The March WCC trustees meeting, originally scheduled for March 19 at the Wedgwood Presbyterian Church, has been postponed. When a new date and time are finalized, we’ll post them on the WCC website and calendar.
The current incarnation of the Wedgwood Community Council was born on March 6, 1987, making it 31 years old today! To celebrate, the WCC hosted a neighborhood cleanup event this past weekend. Thanks to the volunteers who picked up trash and cleared the sidewalks along 35th Ave NE between NE 81st St and NE 85th St.
This past Sunday saw rallies for and against the 35th Ave NE Paving Project.
You’re invited to to Emerald City Women’s Chorus Spring Concert! The concert will take place on Sunday, March 25th at 2:30 p.m. at the Music Center of the Northwest, 901 N 96th Street. The entry fee is $10.
Join us on Saturday March 3 from 10 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. for a neighborhood cleanup event! We’ll meet in front of the QFC (8400 35th Ave NE) and work together to clear the sidewalks for a few blocks along 35th Ave NE. Wear your Wedgwood t-shirts and work gloves, and BYOB (bring your own broom). The WCC will provide everything else.
In early February, the 35th Paving Outreach Team emailed the following project update.
Neighbor Brigade connects people in our community who are going through a crisis with volunteers who can offer meals, shopping, transportation, dog walking, etc. It’s for all ages of people who need a little extra help during a difficult time.
Last September the City Council’s Parks Committee approved the 2017 Parks and Open Space Plan, which included funding for Wedgwood’s future park at the former Morningside Substation. Thanks to the Wedgwood Garden Club, we have a preliminary timeline for the park’s planning, design, and construction.
