Last Chance to "Claim Your Stake" in Redmond's Downtown Park
Redmond Neighborhood Blog - Redmond, WA - Final opportunity to vote on Redmond's Downtown Park design ends Monday, July 28. Community members can log onto the City web site at www.redmond.gov/downtownparkconcepts and select their favorite concept that will determine the look and character of Redmond's new signature park. Read More >>The City of Redmond has collected over 1,000 citizen responses since February of this year throughout the Master Plan phase of the downtown park project; and unveiled the final three park design concepts at Derby Days that gained an additional 643 votes. "We encourage all citizens to share their thoughts and ideas for the future Downtown Park," said Parks and Recreation Director Craig Larsen. "Our goal is to create a park that reflects the needs of our community, and we are eager to learn what citizens think of the creative layouts that have been crafted for this new park." Every great city has a signature place that serves as a destination, an icon for the city, and a catalyst for economic growth. The Downtown Park will create a place for community members to gather and celebrate. It will be a vibrant community space that encourages special events, arts, music and fun. The enhanced pedestrian environment in and around the park will stimulate economic activity in the neighborhood. The Downtown Park project is in the first of three phases that are needed to create a park. Currently finishing up phase one in early fall, the Master Plan phase explores possibilities for the park with the community and delivers a preferred concept, or approach, for design. The second, Design phase (Fall 2014) will create detailed design plans, construction documents and identify funding for the selected Master Plan concept. The final, Construction phase will proceed when the design plans are complete and funding is in place, timing to be determined. The park site is located between Redmond Way and Cleveland Street and is bordered by the new 161st AVE NE on the west, and the Stone House Restaurant on the east. The grassy space that is present along 161st AVE NE now is about acre and when completed the new park will be two acres.

LWSD Sup. Pierce: "Likeliest earliest scenario for a facilities bond measure is February 2016"
Redmond Neighborhood Blog - Lake Washington School District Superintendent Traci Pierce concluded in her Monday Superintendent's Report to the Board "The likeliest earliest scenario for a facilities bond measure is February 2016."    She said, "we need to comprehensively and very intentionally re-engage with our community at large on this issue of school facilities to inform any potential plan for a future bond measure."  Pierce said "we need to do it right and we need to do it well and it will take time."  Beginning in the Fall she plans to form a large, representative stakeholder group to serve as an advisory committee.  The committee will be composed of community members, business representatives, local government representatives, parents, staff and students and will meet monthly during the 2014-2015 school year.  The goal of the group is to complete an assessment of future facilities needs and develop options and processes of community engagement.  Ultimately the committee will present recommendations to the Board for a future bond measure.  Between January 2015 and June 2015 time will be taken to develop a consensus recommendation to engage the wider community.   August 2015 is the earliest time for a recommendation for a measure with  February 2016 the likely earliest scenario for a future bond measure vote.  The earliest new schools could be built are in 2018.   In the meantime boundary adjustments will have to be made district-wide and other facilities accommodated.  Follow Redmond Blog on Facebook: www.facebook.com/redmondblogger Read more...
