The Woodinville Duvall road project has generated more complaints from area residents than any construction project ever should. I have sent letters to the public works director and city council regarding this project and have come to the conclusion that, while the contractor is blatantly failing to meet his obligations, the city of Woodinville is equally at fault for failing to hold the contractor accountable. While driving through the construction site I noticed this sign (see photo) dented and discarded alongside the road. It begs the question, does Woodinville really care enough to force the contractor to live up to his obligations?

EASTER EGG HUNT
I have been going to the Community Easter Egg hunt for three years. This is the last time I will go unless things change. It’s like going to Disneyland, standing in 30 minute lines just to jump in a bouncy house or go down a slide.
This year there were so many kids of all ages. The little ones really could not participate due to the amount of kids in the egg section. I would suggest to make this more even for all kids, make the limit kindergarten through first grade, second through third grade and fourth through fifth grade. Right now it is kindergarten through second grade and those kids are just too aggressive and big for the little guys. I was there with three kids and they only got one or two eggs each, while the bigger kids were getting sacks full. My little guy was crying he was so disappointed.
While I appreciate the efforts of putting this huge egg hunt on, I think it needs to have better structure. The crowding around the egg areas was dangerous for adults, and if you have a little one you can’t really watch him to make sure he doesn’t get trampled. They need to come up with a better, safer way to do this next year, like maybe lining the kids up according to age and let the little ones go first, then release the next age and so on.
