Register to Attend The Fauntleroy Community Association will hold its Annual Membership Meeting on Tuesday April 13th, 2020 at 7:00 PM. Due to continued restrictions around COVID-19 the FCA will hold this meeting virtually using Zoom.
The Annual Meeting is an important opportunity for the FCA membership to hear how the FCA has represented them throughout the previous calendar year, and to cast a ballot for your appointed board members. The agenda for the meeting included a review of the accomplishments of 2020 and a vote for Board members. The ballot for Board members is:
Typically we hold this meeting in conjunction with our Food Fest, a time to come out of our homes, meet up with friends and neighbors, share some delicious food provided by local establishments and business parthers. This year however, due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), we elected not to hold the meeting in person in order to ensure the safety of our community.
Our monthly business meetings are typically conducted at the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse on the second Tuesday of every month (with the exception of August and December) at 7:00 in the evening. Meetings are open to the public.

Hello Fauntleroy, Vashon and Southworth community members:
At the end of 2020, Washington State Ferries began discussions with stakeholders about how best to engage communities in the Fauntleroy ferry terminal replacement project given current realities. Now we have turned the corner into 2021, we are excited to announce upcoming virtual community meetings. We hope you can participate to learn more about why the current terminal needs to be replaced, how project plans will be developed, and how the community can be involved over a multi-year planning process.

These meetings are the first part of the engagement process, and we need your help to ensure we get connected to communities potentially affected by this project. Community engagement is key creating robust, informed, and productive conversations about the challenges facing the Fauntleroy ferry terminal and subsequently, the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth (Triangle) route. Please share these meeting details with your networks; all are welcome.
If you are unable to attend either meeting, we will post the video recordings of both meetings online and take comments and questions by email. We will also be posting an application to be a part of the project Community Advisory Committee that will help guide the project over the next two years.
Please let me know if you have questions and I hope you’re able to join us for an upcoming community meeting.

The SW Precinct is seeing an uncharacteristic increase in aggravated assault incidents, with the majority of these being domestic violence related.
Given this, and nature of the last year, the Seattle Police Department would like to offer the following crime prevention newsletter focus on domestic violence- including what is domestic violence, what types of resources are available, and how to report domestic violence to law enforcement.
Always remember- if you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence or is in danger, call 911 immediately. Please also keep in mind that you can text 911, if you are in a situation where it is unsafe to speak. Call if you can, text if you can’t!Read More...

Every two years, the Fauntleroy Community Association conducts a survey of over 3000 residents in Fauntleroy. We ask questions about current issues affecting the Fauntleroy community, West Seattle, and Seattle as a whole. This allows us to understand what is important to our community members and helps the board set priorities.
The FCA exists to consider and act on concerns affecting the quality of life and character of the Fauntleroy community. Examples of issues and projects we have engaged in include public safety, the ferry, zoning and parking. We also sponsor or co-sponsor events such as the Fall Festival, the Fauntleroy Food Fest, the business triangle planter boxes and this year’s Halloween pumpkin hunt.
Take the Survey Your responses to this survey will be treated as anonymous and the survey results will be summarized and available for public review in early 2021.

The SW Precinct has recently seen an increase in car prowl incidents in our William 2 (W2) patrol beat area, specifically on and around Beach Drive SW. These incidents are mostly occurring in the night time hours.
Here is the link to our Patrol Beat/Sector map- https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/police/Precincts/maps/Southwest_Precinct.pdf
In order to address this increase, we would like to remind our community about the following car prowl prevention strategies:
• Check vehicle regularly (especially important during COVID times)
• Never leave valuables in plain view
• Hide chargers and accessories that indicate an electronic device may be in the vehicle
• Remove garage door openers, key cards and other keys from the vehicle
• If possible, park vehicle in a busy, locked, monitored and/or well-lit area
• Install anti-theft devices
• If possible, activate alarm

In an effort to bring some fun to the dwindling daylight, throughout the week of October 26-30, The Fauntleroy Community Association is sponsoring a community pumpkin hunt. If you search around the Endolyne/Fauntleroy area, you may find a white pumpkin – or even a beautiful blown glass pumpkin – with a note attached. Some even include a gift certificate for use at our local merchants, compliments of the FCA board members.
We hope you’ll participate. We encourage you to take your pumpkin home with you, then take a picture of yourself with your pumpkin, and post it to your Facebook page, with #FCApumpkins
