At last night’s Victory Heights Community Council meeting (full minutes here), the annual neighborhood Spring Clean was announced. We welcome everyone from Victory Heights to come together to beautify our neighborhood this Saturday, May 24th starting at 10 AM. Meet up at the park in front of the preschool to get your supplies (vests, gloves, paint and brushes, bags and pickups will be provided). Last year’s graffiti removal was quite successful. If you know of any spots that need graffiti covered over or trash picked up, please e-mail Ardith Lupton before Saturday.
In other news, no word yet from CleanScapes about who will be receiving awards that were submitted last month. The Neighborhood Night Out for August 5th is moving full-steam ahead. It will be held the same place as last year on NE 106th Street right next to the park, with pot luck, ice cream, games, and flyer tables.
On May 29th, residents near Thornton Creek can meet up with Seattle Public Utility members to learn more about the Knickerbocker Floodplain project construction that begins this summer.
On June 3rd, the Seattle Department of Transportation will be holding an Open House about the proposed pedestrian/bike bridge across interstate 5 at Northgate. That meeting starts at 6 PM at Olympic View Elementary School, 504 NE 95th Street.
Watch out for construction on 35th Avenue NE near Meadowbrook as the road is closed for several months while the bridge is replaced, and Lake City Way will see a lot of changes this year including intersection rebuilds and signage.
The next meeting of the Community Council will be held at 10408 23rd Avenue NE at 7 PM on June 17th.
