Open House to View Conceptual Plans for Mill Creek’s Newest Park

The Mill Creek Parks & Recreation Board & Community Development & Recreation staff invite you to an Open House on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, to see the two conceptual plans created for the City’s newest park in the East Gateway neighborhood.  The concepts were created based on the input received at the Park Planning Work Shop on October 2nd.  Stop in any time between 6 & 8 p.m. and share your feedback on the two conceptual designs. Do tell.

Next Steps:

  • The Parks and Recreation Board will take the input received at the November open house and make a recommendation to the City Council on a preferred alternative.
  • The City Council will review the recommendation and take action on the Park Master Plan as soon as this November or December.
  • Construction on the park could begin as early as next spring.

Please visit the City’s website: & sign-up under Notify Me to be emailed notice of future meetings.  If you are unable to attend this meeting, but would like to see the conceptual plans & share your feedback, visit the Planning Department page of the City’s website or call Community Development staff at (425) 745-1891.

NW Bookfest Coming to Kirkland

nwbookfest-2013posterWhile it may be out of the city limits of Mill Creek, I thought many Mill Creekers would  like to hear about a great event coming up on  November 2nd & 3rd  between 8am-6pm.  Authors from around the Puget Sound region will be converging on Kirkland for the 2013 NWBookfest event: Navigating the Digital Age. This year’s Bookfest will be taking over the state -of -the art Health and Sciences facility on the beautiful Northwest University campus. The Northwest Bookfest is a Bothell non-profit that supports local authors with their authoring, publishing & marketing of their own books. Do Tell.

If you’re a serious writer pursuing a publishing career, or a published author—you might have noticed that the world of publishing as we know it has undergone some serious changes. The advent of the digital reader — i.e. Kindle, Nook, Tablets & Cell Phones — has changed the way people read books. The refrain, “no one will ever read books on a computer” has changed to “how do we get our books to readers who read on devices?” In addition to being able to rub shoulders & network with New York Times Best Selling  Authors, you will be able to attend your choice of 60 high-impact workshops, connect with over 40 exhibitors & attend 15 public panels with some of the local publishing, marketing, and writing influencers.

After the Saturday sessions, enjoy some extra-curricular activities with the NWBookfest Wine and Words events hosted at Park Place Books and  Milagro Restaurant! Come join the fun!

Tickets for the all weekend education & networking event are only $99! There limited number of seats still available, so get your tickets ASAP at If you happen to be a Pacific Northwest Writers Association member, you get a $20 discount on the event!

MC Town Center Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall

forumPicwebOur very own, Mill Creek Town Center will be featured in a television segment filmed locally, as the Official Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall in Washington for 2013.

The feature will be shown on FOX Seattle & on The Discovery Channel nationally in October 2013 & placed on the national travel site

Look for the segment on:

Wednesday, October 2 at 5:00 am E/P on The Discovery Channel

Saturday, October 5 at 2:00 pm on KCPQ FOX channel 13 in Seattle

Mill Creek Town Center is an amazing lifestyle center located in the scenic city of Mill Creek, Washington. Nestled among nature trails & creeks, the outdoor mall has a park-like setting. With over 80 retail stores, boutiques, restaurants & services, you’ll always find friendly service & something unique. Open 7 days a week, the Mill Creek Town Center is located 1/2 mile north of SW 164th Street on Bothell-Everett Hwy in Mill Creek WA. Do Tell.

The Official Best Of originated in January 2007 as a travel TV show & website covering only a few states. Today Official Best Of covers 28 states with the remaining states plus other countries being covered in 2013.

One distinction that sets Official Best Of apart from many other travel sites is that it doesn’t accept advertising on either its television programs or its website. The selection of attractions is by merit, and lesser-known but worthy attractions are given the same attention as famous ones. As with each TV show production, the website offers a great resource for those planning a vacation, day trip or outing for residents within Washington as well as folks all across the country.
