2013 Redmond Neighborhood Network and Redmond Ready on April 17, 2013 - Are You Ready?
Education Hill, North Redmond, and Sammamish Valley neighborhoods will meet on April 17, 2013 at Horace Mann Elementary (17001 NE 104th Street) for this year's Neighborhood Network conversation. This year's series includes a brief Redmond Ready workshop to help you, your neighbors, and your entire neighborhood prepare for disasters and emergencies.
Did you know that by being prepared, you can secure your home and family and then help others in need?

The Transportation Master Plan Update
We are updating the Transportation Master Plan.
The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) sets a course for Redmond to follow in developing and managing its transportation system. It also sets a course for the City’s involvement with other cities and agencies in developing regional networks, including a High Capacity Transit system connecting centers in Redmond with centers throughout the Puget Sound region. The TMP describes programs, projects and actions to be taken by the City from now to the year 2022. The TMP also describes the ultimate multimodal transportation network that Redmond will achieve as the City approaches “build out” in the years after 2022.
Last Year's Neighborhood Network In Education Hill
On April 7, 2011, Education Hill residents joined Redmond City officials and staff to discuss the neighborhood. Piloted in 2010 in the Grass Lawn and Education Hill neighborhoods, the Neighborhood Network meeting is a new annual venue for Redmond's citizens to communicate with the City.
This is what community members shared through an online questionnaire.
Neighbors also shared their thoughts with staff and City officials in person during the Neighborhood Network and 2011 Citizen Academy series. Here is a compilation of those thoughts as well as staff's suggestions.
We look forward to working with you again as we begin to review your ideas and suggestions.

Join us as a Neighborhood Steward
With the 2011 Redmond Neighborhood Network, neighborhood stewards started addressing small neighborhood-based projects and goals. Please consider taking part in helping shape your neighborhood as well.
Contact Kimberly Dietz or call 425-556-2415 with questions and for additional information.
During the 2010 Neighborhood Network pilot, over 90 citizens took part in a Neighborhood Questionnaire. The questions included:
- What is your favorite aspect of the neighborhood?
- What do you suggest for possible Neighborhood Matching Fund projects in 2011?
- What neighborhood goal would you like to accomplish in 2011?
- What do you suggest the City assist with or address in the neighborhood?
- What are your greatest concerns regarding the neighborhood, today and during the next twenty years?
Concerns focused on transportation and vegetation. For example, many responded with favoring the existing vegetation and wanting to preserve and maintain the green character of the neighborhood. As well, many described how they enjoy walking along trails and sidewalks and want to increase transportation choices thereby reducing motor vehicle trips. Support for the Redmond pool (which has reopened) was another recurring theme.
