Purpose of the meeting was to establish 2018 goals for the Portage Bay Roanoke Community.


Discussion of Ongoing Issues focused on three main goals for the year:

  • Desire to have some focus on “fun” activities; and

  • Improved, ongoing communication with the neighborhood.


The following was agreed upon:

  • A general membership meeting should be requested with the King County Assessor, John Wilson, towards the end of February. Purpose of the meeting is to discuss property tax assessment particularly with the SR 520 Bridge Project.
