This year's conference included a Green Economy Track. Joining the growing Green Economy in Washington State. Understand what the Green Economy is about and the existing resources available for use.

Snohomish was recognized for promoting a growing economy.

The City's Bickford Avenue Cemetery Creek Sewer Trunkline project was recognized for promoting a growing economy by undertaking a strategic infrastructure investment that has brought measurable benefit to our community at the Governor's Economic and Workforce Development Conference on September 4th in Lynnwood.

Seven other economic development projects and twenty-two workforce projects from throughout the state were also recognized. Bob Drewel, director of the Puget Sound Regional Council and former Snohomish County Executive, received the Governor's Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Trunkline project has allowed for the development of Snohomish Station which, when fully leased, will provide over 550 new jobs and will annually contribute approximately $500,000 to $1 million in retail sales tax to the City's General Fund. In addition to Snohomish Station, there is significant residential development and numerous other commercial projects.

Using these same standards in the South Snohomish UGA and finally bringing them into the city limits would help the city acquire a portion of their 22.3 Million dollar annual impact. This would certainly be classified a "strategic investment that brings measurable benefit to our community". Possibly we would be recognized next year by the Governor again?
