Spring Clean

This Sunday, April 7th from 1pm – 3pm

Meet in the Lake City Mini Park where we will provide gloves, grabbers, vests and bags. Our past Spring and Fall Clean Up efforts usually see about 65 people but we would love to double that this time out. Please do join us to give a little love and shine to the neighborhood. It is a great way to connect with neighbors and an easy way to feel good about volunteering. We will have some snacks and the chance to win some raffle prizes for those that sign in with us. See you there, rain or shine.

Sharps Training in Lake City

Education and a Chance to Ask City Staff About Needles in Our Neighborhood

February 21st – 6pm-7:30pm – Please RSVP to Chris.Leverson@chs-wa.org

The Training lasts about an hour with extra time for discussion.

Please consider joining us for a free sharps training and opportunity to discuss strategies around needles in our neighborhood. The problem with used needles on our streets continues to be a major issue and in advance of our regular neighborhood clean up schedule launching in April please consider joining us.

Prioritize Projects in Your Community

Your Voice Your Choice and Greenways Opportunities

Message for Lake City Greenway’s Janine Blaeloch:

“Just as we begin the Neighborhood Street Fund community prioritization process, the Dept. of Neighborhoods is also starting the annual Your Voice, Your Choice participatory budgeting program for street and park projects. This is the program in which Lake City/District 5 has had overwhelming participation, and some of our projects are now being built.

Please read on to see how you can participate in both these programs.

(1) Neighborhood Street Fund proposals were submitted back in November. D 5 has 57 proposals, of which 35 are in the greater Lake City area. These projects cost between $100K and $1 million.

We can all vote to prioritize NSF projects, either online or at one of two D 5 meetings happening this week and next:
PLEASE COME to a meeting or vote online!

Go here for information and voting

(2) Your Voice, Your Choice projects can be proposed by anyone living, working, or spending time in a Council district and may cost up to $90K.

Lake City Greenways will have an idea-collection gathering for YVYC on Monday, February 11, 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in the meeting room at our newly-more-fabulous Lake City Branch Library. We’ll brainstorm yet more ways to make our streets safer and green spaces better. These proposals are simple to fill out online or on paper, and we will have materials at hand to make it all easier.

This will be the first of LC Greenways’ newly-established quarterly meetings. We so hope to see you there!

Janine”
