Ballard District Council meeting tonight
After taking a little hiatus in the month of August (most people were likely too sun drunk or else traveling), the masterminds of Ballard will be pooling together and convening once again tonight, Wednesday, starting at 7 p.m. in the Ballard Branch Library.
The subjects are about as juicy as they come around these parts: land use, transit and rain gardens -- oh my!
Of course, you can expect to see the BNT's lovable reporter there. Here is a copy of the agenda:
