Arlington City Council addresses variety of issues


At last week’s workshop meeting, Arlington City Council learned more about the new horizontal mixed use zoning strategy that will be presented to the public this spring, according to Marc Hayes, permit manager.

They also reviewed a revised proposal for tourism grant funding from the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee with some minor changes from the original proposal that was sent back to committee in December. A vote is expected on the grants on Monday, Feb. 6, when council will vote on a scope of work for Shockey Planning Group in the update of the city’s comprehensive plans for water, sewer and transportation.

Council also reviewed last week preparations for the upcoming Ride to Remember Oso, on March 19.

Council is likely to approve next week a short closure of Olympic Avenue in the morning, from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m., for a ceremonial start of the 28-mile ride on SR 530, when 43 cyclists will depart each minute, in honor of the number of people lost in the landslide.

Council is also expected to approve next week an inter-local agreement with the town of Darrington and Snohomish County for insurance purposes for the day-long event. Snohomish County is presenting a shorter, family ride on the Whitehorse Trail from Fortson to Darrington and Darrington is presenting the Celebration of Strong Communities event, at the east end of both rides in Old School Park.

Another street closure is in the works on 192nd Street NE, for a second annual car show on May 20, presented by Peter Harrett of Top Secret Customs and Restorations at 6205 192nd Street NE #2. Harrett expects 100-200 cars and is asking that 192nd Street be closed from 59th Avenue east to 62nd Ave NE.

This week, council was scheduled to meet on the fifth Monday of the month with management from Cascade Valley Hospital and the Arlington School District Monday evening, Jan. 30 at Byrnes Performing Arts Center at Arlington High School.
