communication Hub Meeting Details

On January 6th, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30, the Meadowbrook Community Council held a meeting for the greater Meadowbrook / Matthews Beach area communities at the Meadowbrook Community Center on NE 35th Avenue.

Our guest speaker was Sandy Motzer, who was instrumental in organizing and creating the emergency communications hub in Lake City.

The emergency communication hub is part of a network around Seattle that would be staffed by trained volunteers and ham radio operators who could send emergency messages to the city in case of a large-scale disaster.

Susanna Cunningham, Vice chair of Lake City Emergency Communications HUB discussed FEMA, and the Amateur Radio & Auxiliary Communications Service of Seattle (ACS).
Topics discussed, as illustrated in the attached presentation (above), were:

  • Each household has to be self-sustaining
  • To support our neighborhood and community
  • The Meadowbrook hub would operate
  • We need to communicate with city leaders and emergency responders.
  • The Meadowbrook area is unique.

Remembrance & Rally: Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

image003A rash of serious injuries and fatalities on the streets of north Seattle has galvanized people to demand swift action. From 2015 to the present, there have been 24 serious injury collisions in north Seattle, six of them fatal.

In a normal year, two people lose their lives riding bikes in all of Seattle. In northeast Seattle, two people have been killed riding their bikes just in the past month.

Join Lake City Greenways, NE Seattle Greenways, Green Lake Greenways, Licton-Haller Greenways, Greenwood-Phinney Greenways, Maple Leaf Greenways and many other community groups and neighbors to highlighthese unsettlingly incidents.

They will gather on Sunday, October 9 at noon in front of the Northgate Community Center to remember the people whose lives have been altered by or lost to traffic violence. The gathering will raise awareness and ask city leaders to put money in the budget to construct street safety improvements.

“Northeast Seattle is experiencing a shocking level of traffic violence,” said Cathy Tuttle, director of the traffic safety organization Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. “We’ve mapped where collisions have happened in the northeast and believe many streets could be fixed with modest but effective safety engineering. The City has identified 100 places that could use spot improvements, and people throughout Seattle have documented another 300 street safety concerns. Let’s get the funding in place so we can fix these places. Waiting longer to improve our streets has deadly consequences.”

Seattle has committed to Vision Zero (zero serious injuries or fatalities by 2030), but the $2.4 million budgeted for a life-saving agenda is not sufficient. Neighbors are gathering to say #WeCantWait for more serious injuries and fatalities to spur City action.

Seattle Neighborhoods: Engaging Your Community

461420603
As you know, the City of Seattle is shifting our approach to outreach and engagement and we are looking for ideas on how we can keep residents better informed about projects, events, opportunities, and issues.

We have created a simple two-minute survey to get feedback on how people want to engage with city government and what we can do to make it easier for them to weigh in and participate.

Our goal is to hear from as many people as possible! But, in order to achieve that, we need your help!

Would you be willing to circulate this survey within your community?

The survey can be found at http://bit.ly/EngageSeattle-survey.

We appreciate any help you can provide in getting the word out to your contacts.

Thank you for joining us in bringing more voices to the table and making our outreach and engagement work for everyone!
