Karen Donohue
The representative for Karen Donohue was Judy Gaharda. She gave us some background on Ms. Donohue, who has 25 years of legal experience, and is now a part-time judge. Ms. Gaharda talked about the current court and told us that Ms. Donohue feels change is necessary for efficiency.

Farmers Market at NSCC
Bruce Kieser said he spoke with someone at Fremont a few years ago about how to run a Farmers Market. There are actually companies that manager Farmers Markets since it is complicated dealing with cost for space, insurance, and sales tax collection.


North Seattle Community College
Bruce said that enrollment at NSCC is up again and they are expecting the growth to continue. The number of students on campus is down due to distance learning and online classes.

The next new building project is on schedule for completion in June of 2011. Capital dollars are being used for these buildings.

The College Master Plan is being extended indefinitely by the Department of Neighborhoods. Master Plans are very costly to do or re-do. NSCC will need to review the Master Plan if anything outside of the current Master Plan is anticipated.

North has a new website:

Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 20, 2010.

Respectfully submitted,
