Council approves development plan for neigborhood
The Mill Creek City Council gave unanimous approval Tuesday night, Jan. 9, to development plans for a new neighborhood adjoining the Sunrise division.
The Douglas plat will consist of 12 single-family homes, likely averaging about 3,000 square feet, on a single cul-de-sac street, 150th Place SE. It is located in Sunrise, just south of Mill Creek Elementary School and west of 35th Avenue SE. The main entry into the neighborhood is 33rd Avenue SE and Seattle Hill Road.
The street and sidewalks for the neighborhood are already completed, as is a small walking path from the end of 150th Place SE to 35th Avenue SE.
Way finding sign plan gets unanimous OK
The City Council also unanimously approved the city’s new directional sign plan at Tuesday’s meeting.
The plan will build new welcome signs at the city boundaries, as well as directional signs to help shoppers find city business districts, such as Town Center or the Thomas Lake Shopping Center.
The city plans to meet with local business owners to come up with names for other shopping areas, such as those whose anchor tenants are grocery stores like Albertsons and QFC. The first such meeting takes place at the Tuesday, Jan. 15 Mill Creek Business Association meeting.
“Rather than the city come up with a generic name, we’d rather have the business community decide what they want to call their area,” said Bill Trimm, the city’s community development director.
