Comments on the Link Extension Proposal

posted: 18 Mar 2019 by: Mike Dey

A very important opportunity exists that needs everyone’s input. Sound Transit has extended the comment period for which route the light rail should take into West Seattle until April 2. The best for the community is the underground tunnel as it would displace fewer people and not destroy the viewscape. Other areas of Seattle will be tunneled including downtown. While the tunnel option appears more expensive the above ground options do not include the cost of imminent domain and the cost of displacement of all the residences from an above ground rail. We believe that without your input the decision will be to go above ground so your input is needed now. We encourage you to look at the options and express your desires. We encourage you to support the underground tunnel option. See attached link for the description of the light rail options and the link to express your opinion. Your opinion is important. http://wsblink.participate.online/

SCALE Update

posted: 04 Oct 2018 Seattle Coalition for Affordability, Livability and Equity (“SCALE”) finished its appeal of the MHA EIS in front of the City’s Hearing Examiner on September 10, 2018 after 18 days of testimony. SCALE’s attorneys, Bricklin and Newman, in addition to six volunteer attorneys from SCALE presented SCALE’s appeal representing the 29 community and neighborhood objections to the MHA EIS. The Hearing Examiner will make his ruling on the appeal by mid November 2018. Fauntleroy Community Association sent a letter to the mayor in August 2017, challenging the MHA EIS, joined SCALE in February, made two contributions to the SCALE appeal and had an FCA representative at most SCALE meetings. FCA believes that it is in the best interests of the Fauntleroy Community to continue to work with SCALE on the appeal and fundraising efforts to satisfy any outstanding expenses related to the appeal.

Letter of Comment regarding ADU DEIS issued May 10, 2018

posted: 25 Jun 2018 June 25, 2018 To: City of Seattle (ADUEIS@seattle.gov) Subject: Letter of Comment regarding ADU DEIS issued May 10, 2018 The Fauntleroy Community Association (FCA) supports land use policies that: retain the character of our Fauntleroy neighborhood and businesses, provide for affordable housing, with fair allocations for growth and density, concurrently develop infrastructure, including transit, utilities, green spaces, parks & other amenities to serve our growing community and promote urban livability. Founded in 1980, the Fauntleroy Community Association has historically dealt with traffic, parking, pollution, and other topics related to the existence of the ferry dock in our community. Over the years, our activities have expanded to include restoration of salmon habitat in Fauntleroy Creek and Cove, local parks and playgrounds, crime and public safety, and traffic issues as they affect all of West Seattle, including involvement in transportation-related committees and meetings, and providing flags for the crosswalks. We support Fauntleroy small businesses, and have purchased and planted containers for the business district. We sponsor two local festivals — the spring Food Fest draws hundreds of attendees, the Fall Festival draws nearly 3,000 — and we issue quarterly newsletters for 400 member households, businesses and supporters. The community finds enough value in the FCA that they are willing to pay annual dues to maintain and further these activities. Read More...
