For our friends who commute south on SR203.

Heads up east King County: A slow-moving slide has created a large crack in the pavement on SR 203 between Carnation and Duvall, and while the road is safe for travel, we will be alternating traffic at milepost 8.5 (near NE Stillwater Hill Road) until further notice while our geotech engineers assess the situation and we determine a fix. We've reduced the speed limit to 35 mph through the open lane. Drivers should be prepared for delays - especially in the AM and PM commutes - follow the speed limit and be alert for road workers in the area.

We’d like to thank Monroe residents' Amy Martin and Ian Fairweather who donated their 7’ Douglas Fir Living Christmas tree to Monroe's Parks Department to be planted in a City Park. Their tree has been planted at the north end of Lake Tye. We look forward to seeing it grow in years to come.

The recent rain event has contributed to the highest flow on record at the City's wastewater treatment plant. Yesterday's daily flow reached 5.04 MG at its peak surpassing the previous record of 3.91 MGD set during last month's rain event. Despite the extreme amounts of water the wastewater treatment plant continues to meet effluent requirements.

Mayor Geoffrey Thomas

Thank you Mayor Thomas and Monroe City Council for supporting #Finish522

With the flooding in the Snoqualimie Valley and a landslide across Novelty Hill Road, everyone in our region is being impacted in their travels. On these days, the need to invest in our state routes and highways becomes even more apparent than other commute days. Improvements to these roads rely on funding from the State and Federal levels of government.

I'm headed to Olympia today, a third time this legislative session, to advocate again for funding for our road system - both for US-2 and SR-522. In Olympia today, I'm joining a coalition of business people, community members, and other elected officials to to meet with legislators about US-2. At 3:30, I'll provide public testimony at the State Senate Transportation Committee in support for SR-522 and other transportation needs that are part of the proposed "Forward Washington" bill. From Monroe, I'll be joined by Monroe CIty Councilmember Heather Rousey. I thank our City Council for adopting a resolution in support of these needed transportation improvements at last night's City Council meeting.

If you would like to share your thoughts about our transportation needs, please contact your legislators. To get contact information for your legislators, please check out the following link: https://app.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder/.

Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who braved the rain and joined us this past Saturday for our HGTV photo shoot. We love our community!

Saturday morning, we had the fun task of getting a bunch of people together, short notice, to take a community picture and video for the upcoming HGTV Hometown Takeover application. We had so much fun in the short 15 minutes, it will be one of my fondest memories of Monroe, ever. Please enjoy the pictures I took while Tyler was taking the video, Katie was in the boom-lift taking the group shot, and Mayor Thomas was being our Community Coach for the moment. Thank you everyone who participated and for everyone who wanted to participate but couldn't make it, we may be doing this again in August. Stay tuned. ~Teresa Willard

Homeless Policy Recommendations
On Thursday, January 16, the Homelessness Policy Advisory Committee (HPAC) finalized its recommendations to address homelessness in Monroe. The Monroe city council is tentatively scheduled to discuss the recommendations at its February 18, 2020 study session. The meeting starts at 7pm and is open to the public. There is an opportunity for public comment at the beginning of the meeting.

Recommendations are divided into six categories – housing, partners, prevention, policy and budget, public safety, and support services. Public comment from the November open house and the committee’s final recommendations are available on the city’s website at http://www.monroewa.gov/801/Homelessness-Policy-Advisory-Committee.

The committee’s recommendations acknowledge that homelessness is not simply a Monroe issue. Homeless individuals live and travel throughout the Sky Valley region. Successful programs will need to include partners and involve solutions that are region wide. The city and its partners must work to develop programs in all Sky Valley communities including Monroe. The committee’s recommendations also recognized the importance of accountability and promoting self-reliance. In order to end homelessness in Monroe, the city will need support from state and federal legislators to encourage developers to build more affordable housing and assist law enforcement.

The committee is an ad hoc advisory board formed by Mayor Thomas and confirmed by the city council in 2019 . The committee has been meeting since last April to provide a forum for the coordination of information among local citizens and stakeholders to seek thoughtful, effective, and lasting solutions to homelessness in Monroe. The HPAC includes business owners, residents, and non-profit organizations that help the homeless.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!!! God loves you so much, and so do we!
Any chance you could get someone to look at the patch on Old Owen Rd just up the hill past the motel where the road is badly sagging and cracked? It has been reported multiple times and nothing has been done. It is a long fall from there straight into a freezing creek. With all the school buses using that road, it is a big worry.
Is crescent lake road open yet?
522 traffic is absolutely unacceptable. What are you doing about it? What is anyone doing about it? It’s basically punishing drivers for working.
Amazing things are happening at 7-11 new management!!
I’m wondering how many forms, online comments and citizens requesting in person at City Hall will it take to get the existing crosswalk painted at 179th and 158th just up from Park Place Middle? We have now been stopped by 2 neighbors to say they have gone in to City Hall to request this be done. Not to mention my repeated comments on this very FB page AND filling out the request form that City Hall said to fill out. I’ve lived in this particular house for over 4 years, and have been waiting for the City to take care of this the entire time. We see City vehicles travel up and down this road daily. It seems as if there should be some attention paid to this major traffic route near a school and a home for the Elderly. What will it take to get this done. Are you waiting for someone to get hit by a car? Again, this is an existing crosswalk. We are not asking for the City to put one in where there wasn’t one before. Please put the citizens safety on your priority list.
I just checked the calendar and didn't see an annual Spring Cleanup. Will there be one?
If someone lost a white husky or Akita-ish looking dog, it just came up to our car on Rivmont off Calhoun. It ran off down toward Calhoun when we tried to get her collar. We tried looking but there’s too many trees and open yards.
Hi there! Anyone missing this little guy? He was wondering in my place. Please contact me. He's doing ok. I can't keep him for to long .
