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.

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.

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.
