Bainbridge Island Land Trust sues landowner over new driveway

Head over HERE to read my story about the Bainbridge Island Land Trust‘s legal battle with a North Madison Avenue landowner.

BILT contends that Joseph Lachac broke a conservation easement agreement by clearing plants and at least one tree to make way for a rerouted section of his driveway. Lachac says he has the right to improve his driveway, and stresses that he has replanted the abandoned section with native plants.

Bainbridge seeking stimulus money for Winslow portion of Madison Ave

The city of Bainbridge Island is hoping for $585,000 in federal stimulus money to repave the portion of Madison Avenue between Winslow Way and Wyatt Way.

The city also wants $90,000 to repave part of Manitou Beach Road.

Last year, the city only used $60,000 of the $150,000 it was awarded for pedestrian and bicycle improvements near Blakely School.
