On January 20, 2022 we held the Somerset Annual General Meeting at Forest Ridge School. It was a hybrid meeting, residents could attend either in person or online via Zoom.
A big Thank You to Forest Ridge for once again hosting the Somerset Community for the annual meeting at their wonderful facility.
Attendance was excellent: Over 80 households attended on Zoom and almost all socially distanced chairs were taken. Vaccinations and masks were required for in-person attendance.
It was packed agenda, with a Q&E with city staff added on short notice. A big Thank You to the city of Bellevue representatives for attending and answering questions from residents.
Looking ahead to 2022

There was a significant landslide event early Monday morning, January 17, 2022 that severely damaged a home in our neighborhood and forced a number of nearby residents to evacuate the area. All impacted residents are reported to be safe and physically unharmed. A water main break was involved but the root cause of the slide is still under investigation.
