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.

DISTRICT 6 CITY COUNCIL
CANDIDATES FORUM AT PNA CENTER JUNE 6, 2015
Now is the time! City Council is currently transitioning to District
Phinney Ridge Community Council will present a Candidates Forum
for our new District 6 on Sat. June 6, 2-4 PM at the Phinney Neighborhood
Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N., Lower Brick Building. The three contenders
for the District 6 City Council seat will answer questions ranging from
land use and transportation to affordable housing and public safety.
“The move to district elections represents one of the biggest political
changes in Seattle in years,” says Ted Inkley, a board member with the
Phinney Ridge Community Council, which is sponsoring the forum. “It’s
important that District residents learn the views of candidates, and equally
important that the candidates hear residents’ concerns, especially critical
given the important decisions facing City Hall during this time of rapid
growth and change in Seattle.”
Incumbent Councilmember Mike O’Brien and challengers Catherine Weatbrook
and Jon Lisbin will answer questions formulated with input from community
organizations from around the district. Audience members will also have
the opportunity to submit questions. Click here for a printable
flier on the Candidates Forum that can be distributed.
