Every Vote Counts

From King County’ Election site:

I support the school bond and encourage you to vote yes.  Your vote could make the difference.

Snoqualmie Valley School District Podcast?

March 13, 2011

I just found out that the Snoqualmie Valley School District has a pod cast. What a great idea for people who want to know about our school district but can not make the board meetings. You can learn more about the podcasts at http://www.svsd410.org/podcasts/

Happy listening.

King County Comprehensive Plan to allow more development before making traffic improvements?

October 7, 2007

This is an interesting Seattle Times article regarding proposed revisions to the King County Comprehensive plan. They want to allow development even when congestion is at level E, in a scale from A to F. This is a radical change that eliminates traffic concurrency in my opinion.  You can find out more about the 2008 revision to the comp plan here.  The good news They are looking for comments from citizens.  The next local meeting is October 11, 2007 at Cascade View Elementary School 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
