Kudos to City median team

On July 27, 2012, the Auburn Reporter had an article on the front page titled, "Messy medians steam City". This newsworthy article was the result of a debated City Council Municipal Services Committee (MSC) meeting. The topic of "city median" wasn't new to City Council committee meetings. Former Deputy Mayor Sue Singer used to harp about "medians" until she was blue in the face.

Because of an assigned MSC subcommittee led by Councilmembers Wayne Osborne (vice chair) and Largo Wales, City Parks and Recreation Director Daryl Faber and City Planner Gary Yao, a City of Auburn Median Design & Maintenance Guidelines procedure was developed.

This median team had a few meetings and planning sessions. The median procedure has already changed some medians using the new guidelines, such as the ones at Highway 18 and Auburn Way South and areas on 15th Street Northwest.

The City will continue to make us proud of our medians throughout Auburn. Thank you, team.

– Bill Peloza, City Councilmember
