Lake City Community Conversation Recap

On Wednesday, January 27, Mayor Murray and Councilmember Juarez joined community members, service providers, and City staff in a community conversation hosted by Lake City Future First (LCFF). More than 100 people participated in the lively event at the Lake City Community Center. Office of Planning and Community Development staff presented information about proposed rezones along Lake City Way and a draft festival street concept plan for 28th Ave NE next to the library and community center.

City staff are excited to continue working with LCFF, which is funded in part through an Only in Seattle Grant. In the coming year, we also look forward to strengthening partnerships with other great organizations. Some that also helped sponsor the event include the North Seattle Family Center, the Hunger Intervention Program, the North Helpline, Literacy Source, Mary’s Place, God’s Lil’ Acre, the North Seattle Chamber of Commerce, Neighborcare Health, and the Youth Tutoring Program.

Look for more information about those proposed changes next month on our Lake City Urban Design website. You can also contact:
