March Meeting Summary and Minutes

March 15, 2018

  • Bob Hillman and Geoff Larsen from Everett Parks gave us an update on the playground at Legion Park and the shrubs at Grand Avenue Park, respectively.
  • Cate Harrington from Take Back Our Neighborhood – Everett, North shared her passion for the Facebook group she founded, and their successes and challenges. We are welcome to join in any of their events. We may have them help us coordinate an alley cleanup tied to our May 19th Neighborhood Cleanup at EvCC.
  • Thanks to all who brought non-perishable food for the EvCC Food Pantry.

Here are the March meeting minutes. Thanks, Kristina, for taking them!

February Meeting Summary and Discussion

We had a super meeting on February 15th with about 40 in attendance. Our special guests were Cathy Reines and Joshua Scott from Koz Development, and Tyler Rourke from Everett Non-Motorized Transportation Association / Everett Bike Walk.  We discussed the potential student housing building near Everett Community College, and options for biking and walking more than driving. Also, Pat Sisneros from Everett Community College was there to answer questions from the college’s perspective. 

Thanks to our new Everett City Council Liaison Judy Tuohy for joining us!

Thanks to Officer Roberto and Sergeant Braley for representing Everett Police.

More details in the minutes that Kristina took here. Tell her thanks next time you see her. 🙂

Meeting with Mayor Cassie Franklin Was Terrific!

Thank you for so many people who turned out for the meeting with our new mayor Cassie Franklin. Like I shared at the meeting, a good meeting for us is around 20-25 people. A really good meeting is around 40 people. We exceeded 80! What a great feeling to see connections being made in our neighborhood and across our city. Thanks a bunch! – Kari Quaas, Chair
