Your quarterly community catch-up featured some great speakers sharing what’s new in the Skyway-West Hill area, and we made a big announcement about what’s next for our organization. Guests included: Skyway Coalition, King County Local Services, Skyway Water & Sewer District, King County Fire District #20, and King County Sheriff’s Office.
Held again over Zoom and Facebook Live on February 16, West Hill Community Association’s (WHCA’s) Winter 2021 Quarterly Community Meeting was absolutely packed with interesting and useful information and resources. Hear the fire chief recount the tragic 3-alarm fire that happened the day before Christmas Eve, get the inside scoop on how to get vaccinated, and let King County Metro explain how the Community Van program works (and how you could be a driver!) by rewatching the video.
While the COVID-19 pandemic may have prompted us at the all-volunteer nonprofit West Hill Community Association to host our first-ever virtual Community Quarterly Meeting, it has also inspired an outpouring of support and togetherness (even while maintaining social distancing!).
Our first community meeting of the decade brought dozens of neighbors together to meet our new King County Councilmember and learn more about the 2020 Census, a new recycling startup, how Skyway Park is expanding, and more!
Nearly 1,600 residents stopped by the King County Elections drop box at Skyway Library on election day, and we were there to offer support, high fives, and invite them across the street to celebrate democracy at our first-ever Election Results Watch Party at the newly renovated Beach Comber Bar and Grill.
Whether in person or via our live stream, folks paying attention at our Fall 2019 Quarterly Meeting on October 15th, 2019 at Skyway VFW Post #9430 learned all sorts of valuable information from deciphering what’s on their General Election ballot to what proposed land use policies are set to shape their neighborhoods for the next twenty years, and much more.
Our July 16th, 2019 Quarterly Meeting focused on a hot topic for the community: traffic safety. With so many tragic pedestrian and vehicle collisions on Rainier Avenue South and other local throughways, what can be done to increase safety and avoid future incidents?
What services will the first ever King County Economic Development Manager offer our Skyway Business District? Could the County buy more land to create better access points to Skyway Park? Who are the newest WHCA board members? About forty neighbors (and hundreds more online) joined us at Skyway VFW Post #9430 to find out answers to those questions and many more on Tuesday, April 16th at West Hill Community Association’s Spring Quarterly Community Meeting.
On March 2nd, 2019 we held a four-hour tabletop gaming session with the greatest neighbors and friends complete with the most awesome snack spread we could dream up (lumpia, quail egg chicken noodle soup, pub mix, cookies…).
How is King County working to improve services for unincorporated area residents, and what does Skyway’s new health clinic have to offer? About forty neighbors (and many more online) joined us at Skyway VFW Post #9430 to find out answers to those questions and many more on Tuesday, January 15th at West Hill Community Association’s Winter Quarterly Community Meeting.
