Building a better community every day!
It has been a busy few days. Here are some of the events that I attended:
Last week: Open House re: 17 story building possibility - nothing more than what I described in a previous post. Drawings, at this point, are just concept drawings.
Monday - Community Affairs and Parks committee - very interesting discussion about current regulation on ADU or accessory dwelling units. Tukwila does not allow for DADU or detached accessory dwelling units.
Monday - City Council meeting - listen to the audio. Very good discussion on the proposed 17 story building. There was a pretty juicy discussion in reports, miscellaneous. Dennis Robertson very unhappy with how the administration handled a particular matter called the Briscoe/DeSimone levee. The mayor signed a memo in support of the Kent position on this project without consulting the council. The question: Should he have consulted the council? I don't know for sure. Do a google search for more information. I encourage one to listen to the audio.
Tuesday - Transportation committee meeting - interesting discussion on a safe route to school project to Cascade View going between the church and cemetery.
Tuesday - school board meeting, no fireworks of the type that you might have expected given all that is going on. Very interesting discussion about the different kinds of legislation being proposed in Olympia given the McCleary decision by the state Supreme Court.
