That photo shared via the WSB Flickr group is by Dennis Cheasebro, who explains that it’s a phantom orchid found in Lincoln Park: “This orchid is rare and getting rarer, preferring deep, moist forests, and it’s extraordinary to find it here in the city. … If you see it, please let it be.” You can see wider views . On to the highlights for today/tonight from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
LOG HOUSE MUSEUM: Thursdays-Sundays, it’s open to visitors, noon-4 pm. (61st/Stevens)
WADING POOL NOTE: *If* we had sunshine and 70-plus temps, this would have been opening day for Delridge Playfield’s wading pool. So probably tomorrow if the forecast is true! Here’s the ongoing wading-pool schedule (including the hotline you can always call to check on the city’s plan).
ADVENTURE RACE: Tonight, starting from Alki, 5 pm. Read about it (and how to be part of it) here.
DESIGN REVIEW DOUBLEHEADER: With the current apartment-development boom, most Southwest Design Review Board meetings are back to two projects, twice monthly. Tonight’s meetings are at the Senior Center of West Seattle (upstairs) and begin at 6:30 pm with the second Early Design Guidance session for the ~150-apartment project at 3210 California SW (here’s the official info/renderings “packet”; here’s our recent update on changes in the proposal). Then at 8 pm, the board is scheduled to move on to its first look at 4400 SW Alaska, a 37-apartment plan first reported here a month ago; here’s the official packet. Both meetings will include a public-comment period. (California/Oregon).
DESC DELRIDGE SUPPORTIVE HOUSING ADVISORY COMMITTEE: Though it’s not listed on the committee’s official webpage, an announcement on the North Delridge e-mail group says there is a meeting tonight for community concerns/information about the under-construction homeless-housing complex that will also include the new Delridge Grocery. Meeting’s at 6:30 pm, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. (4408 Delridge Way SW)
