Project Phase: In Construction
Estimated Timeline: Construction 2014
Contact: Lisa Singer, Project Manager, 425-556-2723
The Cleveland Streetscape project is on track to be completed around the end of 2014, with final work finishing in early 2015. The construction started in January 2014 and, as of the end of the September, the project will be two-thirds of the way complete. All of the utility work is complete; most of the illumination is finished; and the new traffic signal at Leary Way was turned on in August. Concrete work for the new roadway, parking areas and sidewalks is anticipated to be complete in early fall. The later fall schedule includes the installation of pavers, specialty lighting, benches, signs and landscaping.
The Cleveland Streetscape project enhances the developing community gathering place in the heart of downtown by widening sidewalks, improving the street to curbless, concrete, and preparing for eventual two-way street operation. The project is located in the heart of the historic downtown, between the future Downtown Park and the Redmond Central Connector Trail. Project features include signal improvements, sidewalks, on-street parking, street lighting, utilities, and landscaping.
Upon completion of the future Downtown Couplet Conversion project, both Redmond Way and Cleveland Street will be converted to two-way operations - anticipated early 2017. The Cleveland Streetscape and the Downtown Couplet Conversion projects are the final transportation stages in the implementation of the Downtown East/West Corridor Study (DEWCS), reinforcing downtown Redmond as an economically healthy, people-friendly place, enhanced by the movement of pedestrians, bikes, cars, and a diversity of businesses.

City of Redmond planning officials are hosting a second neighborhood meeting regarding the Anjumann E. Burhani Mosque project. Tonight’s meeting is a continuation from the first neighborhood meeting held on April 30, 2014 and will further collect input from community members that did not have an opportunity to share their questions at the first meeting.
At this time, the City is still in the data collection process with community members and will provide detailed answers to all questions received at a third neighborhood meeting; date and time to be determined.
Next steps - as a result of the April 30 neighborhood meeting and the questions fielded so far, City officials have asked the Anjumann E. Burhani applicants to provide additional project information in response to addressing the community’s questions and will no longer present this project at the May 15 Design Review Board meeting.
Once the City has determined the applicants have adequately addressed the issues, a third neighborhood meeting will be conducted to share the applicant’s updated information and answer all the additional community members’ questions. Until this process is completed no further project application action will be processed.

Upon serving a search warrant of Prohorov's vehicle and residence, police found property belonging to Redmond victims.
Victims reported wallets, purses, electronics and jewelry taken from their homes, with entry into the majority of residences appearing to be through unlocked rear sliding doors or windows. Credit and debit cards were used immediately after the burglaries in four of the cases. Investigators used footage from store surveillance where fraudulent transactions were made and fingerprints located at a burglary scene to identify Prohorov.
