2 notes from West Seattle High School: Play tonight, 5/31 run

OPENING NIGHT: Thanks to those who’ve e-mailed us to say tonight’s opening night for the three-night run of West Seattle High School‘s student-directed plays “Reverse Transcription” and “No Exit,” 7:30 pm tonight, Friday, and Saturday in the WSHS Theater (tickets $5 at the door).

5/31 RUN – AND MORE? Checking the WSHS website, we noticed something that’s interesting for more than 1 reason:

Save the Date! WSHS PTSA 5K Fun Run/Walk on May 31, 2009

This fun community event will be held in partnership with the City of Seattle and their “Summer Streets” (car-free) day on Alki. Mark your calendars, tell your family and friends, and get ready for a healthy start to summer at Seattle’s most beautiful park, West Seattle’s own Alki Beach. Watch Westside Notes and this website [WSHS site] for more information about how to sign up!

First we’d heard of a date being set for a Car-Free Day this year (here’s our coverage of last September’s Alki Car-Free Day). Will be pursuing more information from the city; we had noted that a “Summer Streets” briefing was on the agenda for the February 12th Parks Board meeting. Meantime, discovered something ELSE – till February 6, you can take this online survey to tell the city what you thought of the 2008 Car-Free Days. THURSDAY NIGHT UPDATE: The mayor’s office confirms there is a “Celebrate Seattle Streets” event in West Seattle on May 31st. More details to come.

    car free day, again ? in this economy, shouldn’t the city save their money?
    or better yet, in an attempt to promote pedestrianism, maybe the city should spend money on ensuring all city streets are safe and all have sidewalks, instead of spending $$ to orchestrate a car free day.

    hopefully the survey has space for comments.

    when is the mayoral election again ?

    I took the survey and yes, there is a place for comments. It’s pretty short and straightforward. Doesn’t ask you to specify whether you participated in Alki, Cap Hill (the rainout), or Columbia City, tho – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
