A Vision For Lake City (Seattle.gov)
On Wednesday, February 10th, Mayor Ed Murray, Diane Sugimura, Interim Director of the new Office of Community Planning and Development (OCPD), CM Debora Juarez and a number of City Department heads met at the 33rd Ave NE Park site to discuss planned improvements to the Lake City area. The mayor announced that Lake City is the first neighborhood to have all of our planning efforts coordinated in the new OCPD and that 80 units of Workforce Housing will be built at the old FS 39 with the ground floor to be rebuilt as pre-K classroom space. In addition to these low income housing units, sidewalks will finally be added to a number of important pedestrian / safe routes to school corridors as well as improved transportation to the Meadowbrook Community Center.

Also in attendance: Chris Leverson (LCFF Director), Mariela Fletcher (LCFF and small business owner of Manila Manila), Janine Blaeloch (LC Greenways), and Sandy Motzer (LCNA) and a number of other community residents/advocates.
