From The Mill Creek City Manager’s Desk: The City Has No Plan to Displace Businesses

Ken Armstrong, Mill Creek City Manager, responds to a September 2013 article in the Mill Creek View that "significantly misled Mill Creek residents and the tenant businesses located in Maple Leaf Square."

The most recent edition of the Mill Creek View (Volume XVI, Issue 19) contained an article entitled “Plan for a new $20 million civic campus for Mill Creek,” which purports to describe the City’s intentions regarding new public facilities and economic development.  I appreciate the View helping to start the conversation about economic development and long-term planning in Mill Creek.

Unfortunately, the article has significantly misled Mill Creek residents and the tenant businesses located in Maple Leaf Square.  I take this opportunity to address the facts associated with this subject.

Everett School District announces second round of community bond planning meetings

Following the September 11th and 12th focus groups about high school needs, the September 16th and 18th open house sessions look at school construction needs for all grades in order to plan for a voter-approved 2014 bond issue.

In the next decade, an extra 1,400 students are expected to be attending Everett Public Schools. That would push the number of students enrolled to more than 20,000. Most of that growth is happening in the south end of the district where construction of single-family homes and apartments has resumed.
