Dawson also reported that, following the Seattle Parks & Recreation Department’s denial of the Queen Anne Community Council’s off-leash dog park application, Lewis will be asking SPR for additional options and has asked for a letter of support from QACC.

* Following a committee meeting earlier in the month, Public Safety Committee Chairman presented a draft letter identifying the community’s priorities and recommendations on various policing and safety issues. The letter will be revised, and the council will approve the contents at a special board meeting before submission to the city.

*  Ideas for how best to conduct the Queen Anne Community Council elections, which are planned for November, continue to be decided.

* The Queen Anne Community and the Block Watch Captain Network will host a virtual meeting from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 17. It will be the first of a series of presentations on homelessness, services being offered and options to better address this problem. The Third Door Coalition, which according to its website is a “solution-focused group of business leaders, service providers, researchers and others,” will present a data-based proposal on reducing chronic homelessness through permanent supportive housing, as well as discuss myths and facts regarding homelessness in Seattle. A question-and-answer discussion session will follow. Councilmember Lewis has been invited to attend as the chairperson of the Select Committee on Homelessness Strategies & Investment so he can hear about the issues, concerns and suggestions from community members.
