Construction on natural gas pipeline could start next September

  • Written by Briana Gerdeman

The public has the chance, through Nov. 7, to comment on a new natural gas pipeline that will be installed on the Tolt Pipeline Corridor. Some residents have concerns about the pipeline’s safety, the construction  process and the lack of public input so far. Puget Sound Energy, which will be installing the pipeline, has tried to allay those concerns by holding meetings to answer questions.

The natural gas pipeline, which will run through Woodinville and unincorporated King County toward Duvall, is needed to provide more capacity as the demand for natural gas grows, according to PSE’s website. The Northshore area and unincorporated King County are already at risk for service disruptions, and that problem will only get worse as the population increases.

Recommendation to start new Northshore high school with grades 9-11

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Northshore administration and the High School Grade Reconfiguration Task Force have recommended the school board open the district’s new comprehensive high school, North Creek, with students in grades 9-11. Transitioning three grade levels would better meet the needs of high school students by providing greater access to academic programs, student leadership, extra- and co-curricular opportunities and a greater variety of athletic programs and options. Transitioning grades 9-11 would also utilize the new high school at 75 percent capacity, providing better facility flexibility with fewer temporary costs (e.g., required permits and placement of additional portables), less impact on over-enrollment at the current three high schools and increased long-term flexibility to the boundary adjustment process. In addition, transitioning grades 9-11 to North Creek High School would allow greater flexibility for the district’s waiver process.
