EVERETT - After taking August off, neighborhoods are back in action. Here is a rundown of what some neighborhoods are planning for September.
The Bayside Neighborhood will host two representatives from the former Kimberly-Clark mill this month.
Kimberly-Clark consultant Al Aldrich and project manager Bryan Lust will speak at the meeting. The neighborhood sits just above the waterfront mill and can hear the mill’s ongoing demolition work.
The Police Department’s code enforcement supervisor Kevin Fagerstrom will be speaking as well because some neighbors had complaints about abandoned houses in the neighborhood.
“It’s going to be a jam-packed meeting,” neighborhood chair Andrea Tucker said.
For September, Bayside moved its meeting to Wednesday, Sept. 19 to avoid conflicting with the planning commission’s Tuesday, Sept. 18 public hearing on proposed development plans for the waterfront once the mill is gone.
The Bayside Neighborhood meets at 6:30 p.m. at the main library branch in downtown Everett.
Mayor Ray Stephanson is scheduled to attend the October meeting.
Cascade View/Twin Creeks Neighborhoods
The Twin Creeks Neighborhood just celebrated the installation of its new neighborhood sign with an event filled with dignitaries.
The Cascade View and Twin Creeks neighborhoods will jointly meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17 at the South Precinct Police Station located at the intersection of West Mall Drive and Everett Mall Way.
The Delta Neighborhood is expected to talk about the lack of sidewalks near the Bakerview Apartments this month, Delta representative Terri Amburgy said. Neighbors are concerned about the seniors living in the low-income housing complex not being about to navigate around their homes.
The neighborhood had a huge National Night Out event last month.
More than 400 photos were taken, and the neighborhood may spend time at the meeting sorting through the photos, Amburgy said.
The Delta Neighborhood will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the Baker Community Center, 1401 Poplar St.
The Harborview-Seahurst-Glenhaven Neighborhood will host Mayor Ray Stephanson for this month’s meeting.
The neighborhood meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18 at Fire Station No. 4 near the intersection of Merrill Creek Parkway and Glenwood Avenue. There will be coffee served at 6:30 p.m. before the meeting begins.
Glacier View Neighborhood
The Glacier View Neighborhood now has pedestrian crossing flags at two intersections. The flags were put up last week at Colby Avenue and 50th Street and 50th Street and Delaware Avenue.
The neighborhood’s meeting is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11 at Lowell School, 5010 View Drive. The speaker and topic is still to be determined.
The Lowell Civic Association will have a work session to plan the neighborhood’s 150th anniversary for this month’s meeting. The area turns 150 next year.
The neighborhood is considering installing a sign celebrating the 150th. There also are two efforts to commemorate the history of Lowell through books.
“We’re going to boil it down to what things we’ll be able to pull off,” chair Jackie Minchew said.
The neighborhood also may have a representative from Transition Port Gardner to discuss an upcoming training session the group is holding.
The neighborhood meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17 at the Everett Gospel Mission women’s shelter, 2222 52nd Street SE.
The Northwest Neighborhood will feature Mayor Ray Stephanson as its speaker this month.
The neighborhood also is holding its annual potluck at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 at Northwest Neighborhood Park.
The neighborhood will be looking for a new chair in October. Current chair Shelley Weyer does not plan to run again because she has a large personal workload and will opt for another position, she said.
The neighborhood will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20 at Everett Community College’s Whitehorse Hall, room 105.
Port Gardner Neighborhood
The neighborhood will host Mayor Ray Stephanson for its meeting Monday, Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. The neighborhood meets at Jackson Elementary School, 3700 Federal Ave.
The Riverside Neighborhood is looking for a new co-chair. Send inquiries to Ritch at email@example.com. The neighborhood will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11 at North Middle School, 2514 Rainier Ave.
