GLCC Supports Relief Effort for Greenwood!

Today Green Lake Community Council Chairman Michael Cornell presented a check for $500.00 to the Lee Harper, Executive Director of Phinney Neighborhood Association for the Greenwood Disaster Relief Fund to help businesses and employees affected by this week's huge gas explosion in the heart of the historic, vibrant and important Greenwood neighborhood.

"Most of the businesses affected by the Greenwood explosion were local, independent, non-chain, non-franchise businesses. Independent businesses like these and the people who work there are big parts of the hearts and souls of Seattle's distinct neighborhoods. We must support them," Michael Cornell said. Insurance may be slow or reluctant to pay claims and may not help employees who are out of work until their places of business reopen. The Phinney Neighborhood Associate established the fund within hours of the Wednesday morning explosion that leveled three businesses and affected dozens of other neighborhood businesses and apartments.

Cornell and Green Lake Community Council have challenged other community councils, neighborhood associations and chambers of commerce to match or beat the donation from Green Lake. Checks for the relief fund can be made out to Phinney Neighborhood Association with "Greenwood disaster relief" in the memo, and sent to PNA-Greenwood Relief Fund, 6532 Phinney Ave N., Seattle, WA 98103.

GLCC MEETING AT 7 PM WEDNESDAY MAY 11, 2016 AT THE HEARTHSTONE - FOCUS ON HALA - PRESENTATION AND COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

The primary focus of the May meeting will be a presentation by Seattle city personnel about the progress and current status of the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda. Because this subject is so important to neighborhood residents, this meeting will mainly consist of this presentation.

A big part of this presentation will be getting feedback from YOU, the Green Lake residents, on the HALA provisions such as increasing density, upzoning single family properties to multi-family zoning, reducing parking and raising property taxes in an effort to make Seattle more affordable for more people.

We will also be discussing the July election of new board members and officers of Green Lake Community Council. If you are interested in what happens in your Green Lake neighborhood and would like to help work toward making Green Lake the best neighborhood it can possibly be, consider running for Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer or Member at Large.

Green Lake Community Council meets every second Wednesday of odd-numbered months in the chapel at The Hearthstone. The Hearthstone is the only high-rise on Green Lake and is at 6720 East Green Lake Way North. All are invited to attend. Walking, cycling, carpooling, Ubering and riding the bus to the meetings are encouraged.
