COUNCIL COMMITTEES

About

Committees

Last updated: January 21, 2023

V-MCC is a Washington organization dedicated to the community of Vashon-Maury Island. Volunteers are essential to keeping the organization running and healthy. There are multiple ways in which you can volunteer. One of the best is to join a committee. If you are interested in other ways to help, please contact Diane Emerson at dianeEmerson@yahoo.com

Affordable Housing committee

Affordable Housing continues to be a top issue of concern to the Island, for many reasons. It ties into the Post Office problems, homelessness, inability for organizations and businesses to hire and retain staff, and more. So the Council has an Affordable housing committee to work on these difficult issues, and their many facets. Please attend a meeting, and join if this issue is important to you, too.

The Chair of this important committee is Morgan Brown.  The meetings are usually held on the 2nd Monday of the month, between 7pm and 8:30 pm.  Please confirm with Morgan, and contact him to get a link to request attendance at a meeting or join the committee’s mailing list: morgan@wholewater.com
