Berg preferred to listen during the brainstorming sessions at the Tulalip Resort on June 18, which were complimented with a review of the two prior community engagement events on May 14 and 16, and spent most of her time during the June 17 Board meeting introducing her team, which includes a few familiar faces in new roles. “It’s not just me who’s coming on board, but a number of new staff members,” said Berg, who’s retained Ray Houser, former executive director of teaching and learning, as her assistant superintendent. “I don’t have anywhere near the energy level of Ray,” she added, before introducing Cinco Delgado, former principal of Ridgecrest Elementary in the Shoreline School District, as the new executive director of teaching and learning in Houser’s stead.

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville’s citizens seem to be split evenly on what should be done with 84th Street (also known as Getchell Hill Road) and 88th Street (also known as Ingraham Boulevard) in the wake of a neighborhood meeting to solicit public input on June 17. City of Marysville Public Works Director Kevin Nielsen explained that the original plan for Ingraham Boulevard was that it would become the primary east/west arterial between State Route 9 and Interstate 5, while 84th Street between Ingraham Boulevard and 67th Avenue would be downgraded from an arterial to a local access street. However, at least half of the local residents who attended the June 17 public meeting had other ideas, according to Nielsen. “It was just about the most 50/50 split I’ve ever seen,” Nielsen said. “Half the residents wanted 84th to stay open as an arterial, while the other half were more inclined to see it reduced to a local access road. It was pretty divided.” To that end, the city had already supplied more than a dozen different options for dealing with SEE OPTIONS, PAGE 2 812844 WS
