Looking for an enriching experience for your teen between the ages of 14 - 18? The City of Edmonds Sister City Commission will send a delegation of up to 15 students, ages 14 – 18, to their Sister City of Hekinan, Japan, during the summer of 2017 in mid-July for two weeks. Then, in early August, a student delegation from Hekinan will visit the Edmonds area for two weeks.
These student exchanges are part of the mission of the Edmonds Sister City Commission which is “to promote international communication and understanding through exchanges of people, ideas, and culture” and they have been taking place for over 23 years.
While in Hekinan, the students will stay with host families. Students and their families will be financially responsible for their roundtrip airfare, as well as a portion of the cost for chaperones. Edmonds area students who are interested in participating are encouraged to visit the Commission’s webpage for an application packet and more information. Application deadline has been extended to Thursday, March 23, 2017.
For an application packet click here or contact the Mayor's Office at 425.771.0247.
For more information visit the Commission's exchange programs webpage.
In 2016, a Pedestrian Safety Task Force was created due to a recent increase in the number of pedestrian accidents over the last several years. Their mission is to increase safety for pedestrians and other non-motorized traffic throughout the City through an education program and creative solutions. Their focus is currently on educating seniors, with the intent of extending to school kids in the near future. The group has been meeting on a monthly basis and the education program has started. Several presentations have recently been made to local groups, such as the Senior Center. The presentation addresses pedestrian safety issues and the skills needed to guarantee safe walking conditions. This includes significant emphasis on ways to improve night-time pedestrian safety.
In 2017, the committee is looking to make additional presentations in front of local groups. The presentation takes approximately 30 minutes and includes 10 minutes for Q&A.
If you are interested, please give Mr. Bertrand Hauss, City of Edmonds Transportation Engineer, a call at 425-771-0220 or send him an email at email@example.com.
Let’s get 2017 off to a great start by working together to improve your level of safety while walking around our beautiful town!”
