Join The Historic District Petition Campaign
The Laurelhurst Historic District petition campaign is forging ahead. During December and January, many dozens of Laurelhurst residents spoke to their friends and neighbors, distributed flyers and information sheets, and manned tables at neighborhood events. Several hundred of your neighbors have already signed our Declaration of Support!
If you want to learn more about how Historic District will protect Laurelhurst from RIP and demolitions, and preserve our neighborhood's beauty and historic character, there's lots of information in the articles as well as the pages on RIP and on WHYHISTORIC.

This is a grassroots effort of Laurelhurst homeowners and neighbors, trying to protect the unique, historic, and irreplaceable neighborhood we all love. We are trying to stop developers from converting our larger lots into apartment and condominium clusters. We are trying to stop our historic houses from being demolished to build duplexes and triplexes. We are trying to preserve our smaller homes for young families to buy and grow with, instead of seeing them snapped up by developers. We are trying to keep Laurelhurst the special place it is, with beautiful older homes on quiet streets.
The Residential Infill Project zoning rules are being written now. RIP is likely to become effective before the end of this year. There is no time to waste.
