Meadowbrook Community Council

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

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to provide a brief update on how things are progressing.

I attend and provided testimony at the SPS Special Board meeting for public comment on BEX V Levy last Thursday, 10/18. It was a great session to attend as only 8 members of the public attended to give comment.
I had a separate discussion with Director Burke and Director Mack following the session. They are supportive of our Site Improvements and I have no reason to believe our needs will fall off the list of proposed projects. The board will adopt the final list in the coming weeks. Our big push following placement on the levy will be encouraging folks to vote yes in February.

I have been laying low in fundraising (we are still around the $23,000 mark) for the Stair project this month as the PTSA is conducting their Annual Give campaign. I will begin pushing hard in early November. After all tiles make great gifts! Visit jamsdreambig.org to purchase yours!

Lastly please help spread the word of our upcoming school takeover event at the RAM restaurant at University Village on 11/13 from 5-9PM. We will receive 10% of all sales during that time. I’ve attached a poster.

thank you,
Colleen
