PROPOSED HOTEL

In the last few months residents of the Vineyards neighborhood, located near the intersection of 127th Pl NE and SR-202, have been actively opposing the development of a proposed Marriott Hotel near their homes. The site of the project would be on a small (0.75 acres or so) tract at the foot of 128th Pl NE where it joins SR-202 (Woodinville-Redmond Rd). The proposed five-story hotel would have more than 100 rooms and would severely aggravate the existing traffic congestion now affecting this important commercial intersection.

195th Street barrier

Retention of the 195th Street barrier has never been about the neighborhood’s “loss of quiet character” or about preventing people from accessing our neighborhood. From the beginning, we demanded safety for the children who MUST walk to school along sub-standard, dangerous roads. Northshore School District does not provide bus service for students within a mile of school.  Why discourage children from walking to school?

Salmon Sculpture

The recent prohibition of decorations on Woodinville’s salmon statue seems to me strangely dystopian. The good citizens of Woodinville have for years shown their spirit, creativity, joy, kindness, positivity, and empathy through their decorations. Now they can no longer do this. Wouldn’t it make more sense to prohibit, punish, or squelch behavior that was hateful, vengeful, negative, and discriminatory? I have a feeling there must be a book in which Dr. Seuss said this better, but doesn’t the Woodinville government have this backwards?

EvergreenHealth Board of Commissioners

Dear Editor,

Please don’t overlook Proposition No. 1. It’s the measure that if approved would increase the EvergreenHealth Board of Commissioners from five to seven members. It’s time for new blood. Two of the present commissioners have been on the Board for over 30 years. The Chairman will have had 41 years of service by the time his term ends.   A Board with two new members will “broaden the viewpoint of the community” and be more likely to open their Community Advisor meetings to the public.  Please vote yes for Proposition No. 1.

Bob Yoder
