LCNA member organizations are already working to assess and address community needs through separate neighborhood groups and individual missions. Formally established in 2013, the work of the LCNA is to provide a conduit for these groups to identify common goals, pool resources, and support each other in developing and realizing neighborhood projects. We continually seek input through active engagement. Details are contained in the LCNA Bylaws.
The lack of a robust Community Center in Lake City has been LCNA’s highest priority since 2014. We believe this is a racial and social justice issue that manifests as a lack of infrastructure. Current major concerns also include:
- public safety and transportation
- displacement of small businesses
- the opioid crisis and homelessness
- affordable housing
- parks and green spaces
Join us. All are welcome. The LCNA hosts a public meeting on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm (usually) at Lamb of God Lutheran Church, 12509 27th Ave. NE. A smaller meeting of the Board of Directors happens the third Monday of each month. With prior request, Board meetings are open to representatives of member groups.

Lake City has many groups working to build and maintain a vibrant neighborhood. With its geography divided by a state highway and major arterials, one of Lake City’s challenges is to overcome both a physical and mental sense of separation. To that end, the LCNA was formed to help coordinate the efforts of these separate neighborhood groups.
LCNA member organizations work to actively engage their constituents in decisions and projects, especially as they impact families, homes, and livelihoods. LCNA member
