January 26, 2022/ HPAC Meeting Agenda

Happy New Year – hope everyone is staying safe and warm! Welcome all to 2022, with just 6 months to go (fingers crossed) of hosting the West Seattle Bridge detour traffic, it feels like things may be looking up!

We just need to get through the landslides, volcanoes and Omicron wave. HP Stronger Together we can do it!

Our first HPAC meeting for the year will include guests from SPD to talk about crime trends, and from SDOT to explain their concept, “Flip Your Trip”. Since we are lucky to live at the south end of the West Seattle peninsula we have less commute time invested than some of our northerly neighbors. None-the-less, SDOT expects traffic volumes to only pick up from here with T-5 now open to larger cargo ships and more folks heading back to in person work. So anyone who can take advantage of transit, bike or carpooling is being offered $25 in free transit tickets to do so.

We plan to also have some open time to chat with fellow attendees about ongoing general concerns or issues in our area, as well as meet and greet. BYO supper or snack to a virtual potluck!

HPAC is an all volunteer community effort, if you have an interest in being more involved in the community eBoard or committee positions are open and volunteers welcome.
