First full week of school, and though summery weather is forecast for the next few days, this morning’s fog brings a fall feeling. So does some of the very serious business in today’s roundup:
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR SOME KINDERGARTENERS: As noted here last month, four local schools start kindergarten on a “slow-start” schedule to facilitate meetings with families. So this is the first day for kindergarteners at Concord, Highland Park, Roxhill, Sanislo, and West Seattle Elementary Schools.
CITY COUNCIL VOTES ON DEVELOPMENT RULES: At their 2 pm meeting today, Seattle City Councilmembers will consider two development-related measures of note – extending a moratorium on some development on “undersized single-family-zoned lots” (read the legislation here), and putting “emergency” restrictions into place to prohibit “low-scale development” in pedestrian-oriented mixed-use zoning (read the legislation here). The meeting’s at City Hall downtown.
WEST SEATTLE HI-YU NEEDS YOU: From Regina:

We are looking for 2013-2014 board members, volunteers, and participants for the junior court (8-12 years old) and senior court (18-23 years old).

NORTH DELRIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL: Monthly meeting is at 6:30 pm tonight, Delridge Library. Agenda highlights from co-chair Parie Hines:
We’ll be hearing from the Green Seattle Partnership about the upcoming Green Seattle Day. We will also have representatives from Seattle Public Utilities to hear your concerns about stormwater and drainage issues that need attention. And we will start the discussion about a peninsula-wide West Seattle Transit Coalition to look at what the future without the Viaduct will look like.
The library is just south of Delridge/Brandon.
