Hello CAC friends- The Westside Interfaith Network (WIN) has invited Lisa Gustaveson and Jason Johnson to our next meeting on Jan 21st.
We are going to pack the house with friends and supporters of Camp Second Chance- you will want to be there!
It would be really powerful to have Top Hat and SHAG neighbors speak on behalf of the camp, to allow them to stay in place.
Is this something you would do? Maybe 5 mins to share your thoughts, and those of your neighbors?
And of course, invite and bring your neighbors!
Let's show the city how much we believe in Camp Second Chance.
Who: Camp Second Chance Neighbors
What: Meeting to show support for Camp Second Chance (CSC)

7:15p – Conversation Guidelines Presented
7:20 – 7:40p: There will be 3-4 community groups representatives presenting 5 min statements for and against the permit extension.
7:40 – 8:15p – Neighbor Attendees will be given 1-2 minutes each to present comments for consideration.

HPAC has been requested to support the permit extension by two community groups. We have also received emails about issues with encampments and RVs in the neighborhood not being addressed.
“Camp Second Chance is one of six encampments authorized and funded by the City of Seattle’s Human Services Department as part of the City’s emergency response to homelessness.” Founded on April, 9th 2016 – officially permitted on March 2017 by the City of Seattle. The Human Services Department extended the permit on June 7, 2018 for the Myers Way/Camp Second Chance to remain at 9701 Myers Way South for an additional 12 months, until March 2019. There is a request for a continued permit.
After the meeting a survey will be sent out via our e-list (get your neighbors to sign up!) to also assess the neighborhood’s desire on how HPAC should proceed.

KUOW: 9-1-1 lines still down across Seattle area. Here's what to do
A CenturyLink outage has downed 9-1-1 lines across Washington state and in other parts of the U.S.
Memo from the Seattle 911 Center: If you can't get through, call (206) 583-2111, 206 625-5011 or text 911.
That's right: You can now text 911. (Open text message; enter 9-1-1 in the "to" field. Send location of emergency and type of emergency. Keep it brief. Complete words. No emojis or photos or videos. English only.)
City of Seattle technicians are working with CenturyLink to "ensure our 911 service remains uninterrupted," said a Seattle Police Department tweet.
Call centers are having difficulty getting calls from landlines and cell phones.
There is no estimate when 9-1-1 service will be restored in the region, according to a King County bulletin.
