West Seattle Meetings on BEX IV

Over in West Seattle, they are not letting any grass grow under their feet.  They have four community meetings on the preliminary BEX IV plans for their area. 

They, along with everyone else, do need to understand that BEX IV has to be considered in a "big picture" type of way but yes, of course, do look at your region.

Director McClaren has a newsy website with lots of info including the audio of the BEX IV work session (thank you Rod Clark!).   (Also there is audio available of the K-5 STEM design meetings at Marty's website.)   I will try to get these audio links up as much as possible.

Schedule of meetings:

Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. in the Arbor Heights cafeteria for Arbor Heights and Roxhill
Thursday, April 5 at Denny from 6:30-8:00 pm. regular BEX IV meeting
Friday, April 6 at the High Point Community Center from 7:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. (note: in conjunction with High Pt. Family Night which starts at 7 p.m.)
Tuesday, April 10 at the Delridge Branch Library from 1:15-3:15 p.m.

There are other meetings later in the month that I'll list later on.

So Paul Allen and his power buddies want a South Lake Union school, huh? He got his SLUT (South Lake Union Transit) streetcare to nowhere, now he wants $32M of our BEX IV money for SLUSH (South Lake Union school house). I am sick and tired of the moneybags and elites calling the shots in our town.

I wouldn't mind seeing an option school in South Lake Union. Since the district has restricted bussing, sending the schools close to an employment hub could make things easier for a lot of families.

I agree that the SLUT is a complete waste of money and an embarrassment though.

Trapped in SLU

When I compare the need for well-established (but not necessarily wealthy) neighborhoods like AH and Roxhill (where I went 30 yrs ago), why should real estate speculators get bumped to the head of the line?
