Auburn 2017 Residents’ Guide


A Message from the Mayor We are a place where our veterans and their families are welcomed with open arms and where people of all faiths, heritage, and experiences have a place at the table. We are not without our challenges, and we continue to fight the battle of homelessness and opioid addiction that are sweeping the nation, but I know we are a community that gathers together to support one another, and in that spirit, I know we will find real and meaningful solutions. We will continue to find opportunities to bring people together and learn from each other, and I will continue to fight as your mayor for the best for you and our city. I hope that you enjoy this year’s residents’ guide, and that you are taking advantage of the great opportunities and offerings right here in Auburn – whether that be biking our trails and enjoying the birdwatching at Environmental Park, or enjoying an evening of

Auburn 2017 Residents’ Guide

Auburn is a growing city, with nearly 80,000 of us now calling it home, and as our region continues to grows exponentially, we find our city continuing to evolve with it. We are seeing our downtown core continue to be revitalized with new businesses and housing, and we are watching as major corporations and Fortune 500 companies continue to invest in our community. Just this past year, we celebrated the ground breaking for Boeing’s newest facility here in Auburn – its first in more than 25 years. Last year alone, we welcomed 300 new businesses into the city, and because of that we are also experiencing some of the lowest rates of unemployment in the state. Yet, despite this growth, Auburn continues to keep the hometown feel that makes this place so special to us. I often say, there are few places left where people stop to say hello to one another, but Auburn is still one of those places.

Auburn School District-Engage, Educate, Empower Welcome to the Auburn School District! I would like to highlight some successes and let you know what’s coming up in the future. First, we have record enrollment this year, almost 16,000 students in our 22 schools. Auburn is a great place to live and raise a family, and our enrollment shows it! Our incredible community passed the bond in November, and we are now on the path to replacing six of our aging schools and building two new elementary schools. We will track the progress of this long-term project on our website and periodically communicate milestones to the community. The support and

strong commitment of our community will contribute to our success for generations. In January, we began engaging our community in creating a new strategic plan to guide us through the coming years. Our goal is to involve all segments of our community in developing a plan to continue Auburn’s tradition of success while building new opportunities for our students. We have identified a strong, diverse, representative committee to help in this endeavor to create the plan for the best education for Auburn’s students. By the end of this summer, we will achieve our goal of targeted 1:1 technology

for all students, thanks to the technology levy passed in 2014. Students are not just learning how to use technology, they are learning how to learn with technology. It is transforming personalized learning for all students. In Auburn, we want ALL students to be successful and are looking at everything we do through a lens of equity. A large contingent of teachers, principals, support staff and administrators are participating in deep equity training to provide more tools to close the achievement gaps for students of every race and family income level.

PROUD TRADITION: VETERANS DAY PARADE Honoring veterans is a tradition in the City of Auburn. And for the past 51 years, the Veterans Day Parade has acknowledged the sacrifices made by American veterans, past and present, with one of the largest processions west of the Mississippi. The mile-long parade typically lasts about two hours, featuring marching bands, ROTC units, re-enactors, active military units and military vehicles from all eras. Last year's parade featured more than 200 entries and more than 5,000 parade participants, showcasing American strength of will, endurance and purpose. The parade included more than 35 marching bands. Auburn is designated by the

Veterans Day National Committee and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as a regional site for the celebration of Veterans Day. The 52nd edition of the tradition is Nov. 11 on Main Street.

ARE YOU PREPARED? Being prepared can change everything. By planning ahead, you can increase the chances of survival for you and your family, not to mention gain peace of mind knowing you are in control. Catastrophes can happen at any time. Preparing for three days will help you make it through many of the disasters you’ll face in the Puget Sound region, including major storms and even small earthquakes. However, to make it through a major catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina or the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, you’ll need to be prepared for longer, at least 7 to 10 days. Catastrophes can happen at any time and are likely to happen here. Imagine you are at work, on the road, or at home during a catastrophe. How would you communicate with loved ones? Are you prepared to survive without essential services, such as running water, electricity, or phones for 7 to 10 days?

Make a family emergency communication plan, identify an out-of-state contact Plan for people, pets and property Review and practice your emergency plan

Build a kit for at least 7 to 10 days Save important documents/records on USB drives, store one at home and one in a safety deposit box Create customized kits for home, office and vehicle

Get involved – Create networks of neighbors and coworkers, work together to pool resources Participate in a training – CPR, first aid, Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) Learn how to reduce hazards (e.g. shutting off gas supply if needed, strap water heater in place, etc.)

20 Auburn 2017 Residents’ Guide

BUILD A KIT FOR AT LEAST 7 TO 10 DAYS Imagine if resources aren’t available for seven or more days. You might have to take care of minor injuries and access to resources will likely be limited. Help your family be better prepared by gathering additional supplies and customizing the list to meet your needs. Once you have the basics, think about items you could use to help yourself and others, or simply improve your comfort. Identify a storage container or key location to place your survival kit, then gather and store supplies. Supplies include water and food as well as items for shelter and warmth, first aid, communication, personal hygiene and sanitation. It’s possible your home could be damaged and you may have to evacuate; be sure to include a backpack or similar bag so you can pack some of these items to go. Many of these supplies you may already have at home. Below are suggested basic supplies to survive for 7 to 10 days. QWater – one gallon per person per day for drinking and sanitation QFood – at least 7 to 10 day supply of non-perishable food per person QCash – ATMs won’t work without electricity QBattery-powered radio and extra batteries QFlashlight and extra batteries QFirst aid kit QWhistle to signal for help QFilter mask or cotton t-shirt to help filter the air QMoist towelettes for sanitation QWrench or pliers to turn off utilities if needed QManual can opener for food QShelter items like tents, tarps and rope QGarbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation QUnique family needs: supplies for infants, pets and elderly, prescriptions, and important family documents Local agencies across Puget Sound are teaming up to share information and encourage residents to prepare for catastrophic events with this regional campaign, WHAT TO DO TO MAKE IT THROUGH.

[ WILLIAMS from page 22 ] disrepair, who were putting off car maintenance, having problems making doctor appointments because they had no money for gas because money was going toward other things. The question was, ‘Was there a way we could support those families, help them out at least for a little bit?’ ” Looking about, Williams discovered that while many charities were out there doing the good work of raising money for childhood cancer research, few were raising money to support families with sick or dying children. So, in 2006, Williams’ family formalized the See Ya Later Foundation as a nonprofit, faith-based, nondenominational organization with the mission of helping families fraught by a child’s medical crisis. The foundation took its title from a video Scott made on a Make-A-Wish cruise. According to the foundation’s website, “on one of the last clips, Scott

turned the camera on himself and told of the day’s events, ending by saying “See Ya Later!” The brief clip ended at Scott’s memorial service, telling more than 1,100 people “See ya later!” And since 2010, when Williams launched the Auburn branch at the family’s request, the SYL Foundation has gone on to lighten the load of many local families. “One of the things we wanted to do was provide sports camps to get other youth involved in the community who may not otherwise be involved because the cost of specialized camps was too much. And we created a scholarship program to encourage other highschoolers to be impact makers in their communities,” said Williams, a 21-year veteran of the Auburn Police force. For all that Williams is and does for the community, the Auburn Reporter named him its Person of the Year.
