Notes from Recent Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) Monthly Meeting

This information was recently published in the Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) newsletter:

Some Notes from LCC’s February Meeting

LCC has been in touch with the UW regarding student and staff overflow parking in the Town of Yesler. The parking overflow was likely triggered in part by an increase in parking fees at the E1 Lot. Children’s employees now have to pay $28 per month to park in the CUH lot and some park in the Town of Yesler. Neighbors are exploring an RPZ.
LCC heard from neighbors about a “junky” RV parked on the side street near Flooring America. The vehicle previously had parked on Queen Anne and in Magnolia. Vehicles cannot remain parked on the street for more than 48 hours. 
Seattle Parks is working on an Off-Leash Dog Strategic Plan. Issues include: how and where to add more off-leash areas; how to pay for new off-leash areas and whether to allow advertising signage; whether to allow off-leash hours in every park; and whether fees should apply to those bringing more than two or three dogs (such as professional dog walkers). LCC is interested in neighborhood input. In the meantime, Animal Control has stepped up ticketing in Laurelhurst Park.   
Seattle Children’s has applied for a land use permit to remove two 15,000 gallon underground fuel tanks and install two 20,000 gallon fuel tanks in the abandoned helipad site east of the original location. The project includes removing the existing abandoned helipad and portion of the retaining wall, relocating a transformer vault, and landscaping.
