Parking changes near Cascade Ridge Elementary School

NEW — 6 a.m. Sept. 15, 2014

Cascade Ridge Elementary School parents may be affected by parking changes along Trossachs Boulevard.

The city of Sammamish recently classified the west side of Trossachs bordering the school as a no-parking zone. The narrow lane on that side of the road is now labeled as a bike lane and is designed for that purpose.

School officials urge parents to plan ahead if they use the area as a drop-off or pick-up point for their children. Parents may walk to school with their children, park in the school’s lot or park along Trossachs in the lanes south of the school.

Elections

Election results finalized

Final primary election results differed little from election night, setting the stage for the November general election.

In the judicial race, Lisa O’Toole, of Newcastle, looks like she could cruise to victory, having garnered more than 60.5 percent of the primary vote in a three-way race. Her opponent will be Sammamish’s Marcus Naylor, who earned a little more than 20 percent. Snoqualmie’s Rick Leo got 19 percent, and will not move on to the general election.

The only other contested race in Sammamish was for U.S. Congress, where incumbent Rep. Dave Reichert (R-8) also looks good in November. He won nearly 59 percent of the vote in another three-way primary. Jason Ritchie (D) got almost 32 percent while Keith Arnold got less than 9 percent. Reichert and Ritchie will appear on the general election ballot.
