North County Fire and EMS Chief John Cermak stated, "North County and Arlington Fire continue to explore partnerships and innovative solutions to improve efficiency and service delivery. These new positions shared between our agencies are just one way that our partnership has enhanced the services we provide."

The new space will be much larger than what was previously available. In addition to providing spaces for students with the Arlington Public Schools to learn about horticulture, soils, botany, and other science and agricultural related topics, the garden will have beds available for the Arlington Community Food Bank to have fresh produce through the growing season.

Tell Us About Your Well-Being, Enter to Win a Bistro San Martin Gift Card
 

Do you feel connected to the Stillaguamish Valley community? Do you have access to the prevention resources you need? Are you getting appropriate health screenings? The City of Arlington along with some key community healthcare partners want to lead the way in understanding and improving well-being in the Stillaguamish Valley. We're inviting the whole community to participate in creating a well-being "northstar" for the region by taking a confidential online survey located at www.bit.ly/stillysurvey19.

 
Your participation will help us better understand the needs and desires of the people who live in the Stillaguamish Valley (zip codes 98241 and 98223), so community partners can respond accordingly. The project is funded and organized by Stilly Valley Health Connections and the Cascade Valley Health Foundation in collaboration with The Providence Institute for a Healthier Community.
 
You can take the confidential survey online by visiting www.bit.ly/stillysurvey19. You'll need 10-15 minutes to get through the questions, and it will be open through April 15th. The goal is to gather at least 500 community responses, but hopefully more. Participants who enter their email address and demographic information will be entered to win a $100 gift card to our beloved Bistro San Martin restaurant in downtown Arlington! Please note that your information will not be made public.
