As is usually the case for the second Tuesday of the month, it’s a busy night for community meetings. Highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
BRIDGE WORK RE-DO @ CITY COUNCIL TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE: As first reported here last Friday, the 600-plus “bearing pad” cushions installed to strengthen the Fauntleroy Expressway end of the West Seattle Bridge three years ago all need to be replaced. This morning at 9:30 am, the City Council Transportation Committee’s meeting includes the official briefing on what happened and what’s happening next. If you can’t get to City Hall, watch live via Seattle Channel – on cable or online. (seattlechannel.org)
*editor’s note – this happens WEDNESDAY*
WATCH THE WORLD CUP SEMI-FINALS: 1 pm in the air-conditioned meeting room at High Point Branch Library, you’re invited to watch the World Cup semifinals with fellow fans. Doors open at 12:30 pm. (35th/Raymond)
HIGH POINT NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION: 6 pm meeting at Neighborhood House’s High Point Center. (6400 Sylvan Way)
SOUND TRANSIT @ WEST SEATTLE TRANSPORTATION COALITION: Though right now Sound Transit service to West Seattle is just a bus route, ST is of intense interest because it’s updating its Long-Range Plan and might include a light-rail route for this area. As previewed here Sunday night, two ST reps are scheduled to talk with WSTC tonight. 6:30 pm, Neighborhood House’s High Point Center. (6400 Sylvan Way)
HELP A GUIDE DOG GROW UP: Find out about becoming a guide-puppy-raiser by attending a West Seattle See Dogs meeting – just happens to be one tonight at The Kenney (WSB sponsor), 6:30 pm. (7125 Fauntleroy Way SW)
PARK DISTRICT FORUM @ ADMIRAL NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION: As part of tonight’s ANA meeting at The Sanctuary at Admiral, the August 5th ballot measure to create a permanent Park District will be discussed by supporters – including City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen – and opponents. The agenda also includes a look ahead to the ANA-presented Summer Concerts at Hiawatha series, which starts on July 24th. No ANA meeting in August, so this is the last one until September 9th.

FAUNTLEROY COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION: 7 pm in the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse meeting room, with the agenda announced as including:
discussion of play streets, the possibility of conducting another community survey, traffic issues, boat storage at Cove Park, new neighbor bags, an update on the Fauntleroy Swing into Summer Dance, reports on the Southwest District Council and Ferry Advisory Council, and issues related to our partners, the Fauntleroy Community Service Association (owners of the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse).
No FCA meeting in August, so this is the last one until September 9th. (9131 California SW)
