Ready for a BIG Earthquake?

I am not sure how many of us were up at 5:30 in the morning on Friday to feel the 4.0 earthquake. I sure wasn't but my next-door neighbor was (she is my hero). Some say that right before "the big one" we will be warned by some small earthquakes in the area. Uh-oh!

The City of Renton has produced a brief online education video to help citizens be prepared in the event of a disaster.

You can also view it on TV Ch 21:
Mondays: 3:30 a.m., 5:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m.
Tuesdays, Thursdays: 12:30 a.m., 4:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m.
Wednesdays, Fridays: 2:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m.

Report from the Winter 09 NRNA Meeting

Hello All. We had a good turn out at the neighborhood meeting,last Thursday. We missed all who could not make it.

Linda Knight, the Solid Waste Coordinator with the City, explained everything we needed to know about the new garbage pickup program. Did you know you can mix your chicken bones in with your yard waste?

Suzanne Dale Estey, Director of Economic Development, wrapped the night up with new developments at the landing. Also we learned our neighborhood will be one of the first involved with the new city planning zones.

Thanks to all for coming

Crazy Weather!

From snow and windstorms in December to flooding in January, it makes one wonder, what is next?

SNOW: Our North Renton neighbors came together to enjoy the weather and we were very fortunate that our city cleared most of our streets of snow.

RAIN: The Cedar River sure is a sight to see... check out the photos on our neighborhood website. You won't believe your eyes.
