Name new school
The Lake Stevens School District is looking for a name for Elementary School No. 7, which is under construction. People can submit ideas at lkstevens.wednet.edu until Friday.
Names should represent the area and have some historical or geographic significance. They shouldn’t conflict with the names of other schools in the area. While the school may be named after a historical figure, it is not to be named after anyone still living. Officials plan to submit three to five names to the school board during its Nov. 9 meeting. For more information, email Jayme Taylor at jayme_taylor @lkstevens.wednet.edu.
Talk about road improvements: Officials from Snohomish County, local cities and the Tulalip Tribal government are hosting a meeting Wednesday to discuss ways to ensure that local transportation infrastructure keeps pace with development.
The event, sponsored by Snohomish County Tomorrow, is planned for 6:15 p.m. in the first-floor meeting room of the county’s Robert Drewel building at 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett. The county’s top roads manager, Doug McCormick, is scheduled to deliver a talk about innovative ways to ease congestion, as well as what other agencies, community members and businesses can do to help.
