For the last month work has been going on behind the scenes to refresh the Licton Springs Community Council Website,
and I'm excited to say this new site is ready to be unveiled! You can now visit the brand new website at lictonsprings.org.
The community council has been the force behind improving Licton Springs and giving everyone in the community a voice for more than two decades.
This new website is part of a broader push to introduce the council to a whole new generation so that their great work can include a
broader audience and have even more impact.
We have also added in our menu a permanent link directly to the community council and from the community council's website a permanent link to the blog.
As part of this partnership lovelicton.com will continue to be the place to go to get a pulse on the community and read about the positive changes going on
and lictonsprings.org will be the place to join your neighbors and make more of those positive changes happen.
As a reminder: the Licton Springs Community Council will have a booth at the Live in D5! event that is happening today 1-4PM at Hubbart Homestead Park.
It's a great opportunity to get introduced to the council as well as many other nearby community groups - while enjoying:
3 local bands
Free salmon and fry bread sponsored by the United Indians of All Tribes
It's time to VOTE for your favorite park and street improvements!
Voting for the 2018 Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks and Streets is now live and a proposal for improvements at Licton Springs Park (project 18-5001) is listed as one of the options for District 5!
As part of the proposal, Seattle Parks and Recreation will repair the trails and bridges to make it easier for all people to move through Licton Springs Park and enjoy that natural area that is so close to where an increasing number of people are moving.

It's officially spring time and with the warmer weather brings sunshine and blooming flowers. Did you know that Licton Springs has a community p-patch at College Way & North 92nd St?
What is a P-Patch?
P-Patch is the name given to community gardens that are managed by the Seattle P-Patch Community Gardening Program. The P-Patch program oversees 88 P-Patches over 32 acres throughout the city. Though a P-Patch, neighbors can come together to plan, plant, and grow community.
What is the history of Licton Spring's P-Patch?
The Licton Springs P-Patch dates back to 1976 as a student-driven initiative at North Seattle College. While the original community garden ended up as a school parking lot, in 2013 the North Seattle College Sustainability Committee revived the initiative. After over a year of hard work from the community digging up land, building plots, and adding compost, a community garden of 67 plots and 15,000 sq ft was developed in Licton Springs!
How can I get involved?
For information about volunteering, events, and general p-patch activities, email [email protected] or visit the community website at www.lictonspringsppatch.wixsite.com/seattle. The next community work party will be on Sunday, 4/15 from 11am to 1pm at the garden. The next leadership meeting will be on the first Wednesday of May (5/2) at 6pm at the OCEE building room 229 on North Seattle College campus.
