Topics: City of Shoreline Levy, Hopelink and Point Wells Update
After a fun summer off, monthly public meetings of the Richmond Beach Community Association resume Tuesday, September 13, with news from the City of Shoreline, Hopelink and the Point Wells Study Group.
On July 25, the Shoreline City Council adopted Resolution No. 389, which places a levy lid lift on the November 8 ballot. If approved by Shoreline voters, Shoreline Proposition 1 would help fund and maintain current levels of police and emergency services, including neighborhood safety and traffic patrols, school safety programs and community crime prevention programs.
It would also help fund park and trail maintenance; playgrounds and play equipment; ball fields, restrooms and the Shoreline pool; and preserve recreation programs for youth, families and seniors.
Proposition 1 would also continue funding for community services for seniors, youth and individuals and families in need. A city representative will further explain the levy and answer questions.
Hopelink has been serving needy families and people in distress for many years and will be on hand to describe current and upcoming activities, including food and clothing drives, fundraising, transitional housing and aid to families in crisis in our community.
Representatives from Richmond Beach Advocates and other community activists will tell the latest on Point Wells. The meeting early in the summer about the anticipated release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement was very well attended. With the DEIS thought to be imminent, those wanting to comment and be a "party of record" need to be poised for action.
