HPAC meetings resume tonight!

September HPAC meetings will resume tonight- Wednesday, 9/23, at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden. Please join us at 6:30 for an informal meet and greet (bring some treats to share if you’d like), and the meeting starts at 7:00.

The agenda includes a discussion with an EPA Coordinator about community involvement in the Duwamish Superfund cleanup—what’s worked, what hasn’t, what could be done better, etc. The Community Involvement Plan for the cleanup is being revised and our communities’ feedback is needed on how we want to be kept informed and involved as the cleanup moves forward.

May HPAC Meeting Agenda

Next Wednesday, May 27th, Seattle University graduate research assistants will be holding a focus group. This focus group will be centered around Highland Park’s crime concerns, our perceptions of our Micro-Community Policing Plan developed by the SW precinct of the Seattle Police Department and our perceptions of how the police are doing at addressing our specific crime concerns. This will be a time to be honest and have a great discussion about Highland Park’s Micro-Community Policing Plan including its development, progress, and evolution.  Your attendance, concerns and feelings would be much appreciated- while this is being run by Seattle University and not the Seattle Police, the results/concerns can be shared with the police if the community wants that to happen- please join the discussion! It should only last about an hour.

April HPAC Agenda

We will be having a guest speaker talking about Priority Hire joining us for Wednesday’s HPAC meeting: The City of Seattle recently passed a Priority Hire ordinance which will improve access to construction employment and improve training programs for workers in need of family-wage jobs. The ordinance prioritizes the hiring of residents that live in economically distressed areas in Seattle and King County on city funded construction projects- and 98106 qualifies. See this website for more information on Priority Hire.

Chas Redmond will also be joining us to speak about his candidacy for District 1 City Council Representative.
