Riders will be able to transfer between the SR 522/NE 145th Stride S3 Line, I-405 North Stride S2 Line, Link light rail, and other transit services provided by Community Transit, King County Metro and Sound Transit.</p> <p><a href="https://sr522brt.participate.online" title="Stride S3 BRT Online Open-House"><img alt="Stride S3 BRT poster" height="1000" sizes="(max-width: 575.99px) 95vw, (max-width: 991.99px) 65vw, (max-width: 1199.99px) 610px, 730px" src="../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@800_q92.png" srcset="../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@640_q92.png 640w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@800_q92.png 800w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@1024_q92.png 1024w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@1280_q92.png 1280w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@1600_q92.png 1600w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@2000_q92.png 2000w, ../blog/2020/08/stride-s3-brt-open-house/st-north-lake-wa@2560_q92.png 2560w" width="800"/></a></p> 175th Street Corridor Improvements Survey https://northcityna.org/blog/2020/07/175th-street-corridor-improvements-survey/ 2020-07-07T17:07:23-07:00 <p>Changes are coming to 175th street between I-5 and Stone Way.

To get to the Activities Building, enter the main Fircrest gate off 15th Avenue NE (between NE 152st and 152nd Street); take a sharp left, and the building is on the right.</p> <dl class="field-list"> <dt>When/Where</dt> <dd><div class="line-block"> <div class="line">February 9, 2016 — 4:00pm</div> <div class="line">Fircrest Residential Habilitation Center</div> <div class="line">15230 15th Ave NE</div> </div> </dd> </dl> <!-- more --> The Haunting of Hamlin Park https://northcityna.org/blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/ 2015-11-10T13:50:08-08:00 2015-11-10T13:18:00-08:00 <p>A great Halloween celebration was had by all at the recent <a class="reference external" href="../blog/2015/09/hamlin-haunt/">Hamlin Haunt</a>.</p> <p>Thank you <a class="reference external" href="http://christopher-king.blogspot.com/2015/11/kingcast-presents-shoreline-halloween.html">Christopher King</a> for the pictures and video.</p> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-6"> <div class="figure"> <a class="reference external image-reference" href="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign.jpg"><img alt="Signpost" height="600" sizes="(max-width: 575.99px) 95vw, (max-width: 991.99px) 65vw, (max-width: 1199.99px) 610px, 730px" src="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign@800_q92.jpg" srcset="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign@640_q92.jpg 640w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign@800_q92.jpg 800w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign@1024_q92.jpg 1024w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_sign.jpg 1200w" width="800"/></a> <p class="caption">Fun for all…</p> </div> </div> <div class="col-sm-6"> <div class="figure"> <a class="reference external image-reference" href="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent.jpg"><img alt="The drink tent" height="600" sizes="(max-width: 575.99px) 95vw, (max-width: 991.99px) 65vw, (max-width: 1199.99px) 610px, 730px" src="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent@800_q92.jpg" srcset="../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent@640_q92.jpg 640w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent@800_q92.jpg 800w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent@1024_q92.jpg 1024w, ../blog/2015/11/haunted-hamlin/2015-11-10_haunt_tent.jpg 1200w" width="800"/></a> <p class="caption">…and hot drinks</p> <div class="legend"> <p>Warm drinks were provided by the North City Neighborhood Association.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> Next Meeting: Shoreline Economic Development Update https://northcityna.org/blog/2015/09/shoreline-economic-development-update/ 2015-09-21T14:06:00-07:00 <a class="reference external image-reference" href="../blog/2015/07/ncna-september-meeting/"><img alt="Shoreline Economic Development Update banner" class="img-responsive" height="295" sizes="(max-width: 575.99px) 95vw, (max-width: 991.99px) 65vw, (max-width: 1199.99px) 610px, 730px" src="../blog/2015/09/shoreline-economic-development-update/2015_ncna_econ-dev-emailbanner-784.png" srcset="../blog/2015/09/shoreline-economic-development-update/2015_ncna_econ-dev-emailbanner-784&#64;640_q92.png 640w, ../blog/2015/09/shoreline-economic-development-update/2015_ncna_econ-dev-emailbanner-784.png 784w" width="784" /></a> <hr class="docutils" /> <p>Please come to our next neighborhood meeting where Shoreline’s Economic Development Program Manager, Dan Eernissee, will share the city’s plans for future business development.</p> <p>The meeting will be held at 7:00pm, Tuesday, September 29 at Anderson Plaza, 177201 15th Ave NE.</p> <p>Further details are <a class="reference external" href="../blog/2015/07/ncna-september-meeting/">here</a>.</p> <!-- more --> Come to the North City Summer Picnic! https://northcityna.org/blog/2015/07/come-to-the-summer-picnic/ 2015-07-13T13:10:08-07:00 2015-07-03T18:58:00-07:00 <p>Please come to the North City Summer Picnic on Thursday, July 30!</p> <p>Bring the kids and meet your neighbors.
