Vote for Park and Pedestrian Safety community projects


Please remember to vote by tomorrow evening. This is Participatory Budgeting for Park and Pedestrian Safety projects in your community. And remember, you can vote for three projects in every City Council District if you are so motivated. (Sorry to all you friends and family who do not live, work, play or pray in Seattle and do not have this opportunity. Perhaps you can petition your own city or town to enact Participatory Budgeting!)

Miller Community Center Selected for $3.3 Million Solar Microgrid

http://durkan.seattle.gov/2018/04/miller-community-center-selected-for-3-3-million-solar-microgrid/

I attended an informational meeting about the selection of the site for this demonstration project a few months ago.

The City was choosing between Miller and Van Asselt Community Center for the location of the microgrid. The concerns were, as I recall, that the infrastructure of the (older) Van Asselt Center would be less able to support the solar panels on the roof. Other arguments centered around the central location of Miller vs. the overall lower socio-economic conditions around Van Asselt.

The Miller Community will now have a safe (and powered) haven in the event of any long-duration emergencies.

“In an emergency that causes power outages, the microgrid will continue to power the community center so kids, seniors, and other neighbors will be able to stay warm, charge their phones, do homework and most of all stay safe until we get the lights back on at their homes.”

Feb 28 Community Meeting Rescheduled to March 21


Madison-Miller Park Community members,

We have decided to cancel our scheduled meeting this Wednesday night, Feb. 28th, given that we do not have any new updates or events to bring forward to the larger community. 

Our next Madison-Miller Park Community meeting will be Wednesday, March 21, at HNA, 6:30 - 8:30pm.  At that meeting we'll give an update about the HALA/MHA legal appeal efforts (i.e.: SCALE) and talk about ways you might get involved, specifically:
  • March 29: Mandatory Housing Affordability District 3 + 7 Open House: 6-8pm at Washington Hall 
  • April 16: Committee of the Whole for Districts 3 + 7 (which means all Seattle City Council members participate) for MHA. All events are open to the public and provide time for public comment. 

Thank you!

Dara Ayres and Elaine Nonneman, Co-Chairs
