Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to the Laurelhurst Community Club meeting on Monday, March 14, 2016 at the Laurelhurst Community Center, 4554 NE 41st St. Katie Bang, Seattle Parks and Recreation project manager, is on the agenda at 7:30 p.m. Seattle Parks and Recreation would like to thank the Laurelhurst Community Club for partnering with us.
This project replaces the Laurelhurst drainage system installed in the early 1900s. The existing lines are in poor condition. The goal of the project is to improve drainage of the tennis court and bang board courts, to reduce flooding, and to reduce ongoing maintenance needs.
The southern tennis courts will be closed this spring for construction. The courts are scheduled to be open in time for Summer Tennis Camp in late June. Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with the contractor to minimize impacts to the neighborhood and park.
For more information about the project please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/park_detail.asp?ID=340 If you have additional questions about the project or would like to request accommodations or need an interpreter please contact Katie Bang at Katie.firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-684-9286.

Power outage that began this morning at 10 has been resolved for most customers in Burien, South Park and areas of south Seattle. A small area of Rainier Valley and New Holly remains out, affecting around 240 customers. Could be 5-6 hours to restore as crews have to bring in new equipment.
Cause of Burien outage was equipment failure triggered by a seagull in wires.
Laurelhurst remains out at about 163 customers affected. Crews will have to widen outage to make repairs.
