7:05  Approve agenda for tonight; approve minutes from May: Anjala moves, Dennis seconds, all in favor. Add the note that we have a high volume b & w laser printer that Anjala bought and donated before – we think it may be in our storage space at Classic Foods. Mostly the printing fees we spend are copies of Luke’s monthly treasurer reports, and he also copies a bunch of holiday letters. We could get the printer to Luke’s house if he wants it but he prefers not to do that. Maija motioned to approve the additional note about the printer; no second but all approved

Comments Comments Off on March 28: Minutes from special informational WNA meeting

SPECIAL WOODLAWN NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING MONDAY, MARCH 28

7pm – 8pm, Classic Foods, 817 NE Madrona St

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 10.30.24 AM

Come hear about a 12-unit, 3 story multifamily project coming to the NW corner of NE Bryant and Grand. The developer will present the design plans and answer questions. Because this project is compatible with the zoning, the Woodlawn Neighborhood Association is not being asked to approve or deny this project. This is largely an opportunity for neighbors to hear what is planned and make suggestions if any concerns about design or construction.

At our April 6th WNA meeting, we will be hearing about two projects planned for NE Dekum (between MLK/Grand). Each project will be 4-story buildings with 22 multifamily units.
