WELCOME TO THE NW DISTRICT COUNCIL

The Northwest District Council is an organization of vibrant neighborhood groups working hard to keep this district a great place to work, play, visit, and live. The efforts of our active local neighborhood councils make living here the best it can be, ensuring neighborhood schools, libraries, parks, roads, utilities, and other amenities are maintained and enhanced for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all. The NW District Council works with other Districts, the City of Seattle, and state and regional entities to make life better for everyone.

PROGRESS MADE ON PROCURING SITE FOR NORTH PRECINCT POLICE STATION

SEATTLE - The city of Seattle is making progress on securing a property at the SE corner of Aurora Avenue North and North 130th Street for the new SPD North Precinct site. In December 2013 City Council authorized acquisition of 3 parcels of land for the new Station. Negotiations with the property owners and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments of two of the sites are under way. A surveyor has been hired to confirm the property boundaries prior to the City assuming ownership and a hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on March 28, 2014, in the King County Superior Court on the designation of Public Use and Necessity to allow purchase by negotiated settlement or, if necessary, using its power of eminent domain (condemnation). The project team will discuss the project and building concepts with the Seattle Design Commission on May 15, 2014. You can also visit the New North Precinct Station project website for more information and to sign up for the project's listserv.

FEMA CERT TRAINING HELD 2X YEARLY

After a major disaster, emergency services people rely on will be overwhelmed and unable to meet the increased demand. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training provides a combination of skills based classes covering Fire Suppression, Utility Control, Light Search and Rescue and Disaster First Aid, in addition to basic tenants of Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Response.
