First 2023 HPAC Meeting, Wed. Jan. 25, 7-8:30p.m./via Zoom~

Welcome all to 2023 and lunar New Year of the Rabbit – a new year for engagement and solidarity! Join us virtually for our first meeting of the year

We’ll be welcoming our new SW Precinct LEAD Project Manager Michelle McClendon for updates on public safety around the Rozella Building in South Delridge and to hear about other area concerns and hotspots. You may remember Sean Blackwell in this role last year. He’s been reassigned to another position, we wish him well and will miss him and his tremendous work building awareness and coalitions in the neighborhood, Michelle is excited to take up where he left off.

HPAC Co-Chair Craig Rankin will report out on an exciting project going on to collect oral histories about the Duwamish Greenbelt and share the new West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails map.

From the WDGT group: “What do you know of the history of the West Duwamish Greenbelt?  Have you or your family or your family before you lived near the greenbelt?  Do you know others who have experienced this history?The West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group is looking for people with memories of the greenbelt. We will be hosting an oral history forum this winter to discover and record this history.  We are looking for stories, photographs, and artifacts to be shared. Please reply to with a name and contact information if you would like to participate in this event or if you know of someone we should contact.”

HPAC eBoard folks will report out and discuss the current City of Seattle work on the One Seattle Comprehensive Plan which has numerous implications for the future way our community grows. Notably the plan lists our area as one with a high risk of displacement. They have a virtual Community Meeting happening Jan. 30, 6-7:30pm.

SDOT Director Greg Spotts will be in attendance to hear from you how traffic is flowing in the community and any trouble spots or issues. Be sure to check out his Twitter feed @Spottnik if you enjoy geeking out on traffic related detail. During the recent low-bridge hydraulic work he live tweeted shots of the crew getting the piston out of the bridge turning mechanism for example.

Look forward to seeing you online at this link:
