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

At our March meeting we elected the existing Board to another one year term with one condition, that this would be the last term for Dan Keefe and Charlene Murray. Thank you and we hope to continue to serve the best interests of Meadowbrook. With that in mind, Pam Bowe will be running our May meeting while Dan visits his grandchildren in Helena, MT. He will be around to run the July meeting.

Our May 9th meeting will feature a representative from CM Juarez’s office and may include CM Juarez herself. In addition, we will have a representative from SDOT Safe Routes to School division (Stephanie) who will give us an update on our long awaited start to the construction (June 2017) of the sidewalk segment on Ne 110th between 39/40th Aves Ne. She will be this project’s key point of contact, so please be prepared to also ask any pertinent questions you might have. We will also hand out the latest milestone updates to Brian Dougherty’s spreadsheet that contains the list of the various sidewalk and crosswalks, etc projects.
Of the three proposals we submitted as part on DoN’s new Your Voice…Your Choice program (replaces NPSF), one was selected for final voting which is the 4-way stop at Ne 98th St and Ravenna which is being championed by Wilma Boyd.

There will be an update on the Emergency Hub and our inquiry into becoming a fiscal sponsor for Matching Funds projects. The committee formed to apply for funds to improve the grounds at Jane Addams MS is having trouble getting volunteers. Finally, the Community Garden and Orchards has held some 8 to 9 work parties since coming back to life in March. Work Parties are currently scheduled for 3-5pm every Sunday with a pot luck following.

Please mark your calendars and support Pam by coming to the meeting.
Dan Keefe, President

Meeting to Discuss Emergency Planning

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.”
We will be discussing how:
• 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.

Greetings Meadowbrook Area Community Members,

Meadowbrook Community Council

For our September MCC meeting, we are going to get political. We have invited our two City Council candidate primary winners for District 5, Debora Juarez and Sandy Brown, to speak to us at our meeting and they accepted!

Although elections are a bit far off yet, Nov.3rd, we are fortunate to have secured their willingness to visit with us as their campaign schedule is rapidly getting booked up. So give some thoughts to a few questions as after we hear their “stump speeches” we will take a few questions. Big topic areas are public safety, transportation and affordable housing.

In addition, updates and reports on the following will also be provided:
1- Report on the Greenways status;
2- Status of crosswalk installations by SDOT at the three crossings around Jane Addams and Nathan Hale schools;
3- Community Garden and Orchards: current status (harvest pounds to food bank and others) ;
4- Public Safety: (Aundie Collison);
5- Status of planned D5 and at-large candidate Forum, and;
6- November meeting topic.
As usual, an agenda will be provided at the meeting.
THIS IS A BIG ONE! Looking forward to your attendance…Dan Keefe, President
