EGAD! We've been Grinched



After this was spotted on the ALSC Headquarters Ring (r) camera, we knew something was up. As a result of many investigations, we discovered the Grinch had changed the Santa Cruise contact phone number listed on the Blog!!!  

We now have the proper number displayed as (206) 387-3960. 

There is still time to reserve a stop by December 4th !

Get Your Green On, again!

“Get Your Green On” returns to the Angle Lake Park Nature Trail and is a great way to ensure the park environment remains healthy and safe!  

From 9 am to 12:00 pm
Meet at Angle Lake Park Boat Ramp

Two years ago, Shore Club Members with Port of Seattle and Green SeaTac Partnership volunteers planted 200 native plants at the Angle Lake Park Nature Trail. The event planned for Dec. 4 is to perform maintenance to ensure the new plantings from 2019 can continue to thrive. Volunteers are needed for this event to help remove invasive plant species and spread woodchips. 

In addition to the group collectively working to ensure the environmental health of the park, event leaders will share information about ‘going green’ at home. Environmentalists will offer tips on using natural lawn and garden care to help reduce dependence on consumer agricultural chemicals, recycle more, and safely dispose of household items to help ensure the high-quality lake health is maintained.

If you are interested in volunteering or if you have questions about Going Green at Home, please call the city’s Public Works Coordinator, Mason Giem, at 206-973-4763 or email at

Please consider the following: regular and repeated volunteer maintenance of the nature trail park helps to ensure environmental health by removing unwelcome invasive plants. Frequent group activity also helps prevent unwanted activity from taking root in this area, ensuring this park remains safe for family use. Please consider spending at least an hour or more with us to demonstrate you care! 

Act Now to Request a Visit from Santa!


Ask a grown-up to contact Kerry Steinke by Saturday, December 4th, to request a stop at your dock!

Santa plans to return to Angle Lake on Saturday, December 11th, from  5:00 until 8:00 pm. He's looking forward to this particular time to visit with the children, presenting them with a small gift bag to help hold them over until Christmas Day.

If you'd like to secure a stop at your dock, don't hesitate to get in touch with Kerry Steinke by telephone at (206)387-3960 or by sending an email to  Include the number of children expected, and if you prefer an early or late stop, we'll confirm if we can accommodate your request.  If you don't live along the waterfront or have a dock, please indicate this as well, and we'll pair you up with someone who does.

South 200th Street Corridor Survey Closes Nov 30th

If you use South 200th Street to get around then this post applies to you!

The City of SeaTac is conducting a South 200th Street Corridor Study. During the first round of community interviews the following issues were identified:

  • Folks have a difficult time turning left off South 200th Street onto side streets or into residential driveways.
  • Lack of adequate space for pedestrians and bicyclists – narrow sidewalks and lack of bike lanes.
  • Lack of safe ways along the corridor to access transit (both light rail and buses).
  • Lack of vehicle and pedestrian lighting.
  • Concerns about how any changes to the corridor will affect congestion.
  • Concern about how changes can be made with existing ROW constraints
  • Speed and noise of traffic is a concern for residents along this route

In addition to the concerns above, this area will see additional change due to completion of the upcoming SR 509 extension and Federal Way Link Light Rail Extension. 

The purpose of this study is to ensure that South 200th Street meets the needs of all users (whether you walk, bike or drive) now and into the future. The study highlights some options to improve South 200th Street from Angle Lake Light Rail Station to the I-5 ramps. The options under consideration are intended to increase multi-modal travel and improve safety within this major arterial.

You can share your opinion on the different corridor options online at: —with the site letting you rank options in order of your preference. The survey closes on Nov. 30.

The answers collected will be compiled and used to determine corridor option preference recommendation along with traffic modeling, safety and other analysis. If you have questions about the possible corridor improvements and options or the survey itself please contact Project Manager David Tomporowski at
