Among the items on the Woodway Town Council agenda for Monday, Aug. 21 is a discussion regarding a draft interlocal agreement with the City of Shoreline, Snohomish County and the Olympic View Water and Sewer District to annex Point Wells.

Point Wells, located at the northern end of Richmond Beach Drive, is home to a contaminated marine fuel and asphalt oil storage and distribution facility. (Read more about its history here.)

Pursuant to a 2019 settlement and interlocal agreement between the City of Shoreline and the Town of Woodway, Woodway has the first opportunity to annex Point Wells. As an initial annexation hurdle, the town must successfully negotiate an annexation interlocal agreement with the City of Shoreline, the county, and Olympic View Water and Sewer District.

If that occurs, then the Woodway Town Council would need to vote in favor of annexation.

Other items on the town council agenda include:


  • Twin Maples speed humps discussion
  • Contract for road-striping services
  • Fire service update from Fire Chief Matt Cowan
  • Police service update from Police Chief Jason Valentine

The council meeting will take place at Town Hall (23920 113th Pl. W., Woodway). You can also watch the meeting via Microsoft Teams. Click here to access the Teams meeting. To call into the meeting, dial +1 323-795-5201. If you’re asked to enter a meeting ID, it is: 322 909 253#.

  1. I would say the best thing to do is to demo and let nature take over because who would want to buy a home or condo on a environmental waste site. But if we need housing and the rich don’t care about environmental conditions only views, I’d say sell it to them.

    1. This would be a great location for a beautiful park. There will be several years of clean up, but well worth the effort.

      Turn it into a park for the people. Walking trails, low level lighting, native plants and open areas for people to enjoy our amazing gift called PNW.
