  • Seattle City Council to consider SR 520 O&M agreement

    SDOT is asking the Seattle City Council to approve an operations and maintenance agreement that lays out the future roles of the city and state following completion of the State Route 520 West Approach Bridge South replacement that will come with added public amenities.

  • The National Hockey League’s Board of Governors voted unanimously on Tuesday, Dec. 4, to approve an expansion that will make Seattle home to the 32nd NHL franchise team beginning in the 2021-22 season.
    “Seattle, the NHL is thrilled to welcome you,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman during a Tuesday news conference. “I know, obviously, that those words are words that the passionate and patient fans in Seattle have longed to hear.”
    The Seattle team, which still lacks a name, will play in the NHL’s Pacific Division, the board also voting Tuesday to move the Arizona Coyotes into the Central Division.

    Seattle’s MVPs behind the KeyArena’s clearance for an $850 million expansion broke ground on the two-year project on Wednesday, Dec. 5, a day after hockey fans learned the city will once again be home to an NHL team.

    The iconic roof to the KeyArena will be raised and preserved during construction, as developer Oak View Group expands the arena from 400,000 square feet to 750,000, which involves going an additional 15 feet down.

  • (StatePoint) Did you know that the choices your local grocery store makes can have a global impact on the environment? From the types and brands of seafood sold to the way foods are packaged and carried out of the store, oceans worldwide are affected by the operations of grocers near you.
    Fortunately, supermarkets across the country have made significant progress over the last 10 years when it comes to providing sustainable seafood options to customers, according to a new Greenpeace report, “Carting Away the Oceans.” From advocacy and transparency initiatives to addressing illegal fishing, many major retailers nationwide are improving. Overall, 90 percent of the retailers profiled in the report received passing scores, 10 years after every single retailer failed Greenpeace’s first assessment. However, experts say that the momentum of this positive trend should be applied to other areas of sustainability, too.
  • Sound Transit  board clears RapidRide improvement project to proceed

    The Sound Transit Board of Directors last Thursday approved a project to improve RapidRide C and D routes ahead of construction of the West Seattle and Ballard Link light rail extensions, as well as amending the 2018 budget to cover the costs of a preliminary engineering phase.

    The RapidRide C route runs from Westwood Village to South Lake Union, while RapideRide D runs from Crown Hill to Downtown, with stops in Ballard and Uptown.

  • Tom Nissley is hopeful he can open Madison Books in Madison Park by November, filling a void felt in the neighborhood for more than a decade.

    “We just get that there’s this hunger for having this store right in the middle of everything,” said Nissley, who has owned Phinney Books in Phinney Ridge since 2014.
    The bookstore wasn’t his idea, but that of longtime resident Susan Moseley, who spent some time reaching out to potential partners before tapping Nissley.

  • Final EIS released on $700M KeyArena renovation
    The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections has published the final environmental impact statement for the $700 million KeyArena renovation project that could start construction this fall.
  • Seattle could have ended up looking a lot different, and transit advocates would have a lot more to worry about, if a coalition of concerned residents hadn’t stepped up 50 years ago.
  • Sometimes, people bring fears with them into the kitchen. 
    It’s something Hsiao-Ching Chou has seen first hand, both in her time as a food editor and a cooking instructor.
  • Seattle neighborhoods have options for emergency preparedness
  • New Seasons Market, a Portland-based grocery store chain, invited neighbors and community members to join the opening day and “Bread Breaking” celebrations to mark the opening of its newest store in the Ballard neighborhood.

    The “friendliest store in town,” located at 951 NW Ballard Way, marks the second Puget Sound location for Portland-based New Seasons Market.

  • Stampede Cocktail Club not afraid of fun
    Out in Fremont for a late night? Not sure where you can get some dumplings, an inventive cocktail and an Instagram photo of a dinosaur head?
  • The newspapers, TV, and radio stations were all agog, as were several county and city elected leaders, downtown chamber types, and other assorted poobahs. Late last January, after some saccharine speeches and the prerequisite obsequious genuflection by our Mayor and County Executive to the God of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, the spheres finally were open to view in South Lake Union…well sort of….
  • The leader of a heroin distribution ring who laundered the proceeds back to his native Ecuador was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to 57 months in prison, announced U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes.
  • After man killed in double hit-and-run, questions for Sand Point Way safety arise

    On April 30, David Allen was struck and killed by two motorists while at an intersection on Sand Point Way Northeast.

    Both motorists fled the scene, leaving Allen to die in the road near Seattle Children’s Hospital.

  • County council approves paid-postage ballots
    King County will be the first county in the state to offer paid-postage ballots, the county council voting by a wide margin to cover those estimated costs for the 2018 primary and general elections.
  • Nordic Heritage Museum opens, paves way for new Nordic connections
    Years of planning and preparation were on display on Saturday, May 5 at the Nordic Heritage Museum’s grand opening in Ballard.
  • Trailbend Taproom opens quietly in Ballard’s booming brewery district
    Tucked away discreetly in one of Seattle’s densest beer neighborhoods, Trailbend Taproom opened in Ballard.
  • Mayor Jenny Durkan’s announcement that she wants the city to come up with a plan for “congestion pricing,” tolling surface streets in downtown and South Lake Union, is the latest city policy meant to sound and feel good, but that is deeply delusional and throws Seattle’s working poor under the bus - in this case, literally.
