Halloween 2015: WCC Trick-or-Treat on Friday, October 30th

WCC trustee Gretchen uses her superpowers to safely guide revelers across the street

Calling all boos and ghouls to mark their calendars for the Wedgwood Community Council’s annual Trick-or-Treat with local businesses!

On Friday, October 30, 2015, from 4 to 6 PM, Wedgwood’s stores will once again open their doors to costumed characters big and small. Look for the flyer in the window of participating businesses and be sure to thank them for their community spirit.

Also keep an eye out for the festively-dressed Wedgwood Community Council volunteers who will serve as crossing guards at the NE 75th Street and NE 85th Street intersections. There will be heavy traffic during those hours, so parents are encouraged to model good safety behavior and instruct kids to look and listen before crossing the streets.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at what’s sure to be a scary good time!

Get Ready for the Election

November 3, 2015 is the date of the General Election and the King County Elections webpage has a list of all of the candidates and measures which will be on the ballot.  Ballots and a printed Voter’s Guide will be mailed on or about October 14, 2015.

In the month of October there are two upcoming events for studying the issues and hearing from candidates.  On Wednesday, October 7 at noon, the Seattle Times newspaper will have a live chat session with candidates for City Council District 5 (includes Wedgwood north of NE 85th Street.)

On Wednesday evening, October 14, you can hear the candidates for District 4 (Wedgwood south of NE 85th Street) at a Candidate Forum.  The Forum will be moderated by representatives from Ravenna-Bryant, Roosevelt, Wallingford and Wedgwood, and will be held at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford.

Link Rail Info Meeting

Link is coming to Capitol Hill and Husky Stadium in early 2016. Metro and Sound Transit are working with the public to plan how bus service will connect with new light rail.

The King County Council is considering recommended bus service changes (detailed here) that would begin after Link light rail reaches Capitol Hill and the University District in the first quarter of 2016.

King County Executive Dow Constantine has proposed new Metro bus connections to get people to fast, frequent Link trains from North Seattle, Capitol Hill, and the Central Area. The proposal would also provide more frequent bus service on major corridors in those areas, and more east-west service between places like Fremont, Wallingford, Green Lake and Sand Point. Read the Executive’s news release

The County Council is accepting public comment on these proposed changes now. There are several ways you can tell the Council what you think.

Attend the public hearing
Tuesday, Oct. 6
6:30 p.m. Open house
7:00 p.m. Public testimony
