On March 3, a virtual town hall meeting was held for the Skyway-West Hill community which featured King County Councilmembers Girmay Zahilay, Joe McDermott, Jeanne Kohl-Welles, and Rod Dembowski, as well as Patty Hayes, Director of Public Health Seattle-King County (PHSKC).
On Thursday, December 10, West Hill Community Association (WHCA) held its Fall Community Quarterly Meeting (rescheduled from October) via Zoom and Facebook Live. We heard about some big projects in the works, from a new tiny home village and community message boards to planning for recreational and multiservice community centers.
As is widely known by those who have called Skyway home for many years, this community has long been asking for and fighting for basic needs such as social services and healthcare, transportation access, early childhood education opportunities, services and resources for children and young people, a multi-service community center, and much more. Yet King County has relentlessly and deliberately denied, rejected, and overlooked the community’s requests and needs.
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 one hundred residents packed into the auditorium at Dimmitt Middle School on Thursday, July 18th to witness something not often seen in unincorporated West Hill: political candidates. Debating. On topics directly related to our neighborhoods, including Skyway.
