Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending Nov. 19, 2022

The City is looking for your Feedback
In August, a proposition needed to fund the construction of a proposed Civic Center failed. To help us better understand the “why” behind your vote, whether you supported or opposed it, we are asking residents to take a brief survey on this issue. The gathered information will be presented to the City Council for review. Your participation is essential and will help us determine and communicate a plan moving forward. If you have any questions or would rather fill out a paper survey, please contact me.

Nature Trails Planting & Reforestation Work Party
Join EarthCorps and the City of Normandy Park on Sunday, November 20th, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm as we work to restore Nature Trails Park. Nature Trails Park is centrally located and features seven acres of wetland, a trail system, and a rain garden. Please register in advance through the EarthCorps website. We’ll see you there!

Winter is Coming – Be Prepared
As the weather has finally started to change, we want to remind you to take steps to protect your house and yourself before cold weather hits.  Many groups provide a variety of informational tips, including:

    • Buy your snow shovel now.
    • Keep water and canned food on hand, just in case.
    • Clean your gutters and downspouts now.
    • Replace the filter in your furnace.
    • Have your chimneys and woodstoves cleaned.

Just google “winterize your house” for many more suggestions.
