Discounts Being Applied At Walter Hall Due To Damaged Greens

Almost every green at the course is affected.

Golfers on Tuesday said the greens were “terrible”

Heard from some golfers over the weekend that the greens at Walter Hall golf course in Everett, WA were in “terrible shape” and the course was offering discounts to try and make up for the poor condition. We reached out to the City of Everett for an explanation and received the following email from Kimberley Cline, Director of Communications for the city.

The greens at Walter Hall are not satisfactory at this time. The damage affects most of the greens to varying degrees. We don’t yet know the cost of the damage, or how long it will need to repair; we’re actively working on a solution and more information will be available soon. And yes – as your golfer friend shared, we’re discounting the greens fees at Walter Hall due to the current condition of the greens. Legion Memorial Golf Course has not had the same issue.

We’ll let you when we find out what happened, what the costs will be and who will cover those costs.

Vaccinated Or Not – Masks Now Required At Everett Library Branches

Both the main Everett Library and the south Everett branch on Evergreen Way are now requiring everyone to wear a mask while visiting. Here’s a message posted by Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin on Facebook Monday announcing the decision.

Masks are back at Everett libraries.

(Starting tomorrow) patrons to the Everett Public Library will be required to wear a mask, regardless of their vaccination status. Throughout this pandemic we have been working in close partnership with Snohomish County DEM and the Snohomish Health District to do what we can to keep this community safe. To fight climbing cases, our Health Officer is now urging residents to mask up in public indoor spaces to further reduce risk. Our goal is to protect the health of ALL library patrons, especially those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19, those who due to a medical reason are unable to be vaccinated, and young children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine. We want the library to be a safe space for all. We will have masks available if you need one. If you do not wish to wear a mask, you can still access library resources through our curbside service:
If you haven’t yet been vaccinated, please do so. According to the Snohomish Health District, many areas of Everett have not yet reached a 60% vaccination rate. Getting the vaccine helps protect you from hospitalization and death from COVID-19, and your vaccination helps protect your loved ones, and our community.
Be safe. Be well.

Pedestrian Upgrades Coming To Airport Road In South Everett

Snohomish County Public Works has announced plans to upgrade access for pedestrians on Airport Road near Paine Field in south Everett next month.

Image provided by Snohomish County Public Works.

Snohomish County will install Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) devices and improve six pedestrian ramps along Airport Rd at the intersections of 100th St SW and 94th St SW in Everett. Upgraded ramps feature detectable warning surfaces and APS pushbuttons which trigger audio cues alerting visually impaired pedestrians to begin crossing the intersection.

Traffic impacts will be minimal and last approximately 10 days:

Beginning in mid-August, crews will work Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be single lane closures during construction, but two-way traffic will be functioning during and after construction hours.

Bus stops at project locations may be temporarily relocated within a close distance from normal stops. This affects Everett Transit northbound and southbound stops, one TransWest shuttle stop, and Swift northbound and southbound stops. Access to the Swift card reader for pedestrians will be maintained throughout the project.
Pedestrian access to crosswalks will be available throughout construction.
For more information, visit the project website.
