A half-dozen trains per day at 79 mph, 10 seconds per intersection are coming through Tillicum and Lakewood’s City Manager and Mayor answer your questions regarding Plan A and B budgets.
The Tillicum Woodbrook Neighborhood Association monthly meeting for Thursday, October 2, begins at 6:30 pm with the police report. August burglaries in our neighborhood were double that of a year previous, most in broad daylight.
Ken Jeffers, of the Point Defiance Bypass Project, Amtrak, will address significant concerns about safety and congestion with the proposed plan to route passenger trains through Tillicum. All sixty businesses, many of whose backyards include those tracks along Union Ave., are being invited.
And the controversial proposed budget that calls for the elimination of 11 full-time positions in the police department and the entire nonprofit human-service budget should Prop.1 pass on Nov. 4, will be presented by City Manager Andrew Neiditz with he and Mayor Doug Richardson taking your questions.
The TWNA meets at the Tillicum Community Center, just south of Tillicum Elementary School, on Washington Ave.
