Our neighborhood is just starting to use a private online network called Nextdoor Haller Lake, and we think you’ll benefit from joining us. On our Nextdoor site, neighbors share community events, recommendations, items for sale/free, crime/safety concerns, ideas about how to make our neighborhood better, and more. Currently, the boundaries of the Haller Lake neighborhood exclude the area east of I-5, but we can expand it. Only members who are verified to live in the defined neighborhood are allowed to view the page or post anything to prevent spam, etc. The easiest way to be verified is to use your phone number (Nextdoor looks up the number associated with your address, calls it and gives you a code), but there are other ways described on the web page. Please join us to help build a better neighborhood!

I want to thank you for inviting me to come and speak with your
community last night! I ended up not leaving until after 9pm.
It is so difficult to cover personal and community Hubs in 10 (ish) minutes.
Also, as some of your members saw last night, I am a” list” person. So
here is a list of first steps to help get started.
1)Identify at least 5 people who are interested in becoming a Hub
2) Identify a meeting place (make sure the space you identify is aware
and agrees to work with you)-pretty built in for y’all.
3) Identify needs of the community
4) Identify community resources and skills
5) Connect with OEM (our office)
6) Connect with a Hub mentor
How your Hub looks will be up to you. Broadview is a little different
than Ballard which is different that Magnolia/ Queen Anne/Interbay
(MIQA) which is a little different than Rainier Beach, etc.
Some have focused on neighborhood preparedness: host training, being
at community events, door-to-door, etc.
Other have focused on Communication: host trainings, work with ACS,
establish runners, utilize community bulletin doors, etc.
And others have focused on First Aid: hosting trainings so as much of
the community can take action.
And so on and so on.
Also, many have utilized the department of Neighborhood Small Sparks
Funding Awards to get started and late applied for larger awards to
build momentum, create opportunities for engagement and expand their
As always, I am available to answer questions, meet with the initial
group and connect you to a Hub mentor.
Thank you for the opportunity to connect. I hope to work with you all
Please feel free to share this with any of the interested parties.
