Weekly Update 3/3/2017

One-way Bridge Meeting

 On Wednesday evening, the City hosted a meeting for downtown businesses regarding the option of one-waying the Old Bridge. We had a nice turnout and good conversation. For those who weren’t able to make it, there was far too much detailed content to take thorough notes. The City did record the meeting and I am happy to help you get a copy of the audio if you’d like it.
Ballots Due

A reminder that HDCA Board Director Ballots are due on Monday, March 6.
March 11th – Wayne Kelly Memorial St. Patrick’s Day Top Dog Parade
Dress up your kids, dress up your dogs and march them down the parade route! The HDCA and Chamber of Commerce have sponsored the King County Firefighters Pipes and Drums and we’re looking forward to them making another appearance this year!
