Spring Meeting!
Zoom – May 18, 2021

Join us for the May meeting of the Lettered Streets Neighborhood Association. Meet your neighbors and show our neighborhood some love. This will be a virtual meeting. We hope to plan a summer event to see neighbors in person (at safe distance) this summer. Stay tuned!

For our May Meeting, we will host representatives from the Opportunity Council’s Recovery House project on Girard Street. The renovation project is nearing completion, albeit later than expected due to Covid-19. The ribbon cutting will tentatively happen in June. At our May Meeting, the Opportunity Council and Lifeline Connections will provide the LSNA Board and Lettered Streets neighbors with an update and answer any questions.

We’ll also discuss how to get involved with the Neighborhood Association, including signing up for board positions!

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!

Email us at: lettered.streets@gmail.com



All in-person LSNA meetings are currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Washington State guidelines on nonessential activities. If you are interested in helping our neighborhood address essential needs and social well-being during this extraordinary time, please contact us. We are hoping to conduct virtual meetings and events soon.

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.
