Last updated: April 14, 2024

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 info@v-mcc.org

Transportation committee

The Transportation Committee has formed to study and recommend solutions to our Island's transportation needs.

We are looking for an Interim chair of the Transportation Committee

Post Office committee
 

The Post Office Committee was formed to study and recommend solutions to our Island's postal delivery crisis and long-term needs.

The committee is currently without a chair. So the committee won't meet again until someone expresses an interest in chairing the committee. The next meeting will be held as needed. Interested? send an e-mail to info@v-mcc.org

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 Terry Sullivan.     The committee meets every fourth Thursday, 6:30pm. To attend a meeting, send a request to info@v-mcc.org

Vashon Town Plan Committee

This committee is in the process of being formed. Here is the charter of the committee: 

The Vashon Town Plan of 1994 (VTP) was developed by the VMICC Town Plan Committee with assistance from King County and was adopted in 1996 as a subarea plan of the King County Comprehensive Plan.  Although the VTP has largely achieved its intent to reinforce Vashon’s traditional rural town character, as well as the 1986 Vashon Community Plan’s goal of maintaining the town’s rural character, the VTP has not been very successful in addressing the community’s desire to provide more affordable housing and to enable people to walk to work.

 

The purpose of the 2023-4 V-MCC Vashon Town Plan Committee is to work with King County to modify the VTP to enable more affordable housing while maintaining the town’s rural character.  These modifications are intended to be adopted as part of King County’s 2024 Comprehensive Plan Update.
