Highway 99 tunnel toll feedback meeting in West Seattle @ High Point Community Center
Jun 5 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The public process of setting toll rates for the State Route 99 tunnel is starting and the Washington State Transportation Commission is seeking public comment on toll rate options under consideration. Interested persons can provide comments to the commission at upcoming public meetings in Seattle or they can provide comments electronically …

The commission has spent more than a year studying and assessing all aspects of tolling the SR 99 tunnel, including various toll rate levels, possible toll exemptions, estimated traffic diversion to city streets, and effects of tolling on freight movement. Based upon this analysis, the commission has developed three possible toll rate options, on which it now wants the public to weigh in.

The Legislature made the decision to toll the tunnel in 2012 (RCW 47.56.862). The commission is charged with making sure tolls generate enough revenue to cover specific costs as required under the law, including toll operations, maintenance, and debt payments associated with the construction of the tunnel. In 2018, the Legislature directed that initial toll rates will not cover future repair and replacement costs, such as for the roadway and ventilation systems for the SR 99 tunnel. Proposed future toll rate increases would need to be re-evaluated if the Legislature determines these costs should be covered by toll revenue.

Toll Rate Options

The three toll rate options currently under consideration would be in effect from when tolling begins in 2019 through at least June 2020:

Option A:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are four different toll rates over six time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2022, toll rates increase 3 percent, every three years for all days of the week.

Option B:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.
There are four different toll rates over eight time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2020, there will be annual toll rate increases of 3.5 percent for five years that will apply to the weekday rates only.

Option C:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are five different toll rates over seven time periods on weekdays.
There are no toll rate increases during first five years of tolling. Then there are three toll rate increases of five percent each, taking place in July of 2024, 2029, and 2034, for all days of the week.

Public Comment Opportunities

The commission will hold public input meetings in early June in Seattle to gather comments on the three toll-rate options under consideration. The meetings are as follows:

(one in West Seattle)

· Tuesday, June 5

5:30 – 6:30 p.m.: Open house on tunnel project and tolling

6:30 – 8 p.m.: Public input meeting on tolling options

High Point Community Center, Multipurpose Room
6920 34th Ave. SW, Seattle

More information on the tolling options under consideration, and additional ways the public can comment, can be found on the commission’s web site under “pending actions” at: http://wstc.wa.gov/ The Transportation Commission is taking public comment on these tolling options until July 17. An official proposal will be announced in mid-July 2018, followed by an additional public comment period before toll rates are finalized in fall 2018.

Presentation by Cindy Elliser, PacMam Research Director

When: Tuesday September 4th, 7:00 – 8:30
–Doors open at 6:30
Where: C & P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave SW
Cost: $5 suggested donation; kids free

Advance tickets: brownpapertickets.com
Presented by The Whale Trail
Sponsored by Nucor Steel

Harbor porpoise are one of the most abundant animals in the Salish Sea, yet little is known about them. Pacific Mammal Research is dedicated to understanding more about this poorly understood population, using techniques such as photo-ID surveys and passive acoustic technology.

Learn more about this shy and elusive species, and the research that is shedding new light on them.

Whale Trail founder Donna Sandstrom will also give an update on Governor Jay Inslee’s Orca Recovery Task Force and how you can become involved in protecting the southern resident orcas.

Join us as we kick off a new season of Orca Talks! Buy tickets in advance here!

About the Speaker

Dr. Cindy Elliser has conducted marine mammal research for over 15 years. She worked with Dr. Denise Herzing and the Wild Dolphin Project studying Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins in the Bahamas for 10 years before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2014 and founding Pacific Mammal Research to study marine mammals in the Salish Sea. She also is an adjunct biology/chemistry instructor at Skagit Valley College.

About The Whale Trail

The Whale Trail is a series of sites to view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment.

Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 50 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the North American west coast, from California to British Columbia.

The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. Many members of the team first met on the successful effort to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod.

Envisioning South Park’s new Residential Small Lot Zoning @ SP Hall
Oct 2 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Envisioning South Park’s new Residential Small Lot Zoning (RSL)

Seattle is going to change thousands of residential lots from ‘Single Family’ to ‘Residential Small Lot’ (RSL) as part of the MHA zoning reform. The rules covering RSL have been totally rewritten and there are many questions about how it will affect our neighborhoods, including most of South Park.

First, what is RSL and what kinds of new development are we likely to see?

Second, how does RSL address displacement, affordability, density or sustainability?

Finally, how can we improve RSL so that it can be the most effective before the ordinance comes before Council?

If you live in South Park, are interested in zoning, or are a homeowner, environmentalist or neighborhood advocate, join Matt Hutchins, AIA for this informational talk.

–Matt Hutchins is an architect specializing in affordable housing, backyard cottages, infill housing and sustainable architecture. He is also a housing advocate with MOAR (More Options for Accessory Residences) and is working to reform zoning for the betterment of local communities, the city and the planet.

Rather than charging any entry fee, please donate to my friend Corina’s fundraiser here: Million Tampon Challenge www.facebook.com/milliontampons/

Stereotype Threat & Identity Threat: The Science of a Diverse Community @ South Seattle College
Oct 4 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Stereotype Threat & Identity Threat: The Science of a Diverse Community with Dr. Claude M. Steele

Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018

Time: 11-12 p.m.

Location: South Seattle College, Jerry Brockey Student Center, Rooms A & B (campus map)

Drawing on stereotype threat and social identity threat research, join Dr. Claude M. Steele, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, as we address the why, what, and how of diverse learning communities; why they are important, a working hypothesis about what is critical to their success and what research reveals about how to achieve that success. The talk’s practical aim is to identify features of diverse learning communities — schools, universities, and academic disciplines — that while good for all students, are especially helpful for minority students generally, and for women in STEM fields. The talk will also explore the psychological significance of community and its role in learning.

For more information, contact Sol Damaris Mendez, Student Life Program Manager at SolDamaris.Mendez@seattlecolleges.edu or 206-934-7950.

RainWise open house @ Young's Restaurant
Oct 4 @ 4:30 pm

A major milestone in ongoing efforts to control stormwater – one of the largest sources of pollution in Puget Sound – has been reached at a popular restaurant where three new cisterns have been installed that will keep more than 11,000 gallons of stormwater out of the combined sewer system each year.

In this latest in a series of community projects, the RainWise Program has partnered with the iconic Young’s Restaurant to install three cisterns, each storing 530 gallons of stormwater from the restaurant’s roof.

The cisterns capture runoff from 2,838 square feet of roof area and store it for use – effectively keeping 11,145 gallons of stormwater out of the wastewater treatment system.

The local environmental nonprofit ECOSS helped Young’s owners navigate the process to access RainWise, as it has with numerous diverse businesses throughout King County.

Learn more about cisterns and King County’s RainWise Program at an open house on Thursday, Oct. 4 at Young’s Restaurant, 9413 16th Ave. SW, starting at 4:30 p.m. There will be refreshments and information on how to take advantage of RainWise rebates. The RainWise staff will share information about the program’s goals and benefits, and how to participate. Anthony (AT & P), the contractor who installed the restaurant’s cisterns, will offer insight on this installation and use of the stored water.

Anthony (AT & P) is one of ECOSS’s 16 multicultural contractors recruited through this efforts. For over a year, ECOSS’s Chinese- and Vietnamese- speaking staff assisted and supported Young’s owners and contractor through the RainWise process.

“I have neighbors and relatives who pass by and ask me, ‘What’s this?’ I tell them it’s a tank that collects rainwater that I can use to water my plants,” said Van Young, who along with his wife, Ella, owns Young’s Restaurant. “The RainWise Program helps pay for the cistern and installation – it’s a good program and it benefits our community.”

With the new cistern capacity at Young’s Restaurant, the RainWise Program now has more than 1,500 participants. By channeling stormwater runoff from over 40 acres of impervious rooftops to green infrastructure facilities such as rain gardens or cisterns, these properties are keeping over 20 million gallons of runoff annually out of the combined stormwater-sewer system, and controlling overflows in local water bodies during heavy rains.

The Youngs urge other businesses, faith-based organizations, neighbors, and community organizations in eligible basins to take advantage of this program. Property owners in the Highland Park and South Park neighborhoods and many others are eligible for RainWise rebates that can cover up to 100 percent of the cost to install a cistern or rain garden.

Besides beautifying landscapes, rain gardens help control stormwater – a significant source of pollution in local lakes, rivers and Puget Sound.

RainWise is a joint program of King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division and Seattle Public Utilities.

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

West Seattle Democratic Women – NOVEMBER 2018 PROGRAM @ Admiral UCC
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

For our meeting and program, I thought we could take in a breath and take in a movie with other WSDWers and neighbors, since we all deserve something inspiring and engaging, yet still relevant and informative!

As we move from election season into the holiday season, our November program, we will be a screening of “RBG”, the award-winning documentary about Supreme Court Justice and “pop icon” Ruth Bader Ginsburg! It is relevant and contemporary (#MeToo, Kavanaugh, Trump, etc.), and can be a great guide as we pledge to keep our eyes on the highest court in the land–and it is a film that movie-goers and critics alike are still raving about!

Also we are actively seeking Officers for our Executive Board and Committee Chairs. If you are looking for ways to get involved but don’t know what to do, this could be a wonderful way, with a low-key time commitment, to make a big difference in our organization and in our community! Please contact me (werdachel@aol.com) for more information!

Don’t forget to bring your unused, unopened sample- and hotel/travel-size items (shampoo/conditioner/lotion, lip balm, toothbrush/& paste, cosmetic samples, perfume samples, spa/facial masks, aromatherapy products, mani-pedi products, etc.) We are collecting them for our December Holiday Service Party! We will be filling over 100 goodie bags, so we need as many of these items as you can bring (Thank You!)

Here are the details for our November Meeting and Program:

Date: Thursday, November 15th

Time:
6:00 pm — Registration/ Social Time Begins
6:30 pm — Meeting Business
7:00 pm — Film Screening — RBG

Program Venue: Admiral Congregational UCC

Address: 4320 SW Hill St.

Please RSVP to (werdachel@aol.com) with your name and the names of any others coming with you as soon as possible, so that we can plan the program accordingly.

Envisioning Seattle’s Small Lot Zoning Future @ Southwest Branch Library
Feb 19 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Seattle is going to change thousands of residential lots from “Single Family” to “Residential Small Lot” (RSL) as part of the MHA zoning reform. The rules covering RSL designations have been rewritten, and there are many questions about how it will affect our neighborhoods such as South Park, Highland Park, and the Junctions.

  • First, what is RSL and what kinds of new development are we likely to see?
  • Second, how does RSL address displacement, affordability, density, or sustainability?
  • Finally, how can we improve RSL so that it can be the most effective before the ordinance comes before the Council?

If you live in an urban village or are interested in innovative infill housing, join Matt Hutchins, AIA for this informational talk.

The Opposite of Worry: The Playful Parenting Approach to Childhood Anxiety @ South Seattle College, The Brockey Center
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Hosted by South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor) Cooperative Preschools:

Whether it’s the monster in the closet or the fear that arises from new social situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially challenging and maddening for children. And since anxiety has a mind of its own, logic and reassurance often fail, leaving parents increasingly frustrated about how to help. Dr. Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., the author of Playful Parenting and The Opposite of Worry will discuss simple, effective strategies that build connection and dampen anxiety through fun, play, and empathy.

Thu, February 28, 2019
7:00 PM – 8:30 pm
The Brockey Center at South Seattle

Tickets are $7 and available at eventbrite.com.

Interested in purchasing one of Dr. Cohen’s books? Our friends at Page 2 Books in Burien have graciously agreed to do book sales for us and Dr. Cohen will be signing after the lecture! You can purchase books onsite or preorder your copy here: BOOK PRESALES.

OPEN HOUSE: Little Pilgrim School, a program for children 2-5 years old

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2018
11:00 AM – 1:30 PM
9140 California Ave. SW

Celebrating 65 years of providing quality education in this community! Established in 1952, Little Pilgrim Preschool is nestled at the base of Fauntleroy Park in West Seattle. Our philosophy and purpose is to encourage the whole child – to help each to grow intellectually, spiritually, physically, creatively, socially and emotionally. Children enjoy a rich, play-based curriculum that not only prepares them for kindergarten, but also instills in them a lifelong love of learning. Whether finger painting, building with blocks, running on the playground or on a field trip to the neighborhood grocery, every experience is seen as a learning opportunity.

Bring the whole family to play, tour the beautiful school spaces, meet the teachers, ask questions and pick up enrollment information for fall classes. For more information, please contact the Little Pilgrim School Director at 206-932-5600, Lorrie@fauntleroyucc.org.
