Langley First Street loss, beauty award

Langley will hold a public hearing on possibly vacating a narrow strip of First Street and Anthes Avenue to the owners of the Dog House Tavern on Monday.

At the city council meeting at 5:30 p.m., Langley will also recognize Paul and Mickey Sarkis, owners of the Langley Pizzeria, for their work in making the city more visually appealing. The city will give them a beautification award.

The public hearing is scheduled as the ninth item on the city council's agenda, after general citizen comments. The hearing will cover a request by Charlie and Janice Kleiner, who need the property to work out some structural problems with the historic building, which has a sag or jog in its floors. The deck was technically built on city property, and Langley Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango said the owners were concerned they could lose its historic status if the deck had to be removed.

Arango said most people would not notice the loss of property, and that the public may gain a patio or restroom near Seawall Park.

Langley City Council will also review an agreement for services with the Langley Main Street Association, a growth management act grant application, the Island County waste management waste risk plan and water rates for community gardens at the April 7 meeting.
