Successful First Quarter Event with City Leaders
Build Lake City Together (BLCT) is dedicated to the continuation of Lake City Future First’s efforts to connect business owners, property owners and service providers through our business luncheon networking and information events. On April 12th we were fortunate to host Deputy Mayor David Mosley, North Precinct Captain Sano, Christopher Williams (Seattle Parks Deputy Director) and Dusty Olson (strategic Advisor at the Human Services Department). A huge thank you to Jack and Hellbent Brewing for hosting and to Lake City’s own Tubs Subs for helping to provide lunch. The group also heard from Cesar Garcia with the Lake City Collective who is working with BLCT to support low income businesses in Lake City in 2019.

There has been a lot happening this month with still more to come! We wrapped up our regular clean up schedule with the “Fall Clean” on Sunday, October 21st.
