I am a dog owner and I always run with my dog on leash, and she is under control. Unfortunately, many other dog owners think the law doesn't apply to their dog, and they walk the river trail and the power line trail with their dogs off leash. Sometimes their dogs attack my dog or me. Last Sunday I was bit by another off-leash dog, which I sprayed with mace. I asked the owner to control his dog, and he just stared ...more »
Police & Fire Strategic Planning
What are the services and expectations that you have for your police department & fire department as we grow towards the city vision of two urban centers and connected neighborhoods?
All content on this site is subject to the City of Redmond Social Media Policy.
We should have a Redmond police Bulletin that talks about recent crimes that have occurred, suspects to be on the lookout, community events etcetera.
I noticed we don't have one, or an easy way to find one, and I think it would make the city more aware of crimes and become more aware in safety, and their own community from the events.,
There's a crosswalk across from Audubon Elementary and a location at the end of 166th Court NE where the street is not well lit. These are currently on Public Works' list for adding street lights, but maybe a solar solution exists to power such a light at night. I'm familiar with solutions that could work without having to dig up the streets to bring power to the light pole.
I would like to see a return to the overhead sign across West Lake Samm. Pkwy at the intersection with 177th Ave NE and NE 36th Street.

This is not so much of an idea as maybe a call for an idea: how can we better support community members who are blind and can't easily see, or get around, all the sidewalk closures due to construction? What happens to our good friend Doug, who jogs down166th with Chumley, to get the Rapid Ride B bus over by the library, and to shop and live his life? He doesn't seem to have an easy way to know about these challenges, ...more »
Pedestrian traffic is heavy around the Redmond library, particularly at the end of the day, of folks coming to Redmond from Seattle via bus, and who park in City Hall open parking lot on NE 161st. This parking lot is a fantastic and well-used lot, that is a pleasant walk from the bus stop. I want to suggest that keeping this fantastic resource and already good idea going. It promotes walking. I often get off bus at ...more »
I want to see Officers accessible and on foot in parks, shops, and community areas. Use bike patrols to cut down on carbon footprint, and ease response through high traffic times.
