Call to Action: ALUV Community Center Feasibility Funds

We wrote about the need for an Aurora-Licton Urban Village community center earlier this year. Now, we could use your help in letting the city council know about the need for funding for a feasibility study in the 2020 budget. The Licton Springs Community Council voted in support of this initiative.

You can find a sample letter from ALUV here.

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! You can reach the city council at [email protected]

Also, if you are available, please attend and voice support at the Budget Hearing on Tuesday, October 22nd starting at 5:30 pm at City Hall (600 4th Ave). Sign-in begins at 3:00.

Make a Licton Springs Community Center a Reality!

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:

  1. Playground
  2. Library
  3. Pool
  4. Large gathering space
  5. Sport Court
  6. Childcare
  7. Senior Activities
  8. After school programs
  9. Fitness classes
  10. Meeting Rooms

Community Center Survey Results

Below you can see a 2 minute video of our neighbors discussing why they want a community center:

We recieved the below request for volunteers from the Friends of Robert Eagle Staff Middle School PTSA to help beautify the school grounds at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School.

"Please join Eagle Staff MS parents and community members to help pull weeds at Eagle Staff, specifically starting in/around the parking lot areas. Once finished out front, we will move to the west & back sides of the school. Compost bags, gloves, tools, ice cold beverages will be provided. If you prefer, you are welcome to BYO gloves, weeding tools, hat and a water bottle. Many hands make light work and this effort to care for our school grounds will instill pride for students, staff and families at your school, model environmental stewardship and ensures we are a good neighbor in our community. It will be great to see what we can accomplish together!!!"
