Townsquared Launching in Lake City

Townsquared-300x289Townsquared is the free, private online network where verified neighborhood business owners and staff share advice and resources. (It works similar to Nextdoor, an online program for individuals in a neighborhood.)

We will be inviting each Chamber Member to join Townsquared. As part of the signup process, you, as a Chamber Member, will also become members of the neighborhood where your business resides. Non-Members are absolutely invited to participate.

Take the Fred Meyer Park Survey- Deadline extended to Feb. 26

Option-A-Plan-300x164
Where are we now?
The results of the 2015 community input process for the green space owned by the Fred Meyer Corporation on 130th and Lake City Way have been compiled, and the key design concepts identified. Integrated Site Design (ISD), a local design firm, was hired by LCFF to create design recommendations for the site based on the survey feedback.
ISD has provided two wonderful visions that truly demonstrate the potential of the space.

Mayor Speaks on Homelessness Live Tuesday Night

ed-murrayTonight, the Mayor will take a seldom used and extraordinary step of giving a live televised address to the people of Seattle on one of the most challenging issues facing the city: homelessness.   The Administration has worked tirelessly to address this multi-dimensional issue, while at the same time, homelessness also invokes strong emotional reactions coupled with very divergent views about how best to tackle the problem.  This evening, the Mayor will frame the challenges we face as a community, offer his thoughts on how we must proceed and provide a call-to-action for all of us.

The Mayor’s address will be live from Mary’s Place beginning at 7:30 p.m.  It will be aired on Seattle Channel (Channel 21 on Comcast & Wave) and streamed at: http://www.seattlechannel.org/live

8th Annual Union Bank Holidays at the Center was a Hit!

LAKE CITY COMMUNITY CENTER –  Neighbors gathered for cider, coffee and cookies…Guests were greeted by The Dickens Carolers…Pooky the Elf worked his magic for the little ones and the Ingraham High School Band played carols all evening.

Mayor Murray came by and counted down with Santa to light up the tree. What a fabulous night!
