The City is currently working on a project with King County Historic Preservation that will offer increased benefits to owners of historic properties listed on the Redmond Heritage Resource Register or see the related View from History article).
In order to offer additional benefits to these property owners, the King County Landmarks Commission will designate each of the properties as either a City or Community Landmark at four public hearings scheduled between March and July. The hearing dates, locations and properties under consideration are noted next.
For more information about this project, including the incentives available to property owners, please contact:
You drive to work and drop the kids off at school on your way. For your morning break, you walk to get coffee. At lunch you ride in someone else’s car to eat at a nearby restaurant. On your drive home you stop at the grocery store and then pick up the kids at soccer. In the evening you hop in the car to visit a friend. After that you get back in the car to go home.
Whatever may be your typical day of getting around; the City’s transportation engineers are interested in identifying your needs in planning the future of transportation in Redmond.
Later this spring, Redmond’s Transportation Services Division will solicit residents and those who work in Redmond to participate in a travel behavior survey. Travel diaries, as they are also known, are designed to record a person’s movements over a prescribed period of time. They are also an efficient way for the City’s transportation engineers to get a better understanding of travel patterns in Redmond. Those who take part in the two-day travel behavior survey will note such things as trip time and frequency, destination and mode of travel used to get there. The data gathered from the survey results will become one of the significant tools used to update the
City's Transportation Master Plan.

With Sound Transit’s plans to bring light rail to Overlake, City of Redmond transportation planners and engineers are looking to turn 152 Avenue NE into an outstanding street.
152 Avenue NE is a key corridor in Overlake Village, the area’s retail center. The community’s vision for this corridor is a vibrant, busy roadway with a distinctive character and a lively pedestrian environment. It is expected to become a social hub of activity and the heart of Overlake Village, supported by multi-modal transportation options. Integrated stormwater facilities, parks and open spaces, special streetscapes and urban trails are some of the amenities planned for this neighborhood.
Outcomes of stakeholder meetings and a public open house held at City Hall on February 24 are helping City staff and consultants arrive at preferred alternatives for the 152 Avenue NE corridor. A second public meeting will be held this spring to present these alternatives to the community and get additional feedback before a recommended plan is proposed to City officials.
