- Birdloop – big planting, first Saturday in
- Community Garden – Would like to get owl
boxes for the garden. Michael suggested Laura contact
Eastside Audubon directly. In 2018, MCGA has
donated 7000 pounds of food to HopeLink!
- Sound Transit - Parks and Sound Transit have
been working together on an ongoing basis on Tree
Replacement, Wetland Mitigation, Osprey nest
relocation. Nothing is different The wetland
mitigation is likely to be done in the field area a bit
south of the Rowing Club access road. Norah’s belief
was that access to the mitigation site would be
explicitly disallowed. Greg believed it should be
possible. Norah will try to find out the rules.
Norah is working with Sound Transit on just how many
trees will need to be replaced. Norah is prioritizing
(1) additional trees screening the rail right-of-way,
and (2) [hopefully large] trees around the mansion.
Norah would also like planting to start soon, even
before trees are cut.
- Cut-through Traffic – Until a longer-term
solution is determined, increased enforcement of
existing rules will be conducted. Greg requested that
additional data gathering on cut-through traffic be part
of the increased enforcement effort.
- Dudley Carter Sculptures – In Place!

information going on the website. Laura suggested an
informational sign on the kiosk in the Pet Memorial
