CITY HALLS FOR BOTHELL AND KENMORE
Kenmore City Hall Kenmore City Hall, which is located in the city’s downtown, is where residents can access city services and employees. The building is located at 18120 68th Ave. NE. To contact City Hall, call (425) 398-8900, or visit www.cityofkenmore.com.
Bothell City Hall uses two buildings to provide basic services: City Hall — which it has used since the 1930s — at 18305 101st Ave. NE; and the Dawson Building, an annex at 9654 NE 182nd St., used by the planning and public-improvements employees.

Connecting Kenmore to the Waterfront
enmore is the crown jewel of Lake Washington and we have heard loud and clear from our constituents that accessibility to the water should be a top priority for the city. With more than seven miles of shoreline on the lake and the Sammamish River, the city is working to advance the community’s connection to the waterfront. This past year we’ve made significant progress David Baker through the addition of a new public seasonal float at Log Boom Park, the reopening of the remodeled boat launch, the inaugural Kenmore Hydroplane Cup event and more. In response to the public’s desire for more waterfront access, the city purchased 0.65 acres of waterfront property located at 7353 NE 175th Street at the confluence of Swamp Creek and the Sammamish River, expanding Squire’s Landing Park. The newly acquired property serves a variety of park functions, including a bird and wildlife viewpoint, launching point for hand-powered watercraft and a community gathering spot. The city has an agreement with the Kenmore Canoe and Kayak Club, which provides public recreational programming and instruction for hand-powered watercraft activities including kayaking, canoeing, and dragon boat racing. While the emphasis will be on youth activities, instruction and classes will be provided for all ages and skill levels including free or discounted classes and memberships for low income youth and families. This is a win-win partnership for all involved and we are thrilled to be delivering this beautiful waterfront property for the public’s benefit. The city is also in the process of developing plans to improve waterfront access and recreation opportunities at Rhododendron

Let’s Move Kenmore to Target Zero Together! Ask Yourself...How can I be a safer pedestrian, bicyclist, or driver? • Be Seen. Increase your visibility by wearing bright, reflective clothing whenever you are out on the road - riding or walking. Pedestrians, walk facing traffic if there is no sidewalk and as far away from vehicles as possible. • Share the Road. Roads are being used by pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles – look twice for one another. Safety is contagious. • Don’t Be Distracted. Handheld cell phone use is dangerous and against the law when driving. Pedestrians and bicyclists, when traveling in roadways be better aware of your surroundings by unplugging from electronics.
The Target Zero Initiative was adopted by the Kenmore City Council in April of 2014 with the goal of achieving zero pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and serious injuries in Kenmore by 2025 by increasing awareness of pedestrian, bicyclist and driver safety issues.

What is the TRUTH?
Pay for one room, Get the rest of your house free? 60% Off Sale? The truth is, our EVERY DAY prices are LOWER than the sale prices at other stores. Miracle Carpets will transform your home the look - the feel - the sound
You can get carpet that will look nearly new for 25 years for less than you would pay for garbage carpet at other stores. Long-time Woodinville merchant, Greg Wilkinson, sells top-quality carpet and custom-built, state-of-theart mattresses. “I founded this business to raise money for charity, act as a consumer advocate, and provide the best products at the best prices. I have been selling the best quality carpet at the best prices for almost 30 years. I started selling mattresses 16 years ago. The first nine years, I tested up to two a month. In my opinion they were all junk so I decided to design and make my own. I’m confident I make the best mattress in the world. They are not the least expensive or the most expensive. You cannot get a better mattress or better carpet anywhere at any price.” “Fair Warning: This is a one-man operation in an old house, in downtown Woodinville. Don’t expect a fancy showroom, but do expect a friendly, trustworthy guy who knows his stuff and is happy to work with you to get it right, and a very friendly dog just for good measure. Would do business here again in a heartbeat.” -JOANN SILKES, Woodinville
