A community meeting on ‘Understanding the Mental Health & Drug Crisis’ will be held on Thursday, Jan. 9, with special guests Washington State Rep. Tina Orwall, Sherri Healey of SeaDruNar and sponsor Rapid Relief Team.

This free and open meeting will be held at the Normandy Park Rec. Center Community Room, from 7 – 8:30 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting: Neighbors are concerned about:

  1. The increasing rate of homelessness, crimes, and drugs in our community and neighboring cities.
  2. The decreasing sense in safely/regulations.
  3. More lawless individuals not being held accountable.
  4. Wanting to encourage our local leaders to take action.

“We are seeking to educate and inform ourselves, and then help create a plan of action of where our efforts could be best utilized to help create the safe community we want to see.”

A free boxed meal will be available to all attendees that evening, provided by sponsor Rapid Relief Team.

Organized by area resident Melissa Petrini (who organized the Nov. 14 Dan Satterberg meeting), it’s part of a new group she’s putting together that includes over 50 local businesses and area residents called ‘Highline Good Neighbors.’
