Busy news day already, but before we get much further along, a quick break for five highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar for today/tonight:
CAMPAIGN KICKOFF: West Seattle’s most prominent politician, County Executive Dow Constantine, is launching his re-election campaign tonight with a kickoff event at The Hall at Fauntleroy, 5:30 pm.
WEST SEATTLE ART WALK: 6-9 pm, it’s the March edition of the West Seattle Art Walk, with venues and artists highlighted on the official website. Among your potential stops: Mesmerizing metalpoint by Sarah Loertscher at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor).
RAT CITY ART CITY: White Center’s art walk is moving to the second Thursday of the month starting tonight, also 6 pm-9 pm, so art fans can check out what’s happening to the south, too. Venues and artists are listed here.
DESIGN REVIEW POSTPONED – BUT YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT: As reported here on Wednesday afternoon, today’s Design Review Board meeting for the 3210 California SW project has been postponed because of a notification error. We are told that a development rep and city rep will be at the previously scheduled place/time (6:30 pm, Senior Center of West Seattle) to offer a “briefing” – no board present, no vote, no public comments – in case anyone shows up, since they couldn’t get out official notification.
GENESEE HILL SCHOOL AND GSNC: In the Schmitz Park Elementary cafeteria (5000 SW Spokane), community conversation about the latest design of the new elementary school at Genesee Hill is scheduled for 6:30 tonight, followed by a short meeting of the Genesee-Schmitz Neighborhood Council around 8 pm.
Much more on the calendar – see for yourself here (and if you haven’t looked lately – our big server upgrade this past Monday brings the calendar page up faster, too).
