Cityhood for Maltby?
Rep. Dave Schmidt (R, Dist. 44) will be talking to Maltby area residents about the ins and outs of incorporation Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m., at the Maltby Community Center, 8711 206th Ave. SE.
Encouraged to attend are "residents who may have reached the point where the push-pull of county and City of Woodinville politics leave them wanting to preserve their identity," spokespeople said.
The Maltby "employment area," home of the Maltby Cafe, some galleries and other businesses, plus about 6,000 residents, lies just north of Woodinville in Snohomish County. In preliminary proposals, the area would cover six to eight square miles and has been compared with Arlington.
