The need for a neighborhood community center has received a lot of attention during this election cycle. All of the major candidates running for the District 5 council seat have gone on record in support. The momentum is building, and your voice could help make the community center a reality.
At the recent Celebrate North Seattle event at Oaktree plaza, ALUV (Aurora-Licton Springs Urban Village) asked over 120 people what was most important to them about having a community center. The top 10 answers were:
- Large gathering space
- Sport Court
- Senior Activities
- After school programs
- Fitness classes
- Meeting Rooms
Below you can see a 2 minute video of our neighbors discussing why they want a community center:
If you support the idea of a neighborhood community center, reach out to your elected representatives, and those running to represent you, and let them know!
