Laurelhurst Community Club Collecting Dues And What The Funds Go Towards

The Laurelhurst Community Club is currently collecting annual dues which go towards supporting a variety of neighborhood projects and issues.

LCC invites neighbors to its monthly meeting on the second Monday of each month at 7pm at the Laurelhurst Community Center Fireside Room. 

This information was recently published in a recent LCC newsletter:
Dues Time And A Look Back on LCC’s Work in 2017
Neighbors recently received LCC’s 2018 membership brochure and dues statement in the mail. Your $65 dues payment supports proactive efforts on land-use matters, environmental and traffic issues, crime prevention, sidewalk safety, neighborhood improvements, community forums, earthquake/emergency preparedness, newsletters, email updates, website hosting, and more.  
An extra $20 contribution pays for landscape maintenance on the Mary Gates Way / NE 41st Street planted median. Additional contributions are always welcome to support special neighborhood projects.  
LCC appreciates your continued generosity and support. Pay dues on LCC’s secure website (preferred –, Clickand Pledge) or by mail to:
