Thank you to everyone who attended the kick-off meeting for the development of the Baker Park Addition park project on May 20, 2017 at the park. Many neighborhood people including teens and children attended. Most participants and respondents from on-line survey favor improvement for visibility, lighting, expanding existing play area.

The July meeting is this Wednesday at Merrill Gardens at Ballard (5601 24th Ave NW). Agenda to come.
Our location for the drill is LOYAL HEIGHTS PLAYFIELD – not Kirke Park.
On July 29, our local Community Emergency Communications Hub volunteers will join a citywide drill to practice for a major earthquake. A Community Emergency Communications Hub is a pre-determined location where neighbors can gather in an emergency and share information and resources.
Communications hub volunteers are trained with additional skills and can collect information on local situations, needs, and resources in the event of an emergency. They can relay information between Hubs, the Auxiliary Communications Service, or other locations so that it reaches those in need.
If you’d like to participate in or observe the drill, it is a free event at Loyal Heights Playfield starting at 9 am. For more information, visit: http://seattleemergencyhubs.org/
