Neighbors Come Out on Beautiful Autumn Day to Shine Up Lake City
On Sunday, October 15th, LCFF wrapped up a great year of neighborhood Clean Up efforts starting back with our “Spring Clean” in April. About 60 participants came out to enjoy conversation, some tasty snacks and the feeling of doing something tangible for the Community.
It was amazing to see so many families and young people join the effort. Keep an eye out for the Clean Up’s to return in Spring!
A huge thank you to our Clean and Safe Committee Chairs, Annette from Kaffeeklatsch and Annie from Two Dog Yoga for all their hard work. Special thanks to Jonathan Neufeld at GLA, Nance Blase from East Lake City Collaborative, Chuck Dickey with Lake City Lions and LCFF Board Member Molly Burke from the LC Farmers Market for help with set up and staffing the locations. Big gratitude goes to Kaffeeklatsch and Elliott Bay Brewery for providing sandwiches, cookies and coffee for the participants.
Message from Council Member Juarez’s Office
We need your help
. There has been a new development in the City’s budget process that leads to potential negative implications for the Lake City Community Center rebuild.
The new budget chair, Councilmember Lisa Herbold, has signaled she may reallocate some of the Lake City Community Center’s funds to other projects. She is considering this reallocation because the Parks department has indicated they would not spend all of the funds in 2018. However, we know that any movement backwards threatens the future success of the project. We need the entire funding to remain in place. Please contact Councilmember Herbold to ensure the project receives the full $5M committed in the Mayor’s 2018 budget.
Councilmember Juarez will be discussing funding for the project at the Budget Committee meeting Friday afternoon. We want to show there is a united effort behind this project. Please start contacting Councilmember Herbold’s office at 3pm this Friday, 10/13 and through the weekend to let her know it’s imperative we maintain the full funding commitment of $5M in the Mayor’s budget for a new Lake City Community Center.
