MY CITY IS REDMOND 2013 / REDMOND REPORTER

Message from your mayor Redmond has changed a lot since I was 5 years old. In 1970, the population was about 16,000 and there was one stop light in the middle of town. I attended kindergarten at the brand new Ben Rush Elementary and received my haircuts from Hill’s Barbershop next to the IGA grocery store. Most children’s dads worked for Boeing and they all returned home at 5:15 p.m. Today, Redmond houses a population of more than 55,000 people. Ben Rush will open its “new” school this September. And Mr. Hill’s son, Mike, announced his retirement last February. In 1970, Redmond was already home to Rocket Research (now Aerojet), but has since added Physio-Control, Genie Industries, Nintendo of America and Microsoft, to name a few. More than 79,000 jobs exist in Redmond with an average wage of more than $90,000. Many households have at least one high-tech worker, if not more. How is the city managing throughout this transition? Economic development and growth will come whether we are ready as a community or not. If we don’t manage it well, growth could sweep through every neighborhood in the city. Instead, and consistent with community input, we are focusing growth in our urban centers of downtown and Overlake to preserve the character of our existing neighborhoods. By strategically investing the city’s infrastructure dollars, we are channeling development to those areas where we can provide the urban infrastructure to responsibly support it, as per the city’s Comprehensive Plan. In doing so, we are creating new neighborhoods that add vibrancy and provide more retail, housing and restaurant choices to all our residents, while still preserving old town Redmond and nearby historical sites. Part of my vision for Redmond is to be a place where you can live [4]

for your whole life. This means creating options in housing, transportation and recreation. Now, if you want to downsize after the kids move out, you can purchase a nice condo or town home in Redmond, close to all the amenities and services you enjoy. Your children have more choices about where to live in the city and can save up for a house while living in an apartment. To help ensure economic diversity in housing choices, the city is also pursuing senior housing on 160th Avenue Northeast across from the City Hall campus. The city’s customer service interaction with our businesses and residents has evolved with the times. We, too, use YouTube, websites, Facebook and Twitter to share information and seek input. You can sign up for emailed traffic alerts. When it snows, our web page with traffic cameras comes alive as families check to see if their routes are cleared. Our innovative new online permit system makes it easier for businesses to work with the city. We continue to improve our digital interaction to be quick, informative and interactive. And as always, you can attend a neighborhood meeting, citywide events or attend a City Council meeting on the first and third Tuesdays of the month; you can also call or email to address the council and me directly. Redmond will continue to be a great city as each generation builds on the successes of the previous one. As I have shared before, our city has long been a center of innovation, from its roots as a pioneering logging community to today’s role as a global tech hub for aerospace, software and the digital arts. As we celebrate our next century with this summer’s 73rd annual Derby Days, I look forward to celebrating how our past can set the stage for an even more exciting future for our hometown . . . hope to see you there in July!

Off to Saturday Market The Redmond Saturday Market is now open. With the warm weather on May 4, the market’s opening day was filled with smiling faces and excitement as folks returned to shop the fresh, local produce and crafts made by local artists. The smells of

tamales, sausage sandwiches, crepes and popcorn lingered in the air — making anyone hungry for a bite to eat. The day’s festivities began with Redmond Mayor John Marchione doing the honor of cutting the ribbon for the market’s 38th season. The

crowd cheered and members of Redmond High School’s Pep Band performed to celebrate the market’s opening. The Redmond Fire Department also came in full force, parking their engine in the driveway and posing for lots of photos. In addition, Heart

of Dreams Alpacas brought their critters along for the ride. Folks visited and fed the alpacas out on the grassy area all day long. The market will run through Oct. 26 at 7730 Leary Way N.E.

7950 Willows Road NE Redmond, WA 98052

We hear it every day: “My grandmother lived at Cascade Plaza when she could no longer live at home alone, my neighbor was at Cascade Vista for rehab after he had a stroke. The rehab was great. Or many years ago my son volunteered to play the piano there every week.” After all, we’ve been a part of the community since 1967. Cascade Plaza Assisted Living and Cascade Vista Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation are highly respected by the area’s hospitals, doctors and medical professionals and have been for nearly five decades. Respect of

that kind is earned, there’s simply no other way to achieve it. Exciting new changes, upgrades and renovations are coming our way very soon. Even though much will change, you can still count on the legacy of pride we have always had for providing exceptional service and professional care. Wonderful things are going to be happening. Stop in and have a look firsthand. We’re proud to show you the new Redmond Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care and Redmond Care and Rehabilitation Center.

A rockin’ place for teens BY ANDY NYSTROM Redmond Reporter

Sibling Rivalry’s Jacob Kappes, Jake Campbell and David Fure. “It’s always fun playing shows at the (Old Fire House),” Campbell said.

Punk-rock statesman Ian MacKaye once said in an interview about young musicians, “I feel like right now while we’re talking, there’s some kids, if they’re not already playing it, they’re cookin’ it up — it’s comin’, can’t be stopped.” Old Fire House Teen Center Program Coordinator Rana Shmait wholeheartedly agrees with the former Fugazi and Minor Threat leader’s comment when discussing the Redmond venue that has Rana Shmait been home to copious all-ages concerts since 1992. Shmait attended her first gig at the Fire House in 1997 when The Blood Brothers, Red Rocket and others took the stage in the 250-person capacity main room. She was 15 then and wide-eyed when she entered the music hot spot. “I couldn’t believe that it was here. That’s the same thing teens still share with me,” said the class of 2000 Redmond High graduate who’s now 31. “It was so close to home. And what remains the same is that the staff made me feel welcome, it was very inclusive.” Shmait added that the Redmond City Council and parks and recreation department are ardent supporters of the Fire House, which is

funded by the City of Redmond. “They’re all invested in having a safe place for teens to have a positive experience,” she said. Mudhoney, Modest Mouse, The Gossip and Minus the Bear are some of the bigger bands that have rocked the Fire House over the years; Fugazi was scheduled to play there in 1993, but venue founder Kate Becker moved the gig to the Bellevue YMCA and it drew 1,100 fans. The Fire House, which hosts two to three concerts a month, also features a 16-track recording studio and a Pro Tools system. Stephanie Su, DDS & Purva Merchant, BDS, MSD Shmait said the musicians performing at the Fire House these days are just as charged about putting on a solid show as bands in A summer bursting with the past. “I want this to be a space for young people to®.share their talent Life Essentials and be appreciated and be empowered,” she said of the bands of all genres, vocalists, dancers and poets who perform at the Fire House. “I refer to it as Adventure vibrant and driving, ” shefocusing added. “Ion never get bored.

A solid learning experience The Lake Washington School District is the highest performing large (more than 20,000 student) public school district in the state of Washington. Its goal is to ensure that each student graduates and is prepared to lead a rewarding, responsible life as a contributing member of our community. With 51 schools and more than 25,000 students, the district spans Redmond, Kirkland and Sammamish. Redmond is home to 16 Lake Washington schools and programs — two high schools, four junior high schools, 10 elementary schools — although some Redmond residents attend district schools in outlying areas such as Lake Washington High School in Kirkland and Eastlake High School in Sammamish. The newest addition is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) high school. The district’s educational philosophy is reflected in its Student Profile, the knowledge, skills and attributes that every student needs to be future ready. The district’s Teaching and Learning Framework builds from kindergarten through 12th grade so that students exit the system

Redmond High School students participate in a RESPECT assembly. Reporter file photo reflecting the student profile. The district believes in a continuum of educational options to meet the needs of students and parents. These include alternative schools and programs, small choice schools, home schooling partnerships, alternative structures and program innovations. Opportunities are available for parents and students inter-

ested in district-sponsored accelerated programs for highly capable students. Students are assessed and selected for enrollment in elementary and junior-high level accelerated programs. An array of advanced options for high school students are available at all of the district’s comprehensive high schools. Involvement of parents and community members in

key decisions is important to the district. Lake Washington consistently seeks input on major issues in a variety of ways. There are also numerous avenues for parents and community members to get involved through the PTSA, community working committees and volunteer opportunities. For information, visit www. lwsd.org.

Shop ‘til you drop With more than 110 retailers, Redmond Town Center (RTC) is a shopper’s paradise. According to Christina Henning, senior marketing manager, people can get a medical check-up, grab a bite for lunch, pick up a new pair of jeans and get their teeth cleaned all without moving their car. “More than a shopping center, more than an office park, we like to think of Redmond Town Center as a community gathering place,” Henning added. “It’s an honor to support several nonprofit organizations within our tenant line-up and are proud to have SecondStory Repertory, VALA Eastside and Reading with Rover call Redmond Town Center home.” RTC’s commitment to the community extends beyond its property lines to support local programs and events, including city initiatives, economic development and more. New to RTC is BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse and Kitanda Espresso and Acai. They’re also looking forward to welcoming 24-Hour Fitness to the center this fall. Upcoming summer events: 4th Annual Arts Festival and Sidewalk Sale scheduled for July 12-14 (Derby Days Weekend) and Family Concerts Saturdays at 4 p.m. July 20 and 27 and Aug. 3 and 10.

Redmond history lessons The Redmond Historical Society’s mission is “To discover, recover, preserve, share and celebrate Redmond’s history.” The society’s office is open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the historic Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 N.E. 80th St., Room 106. The society holds eight general meetings a year (January-May, and then SeptemberNovember) as well as a summer picnic. The general meetings are from 10:30 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month at the Old Schoolhouse. Each meeting includes a presentation on some aspect of Redmond or Eastside history. A downtown historic walking tour will take place from 1-2:30 p.m. on June 16. In addition, there will be a tour of Redmond’s Pioneer Cemetery at 11:30 a.m. on July 21 and a Haunted History and Storytelling tour on Sept. 15 during the early evening. Additional tour opportunities are also available by request. Local historian Tom Hitzroth works with the society to provide narrative tours of

Redmond Historical Society booth at last December’s Redmond Lights event. Courtesy photo downtown’s historic buildings to the Redmond community. In 1871, the first white settlers arrived in Redmond, and 128 years later, the Redmond Historical Society was formed. When the society held its first meeting in 1999, residents needed little convincing that Redmond’s rich local history was rapidly disappearing. Everywhere they looked, major changes were transforming

the landscape of the community. Old buildings were being demolished to make room for modern businesses. The fields and meadows of old homesteads were being bulldozed for housing tracts. And these changes continue to erase the structures and alter the natural setting of what was once a logging town, and later a close-knit farming community with all the friendly security of a small Western town. Today, the society is recovering photographs and artifacts, recording personal histories, researching and sharing Redmond’s past, and having fun doing it. The society is a large group of friendly folks of all ages. Some of them are new to Redmond, even new to the United States, all seeking roots in our new community. Others are revered longtimers who share their memories of times past. They welcome new members, especially volunteers looking to donate computer and program management skills. To receive a monthly newsletter, call (425) 885-2919 or email info@redmond historicalsociety.org.

Perfect for folks who prefer more community and less retirement. It’s about time, we believe, to put the emphasis on the correct word in “retirement community.” With all of our fun programs, activities, and choices galore, living at Fairwinds - Redmond is mighty active, social, and dare we say it — cool. Now that’s Community, with a capital “C”! Call now to schedule your complimentary lunch and tour. And get ready to see a retirement community that has its heart (and emphasis) in the right place.

It’s More Than Retirement. It’s Five-Star Fun.

Redmond is known as the “Bicycle Capital of the Northwest.” The city recently held a Bike Bash to celebrate its cyclers. It’s safe to say that people enjoy getting out and about on their two wheels, whether it’s on the plethora of trails or at the Marymoor Velodrome. “There’s trails absolutely everywhere. I feel really safe taking my 3-year-old and 10-year-old — it’s just a very family friendly, beautiful community,” said Redmond resident Julie Konkle at the Bike Bash. She added that her family likes to cruise the Sammamish River Trail from Redmond to Kenmore and back. Jill Smith, a member of the City of Redmond Trip Resource and Incentive Program (R-Trip), was pleased to see so many cyclists at the Bike Bash and biking to work on May 17. “I think there’s a lot of people who are really interested in the environment and being sustainably conscious,” she said, adding that camaraderie with cyclists is huge on the trails or at the Bike Bash. “A lot of people bike together and come in teams, of
