Seattle University is administering the 6th annual city wide Seattle Public Safety Survey, which is accessible at publicsafetysurvey.org from October 15th through November 30th and is available in Amharic, Arabic, Chinese, English, Korean, Oromo, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tigrinya and Vietnamese. The purpose of the survey is to solicit feedback on public safety and security concerns from those who live and/or work in Seattle. A report on the survey results will be provided to the Seattle Police Department to help them better understand your neighborhood’s safety and security concerns. More information on the Seattle Public Safety Survey can be found at http://www.seattle.gov/police/information-and-data/mcpp-about.
Please circulate this information to your friends, family, co-workers and community members and feel free to post the information on your social media. If you would like the survey information in one of the other languages that we provide the survey in, please let us know. Public safety and security are community concerns. Please make sure your voice is heard by completing the public safety survey today.

There are two surveys taking place right now, each is open until July 31st. It is important that the city hear your voice. Tell them what you need.
Reconnect West Seattle Survey:
This survey is for everyone who lives or works in West Seattle. The survey is the community’s chance to let SDOT and our partners know what you need to move on and off the West Seattle peninsula at similar rates to before the High-Rise Bridge closure, but with a significant reduction in travel lanes.
Neighborhood Prioritications Process Ballots: for Southwest Seattle, Georgetown, SODO and South Park.
The ballots include lists of potential projects that were generated from ideas we have received from community, along with some of our own ideas, and projects from existing transportation and neighborhood plans. While a much larger mix of projects remain on our radar, we recognize the need for immediate action. Therefore, the lists include projects that can be completed quickly and cost less than $100,000.
Dear FCC Families and Friends,
I hope everyone is well! By now you should have received a link to access our now online auction catalogue – take a peek! Bidding starts June 8th and goes thru midnight on June 14th! We are very excited to see how this new auction format goes although we will miss seeing everyone in person this year. If you didn’t receive an email with link to the auction (from schoolauction.net) please let us know.
I also wanted to let you all know about a fun addition to this year’s online auction – our lovely caterer’s Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes has offered to compliment this year’s online auction with a special take-home (or delivery if in West Seattle) meal on June 12 so we can still feel like we are celebrating together from our homes. There is also a second option to get a meal on June 17th! $10 from every meal purchased on June 12th or 17th will go towards the FCC auction!
Please see the attached flier for more information on the meal options available and the link to sign-up (For the June 12th option orders need to be placed by June 10th). We don’t have the menu yet for June 17th but will forward it to you all soon.
Thank you Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes!!
Carey Nickels, Auction Chair
