Damage To Median On "Boulevard" At 43rd Avenue NE Repaired By SDOT Yesterday
Laurelhurst Blog - damage to Boulevard medianlast month  Area repaired yesterday Yesterday afternoon, a neighbor living on the "Boulevard" at 43rd Avenue NE and NE 45th Street, reported that SDOT was repairing the damage to the median caused by a large vehicle turning the corner with limited space last month.The  neighbor said: Good news!  SDOT is repairing the 43rd Avenue median. I saw the trucks and went out there and thanked them. The man I spoke to said he was going to speak with a supervisor about possibly paving over the part that gets driven on by buses and trucks.  The Laurelhurst Blog posted last month about the damage as described by another neighboring resident who lives near the area:  Looks like a large truck or construction vehicle ran over the north west portion, at the intersection of NE 45th Street and 43rd Avenue NE, of the median taking out a huge chunk of grass and leaving it in a very bad state.  If anyone knows who this is, please speak up as they need to pay for the repairs - replacing the grass, etc. We take great pride in keeping the median looking nice and this is really too bad.  Comments to the Laurelhurst Blog following that post said:.Vehicles can't make the turn due to cars parking on the corner, usually Children's Hospital employees, who then walk to work across the street.  This type of damage happens a lot with trucks like Amazon Fresh, FedEx, UPS, random Contractor, school bus or a random car that can not make the turn. This latest was a school bus. Every time someone drives over the median I fill in the hole and work to clean it up. If we want to fix it we need to add drainage for this grass and add no parking signs.   I have lived on the Boulevard for 40 years and this type of damage has happened very frequently over the many ears.  Large trucks turning the corner off NE 45th Street must dodge parked cars and have no where else to go on that narrow street. Care of the median is very inconsistent.  Once the city abandoned the care of the medians things went downhill quickly.  Plants died for lack of irrigation and the median became overgrown.  The City finally agreed to once again irrigate the median periodically.  And now some of us are paying to have the median mowed.  However the beds are filled with weeds and trash; northern beds are the worst.  For a while I paid my gardeners to periodically weed and clean up some of those beds but grew weary of shouldering that burden alone.  I think it is a shame that Laurelhurst residents are not banding together to keep our main entrance attractive. Regarding the damage to the median on 43rd Avenue NE at NE 45th Street, this is the result of Children's employees and construction staff parking in front of our house.  We see numerous big delivery trucks drive up on the median--FedEx, UPS, scho Read more...

Laurelhurst Blog - The Laurelhurst Blog received this email:A few weeks ago we lost our orange, blue and white boomerang in a tree in Laurelhurst Park, in the large trees lining the east side between the two stair entrances on 48th Avenue NE.   My 6-year-old son asked that I email the neighborhood to make sure everyone keeps an eye out for it if it falls on a windy day.  It is stuck up pretty high.   If anyone happens to find it, we'd love to have it back as it was a birthday gift.  It's orange, blue & white.Please contact laurelhurstblogger@gmail.com if you have any information.

Older Man Yelling Late Last Night On 55th Avenue NE, NE 41st Street And East Laurelhurst Drive
Laurelhurst Blog - The Laurelhurst Blog received this email from a resident on East Laurelhurst Drive NE near 46th Avenue NE:Last night around midnight, an older man, who appeared homeless, appeared outside of our house screaming incoherently about midnight.   When we opened our door to see what was going on, he yelled at us and seemed very agitated, as well as threatening.  Police were called but I haven't heard if they were able to locate this person.   The 911 incident report map, shows several calls last night from 55th Avenue NE to NE 41st Street to East Laurelhurst Drive.  He was awfully loud, literally screaming, so I doubt we were the only ones that heard him.   Police never came to our home.  I think they may have gone to a neighbors house, a few doors down, as we heard something around 2am.911 incident report map calls potentially relating to same incident: 5/21/2015 12:06:00 AMHAZARDSCAD Event Number: 1500016639342XX BLOCK OF 55 AV NEFinal Call Type Category: HAZARDS5/21/2015 1:58:00 AMNOISE DISTURBANCECAD Event Number: 1500016643333XX BLOCK OF E LAURELHURST DR NEFinal Call Type Category: DISTURBANCES5/21/2015 3:52:00 AMNOISE DISTURBANCECAD Event Number: 1500016629143XX BLOCK OF NE 55 STFinal Call Type Category: DISTURBANCES Read more...

Runoff Now Feeds Prairie Rain Garden at Center for Urban Horticulture
Laurelhurst Blog - UW Botanic Gardens' Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) , located in Laurelhurst, popular for bird watching and walking, recently posted this interesting information in their newsletter:Runoff Now Feeds Prairie Rain Garden at Center for Urban Horticultureby UWBG Communication Staff Malcolm Howard standing in the prairie rain garden in its first spring after planting, looking west across the Union Bay Natural Area.What to do about muddy puddles caused by rain runoff in the middle of a trail used by hundreds of people every day? Could a garden solve the problem?Masters of Environmental Horticulture graduate student Malcolm Howard choose this problem area as his MEH project. He explains how the site was chosen: "The rain garden was placed along the trail to intercept runoff from the nearby parking lot. Instead of water ponding on the trail after rains, the rain garden helps retain this runoff and convey the remaining water under the trail."The prairie rain garden was installed just south west of the parking lot that is on the west side of Merrill Hallat the Center for Urban Horticulture. The trail leads to the popular Union Bay Natural Area where visitors enjoy watching birds and feeling immersed in a wild place.What does Malcolm expect to accomplish with the Prairie Rain Garden? "I hope that the garden can help improve trail conditions, while displaying some interesting native prairie plants for people to enjoy and learn about."The Prairie Rain Garden received a small project grant from the UW Sustainability Fund in January 2015.Prairie Rain Garden Summary with plant list. #gallery-6 { margin: auto; } #gallery-6 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-6 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-6 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ The site before the prairie rain garden was installed.

Why Is Talaris No Longer Cutting Their Grass?
Laurelhurst Blog -     The Laurelhurst Blog has received many complaints about the overgrown grass at Talaris.on NE 41st Street.And the Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) has also received inquiries about why suddenly the grass is no longer being maintained.  Patients at the nearby dental office on the backside of their property have complained that they look out the big picture windows "onto a mess."Nathan Rimmer,  one of the representatives for Talaris owner, Bruce Mc Caw under the name 4000 Property LLC, said  "Talaris cut back on some site and building maintenance last fall to help relieve the annual operating loss.  Landscaping was part of that."LCC has said: LCC continually receives messages about the lack of maintenance of the areas of the Talaris property that abut the neighborhood.  The lack of maintenance has been a problem and we've heard from many neighbors about it.   Neighbors take great pride in our community and it is stressful when a large property owner does not have the same commitment.   LCC has sent email to the property representatives asking what their plans are to address this issue and is awaiting a response. And the Laurelhurst Blog sent email over two weeks ago and is also anticipating an answer.Comments received from neighbors:I imagine you've been hearing from more than one neighbor about the lack of care being given to the field at Talaris that runs along NE 41st Street. The lawn has become very overgrown and is not being cared for. That beautiful piece of land is becoming an eyesore. If you have any knowledge of what their plan for upkeep is, I would love to hear it.it just looks as though they haven't mowed the grass in weeks.  It makes me wonder if their plan is to let it grow wild given that some areas on the property have been mowed. Is it too much to ask that Mr. McCaw mow the lawn on 41st?  As a responsible owner I feel he should maintain the property and certainly he has the fund to do so. Has Talaris suddenly stopped mowing to get back at the neighborhood for not wanting their huge development? Certainly they have the financial resources to do the mowing with such a big development looming. And certainly McCaw has the funds - to say they don't is an insult to the neighborhood, as it is completely not true.  We have noticed that the lawn is no longer being regularly attended to, as it used to be.  Some areas are mowed while others aren't in an irregular manner which looks very odd, almost like a Mohawk.  Talaris has always been well-maintained over the many, many years and neighbors have always enjoyed the  beautiful grounds and until several years ago actually going onto the campus to enjoy the grounds. Never has it been  unkempt with no care to being a good neighbor and maintaining the grounds. especially as it is now. &n Read more...

Give Input At Special Community Meeting Tomorrow On Waterway No. 1 Enhancement Project
Laurelhurst Blog -  Waterway Number 1 in LaurelhurstTomorrow from 6:30-8:30pm, Seattle Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a special community meeting about Phase 3 of the Waterway No. 1 Enhancement Project, located in Laurelhurst at the corner of 43rd Avenue NE and NE 35th Street. The community is invited to share ideas on the ongoing project. The meeting will take place on the basketball court at the site.The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) recently sent out this information:Come learn about the landscape plan, offer your comments, meet Parks Neighborhood Planner Pamela Kliment, landscape architect Michael Lee, plant expert Arthur Lee Jacobson as well as other project leaders. Michael C. Lee, registered landscape architect and owner of Colvos Creek Nursery, designed a landscape plan that addresses the safety and access needs of visitors; soil erosion concerns; vegetation that both helps wildlife and beautifies the site.  The plan is based upon the concept plan developed as a result of community consensus at a design meeting years ago. The plan also includes design and possible installation of an ADA pathway.  The Laurelhurst Community Club received a $25,000 grant from the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund to implement the plan. What is Waterway #1?  Waterway #1 is a parcel of waterfront property located where Northeast 35th Street meets 43rd Avenue Northeast in Laurelhurst.  Long ago it was used as a boat launch for one of Seattle's mosquito fleet ferries, the Laurelhurst Launch, which shuttled folks from Laurelhurst to Madison Park and back.  Now it is a rare and treasured public access point to the waterfront where people can go to observe nature, walk dogs, launch non-motorized boats and play basketball.  The property is owned by the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and regulated by the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT). Community Consensus on WWI:  In addition to agreeing on safety improvements at the water's edge, at the community design meeting in 2005, neighbors agreed to the following:1.      Combination basketball court, grass, garden, and kayak launch 2.      Benches 3.      Accommodate a wide range of ages, interests and needs4.      Drought tolerant, disease resistant plants5.      Retain and improve the basketball court6.      Path to water - not interfering with court if reasonable7.      One or two small trees near the water's edge with benches underneath to provide shading for older neighbors8.      Enhance shoreline to improve ecology and habitat Progress on the WWI Enhancement Project:  Phase 1 of the project in November 2005 involved installation of several large, granite, slip-resistant boulders on the water's edge to improve Read more...

Neighbors Concerned That Talaris Doing Maintenace Work Too Close To Eagles Nest
Laurelhurst Blog -   Sprinkler system work last month at Talaris near eagles nest   Baby eagles on Talaris property July 2013 The Laurelhurst Blog recently received several emails from concerned neighbors living near Talaris (4001 NE 41st Street) that maintenance work looked too close to the well-known eagles nest on the property, located just off NE 41st Street. In March, several nearby resident observed adult eagles in the nest .In April, a concerned neighbor wrote that she was "hearing dump trucks and seeing a digging machine too close to eagles nest.  Where do I report this?"The Laurelhurst Blog Staff followed up with Erin Doherty, with the City's Landmarks Preservation Board, who said:I communicated with the Owner's representative and he said that they were "grinding and repaving a portion of the asphalt driveway that has several cracks and potholes in it".    Dave, DPD's Chief Building Inspector, was subsequently sent to the site to see what activity was occurring around that time and said:We observed a sprinkler system water line being installed, which did not require a plumbing inspection or permit. The work we observed is well away from the Eagle nest location.  We estimated about a quarter mile.Seth, a DPD Planner, said about the eagle regulations:The State Department of Fish and Wildlife no longer requires local jurisdictions to implement eagle protection measures when they issue development permits therefore DPD does not have a point person for this issue.    The requirements under WAC 232-12-292, which we used to implement, are only effective "when the bald eagle is listed under state law as threatened or endangered." Bald eagles were reclassified by the state from "threatened" to "sensitive" in Washington back in 2008, which made WAC 232-12-292 no longer in effect (see The USFWS currently runs a permit system for potential "take" of bald eagles under authority of the Bald Eagle Protection Act but it is separate with different requirements from the former state program; they also can cite people/entities for unlawful take of eagles.   Mark Miller, the contact at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for the Pacific region said:Bald and golden eagles are protected under the (Federal)  Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.  The US Fish and Wildlife Service has developed guidelines for activities near eagle nesting territories.   However, when the Service reviews activities that will be conducted near an eagle nest, we consider the specific circumstances of that eagle nesting territory and then make a determination whether that activity might disturb the eagles and whether any measures are necessary to minimize the probability of disturbing the eagles.  I am not familiar with the specific circumstances regarding the eagle nest Read more...

Cinammon Teals Have Arrived At Nearby Montlake Fill For Summer
Laurelhurst Blog - Connie Sidles, is a local birding expert who maintains a blog documenting the many types of birds, including beautiful pictures, at the nearby Union Bay Natural Area, also known as the Montlake Fill, and is also author of Fill of Joy and Tales from the Montlake Fill.She recently "posted a little story and poem about our local teals (ducks), both the ones who have left Montlake Fill and the ones who have arrived", she told the Blog Staff:Here and Gone    Green-winged Teals have left for parts north and east to breed.They leave quietly in the night, the ducks, hawks, and divers who have spent the winter with us. For them, Seattle is the balmy south. Now that spring has arrived, they are heading north and east to their breeding grounds. Spring is not traditionally a melancholy season, but I miss the teals, buffleheads, and wigeons who have delighted me for so many months. I know I won't see them again until October, and some will never return, fallen in transit or eaten while defending their nests. On the other hand, I can't spend much time in mourning, for the spring migrants and summer residents are arriving by the thousands. One of my favorites is the Cinnamon Teal, a glorious assemblage of red, orange, burnt umber, and yellow, a living hotbed of glowing embers in duckly form. Five males were on Main Pond yesterday, trying their best to impress a female, who seemed more interested in eating than in dating.Cinnamon Teals have arrived for the summer.Here is a poem for you about the teals:Remember the ones who are gone, yes, who may return, or never. Rejoice for the ones here in now, for they bring glory to today.     Read more...
