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 Meeting January 9, 2018 7-8:30PM

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

Our featured presenter will be Mr. Kraig Cook from Dept of Neighborhoods. He along with his Program Advisor, Amy Nyugen, will provide an update on the Your Voice, Your Choice (YVYC) program. They will talk about idea collection (project proposal submittals) and, if possible, timelines for submittal deadlines and selection of projects. Please come prepared with ideas and questions.
After we hear from Kraig, John Lombard, director of the newly formed D5 Community Network will speak to us about what he envisions will be the mission of this Network as opposed to North District Council, LCNA and other advocacy groups. I plan to encourage MCC to become involved in this group.
The Sidewalk Committee will provide an 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. We will also try to set our initial YVYC meeting.
Pam will report on the outcome of the JAMS Playground Beautification planning potluck held on October 26th. Many creative ideas were bantered around.
This is an early reminder regarding MCC officer elections which will be held in March 2018. Anyone can run for any of the four officer positions that include president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Per the by-laws, candidate’s names have to be submitted by the meeting before the election (or January 9, 2018). As I have mentioned before, I intend to step down as president but stay on as vice-president.
Finally, the Community Garden and Orchards will soon be shutting down for the season.
Look forward to seeing you at the meeting. …… Dan Keefe, President
