Thanks to YOU!

Dear Coexist Lake Washington members,


Thank you! More than 360 of you signed the recent letter to the Mayor and to city officials asking for a return to the traditional Bicycle Sunday schedule on Lake Washington Boulevard – and the city heard you. 


Our participation made a difference! The City is limiting closures to ten regularly scheduled weekends from 10 a.m. Saturdays to 6 p.m. Sundays. There will be no Friday or Monday closures and no extended holiday weekends this summer. Our support resulted in a more balanced approach.


However, our work is just starting. Coexist members will continue to advocate for the full return to the traditional twice-monthly Bicycle Sundays we had for 55 years. Our strength is in our members and our numbers. Please continue to reach out to your neighbors, family and friends and encourage them to join Coexist Lake Washington and keep the boulevard open to everyone.


Again, thank you!

Waiting for SDOT Recommendations for LWB Future

Thank you for joining our coalition and supporting our efforts to keep our beautiful stretch of Lake Washington Boulevard (LWB) open to everyone, no matter how they are able to enjoy it. Forgive us for being slow to get information out to you regarding developments. We’re a tiny group of volunteers, many of whom have never done anything like this before, and we’ve had to ramp up quickly.


Despite our silence, we have been working hard behind the scenes, researching data to present to the City and developing our strategy as we move forward. We are currently waiting for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) to announce the recommendations for the future of LWB that have come out of their Lake Washington Boulevard Visioning Task Force/Phase One process. These recommendations are expected to be released sometime this month or next, and will be sent to the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation (SPR). SPR will be the lead City agency for the next phase of community engagement, planning and design.


The best way you can help right now is to get people to sign on with us. Reach out to friends, neighbors, family, anyone you know who has expressed dismay at the possibility of no longer being able to drive along LWB in both directions. Tell them that our power is with numbers and each one of our voices is important. They can find us at


Please let us know if you’d like to volunteer with us.  We’re looking for people who have experience with web design and maintenance, videography, graphic design, social media, etc. You can do so by sending us an email at or


Together, we can keep LWB open to everyone, no matter how they are able to enjoy their experience.


Thank you,

Coexist Lake Washington volunteers
