All seven Kenmore City Council members voted to approve support of the Sound Transit 3 ballot measure, voting 7-0 to adopt Resolution No. 16-284. The Kenmore City Council recognizes the magnitude of bringing expanded transit through ST3 to Kenmore, including the long-term impact on the Northshore region and the number of citizens and businesses that will benefit from increased mobility. The City Council put strategic and focused resources into advocating for these projects.
After a public hearing at Tuesday's special Bothell City Council meeting, councilmembers have approved an ordinance authorizing a Safe Streets and Sidewalks ballot measure for the Nov. 8 general election. The measure would present voters with the option of a nine-year property tax increase ("levy lid lift") of 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed value ($188 per year for the median home value of $376,000).
The blotter feature is both a description of a small selection of police incidents and a statistical roundup of all calls to the King County Sheriff's Office that are dispatched to on-duty police officers. The King County Sheriff's Office blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Kenmore.
As a family who shares the same hill as UWB/CC we are always thrilled when they do something well and even take the lead on. With the waning population of the peaceable pollinators we are all concerned. Anyone who loves their garden… or fresh produce, is keenly aware of the fewer pollinator numbers. It is heartening to see someone amending a solution. The campus has a sizable pollinating garden. It's specifically placed to help boost our pollinating populations. It would be great if the residents of Bothell became a model city in creating in their gardens and green space, habitats that bloom throughout the growing season and can support the life cycle of our pollinators. They will become "bridges" to our neighboring communities, who in turn can create a wider impact. That's the kind of population growth we all can support… without the worry of transportation impact fees.
With the long, warm, sunny days of summer ahead, tens of thousands of Americans nationwide will spend their days outside. However, with electronic media use at an all-time high, the 12,484 8-18 year-old kids in the Bothell and Kenmore area may be sitting on a couch with their attention on a screen. A Kaiser Family Foundation survey discovered that within this age group, children spend a daily average of seven hours and 38 minutes using electronic media; this calculates to 53 hours per week.
