West Seattle Wednesday: Delridge District Council talks marijuana; City Council talks surveillance cameras…

Nice catch!

(From Flickr member YLev; shared via the WSB Flickr group)
Five things YOU can catch, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar (where you will find even more of what’s happening today/tonight):

TODDLER INDOOR GYM: If your little one (or one you care for) has big energy to burn off, check out Delridge Community Center, 1-4 pm, for one of its thrice-weekly drop-in Toddler Indoor Gym sessions.

SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT SPD SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS? The City Council committee that in May 2012 approved the cameras – without discussion of their intended placement in recreational/residential areas like Alki – plans a briefing/discussion at 2 pm today at City Hall downtown. The meeting of the Public Safety, Civil Rights, and Technology Committee starts with a public-comment period. (Here’s our archive of coverage since we first learned and reported January 29th what and whose they were.)

SOMALI STORY TIME: One of many library story time programs every week; this one is offered entirely in Somali; all welcome. 5 pm at the High Point Branch Library (35th/Raymond).

DISTRICT COUNCIL TALKS MARIJUANA ZONING, NEIGHBORHOOD GRANT PROJECTS: Big agenda for the Delridge Neighborhoods District Council tonight, and you are invited (as always). First up, City Council President Sally Clark and Councilmember Nick Licata will discuss the city’s proposal for marijuana zoning (part of what contributed to this unofficial map we showed you February 5). If you have questions, this is the time/place to ask. Second, the council has to decide which neighborhood-grant proposals it will support – here’s the list of presentations that community members will make:

1. Highland Park Playground— Matt Whitman/Rachel Wright
2. Cloverdale Dog Park Trail— Mike Shilley
3. Findlay St between Delridge Way SW and 25th Ave SW Curbing and Street Trees— Patrick Baer
4. 9th and Henderson Curb and Crossing Improvements—Craig Rankin
5. Trail improvement in Riverview Ball Fields—Craig Rankin

The meeting’s at 7 pm, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge).

NOT IN WEST SEATTLE, BUT … the Northwest Flower and Garden Show is sponsoring WSB right now to make sure you hear about it; this is day one, and it’s on through Sunday (February 24). Details in our calendar listing.
