North Delridge Neighborhood Council - March Meeting Mintues

March 10, 2010
6:30pm - Introductions
- Jay's Parks & Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund Application: Named the "Brandon Street Natural Area Trail System" the project will extend the existing park trail system. This would be an expansion of 2650 feet in new trails and 10 acres of forest restoration. Notes made for edits to application. The NDNC council supports the application, and voted to approve it. Dave Ellinger authored a letter of support from the council. Final application due by April 2nd.
- Streets Fund Reminder: Types of projects include speed bumps, traffic circles, etc. Patrick Bergner suggested a project to slow the speeding on Brandon Street, either in the form of a Trail Crossing sign near the Brandon Natural Area trails or a traffic choking. Applications are available and need to be received by 5:00p.m. Friday March 26th. You can obtain an application and submit it via email to: ron.angeles@seattle.gov
- Transporation/Streets Committee Update: Mike Dady shared the news: Hudson Street curb bulbs are going in - a project that was purposed a couple years ago. Vacant houses: squatters in one on Delridge, and lack of effort to demolish another. Suggested a letter of interest from the council. (note update: Via the WSBlog, the site has had a permit granted for demolishing). Discussion regarding the light at Orchard and Delridge: the left turn light isn't a yeild light, note to city for a recalibration or change?
- Skate Park Update: The park will be opened this fall, probably in October. Nancy explained the grant process to fund an art feature. The NDNC needs to sign and submit a commitment for maintaining an art feature. The council approves support contingent on editing the agreement.
- Delridge Pea Patch: The Food Bank plots need volunteers to grow veggies. Contact Dian Brooks for information db@brooksbox.com
- Reminders: March 20th, first day of Spring! You can celebrate by volunteering your time at the Brandon Natural Area from 10am-2pm, or at the Delridge Community Center for a Park Cleanup from 10am-12pm. All ages welcome, dress appropriately.
