Golden Teddy AwardCentennial Trail, County Parks trails & campgrounds get high marks from ParentMap magazine readers   

Every year ParentMap asks parents to share their invaluable, word-of-mouth tips about kids' activities. The responses provide a road map for keeping kids entertained and exploring throughout the year.
The County's Centennial Trail was a 2013 finalist for the Golden Teddy Awards for Family Activities: Kid-friendly Bike Trail. More than 500,000 visitors walk, ride, roll and run on the 30 mile Centennial Trail each year and ParentMap readers gave the trail rave reviews. 
Snohomish County's Surface Water Management Division needs your input

Snohomish County's Surface Water Management Division needs your input as it gathers comments and ideas to fine tune its programs and services for the future. The process could potentially lead to a countywide restructuring of Surface Water Management rates.   


Surface Water Management provides a variety of services to its customers and is currently evaluating whether these services should be changed and how the division can do more to solve specific problems that property owners are experiencing. The information it gathers via the survey will help align existing and future programs and services with residents' needs.
To gather information, Surface Water Management invites you to participate in an online survey. We have about 400 responses so far and need 1,000. The survey will only take a few minutes of your time but it could be the difference in providing the most direct help to Snohomish County residents in coming years.
