West Seattle Tuesday: The big rezoning plan, explained. And more, from benefits to basketball


Thanks to Bob Spears for the photo of the Olympics’ Monday appearance! Here’s some of what you need to know about what’s ahead in West Seattle today/tonight:

GIVING TUESDAY: It’s another early-holiday-season tradition – today is “Giving Tuesday,” when you’re encouraged to donate to nonprofit(s) of your choice. Money, items, time, whatever you can do! One place to find local ideas is the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide, where we feature a “Giving Opportunities” section all season long – this includes places where you’ll find giving trees, donation bins, as well as listings for benefit events. (Not too late for us to add yours – e-mail the info ASAP to editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks!)

Two local benefits on our calendar this Giving Tuesday:

*West 5 is donating part of its proceeds today/tonight to Jazz Night School (as previewed here) and featuring a live performance at 7 pm. (4539 California SW)

*Shelby’s Bistro and Ice Creamery is donating part of its proceeds today/tonight to Genesee Hill Elementary. (4752 California SW)

Also from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

REZONING – ‘DO YOU KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON?’ As previewed again here last night, tonight is the community-organized workshop you can attend to find out more about the city’s extensive rezoning proposals as part of the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda’s “Mandatory Housing Affordability” component. While effects in our area are focused on the five “urban villages” (Junction, Admiral, Morgan, Westwood-Highland Park, South Park), zoning changes are proposed for multifamily/commercial properties *everywhere*, too. Here’s the original announcement of tonight’s event, 6:30-8:30 pm at Highland Park Improvement Club. (12th SW/SW Holden)

FREE PARENTING PRESENTATION: Learn about “Mindful Parenting” at 7 pm at Tibbetts United Methodist Church (WSB sponsor), presented by West Seattle Cooperative Preschools – details in our calendar listing. (3940 41st SW)

BASKETBALL SEASON STARTS: As noted in our coverage of Saturday’s 13-team Chief Sealth Jamboree, high-school basketball season starts this week, and the first game is tonight – West Seattle High School hosts Mountlake Terrace at 7:15 pm. (3000 California SW)

JOE ROSS & THE BIRD WATCHERS: New Orleans/honky-tonk jazz, 8-11 pm at Parliament Tavern. (4210 SW Admiral Way)

    The mayor has bent over for developers at the expense of  existing homeowners, as if we are bad people. Shame on him. What’s wrong with valuing existing residents over future hypothetical people who want to live here, and why should we bend over and allow ourselves to be pushed out of our single family homes when they want to replace them with concrete canyons?

Sorry, comment time is over.
