This week in history from The Arlington Times archives 10 years ago 1998

• Let the people vote. That was the gist of an offer made last week to Arlington officials by Smokey Point residents who have been fighting becoming a part of the city of Arlington for nearly three years. Members of Save Our Community and Schools told Arlington Mayor Bob Kraski, City Administrator Thom Myers and Councilwoman Sally Lien at a meeting at Weller's Family Restaurant last Tuesday that the group would stop fighting the annexation if the city would agree to put the matter to a vote. "It's a proposal for settlement," said SOCS attorney Mickie Jarvill. If the city drops the current annexation proposal and agrees to pursue the annexation by the election method, SOCS would dismiss its appeal and collect signatures for another petition for annexation of the area this time by the election method. The annexation by election method counts voters rather than property owners. The more common annexation method is to gather signatures of property owners accounting for 60 percent of the property value of a specific area. "The proposal is: we want to vote," Jarvill said. "A great deal of the resistance to annexation in the community stems from the fact that most people did not have a say. The objection across the board is the decision is not being made by the community and the community has not been properly involved in the decisions being made." The bulk of the residents weren't asked about annexation in the first place because gerrymandering of the annexation boundaries excluded most of the residential development, Jarvill said. Then the settlement between the cities of Marysville and Arlington and Snohomish County was made behind closed doors. "Once again the community was not allowed to participate in the process. That created a great deal of animosity," Jarvill said.
