Mayor McGinn Town Hall tonight at the University Heights Center

Have a question you’ve just been dying to ask Mayor Mike McGinn, in person? Want to learn more about city departments and local volunteer organizations?

Hop on your bike* and head down to the University Heights Center (5031 University Way NE)  tonight, and you’ll get your chance.

Here’s the agenda (via the University Neighborhood Service Center):

5:30-6:30 City Departments and local volunteer organization will have information tables and be available to answer questions and provide volunteer opportunities

6:30-6:35 Performance from the Broadway Bound singers

6:35-8:00 Open question and answer session with the Mayor and City staff

This is the Mayor’s first town hall of the year. More are planned for the future, presumably in other areas of the city.

One of the things you might want to ask Mayor McGinn about are the lovely potholes (dark and deep) on Ravenna Blvd. Here we have some background information for you: The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to resurface the entire thing (between Green Lake and 15th Avenue NE) in 2012. Until then, a work order has been made to help fill the gaps before the “Bridging the Gap” levy money can really smooth things over. Read the entire statement from the SDOT here, on My Green Lake.
