Thursday Council Committee Meeting at Miller

Reminder that Councilmember Sally Clark's Economic Development and Neighborhoods City Council committee meets at Miller Community Center this Thursday (3/15/07, 6 PM).

The Committee's agenda is pretty full: you'll have a chance to talk to the committee at the start of the meeting ( and then a chance to comment on the appointment of Stella Chao as Director, Department of Neighborhoods). The meeting will feature a briefing on the Mayor's Nightlife Ordinance, so expect lots of people coming to comment on it.

The Miller neighborhood gets its 15 minutes of fame at the end of the meeting (nominally 7:45 PM, probably later, Center closes at 9 PM). I (Andrew) was asked to submit a panel of names (but you're welcome to join us). Here's who I nominated and what they may talk about:

Andrew Taylor (MPNA) - Brief history of neighborhood and its issues. Effects of bar closure. GOTS program. Madison Street redevelopment: time to revisit the Neighborhood Plan?

Jon Vandemoortel, Chair, MaDCAP (Madison and Denny Community Action Program ) - Challenges of living near Madison. Cleanup efforts.

Heidi Ob'bayi, MPNA & MaDCAP: Continuing challenges and street issues in the area.

Chuck Weinstock, Executive Director, Capitol Hill Housing (CHHIP); Affordable housing in the area. Challenges and possibilities of including affordable and workforce housing in East Madison Street development projects.

Ellen O'Neill-Stephen, Deputy King County Prosecuting Attorney will describe her Madison Street taskforce, a coalition of neighbors, businesses and organizations dedicated to the improvement of the Madison Street area.
