Redmond Swoops In To Save Kenmore’s Cancelled Low-Income Housing Project "On Tuesday night, the Redmond City Council approved moving forward with a land transfer that will allow Plymouth Housing to construct 100 units of permanent supportive housing on a city-owned parcel in downtown Redmond. Redmond’s quick action is set to allow Plymouth to keep an otherwise fully-funded project designed to provide housing for people directly exiting homelessness intact, without the planned funding and land from Kenmore. The vote was 5-1, with Councilmember Jeralee Anderson the sole no." (The Urbanist)

Federal Grant In Hand, RapidRide J Line Heads Toward Construction "The timeline to build the $128 million project is set to be around three years, with RapidRide service planned to start in 2027.
