More August events
Two Dog Island, founded 15 years ago by former Nordstrom executive (and Madison Park resident) Galen Jefferson, will be previewing its new fall line with a trunk show at Ropa Bella this week. Two Dog Island’s focus is on “high quality casual separates for women,” beginning—but not ending—with comfy sweatshirts. The show will be underway from 2 until 7 pm on Thursday, August 25 at the store (1928 43rd Avenue E.)
The Arboretum is requesting public input concerning a “preferred alternative” to the “preliminary conceptual design” for the park’s new North Entry and Multi-Use Trail. The revision to the original plan is being made as the result of earlier public input after the initial plan was presented in June. Those interested will get their opportunity to see the changes and provide their reactions at a public meeting on Wednesday, August 31 (6:30 to 8 pm) to be held at the Graham Visitors Center (2300 Arboretum Drive E.). The new design for the North Entry presupposes the demolition of the SR 520 ramps, which seems to be a foregone conclusion at this point.
