Moss Bay Neighborhood Association
Meeting Minutes February 7, 2001
Rose Hill Fire Station
Laura Lee Pritt called the meeting to order.
The first to speak was City Manager Dave Ramsay. Dave had a number of issues he addressed, including:
Dave answered a number of questions from the the audience and was off to another meeting!
Laura Lee Pritt, our cochair, spoke on a number of topics. The new name for our association, Moss Bay Neighborhood Association, has been approved by the City of Kirkland and that will now be our official name. The sidewalk along the east side of Lake Street north of 7th Ave S, is being paved in asphalt. At least we will be able to walk down that side of the street now! Laura Lee mentioned that a number of City Board positions are open and the public is invited to apply. The city web site has information on how to do this. Mary Alyce Burleigh from the North Rose Hill association, mentioned how interesting it was to serve on these boards.
Ellen McMahon updated us on the new traffic circles that are being installed on 7th. Ave. S. The design of the circles and how many are to be installed was discussed. City councilmember Joyce Buchanon was on hand to help with the discussion, as speed humps have been recently installed on 10th Ave. S., where she lived before recently moving to the Norkirk area. Ellen also thought it would be good idea for our association to create a welcome wagon committee to greet new residents in our neighborhood.
Jim Lauinger, of the Planning Commission, and also owner of Lakeshore Pharmacy, brought us up to date on the Park Place renovation--drawing a layout of the new building on the blackboard and mentioning that the theaters may be going.
Leslie Keller gave the treasurers report, we have about $1700 in our account. Leslie also volunteered to do the paperwork necessary to change our association's name with the relevant state agency.
Don Winters gave the web report. The web site will need a new domain name now that our neighborhood association has changed names. Mossbay.org was suggested and met with approval of those present. Don said he would apply for that name.
The meeting was adjourned. Next meeting will be April 11, 2001.
