On Monday, April 29, the two-week parking lot overlay project at SeaTac City Hall is scheduled to begin. All visitors will need to follow the directional signs posted on site.

Herbold: North Delridge Action Plan resolution

District 1 City Councilmember Lisa Herbold shared this notice about the North Delridge Action Plan in her newsletter to constituents:

On Wednesday, the Planning, Land Use, and Zoning Committee passed a resolution recognizing the North Delridge Action Plan. This resolution memorializes the many years of effort by community members in North Delridge to develop their neighborhood plan. I want to thank David Bestock, representing Delridge Neighborhood Development Association/Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, Lynda Bui, representing the Vietnamese Cultural Center and Parie Hines for taking the time to come and present the Action Plan for North Delridge to the PLUZ Committee. 


Local homelessness documentary film Trickle Down Town now available online

West Seattle filmmaker and activist Tomasz Biernacki became engaged in the issue of homelessness in the Seattle area over the last two years. He first got to know some of the people living in RV's he encountered on walks along Harbor Ave. SW and realized they were often victims not just of circumstance but of many misconceptions. Calling on his own photography and video skills he set out to tell their stories and quickly realized it was a much larger story. His interest finally grew into a full length documentary film called "Trickle Down Town" which debuted at the Admiral Theater last October. Since then the film has been screened many times at public gatherings but has not been available to watch online.
