More than a dozen people took their three-minute turn at the podium. "I think that the County Council should go out into the community, learn from us and lead from us," said Darrington resident Randy Rankin. "They need to investigate how rural businesses effect the communi- ty." Dennis lngram, an Arlington resident, said that he has been self-employed for 20 years as a mobile sawmill owner. "The American dream is to grow up and be your own boss," he said. "I have done this in a rural area and now I find out that I could possibly be operating illegally. I thought initiative is what America is all about." The council listened to residents' concerns for an hour-and-a-half before voting unanimously to close public testimony. By that time everyone who wanted to speak had been heard. No more public testimony is expected to be heard by the council. "These 30 complaints are just a sampling of rural businesses that are operating in rural areas," said Councilman Larsen. "They are creating jobs, paying taxes and for some fluke of the zoning laws are not operating legally. All 30 of the complaints came from my district." The Snohomish County Council will ineet again at 10:30 a.m. March 1 on the sixth floor of the Sno- homish County Administration Building at 3000 Rockefeller in Everett to further discuss rural zoning ordinance 00-003.

City development plan presented on March 20 ARLINGTON -- A presentation on the plans for the development of city-owned property along Olympic Avenue has been post- poned until the March 20 city council meeting. The Commons Advisory Com- mittee Final Report has been slated for discussion by the council last week, but because two coun- ciImembers were absent, the pre- sentation was delayed. The property in question, which was purchased by the city from the railroad in 1996, encompasses most of the property on the west side of Olympic Avenue from Third Street to Maple Street, excluding the existing railroad tracks. The proposal includes building a new city hall, police sta- tion and library, some new com- mercial buildings as well as creat- ing a public plaza that includes park space and more parking.
