The heart of summer also brings the heart of WestSide Baby‘s biggest diaper-donation drive of the year, Stuff the Bus! Here are two opportunities for you to contribute:

TALARICO’S TRIVIA TONIGHT: Host Phil Tavel says, “This week, Trivia Night at Talarico’s is supporting the WestSide Baby diaper drive. Help give to parents and their children who don’t have enough diapers. Instead of cash, bring diapers! Any size for children. If you can’t bring diapers, bring cash and we will buy the diapers – but, bring diapers! There will be a nice prize for the team that brings the most diapers. Also some raffle prizes as well.” 8:30 pm until about 10:15 pm. (
Starts at 8:30 and goes until about 10:15. (4718 California SW)

STUFF THE BUS BASH ON SUNDAY: Again this year, WS Baby is inviting everyone to bring diapers to its headquarters for a big party – that’s noon-3 pm this Sunday (July 22nd):

Fun during the afternoon will include…

Tours of our new, expanded warehouse
Diaper Dash – a short race for baby crawlers & non-walkers!Article Image
Trike Race – fun for kids ages 2-6 (we will provide trikes & helmets!)
Diaper Relay – because adults want to have fun too!
Kids games, arts & crafts!
Live music
Local food trucks
Free lemonade stand
Free ice cream!
And, most importantly, we will be stuffing our WestSide Baby Bus with your diaper donations!

Donating to our summer drive can be as easy as bringing a package of wipes, or an open package of diapers with you.

All welcome! (10002 14th SW)

BIZNOTE: Sushi Samurai shutters Alki location http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/biznote-sushi-samurai-shutters-alki-location/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/biznote-sushi-samurai-shutters-alki-location/#comments Wed, 18 Jul 2018 18:34:37 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922767 Don’t know how recently this happened, but Sushi Samurai has permanently closed on Alki – just noticed the note in the window while walking by for the first time in a while. (Likely relatively recently, as the restaurant’s most recent online review was posted a week and a half ago.) The original Queen Anne location remains in operation, and its website says, “Chef Ray has returned home to Queen Anne!” It’s only been 14 months since the Alki location opened at 2758 Alki SW, which Subway had vacated six months before that.

P.S. As discussed in comments, this now means five spaces are vacant in the heart of the Alki business district – the spaces formerly home to Tully’s, Alki Cleaners, Marée Bistro, Alki Urban Market, and now Sushi Samurai.

What you’ll be deciding includes narrowing a field of 29 U.S. Senate candidates (including incumbent Sen. Maria Cantwell) down to 2 and narrowing the list of 11 34th District State Senate candidates (incumbent Sen. Sharon Nelson is not running for re-election) down to 2. There’s one ballot measure – King County Proposition 1 seeks to renew the property-tax levy for the Automated Fingerprint Identification Service, used in criminal investigations. Get your ballot in a dropbox (West Seattle has one at the High Point Library, 3411 SW Raymond) or mailbox – this is the first election for which ballots have prepaid postage if you use the U.S. Postal Service, so you can mail yours without paying for stamps.

COUNTDOWN: West Seattle Grand Parade and PAWrade notes, with 4 days to go http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/countdown-west-seattle-grand-parade-and-pawrade-notes-with-4-days-to-go/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/countdown-west-seattle-grand-parade-and-pawrade-notes-with-4-days-to-go/#respond Wed, 18 Jul 2018 05:54:13 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922727 Two notes tonight as Saturday’s 2018 West Seattle Grand Parade gets closer:

COACH VELKO GETS HIS TROPHY: At tonight’s West Seattle Big Band Concert in the Park, this year’s Orville Rummel Trophy for Outstanding Service to the Community recipient Velko Vitalich accepted the trophy, with which he’ll ride in Saturday’s parade.

The trophy was presented to the retired West Seattle High School baseball and golf coach by the Rotary Club of West Seattle Service Foundation‘s parade chair Keith Hughes, assisted by parade coordinators Michelle Edwards and Jim Edwards, who also happen to be with the WS Big Band (musician and director, respectively).

PAWRADE UPDATE: Another reminder that before Saturday’s Grand Parade, you can be part of local history by participating, with your dog, in the first-ever West Seattle PAWrade:

The West Seattle Junction Association and Rotary are teaming up to present the PAWrade right before the Grand Parade arrives in The Junction. Prizes! Judges for the categories shown above are from local pet-related businesses/organizations, and they’ll be stationed along the route. It’s a short one, so don’t worry about Fido fatigue – it starts at California/Genesee at 11 am, between the motorcycle drill teams’ conclusion and the arrival of the rest of the parade, and proceeds to California/Edmunds – then you can go back and watch the Grand Parade! Sign up here if you’re ready to commit, or just show up at the start on Saturday!

TOMORROW: Next preview takes you to the parade lineup meeting!

Tickets are only $15 – buy yours now here. Or if you’d like to be part of Christmas in July as a volunteer, check at 206-719-4979 or pialley@jps.net.

7:21 PM: Not on the Hiawatha east lawn yet? You have time to get here and enjoy the West Seattle Big Band‘s only local outdoor concert this summer – the annual Concert in the Park, on until about 8:30 pm, with a special West Seattle Grand Parade-related presentation at intermission around 7:45. The band’s second number was “Warm Breeze,” perfect for this night, as WSBB director Jim Edwards noted.

Bring a chair/blanket and come join the 100+ people already enjoying the music – free!

7:35 PM: Ever seen the legendary CC at Chelan Café on Monday nights (6-9 pm)? She’s a special guest tonight:

And she’ll be back before the show’s over!

8:43 PM: The concert’s wrapping up with “New York, New York.” More to add when we’re back at HQ!

ADDED: More photos! Vocalists Jenaige Lane and Jeff Carter:

The band:

Yes, some people danced!

The program was mostly classics – plus an old rock song, Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4.” CC was back for songs including “All of Me“:

Jenaige sang “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing“:

Watch for the West Seattle Big Band’s performances at a variety of venues around the area – especially school benefits, a special focus of this group that has its roots at West Seattle High School.

West Seattle Neighborhood Greenway: Speed humps today, drop-in meeting tomorrow http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/west-seattle-neighborhood-greenway-speed-humps-today-drop-in-meeting-tomorrow/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/west-seattle-neighborhood-greenway-speed-humps-today-drop-in-meeting-tomorrow/#comments Wed, 18 Jul 2018 01:57:20 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922703

Yet more transportation-related news: West Seattle’s newest speed humps are in place on 30th SW as part of the WS Neighborhood Greenway project. We took the photo this afternoon, after a note from area resident Debbie earlier today:

A few months ago I called SDOT to see if speed humps were going to be built but they said that was not in the plan … but sure enough, they are right now putting in speed humps – one just north of Cambridge and the other closer to Barton. I think there are plans for more further north on 30th. Our block is very happy about this, because, as you know, cars tend to use it as a bypass from Roxbury to Barton.

And remember that you can get an update on/share comments about the greenway project at a drop-in event tomorrow (Wednesday, July 18th) – 5:30-7 pm at Neighborhood House High Point (6400 Sylvan Way SW)

See what’s now being considered for Delridge Way SW in RapidRide H Line conversion – with a new date http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/see-whats-now-being-considered-for-delridge-way-sw-in-rapidride-h-line-conversion-with-a-new-date/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/see-whats-now-being-considered-for-delridge-way-sw-in-rapidride-h-line-conversion-with-a-new-date/#comments Tue, 17 Jul 2018 23:56:12 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922689 (See full-size version as PDF by going here)

Six months after last we checked in on the design for Delridge Way SW as part of the RapidRide H Line conversion (WSB coverage here), the City Council’s Transportation Committee just got a briefing. Shown above is the 10 percent design concept for the Delridge section of the route.

One major change since what we saw/heard in January – the launch date for the Route 120 conversion is now described as 2021; it had been 2020.

Today’s briefing was related to a requirement that the council see the project at 10 percent design before spending goes beyond $1.4 million (the full project will cost at least $42 million, SDOT reps said at today’s meeting). This is still a very “early” stage of design, it was stressed, and District 1 Councilmember Lisa Herbold expressed interest in seeing south-end elements including improvements to the neighborhood greenway on 17th SW as well as connections to White Center. She was assured that those will be ready to review when the project gets to the 30 percent phase. That’s also when they’ll know more about how much repaving will be included as well as how and where sidewalk improvements will be addressed.

The final vote on allowing the project to proceed to the next phase of design is due at the full City Council meeting one week from next Monday – that’s July 30th. We’ll add video from today’s discussion – the committee meeting is still under way, on other topics, and about to enter its fourth hour – when it’s available.

FREE! The tool you should borrow just in case http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/free-the-tool-you-should-borrow-just-in-case/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/free-the-tool-you-should-borrow-just-in-case/#comments Tue, 17 Jul 2018 23:01:26 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922684

That’s free for you to borrow and use … just in case. Southwest Precinct Crime-Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Danner explains:

Due to a continued increase in burglaries over the last few months- the SW Precinct would like to remind our community members that you can rent a professional engraver from the SW Precinct for free!

These engravers allow you to mark your property (such as tools, bicycles and electronics) with an identifying number- such as your Driver’s License number. Then if/when your items are stolen- you are able to report to law enforcement that it was marked. These markings assist the Seattle Police Department in getting recovered property back to victims, as well as aid with investigations.

If you are interested in renting an engraver- please stop by the SW Precinct (2300 SW Webster St.) and speak with the desk officer. Remember the SW Precinct is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Please also keep in mind that I, as your SW Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator, offer free residential and commercial safety/security assessments! Contact me directly for more information and for scheduling.

jennifer.danner@seattle.gov is the best way to reach her. Meantime, whether you choose to borrow/use the engraver or not, she also recommends you keep a home inventory – here’s a template that can help.

Restricted Parking Zone in West Seattle Junction area? Here’s how to tell SDOT what you think http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/restricted-parking-zone-in-west-seattle-junction-area-heres-how-to-tell-sdot-what-you-think/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/restricted-parking-zone-in-west-seattle-junction-area-heres-how-to-tell-sdot-what-you-think/#comments Tue, 17 Jul 2018 21:19:20 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922676 Will the West Seattle Junction area get a Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ)? The most-recent briefing was at April’s Junction Neighborhood Organization meeting (WSB coverage here) and now it’s time for the next steps – SDOT is asking for your feedback. A mailer is arriving later this week in residential and business addresses in the area, but even if you don’t receive it, you can comment via an online survey, e-mail, or two upcoming drop-in events. From SDOT’s project team:

SDOT received a request to evaluate residential streets near the West Seattle Junction for eligibility for a new RPZ. The orange-lined blocks shown on the map below meet the requirements for a new RPZ, which would prevent all-day parking by commuters on these streets.

Specifically, an RPZ in the West Seattle Junction would:

*Limit vehicles without an RPZ permit to 2-hour parking, 7 AM – 6 PM, Monday – Saturday, on RPZ-signed blocks.

*Allow residents in the orange-shaded area to purchase RPZ permits to park longer than the posted time limit on RPZ-signed blocks. Permits are currently $65 per vehicle for a two-year cycle. One hangtag guest permit is available per household. A $10 low-income permit is available.

*Not allow employees to purchase permits. RPZ signs would not be installed adjacent to businesses, and existing time limit areas near businesses will remain.

Depending on feedback, a formal RPZ proposal will be released to the community in fall 2018 along with a public hearing. Unpaid time limit and individual space changes will also be finalized in fall 2018. See more information about this project on our website.

To submit comments or ask questions:

· Take this survey by August 19, 2018 or email us at WestSeattleParking@seattle.gov
· Visit SDOT staff in person at one of two informal drop-in sessions/tables:

o West Seattle Farmers Market on Sunday, July 29, 2018 from 10 AM to 2 PM
o Cupcake Royale at 4556 California Ave SW on Friday, August 10, 2018 from 10 AM – 11:30 AM

West Seattle currently has one RPZ, in the Fauntleroy ferry dock area.

WEST SEATTLE LIGHT RAIL: Sound Transit plans soil sampling on Pigeon Point http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/west-seattle-light-rail-sound-transit-plans-soil-sampling-on-pigeon-point/ http://westseattleblog.com/2018/07/west-seattle-light-rail-sound-transit-plans-soil-sampling-on-pigeon-point/#respond Tue, 17 Jul 2018 18:56:38 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=922651

11:56 AM: Thanks to Pete Spalding for sending a copy of that flyer circulated on Pigeon Point by Sound Transit. As it says, ST’s ongoing planning for West Seattle light rail will bring crews to PP for two to three days, starting as soon as tomorrow, for soil sampling. Options under consideration for West Seattle light-rail routing include either skirting around Pigeon Point or tunneling under it; ST reps talked with residents at the Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council‘s meeting last month (WSB coverage here). At that meeting, asked where a Pigeon Point tunnel would end at the surface to the west, ST reps said “around Genesee/Delridge,” which explains the sampling location [map].

WHAT’S NEXT IN THE PROCESS: The project’s Stakeholder Advisory Group met again last night; most of the agenda was non-West Seattle-related. (Meeting docs are not yet online but if you’re interested, we’ve obtained the draft slide decks for the SODO alternatives [11 MB PDF] and Chinatown/ID alternatives [10 MB PDF] that comprised most of the discussion last night.) The SAG’s next scheduled meeting is September 5th; the Elected Leadership Group is scheduled to meet this Thursday, 2-4 pm, at the Sound Transit board room (401 S. Jackson). The recommendation for routes/station locations to advance to the third and final review phase is expected in fall.

ADDED 4:14 PM: The full presentation from last night’s stakeholder meeting – including slides from the technical briefing looking at issues with water crossings (such as the bridge that is to be built across the Duwamish River) – is now online.
