Community Documents & Concerns


City of Bellevue Police Department

Lochleven Community Association (LCA)

The following drafts were sent to members of LCA on Feb 24, 2023, requesting member review and input. Some of the changes were required to comply with the State of Washington's revised RCW 24.03 - Non-Profit Act.  Other changes reflect input from the past Board, current Board and working committee to provide clarity and address keys omissions from the original draft. Other changes reflect subjective input from the committee and may not be legally required.

As noted in my comments in the documents, several of the proposed change are of concern.  These include but are not limited to expanding the geographic boundaries of LCA (conflicting with King County definition of Lochleven and founding members vote), reducing voting rights of property owners who are leasing their property, assigning all assets to the Boys and Girls Club on dissolution (vs a possible successor organization or another northwest Bellevue community-based organization and other changes when combined are of concern. Other items have been added to the bylaws are generally deemed to be more appropriate in stand-alone policy documents, such as annual dues.
