REDMOND After $90 million, a decade of planning and over a year’s worth of construction, a reroute of Highway 97 around downtown Redmond finally is complete. But now, with the city’s main streets carrying a fraction of what was once 30,000 cars and trucks a day, the real planning begins. “Now we can start bringing life back to downtown,” says Bud Prince, manager of Redmond Economic Development. In the coming months the city is considering making majors changes to the municipal codes. Options include requiring businesses to revamp signage and storefronts; allowing the construction of 80- or 100-foot buildings also is a possibility.

The two of us, mother and child, were participating in a new teen rite of passage: Instead of handing over the car keys, I handed over a car-sharing card — with the caveat that she not use the gift as her own personal car service.
