Jon's statement

Hi, I am Jon Lebo, I am running for Lake Forest Park City Council Position Number 3.

I am running because I want to make a positive contribution to people’s lives in Lake Forest Park.

Over these past several months, I have had the opportunity to talk with many of you as I walked around the diverse neighborhoods of Lake Forest Park. 

It is exciting to hear all the reasons why you love living in Lake Forest Park. I heard themes about what makes Lake Forest Park special - the forest and streams, the shared values of your neighbors and the community feeling in the neighborhoods.

I also heard your concerns about cars racing through the neighborhoods, the lack of sidewalks, the lack of lake access, concerns about housing opportunities, and homelessness in our community.

Together, I think we can work to find practical solutions to these issues. I bring my passion for Lake Forest Park, my energy, experience and practical common-sense approach to the council to make sure we are addressing your needs and spending your money wisely.

A little about me. I grew up here, attending Shoreline public schools starting with kindergarten at Lake Forest Park Elementary and graduating from Shorecrest High School. Go Scots!

Twelve years ago, I moved back to Lake Forest Park to raise our family and enjoy the amenities and character of the community.

I am an architect and project leader with 33-years’ experience in civic planning, design, and construction management.

I served as a volunteer member of the Lake Forest Park Planning Commission for 7 years, 3 as chair. I heard your concerns and opposed the developer desired 7-story apartment buildings in the Town Center. 

I worked collaboratively with the commission members to recommend to the council we retain the existing building height limits, improving open space, environmental, sustainability, and affordable housing requirements as part of the new Town Center code, and the council agreed.

Together, let’s continue to make Lake Forest Park the place where we, our children and our grandchildren all want to live, work, and play.

On November 2, vote for Jon Lebo, Lake Forest Park City Council Position number 3.

Thank you.
