Page 12 Lake Stevens Journal September 28, 2011 City to implement A pedestrian flag pilot program JOURNAL STAFF If you are a pedestrian, you may find some bright orange flags at a crosswalk over the next few weeks. The City of Lake Stevens is planning to test the use of crossing flags at three marked crosswalks. The idea is based on the City of Kirkland's success- ful PedFlag program which has been in operation for several years and well received by the public. The intent is to heighten the awareness of both the motor— ist and the pedestrian when a pedestrian is trying to cross a busy street. The idea is that a pedestrian holds out a flag when crossing to help the motorist see them. The locations for the pilot program are at the downtown Post Office on Main Street, Lundeen Boulevard at Lundeen Park, and North Davies adjacent to the Hawkins House. The bright orange plastic flags will be one foot square with a wood handle. ' After operating for several weeks, the City will seek input from the public on how well they feel the flags are working. It is hoped that this will help to enhance safety for pedestrians.

Not only did many of our local firefighters and police sign—up to play on their day off, those who came to sup- port their favorite team also donated over 500 items for local families in need. Donations poured in for the Lake Stevens Food Bank as well as the Lake Stevens Family Center—both worthy causes and both in need of support from the commu— nity. Police Explorers were on hand to collect, count and load the donations. Again, they showed up in their free time. Iwas also able to attend the first Relay for Life Commit— tee meeting for the 2012 Lake Stevens Relay. I am amazed at all of those who are willing to put in countless hours to help fight cancer and bring Lake Stevens together in a fun, heart-warming event. Just imagine the hundreds of hours spent each month volunteering on behalf of our beloved community. The service clubs who meet on a regular basis, the churches whose members donate time serving one another, stu- dents earning their service hours by helping out where needed and all of those who donate their time and talents behind the scenes—it’s is truly awesome what is . accomplished by these selfless residents. Our amazing city would not be the same without those who are willing to serve and make it better! Thank you to all of you!
