JUNE MEETING CANCELLED … but join us in person July 15!

We’ve decided to take June off from our normal schedule, and give you —and us — a much deserved break from online meetings this month.

We had been planning to focus on “The Evolution of Ballard Demographics & Neighborhood Planning: Past, Present, Future.”  The topic will be valuable, but we have opted to wait until later this autumn, when recent 2020 census data will be in the possession of Seattle demographers, and we can really have a better look not only at how much Ballard has changed, but also who Ballard is becoming.  So stay tuned for a re-start on this topic later in the year.

Please Mark Your Calendar for Thursday, July 15!

Traditionally, Ballard District Council has utilized our July meetings for ice cream socials among the attending members/participants.  This year—as it looks like we may be actually and finally rounding the corner on the COVID crisis and concluding our 15 months of social distancing & isolation — we are getting back together in person in July for a much needed personal reconnect.

Whether you’re a newcomer or ol’ timer (or anywhere in between), please join us Thursday, July 15, at Peddler Brewing, to hoist a pint and reconnect, to celebrate the growing end of our community isolation and to share ideas about how Ballard District Council can evolve to meet the civic needs of our fast-growing neighborhood.

Drinks will be half-price, thanks to the community support of the brewery.

We hope as many neighbors and local organizations as possible will join in.

As always, please contact us with suggestions for meeting topics or ways to connect with more community members! We rely on community input.

Please share this news with other community members and organizations in the greater Ballard area.  See you in July!
