Coming April 24 – Curbside Neighborhood Cleanup

Lincoln Heights is trying something new this year for the clean up event. The neighborhood council will be offering an extra curbside pickup. Due to the limited funds allocated for clean-up in the neighborhood please follow these rules:

  • Limit of 3 items per household. Household items must be in standard 32 gallon cans, city provided garbage carts of any size, boxes, bags, or bundles. Any receptacle other than 32 gallon cans city provided garbage carts may be considered trash, and requests for replacement will not be recognized.
  • Items MUST be at the curb by 7:00am.
  • No large appliances or oversized items. Small appliances, including TV’s and microwaves are OK, as are mattresses and box springs.
  • No items over 85lbs.
  • No big blue cart (recyclable) materials, including batteries


Minutes from recent meetings are posted below:

  • Report on Nov 20th, 2013 District Center Planning Workshop here: spokaneplanning.org (Scroll down to Lincoln Heights District Center – see survey link).

LHNC meetings are every other month: Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sept, Nov, on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Dump passes ($40 value) will be available for distribution again in Spring 2015.

The City’s Forest Spokane project has funded 3 tree projects in Lincoln Heights.  More than 30 large trees (6-14′) were planted along the SE Blvd parkway, and on the 35th Ave Greenway. On Saturday, November 8th, 20+ neighbors turned out to add mulch to the new trees.  Lincoln Heights Garden Club supplied and planted a variety of spring bulbs.  SusieForest provided snacks and offered suggestions for adopting a newly planted tree and making it part of family rituals – bird feeding, xmas decorating, etc.

Nov 8th, Council members and Lincoln Heights Garden Club members mulch 20 new trees.

Neighbors adjacent to the plantings have volunteered to water the trees in warm weather, until these native trees are well-established.

LHNC is grateful to the City for the award, and to can-do neighbors who partnered on this project.
