North Bend Weekly Recap: Summerfest, Meet up with the Mayor, Parks Commission Opening and More

Weekly Recap 06.24.22

Happy Friday, North Bend! Welcome to the newest edition of your Weekly Recap. Enjoy the read and remember to click linked headlines for articles and posts. 

The air may be hot, but the water is cold: The weather is heating up here in North Bend, but the water is NOT. We are expecting our first heat event of '22 this weekend, possibly into early next week. Rivers continue to run high as a result of a record-setting cold and wet spring in our region. Please be careful out there! 

Eastside Fire and Rescue’s seasonal moratorium on outdoor burning is now in effect: The seasonal moratorium on outdoor burning is officially in effect, now through September 30th. As a precautionary measure to reduce fire danger, Eastside Fire & Rescue began the annual burning moratorium on June 15th.  

Wildfire reduction tips: After setting new rainfall records for June in multiple cities in the Puget Sound region, the traditional warm summer coupled with longer days and dry weather, is returning to our area. As the weather continues to warm and land dries out, brush fire risk will increase. In 2021, Washington state recorded the hottest and driest year on record. With North Bend’s proximity to the Cascade Mountains and surrounding nature comes an increased risk for wildland fires. But by working together residents can make their property – as well as their neighborhoods – much safer from wildfires. 

You can make a difference starting today. There are simple low-cost changes you can make around your home and your landscape to increase wildfire safety. Read on for tips, HERE. 

Summerfest at the North Bend Library: Summer Fest is almost here! The North Bend Library is hosting a fun, free outdoor event at our local library on Saturday, June 25, from 11 to 4 p.m. There will be games, crafts, performances and more, HERE

Meet up with the Mayor: Connect with Mayor Rob at our next Meet up with the Mayor event! Located at Huxdotter Coffee, from 10 - 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 29, Meet up with the Mayor is a great opportunity to chat about city-related topics that are important to you, and it's a fun way to get to know your mayor.

City seeking youth applicants for vacancy on Parks Commission: The City of North Bend is seeking youth between the ages of 16 and 18 who reside within the Snoqualmie Valley School District boundaries to fill a youth position on the Parks Commission. Youth interested in serving the community on this important Commission are urged to submit an application.
