Update on Lake City Project
Work on the sidewalk and natural drainage project between NE 130th St and NE 137th St is nearly complete! Crews are putting on the finishing landscape touches and plan to complete punch list items over the next week or two. Now that the project is nearing the end, we’d like to remind you of ongoing maintenance.
Who is responsible for maintaining the natural drainage systems (NDS)?
Seattle Public Utilities is responsible for the watering, weeding and general upkeep of the natural drainage systems to ensure proper function.

Successful First Quarter Event with City Leaders
Build Lake City Together (BLCT) is dedicated to the continuation of Lake City Future First’s efforts to connect business owners, property owners and service providers through our business luncheon networking and information events. On April 12th we were fortunate to host Deputy Mayor David Mosley, North Precinct Captain Sano, Christopher Williams (Seattle Parks Deputy Director) and Dusty Olson (strategic Advisor at the Human Services Department). A huge thank you to Jack and Hellbent Brewing for hosting and to Lake City’s own Tubs Subs for helping to provide lunch. The group also heard from Cesar Garcia with the Lake City Collective who is working with BLCT to support low income businesses in Lake City in 2019.
If you are a business owner or property owner in Lake City and would like to get involved, learn more about Build Lake City Together or find ways to connect to your business neighbors please email Chris.Leverson@CHS-WA.org.
