Seattle’s Department of Transportation had a crew out on LCW in recent days working on the medians on Lake City’s main thoroughfare.
The crew cleaned out leaves and spread mulch on the tree strip in the LC commercial core.
“You don’t notice these trees until you notice them— leafing out in spring and turning bronze and burgundy in the fall,” said neighborhood resident Janine Blaeloch.
“They are lovely and they deserve care,” she wrote in an email thanking SDOT for working on the tree strip. Blaeloch is the leading force behind the Lake City Greenways project.
