FNC’s July 27 meeting at 7-8:30 pm on Zoom will introduce new Board member (Tawny and Bruce, welcome aboard!), devote 40 minutes to Seattle City Light—20 minutes to present and 20 minutes for questions–hear the FNC president’s report on CM Strauss’ Town Hall last week, and present the draft plan for the FNC Virtual Annual Meeting in September. Join FNC now to vote at the September meeting ( https://fremontneighborhoodcouncil.org/get-involved/join-us/ ), and plan to join us virtually in August as well.

More from the FNC President:
Dear Fremont Neighborhood Council Members, residents, and friends,
In light of the COVID-19 crisis and in the interest of everyone’s safety, the Fremont Neighborhood Council Board has been meeting electronically since March. We have been hoping that transmission of the virus would be controlled and that King County would advance to Phase 3, which would allow the Fremont Neighborhood Council to once again meet in person.
Since it appears unlikely that we will be able to have in-person meetings through the end of the year (at least), we thought we would try a virtual meeting. This first virtual meeting will be via Zoom. It will not be perfect; I am sure we will learn from it and will be able to improve future meetings. We recognize it is important to convey important and useful information to the neighborhood via monthly meetings so we are taking this step forward.
The bulk of the meeting will be dedicated to a presentation by Seattle City Light on the utility’s new four-year plan to invest in accelerating transportation electrification in our region. Transportation Electrification is the use of electricity to power buses, trucks, cars, ferries and other modes of transport. By using City Light’s affordable hydroelectric power, transportation electrification can lead to a number of community benefits including cleaner air, fewer greenhouse gas emissions, opportunities to save money, and new jobs. City Light has developed investment priorities for transportation electrification based on feedback from environmental justice community leaders, environmental justice organizations, labor unions, shared mobility companies, major commercial fleets and transportation industry stakeholders. SCL is interested in hearing from the community about which priorities are most important to us and they would like to learn about additional ideas we may have. There will be time for Q & A.
In the meantime, please follow recommendations from our public health agencies:
- Wear protective face covering
- Practice social distancing—stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times.
- Wash your hands frequently
If we all follow these practices, we can make a difference. Thank you, stay healthy, and see you tomorrow night!
Erik Pihl, President, Board of Directors, Fremont Neighborhood Council
