Students Tour Lake City

UW and Nathan Hale Students Look to Lake City for Learning Opportunities

University of Washington students from the College of Built Environment joined locals, Mark Mendez, Mark Von Walter and Chris Leverson for a walking tour of the Lake City Neighborhood. Under the mentorship of UW’s Marty Curry, students will be taking a deeper dive into the Lake City neighborhood. Their work will include a “mental mapping” exercise and other observations about the  neighborhood. The following week, juniors from Mr. Mulder’s class at Nathan Hale joined us for a similar tour. The students are working on a project that includes a theatrical and historical component through an investigation of history and culture in Lake City. We look forward to sharing their respective projects here at as they develop.

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. Residents are not required to pay for or perform any maintenance. In fact, it is important for residents to stay out of the NDS areas so they maintain their function.
