Support your neighborhood! Community council meetings ahead

August 11, 2013 at 12:15 pm | In Neighborhoods, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Some community councils take August off – but not all, so here are three quick notes today on neighborhood groups that would love to see you this month if you live and/or work in their areas (or, really, even if you don’t):

NORTH DELRIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL: Though they are crazy-busy working on next Saturday’s Delridge Day festival (to which we’ll be counting down over the days ahead), NDNC also is having its regular second-Monday meeting tomorrow night (August 12), 6:30 pm, outdoors at Dragonfly (Garden) Pavilion. Here’s the agenda preview:

We’ll be planning for (Delridge Day) and hearing an update from Fair Elections Seattle. We have two support letters to discuss and approve, including (1) a letter of support for Delridge Grocery (for use in their grant applications) and (2) a letter supporting keeping STEM at Boren (with our belief that a stable, permanent school at that location is a benefit to the neighborhood). We will also discuss a voluntary alcohol deferment program that has been implemented in other areas of Seattle and whether that makes sense for North Delridge.

The full NDNC agenda is here; Dragonfly Pavilion is on 28th SW just south of SW Yancy.

WESTWOOD-ROXHILL-ARBOR HEIGHTS COMMUNITY COUNCIL: Tuesday night (August 13th), West Seattle’s newest neighborhood council meets, 6:15 pm at Southwest Branch Library (35th/Henderson). Watch for the agenda.

JUNCTION NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION: JuNO, the community council for the West Seattle Junction/Triangle area and vicinity, relaunched last month (here’s our coverage) and with so much going on – not the least of which is major development – would like to see you get involved. The next meeting is at 6:30 pm Tuesday, August 20th, at the Senior Center of West Seattle (California/Oregon). If there’s a topic you’d like to see addressed, be there.


  1. Two observations here. First, thanks to WSB for publicizing these neighborhood meetings. If people truly care about their communities, attending these are a valuable way to offer up suggestions, improvements, etc.

    Second, I love Long Bach Nguyen’s work. For a fee will he snap some pictures of my house from the air?

  2. WSH – there should be a contact address on his site, which is linked to his name in the photo credit here, and I’m sure you could ask. – TR
