Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending May 3, 2024

Train to be part of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The CERT program is a unique opportunity to gain essential disaster preparedness skills that can make a significant difference in our community. It equips individuals with basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, search and rescue team organization, and disaster medical operations. By applying these skills, CERT members can provide crucial assistance in their neighborhood or workplace when professional responders are not immediately available. Moreover, CERT members are encouraged to actively promote preparedness activities in the community, fostering a culture of readiness for emergencies and disasters.

The next round of training to join this program starts July 10th. Training is open to those who live or work in the cities of Burien, Des Moines, and Normandy Park. This is a 4-week course taking place each Wednesday beginning on July 10th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, with the final drill taking place on Saturday, August 3rd at 9:00 am. Residents who enroll in this training should commit to attending each day. A CERT certificate of completion will be awarded upon completion of the training and final drill.

The class is free, but spots are limited. Register now! If you have any questions, please call 206.870.6562.

New Street Signs Coming to Normandy Park

Have you seen the new street signs? The City is in the process of updating all its street signs. When this project is complete, all signs will be compliant with the required standards, including the mandatory size and font standards. The new signs will also have improved reflective material to make them easier to see at night. Some signs are already up, and we will not stop until all signs are updated. They will be in your neighborhood soon, if not already.

Be a Part of the Citizen Budget Advisory Group

Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions:

  • What are the City of Normandy Park’s most significant expenditures?
  • What services does the city provide?
  • How is the budget balanced?
  • Which capital projects are being considered?

Wonder no more!  Come and join a subcommittee called the Citizen Budget Advisory Group, made up of Normandy Park community members and residents like yourself, to provide input on the development of the City’s 2025-2026 Operating and Capital Budget. Your input will help assemble the proposed balanced budget for the City Council’s review and approval.  Meetings will take place at City Hall during the summer. Please email me if interested.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with me at

“Have a great week!”
