Plans for South Prairie, Tukwila and Wilkeson move forward

Thanks to great work by staff and elected leaders, comprehensive plans for South Prairie, Tukwila and Wilkeson are on their way to full certification. The plans were previously conditionally certified, and the jurisdictions have since worked to meet the conditions for full certification. The Growth Management Policy Board recommended full certification at its meeting today.

Tricks and Treats in North Bend

The City of North Bend debuted its new Downtown Plaza project in style with a Halloween ribbon cutting and community event. Shout out to Mayor Hearing who went all in with his costume! The project improved sections of North Bend Way and Main Avenue in the downtown historical business district to create a unique space that includes a traffic calming environment with a curbless intersection and a larger walkable plaza area. The project received $1.7 million in PSRC funds. Congratulations, North Bend!
