Shoreline Restoration Project Update
The shoreline restoration project remains a top priority for the Board. For the best possible outcome, we need to continue to maintain strong relationships with the many stakeholders involved.
Last year we all made a significant investment in this project. Thank you! This up-front investment is vital for the Club to have the leverage we need through the permitting process. We have retained both consulting and legal experts with the experience we need to help ensure our applications and processes are thorough and correct.
This is a marathon, not a sprint. Our permitting processes are ongoing. As an example, some public records we requested six months ago have just arrived. We don't believe any agency is acting with intentional malice; this is just the way government operates.
As summer approaches we are all looking forward to using the Club. The lake levels will still seem low around the boat ramp, beach and dock areas. Launching will become more difficult as the summer progresses. But, the grounds remain beautiful, our neighbors will be there and fun events are in the works!
We will continue with updates as they become available.
The LPPCC Board
On August 22nd, 1924, The Civic Club of Lake Forest Park was incorporated for the purposes of “First, to cultivate a more friendly feeling and a better understanding among the residents of Lake Forest Park and vicinity. Second, to develop a community spirit and promote the welfare and betterment of the people of this vicinity. Third, to acquire and hold property, to construct buildings to house its meetings and other community purposes and do such other acts as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this organization.”
As a Board we serve the community by maintaining grounds and facilities for members to use while enjoying time on the shores of Lake Washington. The Clubhouse is available to rent to both members and non-members.
The Club is a Social Welfare Organization in the state of Washington. Our EIN is 91-0833123 and we are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)4 organization.
Each member of the Board of Directors serves a two-year term. The Board meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm in the Clubhouse. Members are invited and encouraged to attend meetings.
