Toplines from this month’s Alki Community Council meeting, covered by WSB’s Patrick Sand:
NOISE ENFORCEMENT: So now that the city ordinance has changed, what’s the plan? An ACC subcommittee is talking with police about that. Southwest Precinct Operations Lt. Steve Strand said traffic and patrol officers had gone through training related to the change, including what a 75-foot distance looks like. How many citations have been issued so far? He didn’t have any numbers. Meantime, the community subcommittee hopes to be able to gather data to quantify the problem, maybe with the help of the entrepreneurs who have long been talking with the ACC about their new technology addressing this issue.

The fundraising campaign for the plaza’s creation still has a legacy of $65,000 in the bank for maintenance. The ACC plans to talk with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society about partnering for the plaza’s future; the next agreement would have to be drawn up before January.
KUDOS: This was the first ACC meeting since thousands of people swarmed Alki on August 11th for Sub Pop Records’ 30th-anniversary megaparty SPF30. The music company had been sending reps to ACC and other community meetings for months. Verdict: It all went very well.
The Alki Community Council meets on second Thursdays most months, 7 pm at Alki UCC (6115 SW Hinds).
