The city of Kenmore is approaching its 15th birthday. Looking back over the years to our city’s incorporation in August of 1998, I am pleased with the progress we all have made together. Since incorporation, the city has invested more than $108 million in its infrastructure, including $79 million in roads. Bothell Way is a good example.
By landing state and federal grants and combining those grants with local dollars, the city has invested more than $67 million to improve Bothell Way, including segments of approaching connector streets and the Burke-Gilman Trail tunnel. Going from virtually no places for people to safely walk on Bothell Way to wide new sidewalks, has made a world of difference. We are now a more safe and walkable community. And new sidewalks aren’t the only benefit of the Bothell Way improvements – increased safety and capacity for cars, transit, and bicycles, as well as new landscaping, lighting and improved aesthetics are all part of the recent Bothell Way improvements.
David Baker is Mayor of Kenmore, Washington.
