What do you think of the Parks Commission’s recommendation to build a dog park at the site of the future sports park on Southeast 95th Way?

Can we just build it somewhere — anywhere — and move on to other things, like safe sidewalks on all major roads around Newcastle?

I’m still waiting for the library and athletic fields Sonny Putter and the rest of the City Council promised 10 years ago when I first moved into the community. Nothing against dogs or dog owners, but I am curious how the city of Newcastle manages its priorities. If the Parks Commission has recommended a dog park as a priority over a park kids can use, I’d recommend they become outwardly mobile.

What would you think if the Renton School District built a middle school where Renton Academy now stands?

I think it would benefit the residents of Newcastle. When my son missed the school bus, he had to cross May Creek to walk to McKnight, and his route was much shorter than most Newcastle middle schoolers. In contrast, the Crosstown Trail goes directly there, with only one road crossing between Lake Boren Park and Hazelwood School. A re-established branch trail could get students to a middle school on the Renton Academy site just before reaching the Hazelwood school grounds.

It would be great to have a middle school and high school in Newcastle. According to the Realtor who talked me into buying my house, Newcastle is part of the coveted Issaquah School District. So, why are the Newcastle schools in Renton and what is the Renton School District doing in Newcastle? I’d ask my Realtor, but after the house closed he won’t return my calls.

I am 100 percent in favor of it, and I hope it happens before my children enter middle school in 2017!

Only if the baseball diamonds and soccer fields could be continued to be used by neighbors and the Newcastle kid baseball and soccer leagues.

Happy to welcome anything new to the community.
