Here are highlights for today/tonight:

WEST SEATTLE BRIDGE COMMUNITY TASK FORCE: Though the mayor’s decided to repair the bridge, this advisory group’s work isn’t over yet. Among today’s topics, low-bridge restrictions and enforcements. The meeting is online at noon; you can watch here.

MENTAL HEALTH 101: 6:30 pm online, first of two sessions presented, free, by Fauntleroy UCC. Details and participation information are here.

DISTRICT 1 COMMUNITY NETWORK: This community coalition for West Seattle and South Park meets online at 7 pm. Topics include ongoing issues such as the pandemic response and the bridge closure. We’re still awaiting a final agenda and viewing information – we’ll add both here after we get them, so check back if you’re interested in attending. (Added: Sorry, we never did receive accurate connection info.)

EMERGENCY SHELTER: If you know, or are, someone who needs a warm place to sleep, the West Seattle Veteran Services Center has opened its emergency shelter at 3618 SW Alaska.

    I would love this group to propose we look at the lower bridge timing.  If they can get traffic volumes in the area it might justify a “data driven” change to the timing from 9p-5a to 8-6 or maybe even 7-7.  Just need to see the data that may rule it out, or justify the  original timing

    Expediting the repair needs to be pressed hard.  Getting the bridge back open by Fall 2021 needs to be the schedule!  

Sorry, comment time is over.
