The Windermere Foundation is now accepting donations for the Oso, Washington Relief Fund.

We are deeply saddened by the events that have unfolded over the last week due to the landslide in Oso, Washington. We have heard from many of you who wish to support and provide emergency relief for those that have lost their homes and loved ones. 100% of the funds designated to the Windermere Foundation's Oso, Washington Relief Fund will go directly to the families affected by the slide, through the Darrington Emergency Task Force for immediate assistance.

You can donate online at https://store.windermere.com/content/foundation-donation. The Windermere Foundation will match the first $5,000 donated.

A special thanks to the Windermere office in nearby Arlington, owned by Gene Bryson, for raising awareness and starting the fundraising effort.

Our hearts go out to all the families affected by this disaster.

Thank you for your support.

Everett Riverfront Redevelopement News

 

From the city of Everett's Website:

What's New

Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing on February 11, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers located at 3002 Wetmore Avenue in Everett to address revisions to the Development Agreement in response to Planning Commission and citizen feedback received to date.

On Jan. 7, 2014, Planning Commission held a public hearing to address changes to the Development Agreement proposed by Polygon.  No action was taken on the proposed changes, which include a request to change the development on the Simpson Pad from a combination of single-family detached, single-family attached and multiple-family housing to single-family detached only.  Planning Commission has requested more information.    

Background

The proposed action includes construction of a mixed-use commercial/residential development, shoreline and habitat restoration, and rehabilitation of a former, mostly industrial site.  The proposed Master Plan includes the construction of up to 900,000 square feet of mixed commercial use; 200,000 square feet of hotel space; and up to 1,400 residential units (multi- and single-family).  The ultimate mix of uses constructed will be determined by market demand and the land use capacity of the site (type, location, and size of uses and structures, and infrastructure capacity).

Addendum No. 5 to the FEIS was issued on January 2, 2014. It addressed the proposal by Polygon to make amendments to the Development Agreement.  Addendum No. 4 to the FEIS was issued on October 3, 2013.  It addresses new information related to proposed fill heights on the Simpson Pad, secondary fire access to the Simpson Pad, and agreements related to actions to be taken to ensure no net loss of wetland functions surrounding the Simpson Pad

A Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was issued on December 21, 2007, and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was issued on June 11, 2008.  Since 2008, the City has issued four Addenda to the Everett Riverfront Redevelopment FEIS to address new information. 

If you have any questions on the proposal or would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact Dave Koenig at 425-257-8736 or Mary Cunningham at 425-257-7131.
