November Meeting Highlights

Sunday, November 20th at 3.14 Bakery

Delridge District Council -
SDCG is officially a seated member of the Delridge District Council.  We will be represented by our liaison, Mike Riedel.  First order of business, we voted to request that the Delridge District Council have an opinion on HALA.  Mike will bring this request to the next council meeting.

Delridge Triangle -
This SDOT bus stop located at Barton & 18th / Barton & Delridge is in dire need of attention from the city.  Kim Barnes has secured a $1500 grant to begin the process of redesigning this small parcel to better serve the neighborhood.  A design charette (collaborative planning session) with an SDOT urban planner will take place on 01/28/17.  More information to come.

Housing Affordability and Living Agenda (HALA) - 
Growth is coming to our area, and we have an opportunity to shape it.  The changes coming to our urban village are complicated.  Get informed on this issue on 11/29/16 at a community meeting to be held at HPIC and then go to the 12/07/16 city-sponsored open house and tell our city government what you think.  Click here to access relevant documents for your review prior to the meetings.
