Update for the Week of 6/30/2014
From Debbie Tarry, Shoreline City Manager

City Hall, Spartan Recreation Center and the Shoreline Pool will be closed on Friday, July 4, in honor of the Independence Day holiday. Wishing you all a happy 4th and remember – fireworks are banned in Shoreline.

Council Meetings
Next Council meeting is July 14 as Council will be on break from June 30 through July 11!

Shoreline in the News
The 2014 Summer PUBLICworks Magazine featured Shoreline's use of goats as part of our vegetation management program.The article was written by Municipal Research Services Center.

Damage at Paramount Park Open Space
Last week someone vandalized the carved bench by the pond at the south end of the park in the natural area. This bench had been donated by the Paramount Park Neighborhood Group. Most of the bench was taken except the carved back. Because the bench was a custom design we will not be able to replace it with a similar bench, but we will install a traditional wood bench like we have in other park locations.

Staff Volunteers to pick blueberries

This year staff will be picking the blueberries at City Hall for the food bank at Hopelink. We are hoping that they will ripen by the week of July 7th!

Key Contacts from the Week
·         King County Councilmember Dembowski – Scott MacColl, Intergovernmental Program Manager, and I met with Councilmember Dembowski on Thursday. Our discussion included Metro Service in Shoreline both in the short-term and for the future with light rail and connections for 145th and our partner cities along SR 522. We emphasized how important it is to make the 145th a station connected with transit (not just cars). We asked him to make sure Metro keeps focused on 145th as a transit connector and not change that focus to 130th. Also discussed Point Wells, Seattle Public Utilities water system acquisition, and the Veteran’s Recognition structure proposed at City Hall.

This and That
·         July 17, Kruckeberg Garden Foundation Garden Party
·         Last week, the Park Board reviewed the design for the art work that will go in at Sunset School Park later this year.
