Wallingford Politicos

Are you confused about which groups do what in Wallingford? You’re not alone. Thanks to our friends at Wallyhood Blog, we now have a handy little list of people in charge. Click on the links below to learn more about each, or check our BlogRoll to the right for more Wallingford links!

  • Wallingford Chamber of Commerce: Presided over by Kara Ceriello of Not A Number, the chamber represents the business interests.
  • Wallingford Community Council: One of the 23 community councils around the city, the WCC collects under the Lake District Council, which in turn collects under the Seattle City Council. Presided over by Mary Heim, it’s a quasi-governmental organization that deals primarily with land use and residential issues.
  • Wallingford Neighborhood Office: An off-shoot of neighborhood planning process of the 1990’s, this a civic organization that seeks to build community within Wallingford by fostering communication and sponsoring events such as the Seafair Kiddie Parade and the Garden Home Tour. Ably led by Janet Stillman.
  • Sustainable Wallingford: A hippie love fest of an organization (and we mean that in the kindest possible way), SW is “a group of neighbors and friends of Wallingford who meet every month to educate, participate, and celebrate.” They meet every second Saturday from 10 to noon at Mosaic Community Coffee House.

Thanks, Wallyhood!
