Help needed to control the weeds

Submitted by: James Graybill

We have completed a survey of the aquatic weed situation around the edge of the lake and need help pulling some of the weeds. Our fear as always, is that the weeds will spread throughout the lake and interfere with our boating and swimming. We have been aggressive in years past at removing the plants by hand and that method has worked well.

The plants we found today looked weak and should be easy to deal with. But we need your help.

We will meet at Carl Markings’ dock (21516 NE Lachenview) at 9am and hope to be done by 11am tomorrow, June 26, Sunday June 27 and next Saturday July 3. Sorry for the short notice.We will need one or two more boats and many walk-ons. We have all the tools necessary.

Thanks for your help. Call me if you have questions.

Proposed Ordinance XX-2010 Transportation Priorities

Action Requested

Recommend adoption of Ordinance # XX by the City Council.


Fairview maintains an inventory of needed projects on city and county roads in the adopted Transportation System Plan.  However, those projects have not been previously prioritized.   With increasing scarcity of road funding, major land use changes in the area, and road built road improvements, comes the need to consider the nature of road needs and their timing.   There are approximately 10.8 miles of county roads in the City of Fairview, which include:

● Marine Drive  ● Sandy Boulevard

● Fairview Parkway ● 223rd Avenue

● Halsey Street  ● Glisan Street

● Blue Lake Road

The proposed plan amendments address safety and other deficiencies on county roads within the City of Fairview to help guide future decision making for major road improvements.  The following section lays out the legal context for transportation planning and the proposed amendments.
