The Wallingford Community Council meets this Wednesday, December 2nd, at 7:15 PM in Room 202 of the Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Avenue North.
Paul Willumson announces a meeting on the Ship Canal Water Quality project being undertaken by Seattle Public Utilities and King County. To contain sewage overflows, a large underground storage tunnel would be built from Ballard to near N 35th Street and Interlake Ave N. (see Wallyhood previously)
Carl Slater reports on the renovation of Lincoln High School, which will re-open as a permanent high school in September 2019. A School Design Advisory Team (SDAT) will work with the architects to craft concepts and specifications for the new program. The Wallingford Community Council will designate 1 representative and 1 alternate representative to serve on the SDAT.
A report will be given on the Waterway 22 Sidewalk project at Stone Way N and N Northlake Way. We have been informed that construction on this Neighborhood Street Fund project has been halted by the Seattle Department of Transportation. (see Wallyhood previously)
Please come meet your neighbors and work with us to improve our neighborhood.

Oh no! Why was Waterway22 halted?!
Well, of course to get the best information on that, attend the meeting.
My recollection though is that they got out their rulers and pencils and couldn’t make everything fit in that space. Maybe their standards for a sidewalk could be more flexible, but it’s tight. Could be an opportunity though – there’s also an effort under way to improve the shoreline, and if there isn’t going to be a city sidewalk, the shoreline improvement can work with that path.

I hear that Susie Burke was opposed to the project (she owns the parking lot just West of the Stone/Northlake curve) – so I am not surprised.
