Build Lake City Together Launches Membership for Lake City Businesses
Until September 1, 2020 BLCT is offering free membership to Lake City Businesses in our work to formalize a new “Build Lake City Together Business Association”
If you are a business in Lake City you can contact Chris at Chris.Leverson@CHS-WA.org for the simple membership acknowledgement form.
Why are we launching the BLCT Business Association? –
It has never been more important to be supporting our small businesses than right now. While we have been working to support and connect with businesses, we feel we have reached a level of capacity to be more effective. We currently have staff, a physical location (12545 Lake City Way NE) and some funding in place to support your business and connect you more deeply with your community. A more formalized business group will better be able to advocate around common goals and address issues that you are experiencing as a Lake City business owner.
What is included in membership?
- You will get a free listing in our new “Online Marketplace” launching later this summer (more on that soon!)
- You will receive regular updates from BLCT on issues in the neighborhood
- You will receive our Enjoy Lake City window cling for your business to display your participation and demonstrate solidarity with your business neighbors
- We will be a resource for you on your unique issues as we can connect you to information and help to interface with City departments
- We will help to promote your business and provide opportunities to participate in local events
- We can help connect you with artists participating in the Lake City Mural Project to enhance a wall (indoor or outdoor)
- You will be invited to participate in networking events and other meetings to strengthen relationships
- You will have an advocate to the City’s elected officials and City departments
- Help with obtaining masks, sanitizer and signage during the COVID-19 crisis
- We will gladly post updates and special offers you want people to know about as well as help distribute coupons
The time is now to work together and support each other during our shared crisis. As we look to the time when we emerge from the shadow of the pandemic, we will have a structure in place to continue to support each other as we work toward recovery.
Thank you for doing business in Lake City,
