Join us at our December Meeting

Come spend time with neighbors in-person at the Lettered Streets Neighborhood Association (LSNA) meeting December 14. We’ll catch up on LSNA activities and hear about projects happening in the Lettered Streets.

We’ll meet at ROAM, Wander Brewing’s new coffee and beer house in the neighborhood – an opportunity to try out their locally roasted organic coffee, Wander Brewing beer, local craft cider, Washington wine, pastries, and light eats.

  • When? Wednesday, December 14, 6:30-8:30pm
  • Who? All who live and work in the Lettered Streets are invited
  • Where? ROAM Coffee + Beer, 1205 Washington Street (where Elm and Broadway meet)

We’ll have a presentation from Eric Johnston, City of Bellingham Public Works Director. He’ll share information about ongoing Public Works projects and priorities and will update us about changes related to parking and bike lanes in our neighborhood.

We’ll also talk about open LSNA Board positions and our Board elections coming up in February.

Bring your self, your family, your friends, your neighbors – and your ideas for what you’d like to see in the neighborhood.

Looking forward to seeing you on December 14.

We need volunteers!

We are looking for folks to help with new and existing programming to engage our neighborhood civically and compassionately. Do you love food sharing programs? Want to help with childcare or gardening? Interested in starting a walking tour series or hosting a political forum? Want to practice your social media & marketing skills? We would love to hear from you!

Board meetings are held every second Tuesday. See meeting calendar for dates and Zoom link.

About the Lettered Streets Neighborhood

The Lettered Streets Neighborhood is situated on the Salish Sea and the ancestral territories of the Lummi and Nooksack peoples. Early white settlers built sawmills near the mouth of Whatcom Creek in the 1850s and established the town of Whatcom, later incorporated into the City of Bellingham in 1903. Forming the first neighborhood in Bellingham, the Lettered Streets were built on bluffs overlooking the mudflats of Bellingham Bay and along the northern shore of Whatcom Creek. Today, the neighborhood has a mix of businesses and offices, schools, small parks, and single family homes and midsize apartment buildings housing over 800 households.

The Lettered Streets Neighborhood Association creates opportunities for shared learning and community building in this place we call home. We aim to build a sense of place and connection in our neighborhood. The board is composed of renters and homeowners spanning multiple generations. All residents within the boundaries of the Lettered Streets Neighborhood are considered members of the Association and are entitled to a voice and vote in organizational matters.

We welcome your participation in our informational meetings and social gatherings. Please contact us anytime at Lettered.Streets@gmail.com.
