The first “Neighborhood Connection” meeting, a policy initiative of Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell, is set for 6 p.m. Feb. 27 at Brigadoon Elementary.

Ferrell’s chief of staff Brian Wilson outlined the agenda during Tuesday’s Council meeting for the first meeting at Brigadoon.

“The agenda for the Brigadoon meeting will be first, a welcome/introduction of elected officials and staff that are present,” he said. “We’ll have a presentation on dispute resolution availability through the Federal Way Municipal Court and the liaisons and relationships the court has to assist in neighborhood dispute resolution.”

Wilson said Ferrell will share his “vision for the future” at the meeting, and that there will also be presentations from the city’s Public Works and Police departments.

Special to the Brigadoon meeting will be information on a number of homeowners associations present in Brigadoon’s surrounding neighborhoods. Finally, Wilson said, community members will have opportunities to ask city representatives questions and hear answers, and hopefully engage in a constructive dialogue.

Ferrell noted that it’s expected Council members will also be present for the meetings.

The meeting dates are as follows, with a start time of 6 p.m. for each:

• Thursday, April 24, Adelaide Elementary

• Thursday, June 12, Sherwood Forest Elementary

• Thursday, Aug. 28, Wildwood Elementary

• Thursday, Sept. 25, Mirror Lake Elementary

• Thursday, Nov. 6, Panther Lake Elementary
