Learn more about Build Lake City Together:

“Children’s Home Society of Washington, Lake City Future First and Lake City Neighborhood Alliance began a community-focused partnership in summer 2016 to create a strategy that helps improve the quality of life for children and families in Seattle’s Lake City.

From this strong collaboration and support by the Wells Fargo Foundation, a comprehensive, resident-driven neighborhood plan was launched in 2018 called Build Lake City Together. The revitalization plan covers community needs ranging from affordable housing, social services, green spaces, economic development and social cohesion.”

September 10th: Meadowbrook Community Council Neighborhood Meeting

Please plan to attend our Community Meeting Tuesday evening – we have a full agenda.

Meadowbrook Community Center
10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125
September 10th, 2019
7-8:30 PM

For our meeting we have a variety of speakers, presentations, updates, and local news.

  • Seattle City Councilmember candidate Ann Davidson Sattler will join us to talk about why she is running for election and how she envisions engaging the NE community.
  • SDOT representatives will discuss The Thornton Creek Bridges project, which is a plan and schedule for replacement with upgraded bridges on Thornton Creek at Ne 110th, 39th Ave Ne, Ne 105th and Ne 95th.  Click here for more information about this project.
  • We will also celebrate the 99% completion of sidewalk and street drainage issues that have dogged pedestrians and vehicles on NE 110th between 35th Ave NE and Sand Point Way.
  • The Sidewalk Committee will also provide an update on the Your Voice, Your Choice project at the intersections of Ne 105th, 104th Place and 45th Ave Ne. This was awarded to us in 2018 for completion in 2019; however, once the project design was sketched out on site, there was sufficient opposition from neighbors in the immediate area for SDOT to “go back to the drawing board.” A new plan is under development.
  • Status of our neighborhood emergency HUB and proposed associated neighborhood “clusters” will be discussed, as will updates on the Meadowbrook Community garden and other topics of interest.
  • Updates on standing committees and activity in our area 

We need everyone’s voice! Please do come to our September 10th meeting and let’s see what we can do now and going forward!

Closure on the Burke-Gilman Trail May 6

Trail closed between 42nd Pl NE and 40th Ave NE

A contractor working with King County Parks will be removing six hazardous trees leaning  out along the trail. The project is expected to take one full day to complete and will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 6, 2019 and be complete by 7 p.m.

Trail users may opt to use Riviera Place NE as a bypass for the duration of the closure. We ask that all trail users please obey all posted trail closure signs as the trail is narrow and the edge drops off quickly around the work site.

BGT tree removal area

Please call 206-477-4527 or email parksinfo@kingcounty.gov with any questions or concerns.
