Miller announces partnership for fields

Metropolitan King County Councilmenber Louise Miller announced recently that the Northshore School District, the city of Woodinville, the Northshore Youth Soccer Association, and King County are working on a proposal to increase opportunities for athletic field use in the Northshore area.
   Miller's proposal calls for King County to work with the cities, the school district and the soccer association to add one athletic field, a children's play area and picnic shelter to East Norway Hill Park and work cooperatively to upgrade adjacent school facilities. The proposal also includes development of a plan to cooperatively operate and maintain the new facilities. Preliminary discussions have already occurred between the groups involved in the proposal.
   The new athletic fields would have an all-weather playing surface and lighting to maximize the amount of time they can be used.
