February 2013 - Working With Housing Hope

February 8, 2013 - Fred Safstrom speaks at the “key ceremony” for new homeowners who have completed construction of their own homes through the Team Homebuilding program of Housing Hope. The site was the Plat of Marvin Gardens in Monroe, a residential development Harmsen & Associates, Inc. completed previously for a private party but which was subsequently purchased by Housing Hope.

Currently, Harmsen is working on three Housing Hope projects in Monroe. Woods Creek Village, a small multi-family project, is nearing completion; Main Street Homes, another Team Homebuilding project, is close to permit submittal; and Monroe Family Village, a large multi-family project, is just beginning design.

It is always a pleasure to work with Housing Hope, who recently celebrated 25 years of service in Snohomish County and 20 years of Team Home Building.

December 2011 - “Harmsen Gives Back to the Community and Environment”

Several years ago Harmsen and Associates, Inc. had the opportunity to be a part of an ambitious project with the Adopt A Stream Foundation and their Trout Stream Exhibit.  The project included the massive restoration of a 20 acre site in McCollum Park in Snohomish County. 

In the 1970’s this 20 acre site consisted of two salmon streams, wetland systems and an old second growth forest, but was filled and made into a parking lot.  The restoration of the site began in 1993 with the removal of hundreds of dump truck loads of fill dirt and rocks. 

Today, the project is 95% complete and consists of a visitors’ building, wetland ponds, a trout stream exhibit, and interpretive trails.  On October 29th Harmsen was honored at an open house event held for the 47 contributors providing over $1,500,000 worth of donated equipment, materials and labor - Harmsen donated 17 total hours of surveying services for the project. 

The Adopt A Stream Foundation hopes to raise additional funds to complete an elevated nature walkway and a forest canopy viewing tower.  Once these are installed, the exhibit will be open to the public. The goal of the exhibit is to educate the public on ways to work together on protecting our streams and wetlands.  For more information about Adopt A Stream or the Trout Exhibit you can contact Tom Murdock at 425-316-8592.
