September Meeting Wrap-Up

Posted to News

The Association is Alive!

Wow! We had a fantastic meeting Tuesday night (September 23) with about 45 people showing up. At the meeting a number of topics of interest were identified for future discussion/speakers/followup. These topics included:

  • learning more about 185th Station Area Planning/Zoning,
  • connecting with Police on crime prevention
  • community emergency preparedness
  • community building activities/events
  • traffic/speeding,
  • economic development
  • supporting a sense of place/personality in North City

Best of all, a number of people volunteered to form a North City Leadership Group to follow up on ideas, advocate for the neighborhood and capitalize on the momentum started on Tuesday to get a Neighborhood Association re-established. They plan to meet on Tuesday, October 14 at 7 pm at Anderson House, 17201 15th Ave NE. If you would like to join the leadership group or just hear the discussion, join them!

Thank you to all who came. Mark your calendar for the next North City Neighborhood Meeting!

North City Business District Street Light and Signal Pole Replacement

Posted to News

Construction Coming Soon!

Over the past several years, the street light poles and signal poles within the North City Business District have experienced significant paint failure. After successful negotiations with the original construction contractor, all of the street light poles and signal poles will be replaced within the district at no cost to the City. The contractor assigned to do the work is Prime Electric.

Street light poles between NE 172nd St and 15th Pl NE (just north of 180th St NE) along with all of the signal poles will be replaced.

What to Expect?

With the construction, there will be a variety of impacts that will result from the removal and installation of the poles. Below is a general list of what you can expect:

  • Construction impacts: Construction activity (noise and equipment) will be visible along the corridor and will impact street/sidewalk to facilitate construction. Lane closures will be in place as needed.
  • Driveways: some driveways may require short term temporary closures. These closures will be coordinated in advance with each business as needed.
  • Parking (during construction): Street parking may be impacted and reduced in areas where the poles are being replaced. These impacts will be temporary and will be restored upon completion of the new pole installation.
  • Bus Stops: Bus stops may be temporarily impacted resulting in temporary relocations of stops.

Schedule

  • Construction Start: April 2014
  • Construction Completion: Anticipated May of 2014

Were You the Victim of a Burglary Between January 2012 and July 2013?

Posted to News

Were you the victim of a burglary between January 2012 and July 2013? If you were and you live somewhere between Mill Creek, Washington and Tigard, Oregon we may have property that was stolen from your burglary.

Detectives from the Sammamish Police Department and the King County Sheriff's Office are trying to find the owners of stolen property that was recovered last July after the arrest of a couple who admitted to committing dozens of burglaries between Tigard, Oregon and Mill Creek, Washington.

Krystal Sweetman, 27 of Puyallup and Steven Tipton, 27 of Tacoma were arrested last July after an investigation that revealed the couple had committed over 80 residential burglaries between January 2012 and July 2013. The couple sold many of the stolen items at area coin shops netting over $346,000 in the 18 month crime spree.

Detectives also discovered that the pair had a storage unit that was packed with property taken from the burglaries. Many of the stolen items from the storage unit have not been claimed and detectives are hoping to reunite victims with their property.

In January, Sweetman pled guilty to multiple charges and was sentenced to 36 months in prison and 36 months in community custody. Tipton is expected to plead later this month.

Detectives have photographed the unclaimed property and have provided a link to photos for the public to view. Detectives are asking anyone who was the victim of a burglary between January, 2012 and July, 2013 to look at the photos to see if any of the property belongs to you.

If you have questions please call 804-885-KCSO. Do not call other police department numbers. If you see property that you believe belongs to you follow the instructions on the link. You will be asked to provide the case number of your burglary and will need to provide some proof the item is yours.

If you have trouble accessing the site please try at another time. We expect the site to be inundated with viewers and access may be limited during the initial release of information.
