This past week was a busy one for community meetings. Here are the toplines from another one we covered, the Admiral Neighborhood Association‘s first “hybrid” meeting – in-person and streamed – on Tuesday night.

NEW PRECINCT COMMANDER: Capt. Martin Rivera, the new commander of the Southwest Precinct (which serves West Seattle and South Park), is continuing a series of get-acquainted stops. He was mostly there to listen, so no presentation, but a rep from Brookdale Admiral Heights voiced concerns about suspicious activity near its entrances, and Capt. Rivera said he’d talk with Crime Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Danner abut working on a plan for the building.

OPERATION NIGHTWATCH: Members of Admiral Church – where the ANA meeting was held – summarized the church’s plan to partner with Operation Nightwatch to provide 10 men with a place to sleep. (Nothing new beyond what we’ve been reporting – here’s our most-recent story.) During discussion, Capt. Rivera mentioned that he had interacted with Nightwatch and described the organization as responsible and well-organized.

HERON’S NEST: As we reported separately, ANA heard from Amanda Lee of The Heron’s Nest, who announced they’d won a $900,000 city grant toward purchasing the West Duwamish Greenbelt site they plan to use for environmental education and repatriate to the Duwamish Tribe.

ELECTIONS: ANA elected next year’s officers at this meeting, including: Drew Sowa will continue as president; Larry Wymer will continue as vice president; Tina Bendermacher is the new secretary; (added) Bridgett Markillie is treasurer; Stephanie Jordan will continue on as concerts coordinator, in hopes ANA’s popular summer series at Hiawatha can return next summer.
