MCC Meeting Announcement
September 15, 2016; 7-8:45pm
Please note: Because of a scheduling snafu and subsequent compromise, our meeting has been rescheduled to Thursday, Sept 15; same time and place.

I am very pleased that Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) hydrologist, Ms. Katherine Lynch, has agreed to be our featured presenter. She will be talking about the structure and function of a couple of major improvements that have very recently been made to Thornton Creek, a very important drainage in our area. She will discuss improved hydrologic and biologic aspects of the Confluence and Kingfisher (upstream of Fred Schwab) projects. This will be a slideshow and discussion version of her tours of these areas during the Influence of the Confluence event back in June, 2016 for which she received many kudos.

The MCC Sidewalks Committee Update on the status of Ne 110th proposed sidewalks between 39/40Aves Ne, 34/35th Aves Ne, and Ne 113th between 34/35th Aves Ne will be based on a report from Emily Reardon, Community Outreach for Brian Dougherty, which as of this posting I have yet to receive. Meadowbrook and Wedgwood CCs joint proposal for a greenways project on 32nd Ave Ne remains largely in limbo. After school starts, SDOT plans to conduct a census of the number of pedestrians crossing NE 95th at 32 Ave Ne before painting a crosswalk with signage at this location. Because of a sidewalk project from 35th Ave Ne to 32nd Ave Ne, curbs will be put in place.

Regarding our two Neighborhood Park and Street Fund (NPSF) proposals that were accepted by NDC, SDOT cost summaries indicated that the speed hump proposal at Ne 110th and 34 Ave would cost $100K (unbelievable) and the pedestrian activated crossing beacon at Ne 110th and 35 Ave would cost around $38K. This project was voted second to a project near Fred Meyer which was costed at $79K for a total of $117K. For our project, the extra $28K needed may be funded from other sources.

Wilma Boyd has applied for a Small Sparks Grant from the city for flag material to use at selected street.

Standing reports on the garden, crime and the website will also be presented and ideas on topics for future meetings in 2016 will, as always, be welcome. Agendas will be available at the meeting. Mark your calendars for Sept 15th — Looking forward to seeing you. DK
