Beautiful Green Lake
The Green Lake neighborhood is a great place to work,
play, visit, and live. Green Lake businesses are thriving and popular
Green Lake restaurants serve delectable food that is lauded by food editors
and customers alike. Green Lake homes are in high demand. and Green Lake
Park is possibly the most popular park in the State of Washington.
Every day people from all parts of the city and county come to enjoy the
lake, the path, and the many activities available year-round. Our neighborhood
schools serve students from throughout the city and our library is one
of the busiest (indicating that it serves as a regional resource as much
as a neighborhood library) in the city. The old West Green Lake Beach
bathhouse now houses the Seattle Public Theater, an exciting resource
for quality entertainment and community participation.
Lake Community Council
The Green Lake Community Council (GLCC) is an organization
dedicated to making Green Lake an even a better place for those of us
who live here, who work here and who visit here, through our involvement,
advocacy, sharing, and caring. That is our vision. See About
Us for our mission statement and current activities.
With the overwhelming popularity of our lake, many people
are concerned about maintaining the beauty and viability of the lake for
future generations. The Friends of Green Lake, which started out as a
part of the Community Council, are addressing the issues of algae, wildlife
habitat, and growth of plants like milfoil. See the Friends
of Green Lake home page for for more information about the Friends
of Green Lake activities.

METRO/SOUND TRANSIT TEAM
UP IN LONG RANGE PLANNING OPEN HOUSES
King County Metro is beginning their second phase of outreach
on their Long-Range Plan and has teamed with Sound Transit
to host a series of Joint Open Houses to give residents an opportunity
to help shape the Metro Transit system of the future. They have also updated
with new information and created a new
online survey to collect input from the public.
Metro is asking the public to review projections about how communities
in King County will grow over the next 25 years and tell us what types
of transit service they think will get them where they want to go.
As Metro looks 25 years down the road to ensure we have the right mix
of transit services and connections, Sound Transit is shaping a ballot
measure for Sound Transit 3.
The final plan will be taken to the public for another round of input
in early 2016 and then transmitted to the King County Council in mid-2016.
June Open Houses:
Tues, June 16 5:30p.m.-7:30 p.m. Union Station, 401 S Jackson St.,
