"We have a plan designed, materials donated, and volunteers," said a local youth. "We just need the land." A skateboard workshop was recently held for the youths to plan their design of the skate park.
Ron Chapman, who has been working with the local youth on the park, told the council that skateboarding is as important as baseball or football. "We owe it to our kids to provide recreational facilities," he said, asking the council to seriously consider the request.
"We will provide training and information on how to set up a childcare business," said Tamara Franklin. This will include paying for fees, such as licensing and CPR training, determining changes needed in a home to satisfy requirements, and providing classes in the Valley, she said.
Franklin stressed the need for new facilities, stating that current childcare facilities are at capacity. Sara Perry, coordinator of the Duvall center, said 30 people have volunteered there.
"Discharge is going to have to change," said Light. "For the months of August, September, and October, we cannot meet the criteria that are in place to ensure the health of the Snoqualmie River and to satisfy salmon requirements."
Prior to the next council meeting, there will be a discussion on sewage capacity studies.
