Very busy day/night on the peninsula! Here are the highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

SENIOR RESOURCE AND WELLNESS FAIR: Multiple-vendor event under way now and continuing until 12:30 pm at the Senior Center of West Seattle. (4217 SW Oregon)

HALA HEARING: City Councilmembers will be at Chief Sealth International High School tonight for a formal public hearing on the proposed Mandatory Housing Affordability upzoning. If you want to speak, signups start at 5:30 pm. The event starts at 6 with a presentation and then it’s public comment time right afterward. In the auditorium. If you want a refresher, see our story on yesterday’s City Council discussion of what’s proposed for West Seattle/South Park. (2600 SW Thistle)

AVALON PROJECT OPEN HOUSE: Last month, we reported on what SDOT is now planning for the SW Avalon rechannelization and repaving project, which includes a few blocks of 35th just south of Avalon. Luna Park-area businesses remain concerned about parking removal. 5:30-7:30 pm tonight at American Legion Post 160 HQ, you can stop in and talk with SDOT reps about the project – concerns, questions, whatever you have.

TUNNEL-TOLLING HEARING: This is a two-part event – informational open house 5:30-6:30 pm, then a meeting to take public comment, starting at 6:30 pm.

This is at High Point Community Center. (6920 34th SW)
