May Meeting Preview
1) Highland Park Way and SW Holden St. Intersection Improvement Project Presentation & Update from Adonis Ducksworth, Capital Projects Coordinator, Seattle Department of Transportation
2) SDCG, HPAC, and Riverview Neighbor Community Groups Merger Discussion Resolution to combine the neighborhoods of South Delridge, Highland Park and Riverview into one neighborhood council.
A request has been made to merge the neighborhoods groups east of Delridge Way in the southern section of the Delridge Corridor. We are proposing one neighborhood council for Highland Park, Riverview and South Delridge. HPAC has had representation from Riverview neighbors for the last few years and would like to formally include Riverview with this proposed merger. The neighborhood boundaries have been fluid between these three neighborhoods and neighbor leaders from South Delridge, Highland Park, and Riverview have worked together on a number of projects and issues over the last 2+ years.
By doing so, we will be able to combine efforts, resources and volunteers to accomplish all the things that we are currently attempting and those that we would like to do in the future. These three neighborhoods share many of the same issues, needs and wants. We’re hoping for a stronger, more effective voice when we “want the city to hear us”.
The anticipated date to discuss and vote on the merger for 3 neighborhood groups would occur at the May meeting of HPAC, which is Wednesday, May 22 at 7pm at the Highland Park Improvement Club.
This will serve as notice to our neighbors to provide some time to think about and comment on the merger. Please feel free to reach out and comment on this proposal. You can email HPAC’s executive committee at email@example.com or South Delridge Community Group at: firstname.lastname@example.org
