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 + A Look at LCC’s Stewardship

Neighbors recently received LCC’s 2019 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, 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. Your neighbors on LCC’s all-volunteer Board of Trustees contribute hundreds of hours each year on your behalf to maintain the livability and vitality of our community and stretch the membership dues.  
Highlights of LCC’s 2018-19 goals and accomplishments: 

  • LCC advocates for a context-sensitive solution for development on the  17+ acre Talaris site. LCC dues pay for legal counsel and expert consultants on historic preservation as well as on hydrology and soils.
  • LCC representatives attend the Seattle Landmark Board deliberations and its Architectural Review Committee meetings in reference to Talaris and other local landmark preservation issues. 
  • LCC works with SPD on public safety and increasing coverage. 
  • LCC works closely with the LEAP (Laurelhurst Earthquake Action Preparedness) team and supports its efforts. In 2018, LEAP secured funding and began preparations for the neighborhood HUB. LEAP helps create and organize local clusters for emergency response and participated in UW’s resilience research project for local communities. 
  • LCC works with the UW, Sound Transit, and Metro to improve the  neighborhood’s needs for transit connections and pedestrian safety. n  LCC funds maintenance for public median strips along NE 41st Street and replaces dead plants and maintains the irrigation system. 
  • LCC advocates for more City of Seattle budget support to restore Laurelhurst Community Center operating hours and programs. 
  • LCC works with City Council as it develops a new tree ordinance to provide improved urban habitat and enhance its tree canopy. 
  • LCC is working with the car share providers to create more access at the Montlake Light Rail station. 
  • LCC participates in SR520 construction and design meetings to ensure continuous access from the northern approach to the Montlake Interchange.
