Neighbors to Walsh Hills development want road fixes

SNOHOMISH — Neighbors in the Terrace, Stoneridge and Northridge areas anxiously want their roads widened and improved before upward of 110 more households arrive into the Walsh Hills development in northeast Snohomish.
Many roads lack sidewalks and some are not wide. They were laid down decades ago.
Residents noted schoolchildren stood in the middle of the street when it snowed because there is no sidewalk, for example. For months, residents have been addressing City Council calling on the city to make improvements before someone gets hurt.
D.R. Horton is building the Walsh Hills development. It was charged about $130,000 in city traffic mitigation fees. The funds go to the city’s general coffers for roads. The payment is not attached to improve roads in the vicinity.
City Councilwoman Karen Guzak suggested last week that neighbors might consider taxing themselves using a Local Improvement District to collect money dedicated to road improvements in their neighborhood.
