The City Council passed a resolution at its July 6 meeting opposing a countywide increase in taxes to fund public safety. What do you think of this resolution?

I’m sure they had their reasons.

It is impossible to place a price on public safety services, but I totally support this resolution in view of our current economic downturn. The City Council has a tough job of making sure we don’t overspend while balancing the city’s budget.

I’m all for improving public safety. I would like to know specifically what that means for Newcastle.

The Parks Commission decided to move forward with building a dog park in the city. Next, it will look at possible locations in the city for the park. Where do you think the park should be located?

The north field of Lake Boren Park seems like a good location to me.

What? So, we have funds to build a dog park in the city?

Family’s allergic to dogs and cats. How’s the Newcastle border with Bellevue or Renton?

The city recently adopted its 2011-2016 Transportation Improvement Plan. It originally called for a second entrance to the Windtree neighborhood to be built at Southeast 88th Place, but the City Council cut the project. What do you think of the decision?

I’ve always heard about Windtree, but don’t exactly know where it is after living here for 10 plus years. Instead, I’d like to see funding for a complete sidewalk or at least a widened shoulder along 116th from Newcastle Way to 88th, and along 89th/88th from Coal Creek to the west.

I don’t know… thinking about the “public safety” aspect of a dog park!

— Thomas Tan, Newcastle

I’m still waiting for the park facility Sonny Putter promised when I moved into Newcastle 10 years ago; I remember it being in a plan once.
