Lots of questions were answered. Some were not. Bev, a Redmond Arts Commissioner has an interest in bringing "green" and "interactivity" into the Art in the Connector (a linear park). A city arts consultant suggested using art themes to connect the entire linear park. Another consultant pointed out the nearby "Heron Rookery" as a unique Gateway feature next to the Connector.
One citizen had concerns of the "Wall" effect from the large, boxed apartment buildings. A Berger consultant agreed that the Connector appears to have it's back to the apartments. Discussion ensued with an agreement that future buildings near the Connector should blend and flow like a river rather than look as a ditch.
The City Council had a study session on the Central Connector the night before, but many still showed up. Hank Margeson, Hank Myers, Pat Vache' and Mayor Marchione were all available.
