A Table in the Rain

We got soaking wet at Saturday’s WCC meet-and-greet in the rain, but we had fun anyway.

Grant funds to create the Picnic Place were applied for by the WCC.

Saturday, May 21, was meet-and-greet day at the Wedgwood Community Council info table at the Picnic Place, corner of NE 86th Street.  Many folks stopped by to ask questions and hear what the community council activists are working on.

One of the primary WCC initiatives is the Picnic Place which has been acquired by the City of Seattle for a future park, but the site is on a waiting list for development.  When it is Wedgwood’s turn for our park to become a real park, then we will interact with the community for design ideas, and interact with City resources for development.

Other current projects of the community council are to monitor street development including the Greenway on 38th Ave NE; help neighborhood block associations to present their funding applications to the City; and seeking food trucks as a means of bringing value to the community and a place to meet other Wedgwoodians.

If you have ideas and would like to get involved with activities in Wedgwood, contact us.  The next food truck planning session will be on Wednesday evening, June 1; contact us for info.  Later in June will be the regular monthly planning session of the WCC trustees (officers) at which project updates are given; contact us if you would like to attend.
