Greetings from Nickelsville!

On Wednesday September 14th, several of us from Nickelsville, plus a
lot from SHARE and WHEEL, including people from Tent City 3, Tent City
4, and their indoor shelters, attended Seattle City Council's Housing
and Human Services Committee Hearing on Resolution 31292.

Some of us from each group spoke to the Council with our concerns,
such as SHARE/WHEEL's offer to operate old Fire Station 39 in Lake
City, "as is", instead of leasing it to the Union Gospel Mission
after spending up to $900,000 fixing it up.

We also spoke to the point of Encampments such as Nickelsville, and
how the Mayor's now defunct plan of fixing up the old Sunny Jim Plant
site on Airport Way, would have had $800,000.00 in start up costs,
whereas Nickelsville has zero star up costs. Plus Nickelsville's
ongoing costs are a fraction of what the ongoing costs would have been
for Sunny Jim. These were just a few points we touched on, in the
relatively short time we had to speak.

Finally, we invited them to our upcoming Nickelsville 3rd Anniversary

Speaking of which.....
