In his weekly update, Lakewood City Manager Andrew Neiditz wrote the following about a new neighborhood association in the area of Western State Hospital:
&bull North Lakewood Neighborhood Association Forming: Bylaws were voted into place and officers were selected on February 7th for the new North Lakewood Neighborhood Association. This is LPD’s 6th District, the neighborhoods on the north side of Steilacoom Blvd. from Western State Hospital to Mountain View, including Oakbrook. The Steering Committee meets the first Saturday of each month for a working breakfast at the Fan Club on 83rd. They plan two Neighborhood Association meetings per year at Oakbrook School. The next meeting will be May 13th at 6:00 pm
I’m trying to find out what some of the goals will be for this new neighborhood association, as well as how it work with Western State. Neiditz told me today that this group is sort of a larger, more formalized incarnation of the Oakbrook neighborhood association. It’s also being coordinated through the Lakewood Police Department.
