Controversial Republican-led Senate coalition aims to split power Democrat Rodney Tom, 48th District Senator, joins Republican-led coalition BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@kirklandreporter.com

T

wo Democratic state senators announced Monday they will join an unprecedented Republican-led Senate coalition that aims to split power between the two parties. The Majority Coali-

tion Caucus proposes to have six Democrat-led committees, six committees led by Republicans and three panels that are evenly split between the two parties. Those committees will have no more than a one-vote majority. Sen. Rodney Tom (D-Bellevue), who will serve as the coalition’s

majority leader, said during a news conference in Olympia that “the public is hungry for us to come together, to work together in a collaborative manner and that’s exactly what this coalition is trying to accomplish. We want a cooperative relationship and making sure that we work across party lines.” Sen. Tim Sheldon, who is also a conservative Democrat, will serve as the body’s president pro

Conviction in Kirkland road-rage incident

Council makes final decision on Potala Village zoning

BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ

At least one dozen opponents of the Potala Village project dressed in red at the last Kirkland City Council meeting of the year Tuesday to express dissatisfaction on an unclear zoning code that would affect development in the Moss Bay neighborhood, among others. But in the end, the group walked away with a compromised victory. On a 4-3 vote, the Kirkland City Council voted to amend the zoning code, which caps density for Neighborhood Business (BN) zones at 48 units per acre. The amendment also exempted the 25 percent bonus for developers looking to provide affordable housing. Council members and residents alike were shocked to discover an [ more POTALA page 13 ]

Have a water efficient H2Oliday! When preparing for meals and parties this holiday season, you can use much more water than your normal, everyday use. Running your tap continuously while preparing food or washing dishes wastes water. You can use more than two gallons of water every minute your tap is running. That’s a lot when you’re cooking a big meal for extended family members and friends! Here are two ways to reduce your water and energy use over the holidays: •

scrape dirty dishes instead of using water to rinse them before you put them in the dishwasher.

if you don’t use a dishwasher, fill the sink with a few gallons of soapy wash water, clean your dishes, and put them aside. then rinse them all together afterward.

either of these simple practices could save 10 gallons of water each time you wash dishes. if every american household reduced

their water use by 10 gallons on just one meal this holiday season, we could save more than 1 billion gallons of water, as well as the energy and materials used to pump and treat tap water. For more water saving tips, visit the Cascade Water alliance website at cascadewater.org.

And don’t forget these winter water tips: Winterize your pipes make sure that all outdoor spigots are winterized; this could avoid pipes from freezing, bursting and losing water.

Insulate insulate hot water pipes to reduce the amount of water that must be run in order to get hot water to the faucet.

Locate your master water shut off valve also, remember to locate your master water shut off valve in your house — mark it for quick identification. if a water pipe were to break, it could cause flooding and tremendous water loss.

Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, hose connections, and faucets even a tiny leak can translate into thousands of gallons of wasted water over a short period of time. repair or replace any equipment leaking water immediately.

Use shut-off nozzles on hoses Use nozzles which completely turn off the water when you are not using it; they also help to more effectively direct water than using your finger to create a stream.

Kirkland Children’s School set to expand to keep up with early childhood education demand BY RAECHEL DAWSON rdawson@kirklandreporter.com

A new addition to the Kirkland Children’s School was recently approved by the Kirkland City Council and Houghton Community Council that will include three additional classrooms, nine parking stalls and a rain garden for children to learn. Director Rachel Mikulec has been working with parents, city council members and the community for nearly four years on the expansion of the school and she describes the support as overwhelming. “Houghton Council members (Lora) Hein and (Betsy) Pringle actually said they had never seen a ‘love fest’ like it before in response to all the support letters and council meeting attendees,” said Mikulec in an email. “Yesterday, Councilman Sternoff said Kirkland Children’s School is an asset to the community. The process has truly been awesome on all levels.” The school, formerly the Red Farm School, was founded by Rosalind Simmons in the late 1960s in Kirkland’s Houghton neighborhood. It is among

four other schools located on the Eastside that use an early childhood educational approach by incorporating curriculums as early as 1 year old. And this approach is likely why the school currently has a one-in-a-half to a two-year wait list for the toddler and preschool programs - one of the reasons the school of about 100 will expand. “I think parents have become more aware of what their early childhood education options are, and they are doing a lot more research on schools before enrolling,” Mikulec said. When Mikulec began working at Kirkland Children’s School about seven years ago, she said the school was full with students but did not have a wait list. Now, nearly 300 students and families eagerly await a phone call to let them know a spot has been opened. Mikulec speculates its popularity has been from word of mouth - almost all students live in Kirkland or their parents work in the city - as a way to find schools that offer science and music lessons for toddlers, among other features.

“There was a point in time it was just kind of, drop my child off and pick my child up at the end of the day and know that there was a good meal, they were read to, they were held and their diaper was changed,” Mikulec said. “Now, those things are assumed, basic care is assumed. They want to know: Was their child nourished? Did they have educational opportunities? Were they engaged? Were they encouraged to explore? They definitely want to know different things now than they did back in the day.” Jonni Ressler, a parent of two children who attended the school, agrees that the early childhood approach was necessary. “They each entered first grade with the confidence and skills to take on the challenge of grade school,” Ressler said. “Additionally, they helped us identify special needs in our eldest son, which enabled us to engage with the right support and therapies aimed specifically at those with Asperger’s. Although they don’t specialize in this, they were able to work so closely with him and with such a small ratio that

their initial feedback and assessments were of great value to us.” While the wait list may seem daunting, Mikulec encourages families to call back every three months to check in and communicate with staff if they are still interested. The 3,400-squarefoot building will allow the school to take on about 60 additional students, which will help curb the wait list, but not quite enough. “When you’re starting at the number we’re starting at, it’s significant for sure but in terms of the need in the community, it’s not going to put a dent in it,” she said. Nonetheless, children who do attend can also look forward to outdoor classrooms, a rain garden and themed play areas such as an edible garden, gnome village or a potential climbing structure. Although all student’s curriculums have environmental education, Mikulec hopes this will further put an emphasis on outdoor learning. “We believe children should be outdoors,” Mikulec said. “They need to have those real life experiences of getting dirty, falling down,

getting a scratch on the knee, feeling things, getting wet, getting hot and sweaty in the summer - all of those things.” However, the monthly tuition of this private school ranges from $610 to $1,515 per child and is based on the age of the child and how

many days he or she attends. Mikulec hopes construction will begin in a few months so the building will be finished in August but notes sometimes unexpected things can come up along the way.

‘Cliff’ solution: taxes, spending

T

he U.S. is poised to fall off a “fiscal cliff” on Jan. 1 unless Democrats and Republicans find a way to avoid automatic spending cuts and tax increases. Yawn. It’s not that we don’t believe – sort of – the doomsayers who tout what a catastrophe this would be to the nation’s economy. It’s just that we don’t think rational people – yes, that means politicians – are so stupid as to let that happen. So, some time – by the end of this year or shortly after the start of 2013 – politicians will force themselves to come up with an answer. When they do, it must contain both spending cuts and tax increases. The U.S. debt now stands at more than $16 trillion. To put that in more personal terms, that’s more than $52,000 on the shoulders of every man, woman and child in this country. But, instead of fixing this, we’ve passed the problem on to future generations. That has to stop. There’s no question that higher taxes will be necessary to help pare down this problem. And the pain needs to start with families whose income is $250,000 and

higher. Higher taxes, while unpleasant, won’t have a debilitating impact on their quality of life. That’s not the case with many in the middle class who have little left over after paying their monthly bills. However, the middle class, too, needs to help fix this mess, perhaps in the form of fewer or more limited deductions. Spending also needs to be reined in. Govern-

ment trying to be everything to everyone is one reason why we’re in this fix. It would be best if all this were accomplished before the end of the year. However, given the political stakes, that may be unlikely. If we have to jump, at least we’ll be holding hands.

Affordable housing should not be driving force for density What an insult to the citizens of Kirkland. At the council meeting on Tuesday, adoption of Ordinance 4388 establishes 48 units per acre, which can be increased by as much as 25 percent for a total of 60 units per acre. The 25 percent increase should be applied to the previously existing density. In the case of Potala Village, it should be 12 units per acre, an existing density of those who live there that was adopted and used for the past 24 years. It should be the driving force, not affordable housing. The staff report mentions the densities discussed at previous meetings. Any of that information could be used when deciding which density to adopt. Staff has misquoted affordable housing provisions. Previous staff reports included Kirkland’s figures on affordable housing. They say that Kirkland already has more affordable housing on the Eastside. We already have complied with the Growth Management Act. So why is the Planning Department pushing for greater density that does not consider existing densities? Are all neighborhoods willing to accept higher densities of low cost housing? The answer is contortion. The Planning Department has not and does not use all the provisions of the GMA to satisfy the needs of the community. Yet, it feeds the council with hard-to-swallow input. If the council disagrees, they need to go.

up … it’s time! I am upstairs right now in our closet looking at my husband’s T-shirt inventory. At last count he has 22 T-shirts, none of which he should ever wear in public. He cannot remember my exact birthday day nor our anniversary, but he can remember every last detail of how long he has had each shirt, which ones were free (those are his favorites) and sordid stories about each rip, tear and stain, all with great excitement! For those new readers of my column, you must know that I mercilessly but lovingly tease my husband of 33 years. He is a great sport about it (well, most of the time anyway). Is he allowed to mercilessly tease me? Heck no. Ahhh, the inequities of a happy and successful marriage. Okay, back on point. I think it’s time to buy my husband a couple of new T-shirts and a surprise gift that I saw when I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down and talk with Regan Montano. She, along with her husband, Marty, are the proud owners of Jake’s Kirkland, the Life is good Shoppe on Lake Street in downtown Kirkland.

ed to put their talents to use. They will be performing holiday favorites with the intention of reaching their $3,500 fund raising goal. The title of the event is “Christmas Music for the Cure.” After four months of planning and practice, they are ready to hold what they hope to be a fun and successful fundraiser. Planning and preparing for Christmas Music for the Cure has taught these students life skills and the importance of giving back to the community. “It started out as an idea of a fun way to support the American Cancer Society. It’s great to be able to be performing music, and know that it is benefiting such a great cause at the same time” said

high school junior and piano player Jeffery Ni. Not only will the community be able to enjoy great jazz holiday music, but they will be able to leave with the same warm feeling that the performers have, knowing that they have supported a worthy cause. “It’s good to know that by playing jazz music, I’m supporting a cause larger then myself,” said high school junior and saxophone player Logan Heine. Heine, and seven other high school students, will be filling the air with the sounds of Christmas from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Dec. 19-21; from 3:30-8:30 p.m. Dec. 22, and 12:30-4:30 p.m. Dec. 23 outside Hectors Restaurant, 112 Lake St. South, Kirkland.

Apartment Homes, the City of Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department and Kirkland Dog Off-Leash Group (KDOG) collaborated to develop the 8-foot wide pathway across city property and a new entry gate into the large dog area. The address of the park is 11225 N.E. 120th St. (at the corner of N.E. 120th St. and 113 Ave. N.E.). On-street parking is available on N.E. 120th St. “We have been very fortunate to have the financial support of Weidner Apartment Homes in building this pathway. It could not have happened nearly this fast without their grant to create safer access to the park. We also want to recognize and thank United Way of King County, Micro-

soft Corporation and the over 120 dedicated volunteers from several Microsoft business units who worked on the new pathway during United Way’s Day of Caring and other work parties in September and October.

Volunteering Can Be Easy and Rewarding For many of us, December is a month when our thoughts and concerns for the less fortunate in our communities really come to the forefront. This is no doubt due in part to the holidays we celebrate and due in part to the seasonal weather. Cold, wet and windy days remind us how tough life can sometimes be. For an organization like Food Lifeline, the less fortunate are always at the forefront of their thoughts and efforts. Each year in November and December QFC is proud to support Food Lifeline in the Puget Sound area and the Oregon Food Bank in Oregon with a twomonth campaign to collect both food and cash for these organizations. Our campaign is called Bringing Hope To the Table. The food and money that is accumulated helps sustain these organizations and their clients for months after the holidays are over.

Much of the great work that Food Lifeline does would not be possible without the assistance of a large group of volunteers. Nora Peters, a Grocery Rescue Program Representative at Food Lifeline notes, “All non-profits agree that volunteers who give their skills and time are a precious resource and are really the backbone of our operations. This is even more true at Food Lifeline where every year over 9,000 volunteers help us sort and repack food donations, help with administrative tasks in our office, and with food and fund drives. These volunteers are the equivalent of 20 full-time employees!” Many volunteers return often to help Food Lifeline, but the door is always open for people who want to donate even just a few hours of their time. As the Food Lifeline website notes, “Businesses, schools, social clubs, faith-based groups, service

organization and youth groups all pitch in to help feed the hungry.” Nora stated, “Volunteering isn’t just good for us and the people we serve – it’s also good for your health! Studies have shown that volunteering improves one’s mental and emotional well-being, expands our social safety nets, staves off depression, and encourages participating youth to avoid risky behaviors. Also, while much of the motivation for volunteering is altruistic, it is also a smart career move. You can bring your unique set of skills to the table and teach fellow volunteers, and you can gain experience,

connections, and hone marketable skills in communication and leadership. What’s more, volunteering can just be plain old fun!” Volunteers age 6 or older are welcome to come as individuals, as a family, or as a group of friends/co-workers/members of a place of worship/sports team, etc. To learn more about Food Lifeline’s volunteer opportunities, please visit their website www.foodlifeline.org/volunteer or send an email to the Volunteer Team at volunteer@ fll.org.

Residents disapprove of large Lake Street development Design Review Board to hold meeting on development Dec. 17

S

ome residents in downtown Kirkland oppose the construction of a large building that would replace the current parking lot behind Hector’s and Milagro Cantina with roughly 189,500 square feet of parking, office, restaurant and retail space. Several residents of the Portsmith Condominiums have expressed to city officials that the size of the building, known as the Lake Street Place development, will overwhelm the small-town look and feel of downtown Kirkland. The condominiums are located directly behind the proposed development, near Merrill Gardens and many have a view of Lake Washington. “The proposal embraces a Costco-sized commercial building right on Lake Street,” said Brian Rohrback, a Portsmith resident, who says the project’s wall on the east would be 14 feet away from the condos. The Lake Street Place development’s property is owned by Stuart McLeod and the proposal seeks to add restaurant space to Hector’s and the Kirkland Waterfront

Market building on the ground floor, while creating retail space under four levels of 252 stalls of enclosed parking. A sixth level of office space will cap the parking garage and three levels of office space will sit atop Hector’s and the Kirkland Waterfront Market. On some parts of the development, rooftop decks and terraces will be used to grow herbs and produce for the restaurants. The building will reach 55 feet at its highest point. This is the building’s third version and second developer since it was first proposed in 2007. Former architect Mark Smedley with Stock and Associates originally proposed underground parking for Lake Street Place, but after Rick Chesmore with Chesmore/Buck Architecture took over, they soon discovered it would not work and were forced to add the four-level garage. “When we got ahold of the parking, subterranean parking was not an option,” said Chesmore. “There’d been a challenge of getting some tieback agreements with Portsmith (to dig close to their property).”

An architect’s rendering of the Lake Street Place development, which proposes 189,500 square feet of parking, office, restaurant and retail space. COURTESY CITY OF KIRKLAND congestion in downtown Kirkland as well as jeopardize the safety of our senior citizens as they come and go from Merrill Gardens,” said Hart. Rohrback has the same concern. “As my mother lives in Merrill Gardens (retirement home) next door, I dislike the idea of having 10 times the traffic or more traversing her doorstep,” he said. Regala said it is still too early to determine this impact and that traffic and vehicular safety will have to be addressed as a part of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review. Chesmore said the parking garage will be available for restaurant, retail and office workers during business hours on weekdays but the public can use it on nights and weekends, which could be a benefit to the parking problem downtown Kirkland drivers often face. It is unknown at this time

if it will be paid parking or not. McLeod declined to comment about the status of the project other than the process was going well. He agreed to speak to the Reporter after the final Design Review Board (DRB) meeting on Dec. 17. Hart and Rohrback say they would feel most comfortable with this development if parking was somehow able to return underground, buildings were kept at three stories and overall gave “the residents on the north, the east and the south some breathing room,” said Rohrback. “I would like to see a proposal that is more in keeping with the drive along Lake Street; an office tower does not fit the locale,” said Rohrback. “A scaled-down proposal that does not wall-in existing residents can work.” Chesmore said if the DRB gives them the okay they could work to acquire

the building permit by the middle of next year or if they decide to phase the project a permit could be secured as early as March or April. Kirklanders can expect the courtyard to stay put and Chesmore adds that the extra office tenants could actually do some good. “This should be an exciting project. I think the scaled back version since 2007 is a much better building,” Chesmore said. “There’s not a lot of office space in Kirkland and if you put office space there, (the workers) become patrons of these smaller stores.”

More information The Lake Street Place development will have a Design Review Board meeting at 7 p.m. Dec. 17. For more information, visit www.kirklandwa.gov/depart/Planning/ DRB_Meeting_Information. htm or contact senior planner Jon Regala at 425-587-3255 or JRegala@kirklandwa.gov.

Senior Planner Jon Regala confirmed this by adding that the property owner, McLeod, pursued getting some easements from the Portsmith property but they never went through. The Reporter attempted to contact managers at Portsmith but was unsuccessful. Portsmith resident Sandi Hart said she is concerned about the parking garage’s switch, mostly due to its scale and because she feels there hasn’t been as much public outreach on this change. But Chesmore said they are trying to accommodate Portsmith residents and pedestrians by working with the Design Review Board to put in lighting, landscaping, a top-story setback and are deliberating on the material and color of the walls. “If the garage wasn’t there, it would be office space. We’ll make the building look nice but if there was office space or multi-family (residential use), it would be just as high,” Chesmore said. “There would be other spaces there with windows looking out to their windows.” However, Hart feels the parking garage’s entrance on Main Street could impact the neighborhood. “The location of the parking garage access will undoubtedly cause additional

building would have 6,000 square feet of retail space, plus retail parking. Since then, the council has imposed four moratoriums against development on the Lake Street BN zone. Dargey filed a lawsuit against the city in May that sought an injunction against the moratorium, which is still active. The council is currently in mediation with the developers and concerned neighbors, who formed the coalition STOP (Support the Ordinances and Plans). Although the council did not agree to a settlement that Dargey recently put forth, the council did agree with Kirkland citizens to revisit a 48 unit per acre limit at their Nov. 20 council meeting. Many residents initially hoped zoning would cap density at 12 units per acre and the Planning Commission even recommended 36 units per acre or less, but Councilwoman Amy Walen said the people came together with “a sincere desire to

affordable housing bonus provision that would have allowed developers in the BN zones to increase density by including affordable housing units in their project under a 25 percent bonus. Deputy Mayor Doreen Marchione said that the bonus provision “caused quite a stir” with the council and citizens when it was outlined in the council packet. If the council had not taken action, a development with six affordable housing units in a 48 unit per acre dwelling would be allowed an additional 12 bonus units for a total density of 60 units. “I think what the council did tonight was to preserve the spirit and the numbers that were discussed and agreed upon the last time around,” said Tom Grimm, a STOP advocate. “I think the council had not had any experience with the 25 percent (provision) as was stated tonight.” Karen Levenson, a backer of STOP, expressed to the

Reporter this could be the end for neighbors. “I think we may be done with the Potala Village controversy - at least as far as citizen involvement with the Planning Commission and the City Council,” said Levenson in an email, noting that litigation between the city, neighbors and developer is still ongoing. During the council meeting, Justin Stewart spoke on behalf of developer Lobsang Dargey and said the Potala project’s process so far has been “disheartening.” He said the developer has spent much time and money trying to move the project forward. When Dargey initially submitted the project proposal last year, it sparked a controversy between more than 1,000 nearby residents, the developer and the city over the project’s scale and neighborhood impacts. Potala Village is a proposed 143 apartment unit project on a 1.2 acre lot with a view of Lake Washington in the Moss Bay neighborhood. The

It’s All About

SERVICE

Fast. Professional. Friendly.

Providing Complete Plumbing & Heating Services in King County Since 1964 excellent skills and excellent attitudes. We’ve found them, trained them and are getting great feedback from our customers. It’s very exciting to add this new dimension to our business, heating and air conditioning, and of course the same great 24 hour service.

Q/A | with David Brown – Owner, Fox Plumbing & Heating “There are lots of great reviews from Q customers on your web:

site – what’s different about Fox technicians and service that brings such good results?”

A

: Well, I go back to my roots, the fact that I built my skills and a great career, supported my family, and created living wage jobs, invested in my community all through being a tradesman and continually honing my skills. At Fox Plumbing and Heating our work force is the best trained in the business. The equipment and technology is constantly changing and new products are always being introduced, so we are continually training our crews. There are many fine people who with the right training and support develop in to fantastic employees with superior skills. When you invest in your employees, you are investing in your customers. Any business owner knows that employee turnover is expensive and that your employees are a reflection of who you are as a business owner. My name and reputation are all over Fox Plumbing and Heating and I believe in personal and corporate integrity…it’s simply a core value of this company, reflected in our mission statement, staff training and the way we treat our customers.

else sets you apart from other plumband heating companies in the area?” Qing“What A :

: We’re focused on the right things, great service and great work. I’d just like to ask people to make sure to have Fox give them an estimate on their next plumbing or heating job and see in writing one of the differences. We will give you a fair estimate in a timely fashion and we have the best written warranties in the business. Our customer service is so superior to our

competitors that we keep most of our customers for life. 80% of our new customers come from current customer referrals, I’m proud of this and plan to keep doing what works…caring about people, doing professional work.

Q “Do you have any specials?” A :

: Glad you asked and of course we do! We want to introduce as many people as possible to our new heating and air conditioning services so we have a complete HVAC tune up for just $99, this is a limited time offer. No one wants their furnace not to work properly as the days and nights get colder, it’s also a good time to get the air conditioning looked at, we had such a beautiful summer folks used their equipment more this year. The thing we want people to know about Fox Plumbing and Heating is that we’ve been here since 1964 and we’ll be here long into the future because we are committed to helping people save money and delivering great service. We always have solid money saving specials, but what’s really special about Fox is how we do business every day with integrity and professionalism, our customers will tell you.

heard about your Customer Referhow does it work?” Qral“I’veProgram, A :

: Well I continually review my business, checking the data, always looking at where my customers come from, because of course we want to continue to grow and invest our advertising dollars in programs that expand our customer base. Through this data analysis we could see that 80% of our new customers were coming from our current customers. I wanted to put some energy into a Customer Referral Program both to thank our customers as well as to build business. I also operate on the “keep it simple” philosophy knowing that what people really need and want is cash, not points or some other confusing so-called bonus. So very simply, you refer Fox Plumbing and Heating and you are entered to win $500 cash. We hold the drawings twice a year in March and September and the more you refer your friends, relatives and colleagues, the more chances you have to win. We then take pictures and tell their story on our website, with their permission, both to honor them and to spread the word about Fox Plumbing and Heating.

“You just introduced new heating and services – what’s included?” Qcooling A :

: The expansion into heating, furnaces and air conditioning is a direct result of customer demand, our phones were ringing off the hook with requests, one month last winter we received over 100 calls for HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) services. I wanted to expand in this area, but wouldn’t do it until I had the right team on board. I mean what I say and it took some time to find the right people with

James arrived within 3 hours of my call for service. He quickly determined the problem and did a work around to get me back online. Then the next day at the exact appointment time he replaced the tank. Prompt, Professional, Clean & Neat. Good equipment and a reasonable price. Best service contractor I have used in 30 years.
