Woodinville seeks input on new downtown street names

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

The city of Woodinville is seeking citizen input to help identify new street names for the Central Business District. New street names will help to establish a unique identity for the area and the city. New developments, new streets and the extension of current streets will change this area of the city, and your input will help to generate names that better depict our downtown.

To record your input, a survey has been created that shows a map of the streets being considered for a name change and space to enter the name you feel best fits the City. Follow this link to make your opinion count: The survey will be open until April 30.

For more information on this project, contact the City at 425-489-2700.

Community responds quickly to help family

“I have lived in many nice places around the country,” Amy Parker said two days after a devastating fire destroyed her family’s barn and took the lives of several beloved farm animals. “But because of this community I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
