Another annual Fauntleroy event occurs on the first Tuesday of August. On Tuesday, August 4, Fauntleroy neighbors will celebrate Seattle Night Out Against Crime with multiple block parties. Night Out is an annual event that celebrates community. See photos and other information on the FCA Seattle Night Out webpage. Register your block party and street closure on the SPD Night Out webpage.

Take our survey!

Your Fauntleroy Community Association wants to know what you think! Two years ago, the Fauntleroy Community Association (FCA) sent a survey to over 3,000 Fauntleroy residents. The purpose was to find out what matters to them most, so that the FCA Board could better focus on the community's concerns.

This year, we are conducting a survey that probes deeper into some of the areas we asked about before, and into some new issues that have emerged more recently.
