Maple Leaf Community Council April General Meeting

Our April meeting is always one of our most important because each April we elect community members to our Executive Board -- the group charged with representing Maple Leaf to city, county, state, and national leaders. For more details, see the January community newsletter and/or our Bylaws
We will also hear another briefing from Aegis Living, the company redeveloping the Waldo Hospital site.
Stay tuned for more agenda items, but you can expec we'll be making updates on the developments on 8th NE north of the Beaver Pond as well as transportation issues.
Save the Date
Please save June 3rd, 7-9pm on your calendar. For the first time, Maple Leaf will get to elect Seattle City Councilmembers who directly represent Maple Leaf. Since our neighborhood is split into District 4 and District 5, we will have two Councilmembers representing our interests on Council. On June 3rd, we hope to have a Primary Election Forum for District 4 and District 5 candidates. Please save the date. Maple Leaf Transportation Issues At our January 2013 meeting, we received fabulous input from nearly 100 community members about transportation issues in the Maple Leaf community. We're beginning to sort through the issues and determine what we can solve quickly and what will take more time.
Northgate Urban Center The Northgate area, including portions of NW Maple Leaf, will be changing significantly with thousands of new residents, dozens of new businesses, and the arrival of LINK light rail. How all of this happens is of critical importance to the quailty of life in our neighborhood. We have created a special web page on this subject that can be accesses here.
