Coming to Clark County, WA...

Each month, neighborhood association leadership gather to learn more about what's going on in our community, learn about different topics and hear from guest speakers.  Tonight, neighborhood leaders learned more about what's coming soon to Clark County, WA.

What you see before you is a part of the materials neighborhood association leaders will distribute among their neighborhoods.  So what exactly is this?

I folded up and walked away with this picture and a full heart.  Clark County (in my opinion) has always been an animal-friendly community and what you see before you proves just that.  It's a K-9 Memorial with a statue dedicated to each law enforcement dog killed in the line of duty, five to date.

Dogpaw has fully committed to this project and expects to help raise the estimated over $2 million funding to make it a reality.  They will oversee the maintenance and upkeep after it's dedication, likely will partnership(s).  There will be no cost to the taxpayers for this project.

No other Memorial like it exists in Clark County and the project has grown to include recognition for our local law enforcement K-9s plus all K-9s killed in the line of duty throughout the entire State of Washington.  A similar Memorial exists back East, however, we're told there is nothing in between.  This will be a great addition to the Heritage Farm here in Vancouver, WA.

To The City of Vancouver,

Although we are a neighborhood not in the city's limits, we've worked with the City of Vancouver for many years and also have an interest in the corridor as it is the southern boundary of our Association.

In email to the City of Vancouver, we stated our concerns with this intersection. "Although there is no left turns from Fourth Plain Blvd westbound at NE 143rd AVE, the one sign in place (at the the street median) has faded throughout the years and doesn't have enough visual and reflective quality to be effective."  As a remedy for this issue, we asked "to get that sign replaced, perhaps with a larger size and/or adding an additional no left turn sign to the overhead signal as well".  ~Christie BrownSilva, President



On behalf the Sifton Neighborhood Association, we'd like to extend a big Thank You to Mayor Leavitt, Vancouver City Council and Staff!
