Meeting Agenda

7p Welcome & Micro-Policing Discussion

Southwest Precinct: CRIME & SAFETY FOCUS GROUPS For South Delridge, Highland Park, & Riverview

Seattle University is partnering with the Seattle Police Department to conduct qualitative research on community crime concerns. Qualitative concerns allow SU researchers to collaborate with SPD leadership to improve the city’s community policing initiatives. As a part of the process evaluation of the Seattle Police Department’s Micro-Community Policing Plans (MCPP), Seattle University is looking for community members to participate in an hour-long discussion regarding community perceptions of crime, safety, and police legitimacy, as well as knowledge of and satisfaction with the MCPP.

Information obtained from the focus group will help inform your neighborhood’s MCPP so please come share your concerns and suggestions! Please feel free to email me directly any questions that you have regarding the focus group.

SAVE the DATE: Special Meeting Weds. Aug 28, 2019 with Jesús Aguirre, Superintendent of Seattle Parks and Recreation

A conversation about the future of Seattle Parks and Recreation with Superintendent Jesús Aguirre

In 2019, Seattle Parks will be developing a strategic plan and needs community and partner voices to help guide our priorities, programming, and services over the next decade. Seattle Parks approach is to listen to staff, get together with community and partners to discuss where they’ve been, and where they are going; reflect on their challenges, success, who they are serving, and who they are missing.

  • As we look forward to the next decade, we want to know…
  • How are Seattle parks, centers, and pools serving you, your family, and your neighbors?
  • What park amenities really excite you?
  • What park events and community center programs interest you?
  • Seattle’s got a lot on its plate (population growth, construction, rising prices, homelessness, new jobs and opportunities). How can Seattle Parks & Recreation help?
