Parking has finally returned to Second Street between Anthes and Cascade avenues.

After months of construction on the roadway that serves the majority of business in Langley, sections from the post office to Cascade Avenue and from Sweet Mona’s to Anthes Avenue are open to vehicles.

Access remained limited, however, as work crews finished the plaza sidewalk. Painting and striping is planned for next week. Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango said the road should open by the end of next week.

The city will have a grand opening of the redone street Wednesday, July 9, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Arango said he needed about a month to prepare to get the word out while he was busy wrapping up the project.

“It gives us time to make sure everything is in place,” he said.

This weekend, the Langley Main Street Association will install several plants along the road.

Teacher, volunteer awards doled out

South Whidbey’s parent-teacher associations honored several teachers and volunteers with Golden Apple and Acorn awards at a ceremony recently.

This year, they went to Debra Davies-Vogel, Tonya Henny, Jess Monett, Erin Simms, Kim Williams and Jamie Poteat for exceptional help in the schools.
