State S/Central Neighborhood Association
January 6, 2000 Houghton Fire Station
Dan Krehbiel called the meeting to order. Karen Lightfeldt, President of Kirkland Downtown on the Lake, spoke about that organization and invited SSCNA to send a representative to their meetings. Dan said that he would be interested in doing so.
David Godrey from the Kirkland Traffic Dept. spoke about the Nieghborhood Traffic Control Program. Speed humps, parking, and traffic volume in the area surrounding the proposed Pace project was discussed. It was suggested by association members that parking along 5th Place South be restricted so that traffic coming from the Pace project would be encouraged to use this route instead of 7th Avenue South. David said that the crosswalk at 7th Ave. S. and Lake Street was scheduled to be upgraded with the blinking lite system in February. The possibility of permit parking along 7th Ave. S. was discussed. A traffic signal at 5th Pl S at 6th St. S. was mentioned.
Don Winters read the minutes of the Nov. 4 meeting.
Leslie Keller gave the treasurer’s report and handed out a copy to everyone. Total revenue for 1998 and 1999 was $3,591. Total expenses were $1,494.78. The association may have to return some unused grant money to the city.

Don Winters spoke about our web page that is in development. We have a volunteer, Robert Fleming, who is helping create the page. We also have a couple of hosting options with MyEastside.com site and also with Kirkland.net. Kari said that the City might purchase a domain name for “kirklandneighborhoods.org” and that all the neighborhoods might link to that page and become subdomains with urls such as “kirklandneighborhoods/SSCNA.htm.
The meeting was adjourned.
