MLTCF Newsletter Vol. 2

Newsletter Vol. 2

Since publicly launching the MLTCF last month we have been doing a lot of behind the scenes planning for several projects and programs as well as meeting with various community groups and residents about partnering opportunities. Here's a little about what we've been up to.

Neighborhood Improvement Program

We're getting close to asking for project ideas for out Neighborhood Improvement Program. This will be an opportunity for community members to bring ideas for small projects that will improve our neighborhoods. The MLTCF will provide some funding and resources for community members to complete the projects. Stay tuned for program guidelines and project application in the coming weeks.

Mountlake Music

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, we are working on a summer concert series at Lake Ballinger in partnership with the Community Senior Center. We've had a planning meeting with City staff and Senior Center staff to talk logistics and are looking for volunteers to help with this effort. Interested? Email

Community Resilience Classes

We recently met with some folks who teach classes with FEMA curriculum on what to do during emergencies, specifically before first responders arrive. We are working with them to set up some free classes to better prepare our community for emergencies. Some topics will be "until help arrives", stop the bleed, and active shooter training.


We're happy to be joining the Mountlake Terrace Business Association and will be presenting our organization at their February meeting. Supporting a strong local business climate is important to the MLTCF and we are looking forward to partnering with the business community.
