City of Everett Re-names Everett Mall Neighborhood Twin Creeks

August 29, 2012

Everett, Everett Government

This afternoon the city of Everett officially re-named the neighborhood that stretches from Evergreen Way to the West, I-5 to the East, Everett Mall Way to the North and 112th Street to the South as Twin Creeks. The neighborhood had formerly been known as Everett Mall Way South but according to Michael Trujillo, who is President of the newly re-named association, one neighbor complained about the Everett Mall name saying they didn’t want to be associated with a neighborhood named for a mall. Trujillo spoke at the dedication of a small sign marking the new neighborhood this afternoon. He said that an extensive discussion was had over the name and while Twin Cedars was a contender, Twin Creeks won out. During the dedication Everett Mayor Ray Stephenson spoke of his desire for Everett to have strong neighborhoods and also referred to a large police presence at the dedication as evidence of a strong commitment to neighborhood policing. The sign is located at the corner of Olivia Park Drive and Everett Mall Way. There are 19 distinct neighborhoods in Everett. You can click here to visit the Twin Creeks neighborhood page.

    The community celebration of the Dedication of the new Twin Creeks sign yesterday was a great success! Speakers included Mayor Ray; County Executive Aaron Reardon; Adam LeMieux, Deputy District Director for Congressman Rick Larsen; Police Chief Kathy Atwood; Fire Department Office of Emergency Management Outreach Director, Mary Schoenfeld; Office of Neighborhoods Director Deborah Wright; Pat McClain, Strategic Advisor to the Mayor; Craig Goldsmith, Property Manager, Coast Management. There were also several members of the press, as well as several representatives of other City neighborhoods. Several neighborhood residents also came to support the event, including John Williams, former Chair of the Cascade View Neighborhood Association. Finally, I want to clarify that, although the Twin Creeks sign is brand new, the neighborhood’s name was changed just over a year ago by a unanimous vote at a neighborhood meeting. Your story said the name was new also. Thanks for publicizing our community event, Leland!
