Ballard District Council-your voice!

Published by at 8:00 am under Liveaboard Topics,Shilshole Neighbors

The Ballard District Council (BDC ) is one of 13 neighborhood districts formed in 1988 to promote, support, and involve citizen participation at the neighborhood level.  The Council represents about 13 neighbors in the Ballard area, like Shilshole, Sunset Hill, Loyal Heights, etc. The Shilshole Liveaboard Assoc has a permanent position on the Council.

Unfortunately, Mayor Murray last year dropped City support for these Neighborhood Districts because he thought that the “volunteers were too old, too white, and too many home owners”.  Fortunately, because of the importance of issues that affect our neighborhoods, these “voices” will continue to be heard and represent our local communities.

Please consider getting involved, and lending your voice to our Ballard issues like bus service, police protection, available parking, etc. Please read the Future of the BDC.
