UW I-LABS Seeks Volunteers

March 19th, 2016 by Support Staff

The University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) studies social and cognitive development. Their researchers explore why infants enjoy social interactions, how toddlers learn about the emotions and goals of other people, and when children develop empathy for others.

They are looking for infants and children in the age range of 0 to 8 years old to join their registry. They will keep your information in a confidential list and contact you when your child is near the age for a study. More information about individual studies will be provided once your child has been selected.

Laurelhurst Tennis Court Drainage Improvement Project

March 12th, 2016 by Support Staff

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to the Laurelhurst Community Club meeting on Monday, March 14, 2016 at the Laurelhurst Community Center, 4554 NE 41st St.

Katie Bang, Seattle Parks and Recreation project manager, is on the agenda at 7:30 p.m.

This project replaces the Laurelhurst drainage system installed in the early 1900s. The existing lines are in poor condition. The goal of the project is to improve drainage of the tennis court and bang board courts, to reduce flooding, and to reduce ongoing maintenance needs.

The southern tennis courts will be closed this spring for construction. The courts are scheduled to be open in time for Summer Tennis Camp in late June. Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with the contractor to minimize impacts to the neighborhood and park.

For more information about the project please click here. If you have additional questions about the project or would like to request accommodations or need an interpreter please contact Katie Bang at Katie.bang@seattle.gov or 206-684-9286.
