  • Seattle Night Out - Following on from the success of last years' events, Tom Campbell is offering to organize beer kegs again for any docks celebrating Seattle Night Out on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. There will be more information to come about how to get hold of the beer, but you might want to start planning your party now!
  • Aurora Bridge - I have uploaded the June 19th update from WSDOT and the latest air quality reports of the first sampling of lead-based testing to the Northlake/Westlake News section of the FHA Website. A testing baseline has been established, and monitoring will continue. The first document is a one page summary of results to date, all well within applicable standards. The second is a lengthy (41 pages) summary of testing standards and methods, locations, and raw results. A number of pages also contain the credentials and certifications of the testing lab. Compared to the last painting project from two years ago, this represents a quantum leap forward in the quality of the reporting and testing, and also in the (non)release of lead contamination (very little).
