Creating a ‘gem in the community’ WSU makes new University Center top capital priority By Jim Davis

The Herald Business Journal Editor

EVERETT — It’s the top capital priority for Washington State University in this upcoming legislative session: A $61.1 million academic building in north Everett. The four-story, 95,000-square-foot structure would be the new home for the University Center and a lasting, physical presence for WSU in the community. “I think the building we’re planning is really going to be a gem in the community,” said Paul Pitre, dean of WSU North Puget Sound. It would also serve as a concrete commitment for the community, which has been pursuing a four-year, research university for decades, said Bob Drewel, interim chancellor for WSU North Puget Sound. “That transcends hope,” Drewel said. “That’s reality.” Add on a $4.5 million request to expand programs in Everett and it makes for an important legislative session for both WSU and the region. It will be a difficult session, because the Legislature is already looking for more money to pay for K-12 education, part of the demands of the McCleary decision. Drewel said he understands that. He adds that the Legislature always has a demanding job finding money for competing priorities. But he said it would be folly to consider K-12 in isolation of higher education. He also notes that the state made a commitment to Boeing in the process of placing the 777X in Everett to provide machinists, engineers and mechanics for the aerospace industry. “That’s something that is very, very

Washington State University is asking for $61.1 million from the Legislature to build a new home for the University Center in north Everett.

“I think the importance to WSU is the ability to have the types of facilities that we need to have to offer these top-notch engineering programs.” — Paul Pitre important,” Drewel said. A telling sign is coming at the end of December when Gov. Jay Inslee releases his capital budget. Lawmakers in the Senate and House will release their versions in the session. Everett has sought a university for years, first when lawmakers looked to place what would eventually become University of Washington Bothell. More recently, city, county and state leaders thought the UW would build a branch campus somewhere in the county. But UW retreated amid infighting among civic leaders on a location and the

feared cost of construction a new college. In stepped WSU under the leadership of President Elson Floyd. In 2012, the university started offering classes for a mechanical engineering degree through the University Center, a collaboration of public and private colleges based on the campus of Everett Community College. This fall WSU launched bachelor’s degree programs in electrical engineering, communications and hospitalitybusiness management. For years, Everett Community College managed the consortium, which includes the University of Washington, Western Washington and Central Washington universities. On July 1, the community college transferred control to WSU. Conversations for the new University Center building began in 2012. Last year, WSU received $10 million in state funding to design the facility, planned for a chunk of land that is now part of the parking lot at the College Plaza shopping center, near the corner of North Broadway and Tower Street. In the upcoming legislative session, WSU is asking for $4.5 million to launch four new programs offering 10 majors. Those programs are aviation management and aviation maintenance management; data analytics; software engineering; and sustainable food systems. Central Washington University already offers the aviation program at its campus

in Ellensburg, but would expand to offer classes for up to 30 students in Everett. Data analytics and software engineering would offer choices for students seeking STEM courseloads. Sustainable food systems would dovetail with existing programs already being offered at Edmonds Community College and Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon. “I think people in the three county region should anticipate each and every program has substantial thought behind it,” Drewel said. “It has a purpose and a reason for its delivery.” The University Center currently teaches about 400 students. If the new programs are added, the University Center would add another 100 or more, Pitre said. And that’s part of the need for the new building. They’re already running into space issues in their borrowed home at the EvCC campus. The new building will include 12 classrooms and 10 laboratories. It will have a small space for a café and another area set aside for public gatherings. It will be vital for the science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses the university intends to offer. “I think the importance to WSU is the ability to have the types of facilities that we need to have to offer these top-notch engineering programs,” Pitre said. If the Legislature approves the project, construction could start as soon as next year with an open date in 2017. Its location near EvCC’s new Advanced Manufacturing Education & Training Center is ideal. They’re also considering how the WSU North Puget Sound can grow into the future. “We are looking at opportunities at this moment to go forward in that regard,” Drewel said.

Material of the moment Aerospace relying on strong, light carbon fiber composites By Debra Vaughn

For The Herald Business Journal

Take a drive down Highway 526 and look north toward the cranes and trucks and workers building the future of not only Boeing but an entire region. Contractors are creating a new 1.3 million-square-foot factory where Boeing workers will eventually fabricate airplane wings for a new family of twin-aisle airplanes called the 777X. The new plane marries the technology of the popular 777 with the material advances of the fuel-efficient Dreamliner. When the first 777X rolls off the factory floor sometime around 2020, it will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. That efficiency largely comes from the wings that will be fabricated from a super light and strong carbon fiber composite

Construction of the new facility that will build carbon-fiber composite wings of the 777X in Everett is already ahead of schedule.

material. At a groundbreaking ceremony, Boeing chief executive officer Ray Conner called them “the most phenomenal wings in the world.” He said the compos-

ite wings would take Boeing into the next century. A lot of the future is riding on those wings.

The Composite Wing Center secures a future for Boeing in Everett and all that comes with it: good-paying jobs, tax revenue and the pump of steady paychecks into the local economy. Boeing declined to say exactly how many jobs the new 777X will create but did say that it would increase employment on the 777 group by 10 percent. Boeing’s move toward more advanced manufacturing techniques sets the stage for other companies to cluster here. For instance, KUKA Aerospace, a division of the largest robotics companies in the world, just opened a facility near Boeing and is on tap to create the automated system that will build the fuselage of the 777X. “We have a renewed confidence this industry will be here for a minimum of the next few decades,” said Alex Pietsch, director of the state Office of Aerospace. “The decision to build the 777X here will interest companies around the world who want to be here and make investments. “Companies already here are expanding as they ramp up to meet increased

cover story Carbon-fiber composites are prized for a high strengthto-weight ratio. They don’t easily fatigue like metal or corrode. They’re easy to mold and shape. production rates. It’s exciting.” When the Composite Wing Center is complete, it will hold automated equipment that fabricates the components of the 235-foot wings: the wing spars, wing skins and stringers. Equipment will wind carbon fiber layers around a form and then the parts will be cured in 120-foot-long autoclaves. The components will then be assembled elsewhere in the Everett site. Carbon-fiber composites are prized for a high strength-to-weight ratio. They don’t easily fatigue like metal or corrode. They’re easy to mold and shape and bonded structures are smoother and more aerodynamic than those that are riveted. On the downside, carbon-fiber composites require special storage and handling and expensive equipment to create. They require a skilled work force to create and repair. And composites are expensive. There’s an incredible demand beyond Boeing for skilled workers who know how to fabricate and repair composites, said Patrick Murphy, an instructor for Everett Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Composites program. By his own audit, as many as 180 companies in the county manufacture or in some way work with composites in industries such as aerospace, marine, wind or the military. The Everett Community College program regularly has a waiting list for the 20 slots in its program. The program is adding another 20 slots. The use of composite materials isn’t new in many industries. Manufacturers routinely use composites for bikes, tennis rackets and other sporting goods. Composites in various forms are used in tubs, showers and sinks. Advanced composites are used in boats and aircraft. BMW opened a plant in Moses Lake in Eastern Washington in 2011 that will provide carbon fiber parts for the i3 and i8 models. Both models will be assembled in Leipzig, Germany. The Boeing Co. and the BMW Group announced in 2012 that they had agreed to collaborate on research on carbon fiber recycling. The companies also said they would share carbon fiber manufacturing process simulations and ideas for manufacturing automation. Snohomish County is becoming something of a hub for advanced manu-

facturing, which includes carbon-fiber composites, said Troy McClelland, president of Economic Alliance Snohomish County. Boeing is spending more than $1 billion dollars on the Composite Wing Center. Contractors are working at breakneck speed to get the building finished by May 2016. Production is scheduled to begin the following year with the first aircraft ready for customers in 2020. That’s a tight timeline. “Customers have told us they need this aircraft in their business cycle,” said Eric Lindblad, vice president of the Wing Integration 777X Program. “We’re on an accelerated timeline. “We have to build an entire building,

get the equipment installed and start production.” With so much on the line, easy working relationships with city officials who handle permitting was one factor in deciding to locate production in Everett, he said. Contractors got a seven week head start after local and state officials worked together to streamline the permitting process. Another factor was the successful approval of an eight-year contract extension with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District 751 that included an agreement by Boeing to fabricate and assemble the wings of the 777X in the Puget Sound.

Statewide, the composites industry offers the potential for tens of thousands of skilled labor jobs, according to the state Department of Commerce. State employers engage in composites last year employed more than 10,000 workers — that’s up from nearly 8,400 in 2011. That excludes jobs at Boeing. Boeing and composite supplier Toray Industries pioneered the use of prepreg composites — a combination of highstrength carbon fiber and toughened epoxy resin — in the 1970s. By 1994, assemblies including the empennage and floor beams were being produced for the 777 program. In 2004, Boeing launched the Dreamliner, which had more composite material than any other commercial airplane. The 777X is the next iteration. It is expected to boast 12 percent lower fuel consumption and 10 percent lower operating costs than the competition. That’s appealing to customers who above all else want an aircraft that is efficient to operate, said Lindblad, the vice president of the Wing Integration 777X program. The only ways to affect efficiency are to improve engine performance, design a more aerodynamic aircraft or reduce weight. The 787 with its higher make up of composites was a quantum leap over its aluminum predecessors, and Boeing learned how to better apply these composites, he said. The company opted to use more composite material on the wings of the 777X, rather than the fuselage, because that’s where the strength and lightness of composites make the biggest difference in weight.

Robotics factory opens in Everett By Debra Vaughn The Herald Business Journal

EVERETT — KUKA Aerospace, a division of one of the largest robotics companies in the world, has opened a facility in Everett on Seaway Boulevard near Boeing. The company builds

state-of-the-art automated systems and is working with Boeing on manufacturing technology to build the 777X. KUKA is creating automated robots that will fasten the panels of the fuselage together, drill and fill more than 60,000 fasteners that are now installed by hand.

KUKA’s arrival is just the beginning of advanced manufacturers that will be drawn to the area to support the more technical production of the 777x line, said Troy McClelland, president of Economic Alliance Snohomish County. The robotic system designed by KUKA is

the latest in a series of advanced manufacturing changes on the 777 program, which already include new systems for painting wings and other drilling operations. “You can see this trend toward more advanced technology in the 777X line and this should demonstrate a shift in manu-

facturing,” McClelland said. “We’re well positioned for advanced manufacturers to take root here.” McClelland said he’s spoken with a handful of other companies involved in automation, advanced material and composite technology interested in locating here. He didn’t

share names. Snohomish County is a desirable location for these companies because it offers an existing technology cluster, a technical work force, education programs at local community colleges and municipal officials ready to work with companies on a smooth transition, McClelland said. The 29,000-square-foot KUKA facility will serve as a service and maintenance hub close to its customers on the West Coast. The center will employ about 75 people, most of them hired from the local area, according to a prepared statement from the company. KUKA Aerospace, the global aerospace division of the KUKA Systems Group, is based in Clinton Township, Michigan. KUKA’s project portfolio includes orders from some of the world’s largest aerospace manufacturers to design and build assembly systems for commercial, business and military aircraft. This is one of the largest projects KUKA has undertaken in the aerospace sector. When the Boeing 777X twin-aisle passenger jet goes into full production, each fuselage will be built using advanced automation technology developed collaboratively by KUKA and Boeing, according to the company. Before, a giant lathe-like machine turned the fuselages, and workers stood inside and out, drilling and filling. KUKA’s new technology allows machines to drill from above, which saves time and is expected to improve worker safety. More than half of all injuries on the 777 program occurred during the phase of production that will be automated, according to a statement from Boeing. The 777 program is testing the technology, known as Fuselage Automated Upright Build, in Anacortes. The system will be installed in Everett in a new portion of the main factory now under construction.

Washington state University north PUget soUnd at everett The North Puget Sound is one of the most distinctive regions in our state. Its landscape is filled with picturesque mountains, water, and river valleys where some of the most delicious crops of Washington are grown. Our region is also the scene of burgeoning opportunities for high paying jobs and economic growth. Home to the most significant manufacturing cluster in the state of Washington, the region is also known for its high concentration of technology-based jobs – second only to King County in the state. To further advance these strengths in agriculture, manufacturing, and high tech, residents of this region also have one-of-a-kind higher education choices like never before.

Washington State University is now the manager of the Everett University Center, a consortium of institutions who have come together for higher education delivery. The EUC offers the third- and fourth-year instruction in baccalaureate degree programs for those interested in receiving their education and then working here at home. “Never has there been such a wide array of educational opportunities for students here in North Puget Sound,” says Bob Drewel, Chancellor of EUC and WSU North Puget Sound at Everett. “Because of the hard work of this community, civic leaders and partners, the support of the legislature, and the commitment of WSU, students have more choices to seamlessly transfer from a local community college and earn four-year degrees that can lead to high paying jobs vital to our region.” Gabriel Valea (pictured right), is proof of the value of this unique approach to higher education that benefits students who need options in the college experience. “I am excited to earn my WSU degree here in Everett, “ says Gabriel. “The campus, co-located on the Everett Community College campus, fits my preferred learning style. I want a campus that is more intimate, smaller in size, and where I know my professors and they know me. I have confidence that I will be able to take my mechanical engineering degree to the next level when I graduate: finding a great job here in the area.”

“Gabriel’s story is an example of the benefits of having four-year degree options here in Everett,” says Paul Pitre, academic dean of EUC and WSU North Puget Sound at Everett. “Gabriel is thriving because of the relationships he has developed with his professors and fellow students. He is experiencing a world-class education that prepares him to be ‘job-ready, day one’ when he graduates with his WSU diploma.”

“I am grateful that I am earning my degree in an educational setting that best fits me,” says Gabriel. “I feel at home at WSU North Puget Sound at Everett because literally, I am home, a place I enjoy, where I want to work, and where I want to stay.”

WSU is proud to be part of the Everett University Center

WSU is working closely with its academic partners, community leaders, and the legislature to explore expanding the academic offerings at EUC and WSU North Puget Sound at Everett. “We are asking the legislature to support up to 10 new academic program options for students; all connected to the job opportunities unique to our area” says Chancellor Drewel. “If approved, new offerings will include aviation managment programs by Central Washington University along with several individual WSU degree programs covering agriculture, data analytics, and software engineering.” These programs, designed to take advantage of the region’s economic strengths, will add to the already robust set of third- and fourth-year baccalaureate degree offerings through the EUC. 1188647

“We are unique in this state,” says Dean Pitre. “It is only here in Everett where you can earn your AA degree at EvCC or Skagit Valley College or Edmonds Community College, or any community college, and then matriculate at either University of Washington – Bothell, or WSU North Puget Sound at Everett, Western Washington University, CWU, Eastern Washington University, Evergreen State College or Hope International, a private university to take high quality, highly rated third- and fourth-year courses to finish your bachelor’s degree at one of these excellent institutions.”

Will rising rental rates continue? By Marci Dehm For The Herald Business Journal

Workers add floors to an apartment building under construction at Rucker and Hewitt avenues in Everett. Thirteen hundred apartments are expected to be added in Snohomish County in 2015.

nearly 300,000 square feet of office space in Bothell in order to house those office workers displaced when old buildings were torn down to begin construction on Everett’s new wing plant.

“Obviously it was a great boon for Bothell,” Jackson said. “Most of those leases are for three to five years so there is a little bit of speculation as to what they might do at the end of those lease terms.”

Commercial and residential rental rates have been strong in the Puget Sound region over the last year. But can they continue in that trend? And what about Snohomish County in particular? Brent Jackson, vice president of the brokerage group Jones Lang LaSalle in Seattle, works primarily in the industrial commercial lease and sale market. He knows the Snohomish County market, well, particularly those areas around Lynnwood and in the Seaway industrial zone in Everett. “Over the last two to three years, the general trend for industrial space in the north end market has been in a positive direction,” Jackson said. “It has moved to lower vacancy rates and more demand and more deals getting done as well as the resultant increase in rental rates.” Unless there is an unforeseen downturn in the aerospace market or the general economy, Jackson believes the Snohomish County industrial rental market is in pretty good shape for quite a while. A key move in this industry occurred in April 2014 when Boeing signed leases on

Prior to Boeing’s move, there had been a number of spaces in the 20,000- to 50,000-square-foot range that had been sitting vacant on the market for quite a while. Suddenly the majority of those spaces were leased, creating an extremely tight local market from a vacancies standpoint. “At the end of the third quarter, our metrics that we track indicate about 5.5 percent vacancy, which is very low,” Jackson said. “What we are seeing, going into 2015, is that people who want to lease space in that market are going to have a challenge in finding good quality, modern, reasonably priced space.” The lack of alternatives may force tenants searching for properties in the Woodinville, Bothell, Lynnwood and Everett areas to look further north. That could be good news for north Snohomish County. Jackson recently had a client looking in the Arlington area simply to get the square footage the company needed. The buildings on available properties in that zone aren’t usually as new or amenityfilled as those found in the Seaway area, he said, and the location not as desirable. But many tenants may be willing to compromise on their wish list in order to get housed.


market facts 2015 Journal B15 15 MARKET FACTS 2015 the THEherald HERALDBusiness BUSINESS JOURNAL

Jackson has also noticed some speculative development taking place in the Seaway Center of Everett. Specifically he pointed to the Powder Mill Business Center being developed by Panatonni. The gamble seems to have paid off already for the company. “They have signed a lease with HDI Landing Gear, which is a new company coming into the market from Montreal that is doing work for Boeing,” Jackson said. HDI is scheduled to open next year in the 21,000-square-foot space. Many other potential tenants have also shown interest in the 36-acre industrial park. Another area of the rental market that has been abuzz is the multifamily housing or apartment rental market. The recently reported apartment vacancy rate for the Puget Sound region is 3.8 percent, up only minimally from the 3.6 percent vacancy rate reported for spring 2014. Rents rose 4.7 percent over the past six months and are 8.2 percent higher than they were a year ago. On the surface, these figures from the Apartment Vacancy Report appear to paint a rosy picture for the industry. But these rent averages are likely to be skewed. Online real estate database Zillow pointed out in a recent article that the increase in new construction has resulted in premium units that can be rented for a higher price. Patty Dupre, a principal with Dupre + Scott, noted the same in a recent press release, referring to it as “the skew of the new.” New units simply rent for more money and this distorts overall rent

“What we are seeing, going into 2015, is that people who want to lease space in that market are going to have a challenge in finding good quality, modern, reasonably priced space.” — Brent Jackson trends. To better understand the apartment market, it has to be examined in depth. Matthew Gardner, an economist and principal at Gardner Economics in Seattle, has been analyzing the actual stability of the market. Apartments have been strong, he explained, because when the post-recession credit market began to thaw, the only asset class that banks would touch were apartments. This spurred on developers, especially in the urban areas that had a high demand for residential rental units. “I think in general we are going to see some stress occurring in the greater Seattle market in the next couple of years purely because we are bringing on a lot of new product,” Gardner said. He believes Snohomish County should not be significantly touched by such stress because it has a lower development rate. About 1,300 new units are scheduled to come online for Snohomish County in 2015. King County, by contrast, is seeing a projected number of more than 10,000 new units to open next year. In all, Gardner thinks the apartment market is very buoyant. There are a lot of companies out there looking to develop

We specialize in

and a lot of companies looking to acquire those apartment developments. He believes next year is going to be the same but with a tapering of the rapid growth in rents that has been seen over the last few years. There is one segment of the residential rental market that is not tracked by any agency. For that reason, any facts or figures on the health of the single family residential rental market have to be anecdotal. The sales inventory for single-family homes is still low, which could indicate that fewer people are able to buy homes to convert into residential rental properties. In fact, there may be a trend in the opposite direction. “It’s an interesting dynamic right now,” said Everett attorney Rob Trickler, president of the Washington Rental Owners Association, All County Evictions and the Landlord Law Group. He has seen a number of landlords sell their residential rental properties in response to the demand for single-family homes. Many were reluctant landlords to begin with, only renting the properties in order to hang on to them until they had recouped some of their pre-recession

value. These homes are likely to be converted back into primary residences rather than remain in the rental market. That is not to say that there are not buyers out there looking for an investment property. “Folks who are buying up rentals are typically well-suited landlords that are now taking advantage of the market turning around to the point where they can get financing and they’re buying stuff that is relatively cheap or foreclosures,” Trickler said. Nevertheless, Trickler is not seeing the kind of rental action he would expect in the county. It’s still financially challenging for many local landlords and some seem reluctant to pull the trigger on difficult tenants even with a low vacancy rate as a safety net. He also is seeing a reaction in the underside of this market – a room rental trend. This can be people renting a single room in their homes to try and help with the bills, taking in a roommate or something even more complex. “A lot of people are setting up rooming houses,” Trickler said. “Some legal, some not.” As for the immediate future of the single-family home rental market, Trickler suggests keeping an eye on the coming legislative session where rent control is going to be a topic. He believes that if the proposal to take the state prohibition for rent control off the books is successful, it may impact the market negatively. But short of a crystal ball, Snohomish County will have to wait and see what 2015 brings.

Year in review

2014: A time of lasting change Herald Business Journal Staff

The economy improved, the unemployment rate fell and housing prices started trending up. The biggest business news in Snohomish County in 2014 — as it almost always is — revolved around Boeing. The year started off with a bang when the Boeing machinists narrowly approved a new contract with the company that cuts benefits but ensured the 777X, and its innovative carbon-fiber wing, would be assembled in the Puget Sound region. Boeing again captured headlines in February when it announced those wings would be built in Everett. It wasn’t all rosy for the county: Plans for a Seattle-based shipbuilder to move to the Everett waterfront fell by the wayside. Add in Washington’s venture into allowing the sale of recreational marijuana and the impact of Oso in the community and it’s been a busy year. Here’s a look back the biggest business news for the county last year: 1. Machinists agree to concessions to keep 777X assembly in Puget Sound region

Hazel Powers (center), a 35-year Boeing employee, and other Machinists rallied on Jan. 3, 2014. The vote to accept contract concessions will impact Snohomish County for decades.

The biggest business news happened three days into the new year: Machinists with a 51 percent vote agreed to contract concessions to keep the assembly of the 777X in the Puget Sound region. Union leadership urged members of

District 751 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers to vote against the concessions. The leadership said the loss of pensions and higher health care costs was just too much to give to a company making

record profits. The deal secured the future of Boeing in the birthplace of Boeing for decades to come, said Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “The future of Boeing in the Puget Sound region has never looked brighter,” Conner said on Jan. 3. “We’re proud to say that together, we’ll build the world’s next great airplane — the 777X and its new wing — right here. This will put our workforce on the cutting edge of composite technology, while sustaining thousands of local jobs for years to come.” If the vote had gone the other way, it would have created an uncertainty for the Puget Sound region and the state. Later in the year, Mountain Pacific Bank CEO Mark Duffy said the outlook for the region totally changed with that vote. “If that vote went the other way, I would have had discussions with the board to position ourselves to sell in the future,” Duffy said.

4. Kimberly-Clark property deal goes south It looked like Everett had an answer for the departure of the Kimberly-Clark mill on its waterfront. Kimberly-Clark closed its mill in 2012, laying off 700 people. It was the last smokestack for a town nicknamed the City of Smokestacks. The city wanted to attract an industrial use for the waterfront and had interest from Foss Maritime, a subsidiary of Saltchuk. The company has a shipyard in Seattle where it maintains a fleet of tugs, barges and other specialty vessels. The 66-acre Kimberly-Clark property with its deep water access seemed like a place for Foss Maritime to move and grow. Kimberly-Clark and Saltchuk agreed to

a deal in October 2013. From the beginning, Saltchuk cautioned that it needed to do due diligence before purchasing the land. In April, Saltchuk announced that contaminated and unstable soil on the site was too risky for it to go forward. Kimberly-Clark said that it had interest in the site before Saltchuk and expected more interest. Mayor Stephanson said at the time he was hopeful that the companies could resume discussions. 4. Legal pot businesses open across the county The line started at 7 a.m. at Cascade Kropz in Arlington, the first legal recreational marijuana retailer in Snohomish County. The mother and son who own the business, Lisa and Brad Kihm, pumped up music and handed out water to the dozens who showed up on July 13. They had 4 1/2 pounds of marijuana and an ample number of customers on that day as they became one of the first 25 legal pot stores in the state to open. Growers and producers had been working on the marijuana crop for months after voters approved Initiative 502 in November 2012. That work was being done behind scenes. Once the stores opened, the cameras came and Washington’s experiment into legal weed became headline news. Since then, dozens of other stores have opened across the county and the state although some communities have banned the businesses. By September, High Times — the venerable magazine on all things pot — hosted a trade show at the former Comcast Arena in Everett complete with a logo of George Washington smoking a joint.

With the Machinists vote, Boeing committed to assembling the 777X in Everett, but the company considered its options for building its wing fabrication plant including looking at Frederickson in Pierce County. That’s where Boeing has a plant that does composite work for the existing 777 and the 787. Transporting the wings from Pierce County to Snohomish County would have been a challenge. Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson said at his state of the city speech in January 2014 that it was vital to get the work in Everett, because the innovative wings could be used on future versions of Boeing’s planes. In the end, the company chose to keep the wing factory close to final assembly. In October, Boeing broke ground on the $1 billion, 1.3-million-square-foot building, just north of the present factory at Paine Field. The building will be as big as 25 football fields and will include three of the world’s largest autoclaves.

Airport, where he had been in charge of operations on the airfield and in the terminal. Erin Monroe took charge of Workforce Snohomish in September, the organization in charge of preparing and supporting the current and future workforce within Snohomish County. She replaced Sue Ambler, who also retired after being in the post for eight years. Like Reardanz, Monroe came up within the organization and serving last as the finance director. Longtime Community Transit CEO Joyce Eleanor retired in August after 20 years with the transit agency. A search was underway for her replacement.

5. Higher education options grow for Everett, Snohomish County Washington State University made a huge commitment to the North Puget Sound region. Everett Community College opened a state-of-the-art center focused on advanced manufacturing. And the University of Washington Bothell continues to mature with one of the fastest growing campuses in the country. Several pushes are being made to expand access to higher education for the region. WSU took over on July 1 administration of the University Center, a consortium of colleges that offer bachelor level degrees at the EvCC campus. WSU brings prestige and clout. The university is seeking $61.1 million from the state to build a new 95,000-squarefoot building in north Everett. EvCC opened in late September its Advanced Manufacturing Training & Education Center, a $3.75 million building to instruct a new generation of workers in all areas of manufacturing. The 37,000-square-foot center along North Broadway in Everett will help students learn a range of skills from welding and fabrication to engineering to precision machining. The UW Bothell welcomed its largest class of students ever this fall, 4,588 full-time equivalent students. The campus is the fourth fastest growing campus in the nation, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Of those

students, 35 percent are from Snohomish County and 50 percent are from King County. It’s an achievement for a branch campus that received its charter just 25 years ago. 6. New leadership at Port of Everett, Paine Field New faces will lead several institutions in the community. Les Reardanz takes over management of the Port of Everett succeeding

longtime Port Director John Mohr, who retired. Reardanz had been deputy director for the port for four years and had played a major role in everything from drafting new policies to looking after environmental clean-up projects to negotiating the transfer of the Mukilteo Tank Farm from the U.S. Air Force to the port. Arif Ghouse took over in October as director of the county-owned Paine Field, replacing Dave Waggoner, who retired after 22 years. Ghouse had been duty manager at Seattle-Tacoma International

7. Oso tragedy puts landslide insurance in the spotlight The Oso landslide on March 22 killed 43 people and destroyed more than 40 homes. People who own property in the landslide area near Oso learned that they probably didn’t have insurance that protects against such a disaster — and they were still on the hook for their mortgages. Standard homeowner and business policies specifically exclude damage caused by earth movement such as a landslide. A property owner would need to buy a special policy just to protect against landslides. The county is exploring the idea of buying the property from landowners. Coastal Community Bank has been working with banks to forgive home, business or auto loans. But a forgiven loan might cause problems: The federal government considers forgiven loans as income and taxes it as such.
