10 years ago 1998

n A new traffic light and road improvements aren't the only changes about to take place at the intersection of 172nd Street NE and 67th Avenue NE. The 8.8 acres at the northeast corner of the intersection, bordering Highland View Estates, are about to become part of the city of Arlington. If that happens, the area will be slated for "neighborhood commercial" development, which calls for retail business such as clothing and accessory stores, barber shops, grocery stores and gas stations and professional services. It does not allow construction of single-family homes, but does allow apartments on a second or third story above a business. The Arlington City Council last week approved a 60 percent petition on the area owned by Hong Ly. Ly, the only property owner in the proposed annexation submitted a 10 percent notice of intention to annex three months ago. The annexation next goes for a review to Snohomish County. Because of the small size of the proposed annexation and because all the property is owned by one person, the process is expected to go quickly and, if no snags develop, could be completed in a couple of months.

Normally, most of us think of June as summer. After all, June is when our kids go on summer vacation. June also contains the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. In fact, after June 21, the days actually start getting shorter (now there's a depressing thought). So the feeling that June should be summer is fairly normal. Except that in the northwest, summer really doesn't start until July (some would say July 5th).
