March Meeting Notes
At NDNC’s March monthly meeting, Giulia Pasciuto, a researcher working on a project studying low-income women’s access to healthy food in Delridge, presented her findings. Her project was sponsored by City of Seattle Councilmember Mike O’Brien and the Seattle Women’s Commission and was instigated by a Delridge-area woman who complained to the Commission about how […]
Seattle’s Most Diverse Neighborhood
The Seattle Times recently ran an article about diversity in Seattle which identified the most diverse block group in the City as one in southern North Delridge. The article identifies the exact location as just east of the High Point development. “This small area is 29% white, 26% black, 21% Asian, 16% Hispanic, and 8% other.”
I got a message from the Department of Neighbors regarding a meeting for the Greenway project proposed on 21st that would connect White Center to Delridge and then to Downtown. If you are interested in the input for this project, please mark your calendars for a meeting on Nov 19th. Details are on our event calendar (http://www.ndnc.org/ai1ec_event/delridgehighland-park-neighborhood-safety-improvements/?instance_id=1792)
The theme for this month’s meeting is “Doing Good in the ‘Hood” with ample opportunities to get involved and hear about your visionary neighbors hard at work. Hold on to your hats because there is a lot going on!
Monday, October 14, 2013, at 6:30pm in Room 103 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Want to get involved with the council? We will be taking nominations for leadership positions — voting in November!

This month’s meeting is Monday, September 9th at 6:30pm at the Delridge Library.
We’ll be hearing from the Green Seattle Partnership about the upcoming Green Seattle Day.
We will also have representatives from Seattle Public Utilities to hear your concerns about stormwater and drainage issues that need attention.
And we will start the discussion about a peninsula-wide West Seattle Transit Coalition to look at what the future without the Viaduct will look like.
Lots going on! See here for a full agenda.
This year Delridge Day will be hosting a new and exciting area called the “Green Zone.” We all know that Seattle is known for being very eco-conscious and we are excited that we have some incredible vendors and sponsors who promote this great lifestyle. This year we had the idea to group all the “green”vendors together to make a larger community and highlight some of what makes Seattle so great!
The following is a list of the vendors and sponsors Read more »
The NDNC meeting will be this coming Monday, August 12th at 6:30pm at Dragonfly Pavilion Park. (NOTE THE LOCATION CHANGE)
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for Delridge Day on Saturday, August 17th! We’ll be planning for that and hearing an update from Fair Elections Seattle. We have two support letters to discuss and approve, including (1) a letter of support for Delridge Grocery (for use in their grant applications) and (2) a letter supporting keeping STEM at Boren (with our belief that a stable, permanent school at that location is a benefit to the neighborhood). We will also discuss a voluntary alcohol deferment program that has been implemented in other areas of Seattle and whether that makes sense for North Delridge.
Hope to see you there! Read the full agenda here.
Please join us on August 3rd from 10am to noon to clean up the area in and around the Delridge Community Center in anticipation of Delridge Day!
We will meet at the Delridge Community Center (4501 Delridge Way SW) where bags, gloves, pickers, and refreshments will be provided.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about future projects you would like to see, please contact Lisa Taylor Whitley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-910-1425.
Remember, two hours of your time will make a visible difference in our neighborhood. Look forward to seeing you there!
NDNC Beautification Chair
I am not sure about everyone out there, but my block has had more than three new neighbors move in this summer. I guess the market really is turning around. After many years of wishing for some kind of Welcome to Delridge packet, Holli Margell and I have generated the first part with a Welcome to the Neighborhood flyer.
The flyer outlines several local businesses and parks along with City resources. We kept it all very printer friendly because we assume that this may be the first contact with the neighbor and you may not have email addresses yet. All you do is print, fill out the blanks and leave with your new neighbor. This can be a good excuse to introducing yourself and provide your new neighbor with a warm fuzzy feeling of being welcomed. Plus, the information on the block watch capitian could be very helpful in keeping the network alive and active.
Earlier this year, I updated the Living in Delridge flyer too.
Hopefuly these two PDF’s will start you out welcoming your new neighbors. At the very least, you can just drop off the flyer at the front door. I’ll add them to the About Delridge page for future reference in a few minutes.
If you have any other things you like to add to the welcome wagon for new neighbors, we would love to hear about them.
The July 8 NDNC monthly meeting has been canceled due to no agenda items. Enjoy your evening!
Join us for our August 12 meeting at the Dragonfly Pavilion Park.
