In keeping with a 40 year tradition, the Wallingford Community Council will be meeting tonight from 7 to 9 in the Good Shepherd Center in room 202. We would have met on Sundays but the nuns didn’t want us working then.
Tonight’s meeting will focus on the dump (of course) and bike projects in Wallingford. Virgina Coffman from SDOT will be talking about bike plans in the neighborhood that will impact Latona and Thackeray, and will give an update on the boulevard plans for 43rd / 44th. I’m afraid I don’t have much more information to share on the bike plans yet–I’ll post an update here after we get the news tonight. Bike bits are from 7:15 to 7:45, with the dump the half hour after that.
For the dump we will be reviewing our preferences between the final 2 designs and will also be evaluating and clarifying what compensating amenities we think are required. The dump requires a rezone and we are busy finalizing what threshold we think needs to be met to have that rezone occur.
Finally, I want to put in a plug for our annual meeting. It’ll be fancier than our monthly meeting- in the chapel of the Good Shepherd Center May 26th, from 6:30 to 9:00. There will be refreshments and community organizations there to share their work with you. Councilman Mike O’Brien will be the featured speaker, as he oversees the remnants of the Department of Neighborhoods for the council. Finally, you’ll get to usher in our new board and we’ll touch on the merger possibility, but only to gather input. We promise for the 4th year in a row that there will be NO bylaw changes!
