Sept. 5th open house debuts plan for downtown corridor

WOODINVILLE - The sidewalks at the intersection of 140th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 175th Street have been plagued by the ambitious root system of the London plane trees, and the road pavement has been damaged from high traffic volumes.
   This intersection has been the recipient of recent upgrades, including a biological assessment pursuant to the Endangered Species Act, several evaluations of the trees and root systems conducted by certified arborists, installation of curb along 140th Avenue and the placement of a water main line by the Woodinville Water District.
   The city's Tree Board has developed a draft Master Streetscape Plan that envisions an attractive gateway accommodating pedestrians, vehicles and trees. Public comment on the plan is welcomed at an Open House set for Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Woodinville City Hall, 17301 - 133rd Ave. NE.
   Copies of the draft plan will be available upon request after Aug. 31.
   The plan will be presented at the Sept 5. Planning Commission meeting (7 p.m.) and at the Sept. 6 Parks and Recreation Commission meeting (7 p.m.).
