Are Changes in Store for the Department of Neighborhoods?
Will Sand Point Naval Air Station be Designated an Historic District?
and More

The January Federation meeting will include a potpourri of issues facing neighborhoods and the City. 

City Neighborhood Council Chair Chas Redmond will provide background and his expertise on issues relating to the Council directive  to identify new approaches for DON to implement community outreach and engagement activities given fewer resources and to prioritize the roles and responsibilities of Neighborhood District Coordinators.

Lynn Ferguson, President of Friends of Naval Air Station Seattle Historic District,  will brief the group on efforts to designate a new historic district in the City.   Since 1970, the City has established seven historic districts recognizing the aesthetic and architectural value of these treasured cultural and historical resources.  Now, the City is poised to recognize Sand Point Naval Station as an historic district with your support.

Time permitting, the January meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood.  If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at
