ublic Works is seeking to put a 2,300 square footwater treatment facility in Anderson Park, the City’soldest public gathering place. The corner seen above isthe most likely spot for the two-story structure thatwould include a three-story tower in the form of a silo.After hearing concerns raised by the ParksCommission and studying the proposal, the RedmondHistorical Society’s board unanimously drafted astatement opposing the project as it was presented andasking the City to re-think it. In addition, nearly 40people at our last general meeting signed a petitionnoting concerns about the proposal.We hope to update membersat the February meeting andin the March newsletter.But if you, like theboard, feel stronglyagainst such a larg estructure for such adelicate park, pleasecontact our officials atmayorcouncil@redmond.gov or 425.556.2101.

. These teachers were favorites withmany Redmond schoolchildren.And of course we all heard the story one moretime about Miss Buterac throwing a student out thewindow by their hair. I don’t know if that ever reallyhappened, but the story went around at thebeginning of each school year. True or not, we allbelieved it. And what about school discipline? Theshop teacher usually dealt the “board” of educationto the seat of learning. Physical punishment issomething lost to history and probably for the good.By the way, remember

Avondale Road ~ and is still in use.Speaking of buildings being torn down, the old City Hall is gone and thebeautiful new replacement sits like a shining star at the heart of our City. Thefaçade is a mixture of copper and glass and this sunny morning it was gleamingin the sunlight. Martinek’s Blueberry Farm is gone, but we have a beautifulcampus for our City.Take a walk around town ~ there is lots to see. We have our historicbuildings and parks along with the latest architectural designs. Later this yearwe will resume our historic walking tours of Redmond. You might want tojoin us and learn more about the old buildings you see every day.
