We Are Lake Hills

A Welcome from our President

Lake Hills Neighbors:

Welcome to the brand new Lake Hills Neighborhood Association website! We will be bringing you current information on what’s happening in Lake Hills, from our upcoming events and meeting topics, to general news about the area. To do so, we’ll need your help. As you hear about events and news items that affect us in Lake Hills, please let us know.  Our communications committee will make sure your information hits the public, where we can react to it, attend events, or just increase our knowledge about our neighborhood. As we progress as an association, we’ll be adding in other ways to communicate, including linking to a Facebook page, where you can post your comments and opinions.

Currently we have an opening for a Membership Committee Chairperson, so if you’d like to be involved in the association, please let us know.  We also need members for our Communications Committee and our Membership Committee.  We could use liaisons for each of the schools in Lake Hills, as well, so that we can get timely reports about activities there.

Our next event is our First Annual Lake Hills Neighborhood Picnic, at Evergreen Park! Put July 19th, Saturday, from 11:00 to 3:00 on your calendar. There will be food and fun for everyone, and if you bring a donation of food for Hopelink, you’ll be entered for a drawing. Prizes include two sets of Mariner’s tickets (9/14, Mariners vs the Oakland Athletics, 1:00 pm) and 10 free carwashes at Brown Bear! Hot dogs and drinks will be served, and you can bring your favorite salad or dessert to share.  Evergreen Park is at 15655 Lake Hills Blvd, Bellevue.

We’re looking for donations from Lake Hills businesses to support our picnic, and our future events. If you donate, you’ll be rewarded with a place in our list of sponsors, on this site. What a great way to advertise your Lake Hills business to your Lake Hills neighbors!

Watch this site for more information about the picnic, and about future Lake Hills Neighborhood Association events and meetings. We’re so glad to have you join us, in your interest in Lake Hills!

Neighborhood meeting review

A lively discussion concerning code compliance and neighbor disputes took place during the LHNA 5/16/14 meeting at Samena. Speakers Tom Campbell, Code Compliance Supervisor, and Andrew Kidde, Mediation Program Manager, shared common home/property code violation complaints, and various methods the city incorporates to find a workable solution. Residents were encouraged to report suspected code violations – nothing happens until somebody speaks up!

More details and contact information can be found on the City website at http://www.ci.bellevue.wa.us/code_compliance_complaint.htm

See you next time!

Hello Neighbors!

This was us, back in 1962. An island of new housing in the middle of a forest. Today, we’re right at the heart of a bustling Eastside. We’re Bellevue’s largest resident’s association. Our unique community council gives us our own say in Lake Hills plannng issues. We’re the best bit of Bellevue’s Lake to Lake trail system. Our mid century modern houses are of surprising historical significance and our parks and schools are second to none.

We are Lake Hills.

And now we have our own website!

Planning Commission review

A packed to capacity Lake Hills clubhouse entertained an ‘on the road’ planning commission meeting this week. Many residents testified to the commission on the issues we’ve seen in Spiritwood with individual room rentals in single family neighborhoods, and the planning commission got plenty of feedback prior to drafting up modifications to the City code designed to deal with the issues. Stay tuned for more updates.

Comprehensive Plan Update

The City’s Updated Comprehensive Plan is currently available for review by the public in draft mode.  The City will be seeking residents’ comments during the next couple of weeks.  The plan represents countless hours of effort by city staff and various boards and commissions guided by the vision of the City Council.  Many Bellevue residents made public comments at the City Council and various Boards and Commissions meetings over more than the last year.

The city will communicate the plan in the following ways:

A notice in the Seattle Times
E-mail alerts to anyone who has signed up for them through the City’s website
An open house at City Hall on February 25th
An open house at Interlake High School on February 26th
An online open house on the City’s web site which began February 13th
An article in the Bellevue Reporter on Friday 13th
A planned press release

Comments can be made from February 13th through March 3rd.

The neighborhoods, community stewardship and mobility sections will be of particular significance to Lake Hills residents.
