Annual Night Out in Seattle-August 7th, 2018

Seattle Police Invites You to Register for the Annual Night Out!

Tuesday, August 7, 2018, the City of Seattle will be celebrating the annual Night Out Against Crime. Our registration link for Night Out 2018 is now active. Please go to: Night Out Registration Link

Night Out is a national crime prevention event designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. Neighbor participation in Night Out continues to grow every year. In 2016, over 1,300 Night Out events were registered city-wide. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s a great chance to reconnect with neighbors and share information with each other while learning more about crime prevention. Getting together with your neighbors, recommitting to watch out for each other, and reaffirming you will report suspicious activity to police are ways to show you care about your community.

Meadowbrook Community Council Meeting Announcement
Time: May 8, 2018 7:00PM-8:30PM
Location: Meadowbrook Community Center | 10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125

Welcome to Springtime in Seattle! As your new Meadowbrook Community Council President I want to introduce myself. Born and raised in the Seattle area I have resided in Meadowbrook since the early 80’s. My family still lives in the first home we purchased, and my children attended our local schools. I have a great love of this area . As a full time Realtor I have watched our neighborhood change, house by house. Our neighborhood is doing pretty good here in NE Seattle! As the incoming MCC President I intend to be accessible and responsive to the needs of our community. Fortunately I have had the benefit of an outstanding mentor in Dan Keefe. Dan has served MCC President for the past seven years and much of what has been accomplished has had his hand in it. He will be a tough act to follow! Not to worry though—Dan is now our MCC Vice President! Continue reading

MCC Meeting Announcement For:
January 9, 2018; 7-8:30pm

I was late in reserving Rm1 so meeting will be in Rm11 (room to the right as you walk in).
We will not be having a featured speaker for this meeting but instead we will focus on several other issues.

I will provide an update on the Your Voice, Your Choice (YVYC) program. It has started with a short time line. Ideas will be due on Feb 2nd. I’ll have forms and ideas that folks can consider as potential project ideas to submit. You can also go on line to study up on the program. I just Googled “Your Voice, Your Choice,” or you can go to Your Voice Your Choice. I will also try to set a date for a YVYC meeting to prioritize and electronically submit our project ideas.

We will also entertain nominations for the board other than those currently proposed i.e., Pam Bowe- President, Dan Keefe – VP, Mike Reinhardt – Secretary, and Wilma Boyd – Treasurer.

We will need to allocate $25 for dues for our continued membership in Lake City Neighborhood Alliance (LCNA) if we indeed want to continue to be a member. We could also use someone to be our representative at their meetings.

The Sidewalk Committee will provide its usual update on the various projects SDOT has been working on in our area and take any comments you may have on what has been implemented so far. I plan to push hard for the completion of the sidewalk on NE 110th btwn 35th & 36th Avenues by Sept, 2018.

Status of JAMS Playground Beautification planning project will be discussed.

Emergency HUB status will be updated.

Look forward to seeing you at the meeting. …… Dan Keefe, President
