Jarvill wants clarified what the BRB meant by the term "as submitted" in the motion to approved the proposal, from 152nd north to 175th, or the area modified and approved by the BRB that added the residential areas north of 175th, or Arlington's part of the negotiated agreement between Arlington, Marysville and Fire District No. 12.

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.
