A roundup of neighborhood newsletters in the Seattle area

Find your community and stay connected.


There’s never a shortage of things to learn about in our city.

Extra, extra — read all about your neighborhood.

If you’re looking to stay plugged in to the people and community close to where you live, it might be a good idea to add some smaller, neighborhood-specific publications and newsletters to your daily content diet. That would be in addition to yours truly, of course.

Here are a few to check out. They’re all free.

Laurelhurst | This (mostly) monthly newsletter shares details about major city initiatives like the One Seattle Day of Service and smaller nuggets of joy like info on a new rhododendron that was recently planted.

Fauntleroy | Run by the Fauntleroy Community Association, this quarterly publication goes out first to its members, but is always posted online for non-members. It includes info about ongoing developments and community events once posted online for non.

Belltown United | This monthly email is comprehensive — it has a list of community events and happy hours, business features, and city council news.

Pioneer Square | Get to know local business leaders and Alliance for Pioneer Square staff members, learn about events like the monthly art walk, and see what other local media outlets have been saying about Seattle’s original downtown in this monthly newsletter.

Focus on Redmond | While this newsletter only comes out three times a year, it includes messages from both the mayor and city council, features on inspiring citizens, opportunities to give feedback, and an events calendar.

It’s Your City (Bellevue) | At more than 10 pages long for each edition, this publication that comes out three times a year is more like a magazine than newsletter. It includes city council meeting debriefs and highlights, info on new art installations, and breakdowns of all the local park renovations.
