Happening today/tonight: Ferries, buses, Delridge Council

Three meetings in West Seattle tonight that we wanted to remind you about before the day got too old:

STATE FERRIES’ FUTURE, AND WEST SEATTLE TRAFFIC EFFECTS: 6 pm tonight, The Hall at Fauntleroy, reps from Washington State Ferries are here to hear what you think about the system’s Draft Long-Range Plan, which could mean more ferry-related traffic on West Seattle roads, among other changes.

METRO OPEN HOUSE ABOUT ROUTE 50: This is the new route we’ve been telling you about which includes a Delridge-to-The-Junction leg. Tonight you can find out more, directly from Metro, by visiting Youngstown Arts Center between 6:30 and 8:30.

DELRIDGE NEIGHBORHOODS DISTRICT COUNCIL: Reps from neighborhood and community groups in the neighborhoods that the city considers the “Delridge District” will gather as they do every month for updates and discussions, and you’re more than welcome – 7 pm, Southwest Precinct.

More of what’s happening today and tonight can be found on the WSB West Seattle Events calendar.

    If you’re in favor of better ferry service to West Seattle and not having to drive downtown to catch an hour long ferry to Southworth, be sure to show up for the ferry meeting. It sounds like the folks wanting to force the shutdown of our best route to the lower Kitsap will be there.

    Please show up to the meeting tonight regarding the proposed ferry expansion tonight at 6:00. It could increase traffic in WEST SEATTLE by 68% on RESIDENTAL STREETS. This plan is being pushed through with little public input to local residents, and to my knowledge an enviornmental study hasn’t been conducted. Has anyone seen the current ferry traffic already??? It sometimes backs up nearly to California Ave. Please consider attending the 6PM meeting tonight-sorry Southworth.

Sorry, comment time is over.
