Sponsors and contributors to the work include the Woodinville Rotary Club; King County; Banner Bank; Land and Water Conservations; Jamba Juice; New Life Christian Fellowship; University of Washington, Bothell, employees; Adventure School students from Kirkland and the Woodinville High School track/cross-country team.

Land-transfer hearing is Oct. 15
The Metropolitan King County Council will hold a public hearing at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 15 about transferring 24 acres to the city of Kenmore.
The property is near the intersection of Northeast 192nd Street and 80th Avenue Northeast.
The county bought the undeveloped land in 2006 as part of Brightwater treatment-plant construction. The land now is involved in a mitigation agreement between the city and county dealing with effects of the treatment plant on the city. Under the agreement, the land would be transferred to the city in about 2010 and could be used only for park, open-space and recreational purposes.
The hearing will be in Room 1001 at the King County Courthouse, 516 Third Ave., Seattle.
Copies of the proposed ordinance are available at the council clerk's office in Room W-1039 at the courthouse and online at www.metrokc.gov/mkcc/clerk.
