It’s September, and the community groups that took all or part of the summer off would usually be getting back to their normal schedules. But two of them have a different plan for this month. Tonight, the first Tuesday, would usually be the regular meeting night for Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council, but here’s what’s on the schedule instead, as announced by Joe Szilagyi:

One more month of a slightly different WWRHAH schedule!

No meeting tonight as we’ve mentioned — the next one will be a joint meeting with the Highland Park Action Committee at their meeting space on Wednesday, September 24 at 630 pm. This meeting will be dedicated to and focusing on Seattle Police across our two areas and South Delridge. Bring your questions — we’ll have all the key staff from the Southwest Precinct there!

Meeting: HPAC & WWRHAH joint SPD meeting
Date: Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Time: 630 pm-830 pm
Location: Highland Park Improvement Club, 1116 SW Holden

Here’s the Facebook event if you want to join that or share it.

If you live in one of those areas and have concerns/questions for SPD, that meeting will be particularly crucial, as the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council has canceled its September meeting because of health challenges among its leadership.

  1. It would be great if these neighborhoods could have the “Find It,Fix It” event the City has had in other neighborhoods. Each neighborhood a couple of weeks apart. Things are so bad that I can not work on my house with out witnessing narcotics activity or car prowls. I have called 911 countless times but nothing happens. If they get there in time to see the person, they won’t make an arrest unless they witness criminal activity.

    I get how SPD officers are caught between a rock and a hard place. Does anyone have any constructive ideas because depolicing due to the DOJ study doesn’t serve communities of color?

  2. Melissa – I have asked multiple times if these walks will be held here, and the answer has been yes, but no dates yet. Meantime, when a meeting like this is organized, or the Crime Prevention Council, or the Block Watch Captains’ Network, sending a neighborhood rep if you can’t go yourself is an excellent opportunity to bring up issues in person (either in front of the group or by talking to the police reps on the sidelines before/after) …

  3. Is anyone going to admit that the transit hub Metro dumped on us is a gigantic disaster thats wreaked havoc on this area?
