From Southwest District Council: Reminder – new Genesee group

First note from tonight’s Southwest District Council meeting – a reminder about something first announced at the group’s last meeting: We’re now less than two weeks away from the organizational/planning meeting of a neighborhood council for the Genesee area – which would cover much of the turf currently unrepresented between Alki/Admiral/The Junction. That meeting is still on for 7 pm March 16 at West Seattle PCC (WSB sponsor); SWDC co-chair Chas Redmond has put together a flyer that we’re expecting to get shortly – we’ll add it here (and to this meeting’s entry on the WSB Events calendar) when it arrives. 12:10 AM: Added the map he sent – and here’s the flyer.

    Thanks to everyone who worked to get this started. I’m looking forward to attending the first meeting.

    Is there a map that shows the rest of the neighborhoods? I’m near Gatewood and I’m confused about the boundaries. I think there are some descriptions that are new to me.

      Short answer, no. Follow the link in this story to our previous announcement, and we have a link in there to the city’s neighborhood maps for this area. But they are WAY out of touch with reality of who calls which neighborhood what. For example, if you’re “near Gatewood” – on the north side, you may be in Morgan Junction. On the south side (Thistle is the dividing line), you may be in Upper Fauntleroy (that’s one division where we do think the city got it right – though they don’t use “Upper” Fauntleroy – somebody else invented that and we adopted it, since that’s where we live) … TR

    Is there a point of contact if we are interested in participating but unable to attend the first meeting? Thank you.

      Yes – there’s a phone number in my e-mail somewhere – I will fish it out and post it here and at the end of this morning’s reminder if someone doesn’t get to that first – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
