Word of the day: Meetings – some that matter to West Seattle are not *IN* West Seattle. News will emerge from most if not all of them. All are open to the public, in case you are interested in hearing/seeing for yourself, firsthand. And we have a few other highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, starting with a side-by-side look at the mayoral-election rivals:
MAYORAL FORUM IN WEST SEATTLE: The McGinn-vs.-Murray battle comes to West Seattle this afternoon for the first (and only, so far as we have heard) time in the general-election campaign, with vote-counting just 7 weeks away, vote-casting starting sooner. Public’s welcome – 1 pm at West Seattle Senior Center. (California/Oregon)
VIADUCT STAKEHOLDER ADVISORY GROUP: The community stakeholders groups that now have a joint meeting quarterly (or so) will get together today 4-6 pm at Safeco Field‘s Ellis Pavilion to hear the latest on topics including the about-to-resume tunnel-boring process.
SCHOOL DISTRICT BOUNDARIES ETC.: Another not-in-West-Seattle-but-of-major-interest meeting is happening in downtown – at 4:30 pm, the Seattle School Board meets for a work session on the long-awaited “growth boundaries” draft, which will redraw some boundaries for next school year and – of particular interest here – either change or reaffirm the district’s previously voiced intent of making Fairmount Park Elementary a neighborhood school when it reopens, expanded, in fall 2014. The K-5 STEM community is waiting to hear results of its campaign to either move to FP (instead of the district-proposed Schmitz Park, when it is vacated in 2016) or stay at Boren with room to become a K-8. The district is offering an embargoed media briefing late this morning but saying it will not publicly release the proposal until the start of the board meeting. It’s open to the public, but does *not* include a public-comment period. 4:30 pm, district HQ. (3rd/Lander)
TRANSIT/TRANSPORTATION MEETING: Will the State Legislature take action on transportation money before its next session – possibly helping Metro Transit avoid cuts? The Senate Transportation Committee is touring the state to see what people have to say, and the first metro-area meeting is tonight in Bellevue, 6-9 pm. (Stevenson Elementary, 14220 NE 8th)
JUNCTION NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION: 6:30 pm at the Senior Center of West Seattle, the third meeting of the relaunched community council for The Junction and The Triangle. Development-related topics – and how to make sense of processes like alley vacation – are on the agenda, which is detailed in our calendar listing. All welcome. (California/Oregon)
CRIME PREVENTION COUNCIL: 7 pm at the Southwest Precinct, the WSCPC is back from summer break. You’ll hear about crime trends, as well as hearing from tonight’s guests, the principals of adjoining Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School, and there is an opportunity to bring up your neighborhood concerns, too. (Delridge/Webster)
LIVE AT EASY STREET RECORDS: Campfire OK performs at 7 pm, live, in-store, free, all ages. (California/Alaska)
ALAUDA BELLYDANCE SHOWCASE: Tonight marks its fourth anniversary at Skylark Café and Club, 7:30 pm, free/all ages. (3803 Delridge Way SW)
