Meadowbrook Pond 11/6 Update

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is pleased to announce that constriction is finished at Meadowbrook Pond for this year. Thank you for your patience throughout construction.

While SPU was not able to dredge as much of the pond as originally planned due to a late start to construction, a 17-day union strike that halted most work, and an early Fall rain event, SPU was able to:

  • Remove over 1,000 cubic yards from the Forebay and Cell 2.
  • Remove invasive plants from the pond and the surrounding area to improve habitat at Meadowbrook Pond.
  • Relocate approximately 8,000 fish during the project.

SPU is also currently looking into options for a barrier along the east side of 36th Avenue N.E. to replace the berm that was removed.

We know that this is an important community space, and we appreciate your understanding during this project.

SPU is responsible for ongoing maintenance of Meadowbrook Pond to maintain the flood control and stormwater detention functionality of this site. SPU is continuing to monitor the site and evaluate future maintenance needs, which may include returning in 2019 to perform additional dredging. SPU staff will provide community notification for future largescale maintenance projects that impact site access.

Jane Addams MS FundRaiser 11/13/2018

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
