Snowplow and road closure on Norway Hill

February flurry hits Bothell 

Public Works crews have been busy responding to winter weather, including snow and ice. Overnight temperatures dropped, causing black ice in some places. 

Use caution if you must drive, leave extra following space and take it slow. 

Road closures continue on Norway Hill, where a tree fell Monday morning, taking down a power line. Those issues have been addressed but a Comcast cable remains on the roadway.

City facilities are open regular business hours today.

Wayne Golf Course update

A big thanks to the Fall 2016 University of Washington (Seattle) Landscape Architecture Class for providing concepts for the Wayne Golf Course Visioning process. Under the direction of Professor Ken Yocom, the landscape architecture students analyzed the golf course site and conceptualized potential uses for the property.

The process culminated with presentations to reviewers from OneBothell, City of Bothell, and the University of Washington. All the reviewers were very impressed with the work the students completed. The class and City hope to share an abbreviated summation of the students visioning work at a future City of Bothell Council meeting.
