Information from SDOT on LCW Work

Just South of 125th & LCW – Bus Stop Extension

Click Here for Construction Notice

The below message is information from Paul Elliott with SDOT Community Relations on May 2, 2018:

 “I’m sorry to hear that we’ve got people concerned about a permanent loss of valued on-street parking on Lake City Way.  The “no parking” a-frames that have appeared are indeed for construction. 

Our contractor is going to be nearly doubling the length of the southbound bus stop on Lake City Way, just south of NE 125th St.  Currently, the zone is 65-feet long and can only serve one bus at a time.  When there are two coaches that approach the zone, one bus must wait on the north side of the intersection, delaying bus patrons, while also causing traffic backups on both southbound Lake City Way and eastbound NE 125th St. Continue reading “Information from SDOT on LCW Work”

City-Wide Emergency Communication Hub Field Exercise

Message from your Lake City Emergency Hub Team:

Lake City  Hub, Fred Meyer south parking lot, 13000 Lake City Way NE

Please join the Lake City Hub Team at the 2018 City-Wide Emergency Communication Hub Field Exercise this coming Saturday, April 28, 9-11:30 am at Lake City Fred Meyer in the SE corner of the lower parking. This exercise is a total failure of the Western WA power grid—cause unknown and resolution time not estimated.

We really need you to volunteer as a Hub Team member or to act out brief scripts of people (1) having information to share (for example, The ABC Store on Lake City Way is offering generator power to people needing to charge medical equipment); (2) needing something (for example, What pharmacies are open to fill my Dad’s insulin prescription?), and/or (3) offering a resource (for example, I can stay to help with Japanese interpretation). Those scripts will help us practice meeting local needs and matching them with local resources. Or simply stop by to learn about the Hub and some strategies for emergency preparedness—how-to build an emergency kit, how-to access and purify water, how-to manage sanitation, and how (and when) to control utilities.

The Lake City Collective (LCC) has formed to create a unified voice among the mosaic of cultures in the Lake City neighborhood to increase capacity and political agency among communities of color, immigrants and refugees. The group is working to build bridges across the diverse Lake City Community to begin to build consensus on and advocate for shared needs and goals in the many public and nonprofit planning processes that are actively seeking their input.

Community leaders Peggy Hernandez, Cesar Garcia and Tsegay Berhe, established the Lake City Collective to build the capacity of marginalized populations to address issues like economic development, affordable housing, displacement, early learning, across the ages programing, and all aspects of livability in our Community.
