Do you enjoy connecting with your neighbors? We certainly do, and could use some help connecting online. The NCNA is looking for someone to help with our social media outreach. This would include sharing news from the City of Shoreline, activities of the NCNA, and stories you think neighbors would be interested in!

If interested, send an email to info@northcityna.org and we will flow up with more details.


New Street Banners for North City!

Posted on to News

Banner being installed by Safeway Perfect blue skies to watch the banners get installed! Thirteen North City banners were put up today – part of our effort to enhance the cityscape in our little town. This project was funded by a mini-grant from the City of Shoreline.

Banner being installed by Frank’s Door Store Many thanks to the City of Shoreline Neighborhoods Coordinator, Constance Perenyi, for helping us navigate the city's requirements with a minimum of hassle and a maximum of speed and efficiency.

New banner by Leena’s We will need to support ongoing maintenance and any future banner projects on our own and will be working on fundraising to that end. Stay tuned!

Shoreline, WA 98155

Join us Thursday, August 12 for a casual meetup outdoors at the Monka Brewing Co. There's no formal agenda – we simply want to meet with neighbors and catch up.

The North City Neighborhood Association has been using the COVID lockdown period as a time to re-focus our efforts. We've created a board structure, shored up our legal standing, and are looking forward to building a vibrant organization that can help build community in our growing neighborhood.

Stop by to say hello, support a local business, and learn about some of our plans for 2021 and beyond!

PS: The need for food remains great in our City, and Hopelink is serving more people than ever. The City of Shoreline is coordinating food drive efforts with a Can Castle Contest. We will accept any donations at the meetup event and bring them to the Food Drive at City Hall.


Weeding Help Needed

Posted on to News

There used to be a fair amount of horsetail (equisetum) growing in the Gateway planters. Since we've replanted them, it doesn’t want to go away without a fight.

Digging or pulling the horsetail out is not practical. It is impossible to get all the roots — any bits left will continue to grow. The best approach is to keep snipping of any shoots it sends up. That depletes the roots of energy, eventually doing them in.

If you happen to be by the planter and see some horsetail, help us out and cut off any shoots!

Also, remember that we can use help watering, too!
