Dog Wash Fundraiser Saturday For Special Books To Be Donated To Children's Hospital


Hawthorne Hills Veterinary Hospital (4020 NE 55th Street) is hosting its 7th annual dog wash fundraiser on Saturday from 1-3pm in the Hawthorne Hills Veterinary Hospital parking lot, to raise money to purchase books for Seattle Children's Hospital.

Nicole, with Hawthorne Hills Veterinary Hospital, told the Laurelhurst Blog Staff:
The dog wash is free. There is a suggested donation of $15 that goes towards purchasing Josh and Friends "I'll Be O.K" books that will be donated to Seattle Children's Hospital. Developed by a veterinarian, Josh and Friends is a well-established program that provides an easy to read children’s book to children facing surgery for the first time.  
The purchase of this book helps to support children and is part of the Children's Miracle Network, however we are not donating to that entity
It is a fun filled afternoon with dog washes, free refreshments and prizes. Bring by your furry family member to get cleaned up by our hospital staff. It will be a good way for them to socialize and cool down from this summer heat.

All About How Children's Hospital Patrols For Employees Parking In The Neighborhood



In October of 2015, Children's Hospital hired a full time parking enforcement officer, Tom Cheshire, who patrols the streets around the Hospital checking for employees violating Hospital policy to not park on neighborhood streets,. 

However that still doesn't deter some employees from parking in the neighborhood.

One neighbor commented to the Laurelhurst Blog:

I live near the hospital and I'm wondering about neighborhood residents and parking rights. Many hospital employees leave their vehicles each day on my one-side-parking-only street. Their shifts are long, and my street is crowded to begin with. One person regularly parks his truck and bike rack on my street for his twelve-hour work day. He then returns for his bike and leaves his truck overnight on my street to, most likely, bike home. He returns his bike to his truck the next morning, over 24 hours later, works another day, then leaves with his bike and truck in the late evening. I don't mean to be inhospitable, but parking on my street is already overwhelmed by residents. Is one allowed to leave his vehicle overnight in a neighborhood where he does not live? Can the City help at all here?


The Laurelhurst Blog followed up with Hospital Security who said the individual was not a Children’s employee, but an employee of a vendor that has a business affiliation with the hospital.  Hospital Security spoke with the vendor who followed up with the individual. 

From emails the Laurelhurst Blog has received,  it appears there are many areas in the neighborhood  that Hospital employees are regularly parking in - the corner of NE 45th Street and 45th Avenue NE, corner of NE 45th Street and 43rd Avenue NE, 41st Avenue NE, up and down NE 45th Street and several others locations.

Todd Johnston, Vice President, Facilities and Supply Chain, told the Laurelhurst Blog that the Hospital Parking Office looks for Children’s employees and contractors who don’t belong in the neighborhood and issues warnings.  The Hospital Security officer runs license plate numbers and tags vehicles, communicates with employees and supervisors, and "employs progressive discipline to improve compliance."
 
Todd added:
We visit the specific areas of concern multiple times daily and have stepped up our efforts as we continue to patrol them. 
We communicate frequently with employees and contractors, admonishing them not to park in any unauthorized area.  We follow up consistently and forcefully.  Our charge covers those vehicles that are tied to the Hospital in some way.   
While we don’t expect neighbors to call in cars, we appreciate the alerts and do follow up whenever a neighbor contacts us. 


Jim Sawyer, Children's Hospital Director of Security, told the Laurelhurst Blog Staff:
The Hospital takes its street parking restrictions very seriously.  Hospital Security actively tickets the streets seven days a week, and attempts to respond to all complaints within an hour. We respond to any and all Transportation requests for enforcement help of any kind.  This is a priority for our patrol and enforcement team. We patrol and ticket the streets regardless of whether we receive calls or not. If one of our neighbors calls we have and will give their concern priority response.    
Tom Cheshire is tasked with parking enforcement as a major portion of his work.   He works Monday through Friday.  Occasionally, his schedule is modified to capture various night and weekend patrols.  The Security department provides supplemental enforcement on nights and weekends as the caseload allows.
We have a systematic process in place to enforce parking which includes regular (but variable by time and day) patrols, database tools to look up and cross reference license plates and the ability to deliver citations remotely which allows us to scale enforcement.      
Whether the citation is delivered at the vehicle within 30 minutes or via email within hours it has a similar impact on the workforce member -  a citation.  An email citation is equal to or better than a paper citation – as it arrives to the parker faster than a paper citation and it often includes their supervisor.  And it supports the ability to scale the enforcement activity.
Workforce are required by hospital policy to register their vehicle and to keep this information up to date. The hospital also has access to the DOL database for looking up suspected vehicles out of compliance. If the name does not match a workforce member, we can also attempt to match the registered owner address to workforce members living at the same address.  If a vehicle isn't in the Hospital database, the vehicle can still be cross-referenced via the DOL database. 
There are no assigned  parking areas in the neighborhoods - all assigned areas are on hospital property or in one of our designated off site lots. 
We advise staff there is no cut off street distance-all street parking is unauthorized. By cut off distance we mean-if an employee were to ask “If I park a mile and a half away and walk in-is that ok”? If-when we field these questions we answer that "no -you need to park in your assigned area if you drive-there is no amnesty so to speak if you park a greater distance away". 
Human Resources takes street parking very seriously - it is a performance issue that will or can impact ones employment.  If an employee is a repeat offender it becomes a  serious performance issue which could result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.  Violations are tracked and treated as a performance issue.  On the second violation, the supervisor is notified and reinforces the policy with their employee.  If a third occurs, Human Resources and the staff member’s supervisor is also notified and it becomes a documented performance issue. Very few ever get to the third violation.
We have 3 to 4 security officers patrolling the streets off shift and on weekends and forwarding all their finds of street parkers to Tom-who follows up in a priority matter.  If Security observes staff on the street parking we will stop at the moment and question-advise them to move.
Running a plate and issuing a citation to our employee can be done remotely while the car is there for several hours, or even after the vehicle is gone.
On a daily basis, our enforcement staff rotate through a number of neighborhood patrol zones, in a randomized order to prevent predictability. When violators are identified it is not uncommon that they are found on streets most proximate to the hospital (45th & 40th) and 70th & Sand Point.   

Jamie Cheney , Hospital Transportation Department Director,  added:

A license plate number is the most accurate way to determine if the car belongs to an employee of Children’s.  Because the same enforcement staff has been doing this for over two years, he also knows certain vehicles by sight and make and model.   

For example, after running the license plate number several times on the same blue Mazda 3 that routinely shows up on 41st Ave NE (this is a fictional example) and finds that it is not a Children’s employee so there is no need to run the license plate anymore or physically go out to the car.  In other words, he knows many of the cars by memory and knows who is not an employee, or an employee that lives on the street.   We follow up on each request from the neighbors with this logic:

If it is not a known license plate number, it gets run. If it is an employee, then a citation is issue.  If it is not a known license plate number, it gets run.  If it is not a Children’s employee, then no action is taken.  If it is a known license plate number and a Children’s employee, then a citation is issued. If it is a known license plate number and not a Children’s employee, then a citation is not issued. 
The enforcement staff has standard rounds through the neighborhood.  If a suspected parking infraction is called in, enforcement staff  triage the issue based on current resources at the time and the urgency of the issue.   


Hospital  Security Services can be reached at 206-987-2030 or by email at parkingteam@seattlechildrens.org including details such as location, time, vehicle, etc), which goes to a team rather than just Tom, who may not be working that particular day.  Tom’s number is 206-987-2489.  Jim Sawyer can be reached at 206-987-6213.

Lengthy Boat And Boat Trailer Parking Not Allowed On City Streets

The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) posted this information in a recent newsletter

Ship to Shore: Boat Parking on the Street

Each spring and summer throughout the boating season, neighbors express concern or have questions about boats/trailers parked on residential streets and inquire what is allowable per City code.  
No vehicle wider than 80” can be parked legally on the street between midnight and 6am. If a boat/trailer is less than 80” wide, it can be parked on the street providing the trailer is hitched to a vehicle. The 72-hour rule applies – meaning that the boat and vehicle must be moved every 72-hours.   

City code states about boat parking:

No vehicle wider than 80” can be parked legally on the street between midnight and 6am. If a boat/trailer is less than 80” wide, it can be parked on the street providing the trailer is hitched to a vehicle. The 72-hour rule applies – meaning that the boat and vehicle must be moved every 72-hours.   
 
To report abandoned vehicles or a car that has been parked for more than 72 hours, please go here.

All About The Osprey And Their Nest At Union Bay



Here is a recent post from the Union Bay Watch Blog published by Larry Hubbell, long-time local photographer and birder. 

Here also is an in-depth article about Larry and his work.





Diamonds Are Optional
A lot can happen in a year. Chester and Lacey are now experienced Union Bay breeders. You can read about their unique, potentially first in a hundred years, experience in the post 'Something to Celebrate'. Since then they have separately completed their fall and spring migrations, covering thousands of miles. According to All About Birds osprey may fly as much as ten thousand miles per year. Chester and Lacey have returned to their Union Bay nest site and each other. Plus, Lacey started sitting on eggs around May 15th - just like last year. 

Currently, Lacey spends most of her time in the nest. Occasionally, she takes brief breaks. Sometimes, she flies figure eights around the nest to temporarily escape her maternal confinement. Last week, while Chester guarded the nest, Lacey flew over and snagged another dead branch to continue elevating the exterior of their avian nursery (see the photo above).

This photo was taken last year on July 10th. Given that Lacey began sitting at about the same time this year, we may be able to see the young in the nest sometime in the next week. According to All About Birds their incubation period is between 36 to 42 days. They are almost certainly beyond that time frame.

Most likely the young have already hatched and are simply not yet strong enough to hold their heads above the edge of the ever-rising nest. Clearly, the visibility bar is being raised this year. Notice the growth of the nest between this photo from last year and the current photos.

This year, Chester is once again consistently bringing food to the nest. This photo from last week, is an example of his hard work and willingness to put the family's well-being ahead of his own. He will often deliver food to the nest, then go back out and catch his own food before finally returning to sit nearby and eat.

This morning, Chester delivered a fish as usual. Lacey ate and possiby fed the young. The process was hidden to me. Finally, it appeared that Lacey covered the young to protect them from the early morning chill and seemed to settle in for some quiet time. 

During this time Chester had been watching from a nearby cottonwood tree. He often guards the nest from that elevated position. If Lacey sees a potential threat she will call out sharply and Chester will be the first to take to the air to defend the nest. 

While Lacey was resting quietly, Chester came to life and flew over to the nest. He landed, looked Lacey in the eye, and then picked up the remains of the fish and flew away to feed himself. In someways it was a rather brave maneuver because the female osprey can be as much twice as large as a male. They can also be rather possessive, especially of food intended for their young. Maybe it it is a sign that Lacey trusts Chester and his ability to deliver food. In any case, it is an osprey behavior I have never seen before.

An easy way to tell Lacey and Chester apart is by looking at their chests. Lacey has a dark 'necklace' which is scattered across her upper chest. Chester, in keeping with his name, has a chest of pure white

Chester and Lacey are particularly sensitive to any potential harassment from other predatory birds. Bald eagles, red-tailed hawks and even other osprey are consistently consider a threat.

This week, I watched Chester and Lacey escort a wandering and confused young eagle out of their airspace. I am sure the first-year eagle was much happier when it escaped their frantic attention and finally reached the Laurelhurst neighborhood.

Last October, I watched their daughter Kate chase off a red-tailed hawk, all by herself. Last summer I watched the parents drive off every eagle within eyesight and any other osprey which attempted to fly near the nest.

You can imagine my surprise when last week a third osprey came and landed in the nest. Even more astonishing was the lack of reaction from Chester and Lacey. They did not appear to be at all concerned. The only other osprey I have ever seen in their nest were their own young.

Can you see any differences between the bird above and Chester and Lacey? Personally, I think the neck on this third bird seems a bit more slender. Also, the thin delicate necklace is clearly different. It is much lighter than Lacey's necklace, while also unlike Chester's unmarked chest.

Here is a good view of Chester's chest, just prior to dropping off a delivery of sushi for Lacey's lunch.

The top of the third bird's head is also patterned differently than Chester or Lacey. Last year, Jim Kaiser, the osprey biologist who designed, built, and installed this nesting platform, told me about a study in Europe which demonstrated that osprey can be uniquely identified by the patterns on top of their heads. 

Chester and Lacey's mild-mannered acceptance of this third bird makes me think that it must be one of their offspring. The necklace implies the bird is most likely female. Last year, Chester and Lacey successfully raised three young. They had two males, which we called Wilbur and Orville, and a third sibling, their sister who we call Kate. In the prior year (2015), Chester and Lacey did not complete a nest and did not have any young. 

In Birds of North America (BNA) it says, 'Band returns (Henny and Van Velzen 1972, Poole and Agler 1987, Ewins and Houston 1992) and sightings of individuals on overwintering areas during the northern summer indicate first-year birds remain on overwintering grounds ca. 18 mo, only returning in their third calendar year. Osprey very rarely return to breeding grounds in the spring following their first migration south (AFP; M. McMillian, personal communication).'

All things considered, my best guess is that the third bird must be Kate. I can think of no other rational explanation for their combined behavior.

This photo was taken on October the 3rd, 2016 it shows a lonely Kate, all by herself. This photo was taken just prior to her migration south. She was the last of the five osprey to leave Union Bay. Possibly her hesitance to leave implies that she has a strong attachment to Union Bay. Maybe a special bond with her birthplace has brought her back. 

Some could argue that the pattern of Kate's coloring looks a bit different this year. I agree. My supposition is that she has completely replaced her juvenile plumage with slightly different patterns and colors. Frankly, I have no way to be positive whether the observed differences between the 2016 version of Kate and this year's third bird are consistent with normal osprey development.

There is however one thing of which I am fairly certain, whether our third bird is Kate or Not-Kate it seems only logical to conclude it is a member of Chester and Lacey's family. Most likely it has returned, in its first year, to the place of its birth (or hatching). If so, then it is, by the BNA definition, a rare bird behavior. 

Have a great day on Union Bay...where with luck you may see Kate in the sky - diamonds are optional!

Update:


Breaking news just in from Doug Parrott:

Hi Larry,

I was at the Fill this am (Sunday) and there are as least two chicks in the Osprey nest. Their timing is just about right on from last year. By the way another great post. Attached photo from today.

Best,
Doug

Going Native:

Without a well-funded Environmental Protection Agency, it falls to each of us to be ever more vigilant in protecting our local environments. Native plants and trees encourage the largest diversity of lifeforms because of their long intertwined history with local, native creatures. I have been told that even the microbes in the soil are native to each local landscape. My hope is that we can inspire ourselves, our neighbors and local businesses to plant native flora and to support native wildlife at every opportunity. My intention is to include at least one photo each week and visually challenge us to know the difference between native and non-native lifeforms. 





Garden Loosestrife

This yellow invader is currently blooming in the Union Bay Natural Area. It spreads not just via the flowers but more importantly and invasively via the root system. The folks at the UW Botanical Gardens are stuck between a rock and a hard place. They do not have enough resources to eradicate the weed manually and the only cost effective means of controlling the weed is therefore an herbicide.

Tonight Learn How To Prepare For An Earthquake At Special Meeting



The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) is holding a special meeting tonight from 7-8pm on Earthquake preparedness at 7pm at the Laurelhurst Community Center in the Fireside Room.

Carl Leon, a representative from the City's Office of Emergency Management, will present an "Expanded SNAP (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare) Earthquake Preparedness" class, outlining steps on how to prepare for disasters.

The City website says about the SNAP program:

It introduces participants to basic information on personal and family preparedness, including how to develop a disaster plan and an emergency supply kit. In addition, this presentation provides guidance and tools for organizing with neighbors. Participants will become familiar with neighborhood response priorities and strategies for working together with neighbors to ensure an effective neighborhood response.


Neighbor John Temple, has been working with LCC on earthquake preparedness and has started LEAP (Laurelhurst Earthquake Action Preparedness) for neighbors to learn how to prepare households in the case of a large earthquake, when it hits what to do, how to get help, how to help others and how to get the neighborhood ready

John said he is also happy to help with setting up an organized block system or improving one that may already in place.  He said that at the August city-wide block parties, those neighbors involved in coordinating could be a great help getting the neighborhood safer. 

He added that "working together can be fun, getting to know your neighbors better and all. Where to evacuate to if necessary could be important, too.  Neighbors help neighbors.  Once Laurelhurst is organized it will have less effort to maintain."

The information John sent out says:

If the big one comes, we are in trouble. We are not yet organized to be able to take the best care of individual households with their children, disabled people, older adults, pets and more. This can be done.  
It takes more than just having water, food and meds for yourself. We need people at the least to join their individual block groups and better set up within their own households so they are not a drag on the ones who are completely prepared and know their block captain.  
Consequences from a serious earthquake may include utility outages for prolonged periods, significantly delayed fire and police response, houses slipping off foundations, house fires, burst water pipes, broken gas lines, trapped and possibly seriously injured family members and neighbors.

Some authorities recommend that we prepare to live with only our own resources for as long as a month. It's a daunting challenge, but we can take steps now to be more prepared and comfortable if disaster strikes.  
The City has an extensive Emergency Management website listing resources and recommended steps to take to prepare for emergencies.

I have taken on the task to help all of us get organized. If you get contacted by a neighbor to join a group of about 20 blocks, work with them. If you don't have the time or inkling to participate further just get true info and give info so you can be helped.  
Simple things like giving people that are volunteering your info. Things like what are your pet's names, do you have older or disabled people in your house, phones to call you, as a participant that registers you will get a sign to post that you need HELP or are OKAY in your house.  
Volunteers will be coming by to check for registered people with a yellow sign and help if you need it, knowing who is in your house is paramount if your house happens to be one of the one that collapses. People who are registered and doing minimal efforts to organize within their block will be most quickly helped because of known circumstances within.  
Remember there could be no water, no sewer, no electricity, no police or fire services, no cellphone, no internet, and many more issues.   
Learn how to prepare, how to be safe, how to use the Help/OK sign, and know the top three response priorities after any disaster.

Support your neighborhood response team, LEAP. Sign up to be a block captain and/or provide vital information to allow LEAP to better support you and family and pets.    
Your Laurelhurst Community needs you to be prepared and understand how to get help. We want your families to be safe and ready to help others. Let's hope it never happens, but let's all be prepared if it does

June Laurelhurst Real Estate Report


Kim Dales has provided this neighborhood real estate activity monthly report:







June was an interesting month in Laurelhurst as pending and sold were very similar to the neighborhood market in May, but the number of new listings was only two for last month and just nine for May. It's hard to know why there was such a significant decrease.

Regarding the 2 active listings:

  • 4815 NE 44th Street went Pending in 7 days, which implies that the sales price will probably be at asking or higher.
  • 3810 46th Ave NE: sold barely 1 year ago (3/23/16) for $1,268,000. It doesn't appear that any remodeling has occurred to substantiate a price increase of approximately 19%.

Regarding the sold homes: 
  • only 3 sold for over their list price
  • 1 sold at list
  • 4 sold under their original listing prices
Of the two active homes on the market in June,  only one remained by the end of the month.
As homes are listed over the $1,800,000 threshold, buyers become a bit more particular regarding level of upgrades, finishes, location, and outdoor living spaces.
  
And currently on the market (pictured above) is a home at  4545 55th Ave NE, which had a recent price reduction to $1,976,800.  It is a very large 5 bedroom house with gorgeous lake, Mt Rainier views, plus the added bonus of an active eagles nest to watch through the telescope. It has been beautifully remodeled with a rooftop deck.  
Potential sellers ask me frequently " what is the best month to sell my home". Historically, I think we all feel that the spring is the best time as flowers are starting to bloom and the grass is green, making photographs pop with color, although it does get dark much later and the weather is generally not as predictable. I think the "spring is the best time" view should be thrown out the window. Based on our statistics and the number of new buyers flooding the market, if you home is priced, and marketed correctly your home will sell irregardless of what month you are listing it in.  Here is an article describing the current market environment in Seattle.
