During the 2016 Holidays Margaret and I had extra time to enjoy walking around Edmonds, enjoying our parks and trails.  We bundled up extra thick when it snowed and had more than one fire to warm us up when we returned home.

We hope you built some wonderful memories this Christmas and had time to relax.

Our friends came over to celebrate our oldest son’s graduation from college the day before Christmas Eve.  Along with visits from our family visiting from out of the area will be a lasting memory for me this year

I didn’t know this about Medical Professions in our area!

Posted on: July 5th, 2016 by Edmonds

This month the guest speaker for Snohomish County Cities networking meeting will be Matt Smith.  He provides development data to help cities make decision for their future.  He claims that there are more Medical profession jobs in our area than aerospace.  Who knew!

“The Seattle area is regularly ranked among the top ten life science communities in the United States, in league with the cities of Boston, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, San Diego and Minneapolis.  While the biotech activity in Seattle’s South Lake Union gets its’ fair share of media coverage, you will find over 4000 life science jobs in Bothell.  Snohomish County is more than aerospace.  Matt Smith, Industry and Resource Development Director for Economic Alliance Snohomish County as well as Board Chair for the Biomedical Manufacturing Innovation Zone, will share his thoughts on how and why this works.”

Wetland Regulation

Posted on: April 12th, 2016 by Edmonds

I admit that this post borders on geeky, but hear me out.  Water has to go somewhere once it falls from the sky.  Streams and rivers take it to lakes and oceans, but many times it stops in a wetland.  Its in those places that animals of all kinds meet up for a meal and/or become a meal.  Here’s a link to regulations for wetland in the State of Washington.  Click here.

As the City of Edmonds wrestles with Critical Areas in our city, keep in mind we’re not just talking about the environment, we’re also talking about how we preserve what we have as our population increases.  For many of us, outdoor recreation refreshes us like nothing else.  Being able to walk through the woods or along the waterfront right from our front door is a rare treat we dare not forget to appreciate.
