North Bend Weekly Recap: storm debris collection, opportunities to get involved, congrats, and more

Weekly Recap 01.26.24

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

I-90 right lane closure between MP 32 and 31: Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) crews began asphalt repair work on the right lane on westbound Interstate 90 (I-90) between mileposts 32 and 31 this week. Beginning January 22, the right lane will remain closed, with no estimated time of reopening.

Storm debris collection event for North Bend city residents: The City of North Bend will host a storm debris collection event for City residents on Saturday, February 3, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to collect residential wood debris from recent wind and ice storm events. The intent of this program is to help residents clear debris from multiple January ice and wind storms within city limits, not land clearing or commercial disposal. As cleanup continues, you may see Public Works crews out on and near city streets, clearing debris. Please take care and slow down. 

Congratulations to Mount Si High School Students: Kiana Sheehan, Sawyer Shelton, Sam Silverman, Neal Vedullapalli, Hailey Weir, and Ella Zabriskie were recognized at the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley’s Students of the Semester breakfast this week. Mayor Miller awarded Certificates of Recognition to the students, and thanked them for their outstanding academic achievements and commitment to our community.

An opportunity to join the Economic Development Commission: The City is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the Economic Development Commission! Help provide recommendations to the City Council for local economic growth and development, based upon work plans or projects as assigned by the City Council.

Help shape North Bend’s future by sharing feedback on land use and housing in North Bend: If you missed the January 3rd Public Workshop on Land Use and Housing Elements, Designations & Zoning, please connect with us by January 31 to provide your feedback! Doing so will help advise staff on drafting the 2024 Comp Plan update. Email comments to Economic Development Director Rebecca Deming, at rdeming@northbendwa.gov

January is National Mentoring Month in North Bend: Mayor Miller encourages those interested in becoming a youth mentor to contact Empower Youth Network and to thank current mentors for helping to ensure the success of our youth.

Online voting open for 2024 King Conservation District Board Election: King Conservation District (KCD) is holding its annual Board Supervisor election from January 23, through February 13, 2024. Three candidates are vying for the position: Brittney Bush Bollay, Aaron Ellig, and Erik Goheen. 

Keep up with the City on social media: One of the easiest ways to keep up with City happenings and breaking news is to follow us on social media. We are active on Facebook, X and Instagram. You can also find the City on NextDoor.

Picture of the Week: Multiple ice and windstorms in January led to downed trees, branches, power lines, and various other debris strewn throughout North Bend. Everyone is working hard to clean up. This week, Volition Brewing Co shared a photo of damaging debris that fell, and a photo of the debris all cleaned up. They wrote, “Our sincere gratitude for your support throughout the week. Let’s keep supporting the fantastic businesses in our community!”
