At last night’s meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council, we received a briefing from Seattle’s Department of Transportation Art Brochet about the coming Northgate pedestrian/bicycle bridge that will connect the Link Light Rail station in 2021 with North Seattle College across I-5.
Armed with a nifty model (seen here being admired by attendees), Art talked about how funding was found for the $35 million project, how the design was going, and the planned construction schedule. You can read more about the project here.
Molly Burke gave a short presentation about this year’s better-than-ever Lake City Farmer’s Market. It begins on June 9th and will run every Thursday through September from 3 PM – 7 PM. The library will provide a number of activities for kids and adults, there are new vendors this year (including local Shoreline honey), and Lake City Future First will have a tent set up each week with news and information about what’s going on in Lake City.
And be sure and mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 19th when the council will be putting on the Victory Heights Ice Cream Social. This is almost exactly the same kind of potluck party with free ice cream that we’ve done in the past on Neighborhood Night Out, except we’ve moved it to July to avoid conflicting with NNO. It will be in the same place on NE 106th Street next to the park starting at 6 PM. Next month’s meeting of the community council on June 21st will be an important organizing meeting, so please attend (we’ll be on the benches in the park because the preschool building is closed during the summer).
