Following the vote at our June meeting, our Community Council now has Bylaws and Policies & Procedures in place and we are ready to hear what is on people’s minds regarding island-wide issues.

Our August 17 meeting will begin with an update and Q&A session with the Port of Seattle regarding the location of a noise monitor on Vashon Island. Our speaker will be Stan Shepherd, Sr. Manager Airport Noise Programs.

This will be an opportunity for the Port of Seattle to hear directly from you on what you see as our island’s needs, questions you may have, and observations on how airport noise affects our community. Your questions and observations on Airport Noise need to be submitted to David Vogel by Thursday, August 13, so that Mr. Shepherd has time to come better prepared. David’s email is

If time permits, we can ask Mr. Shepherd questions during the meeting as well.

The other key issue we will address on August 17 is encouraging people to run for the Board of Directors.  We want as many people as possible to run for the board. You can nominate yourself here.

The strength of our Community Council lies in our participation. Join your neighbors and share your strength at Vashon-Maury Island Community Council’s August meeting on Monday the 17th from 7m to 9pm.
