Cedar Mill News Subject Index

Over the two-and-a-half years that the Cedar Mill News has been published, we’ve covered a lot of topics, from history to business to nature – all focused on our little community. To help you catch up on topics of interest, we just completed a Subject Index on the Cedar Mill website: cedarmill.com/news/subject-index.htm

Each link leads to the full story on the website, complete with all graphics and often showing larger photographs than in the printed version.

Topics include: History in the News, The Nature of Cedar Mill, Town Center, Annexation, Development and much more. So if you’ve missed an issue or two, visit the site and read up on Cedar Mill.


Annexation Bills move through legislature

There are about a half-dozen annexation-related bills in this session. The two that appear to have momentum, with at least one having a chance of being enacted, are HB 2484 and SB 887. HB 2484, (introduced by Cedar Mill State Representative Mitch Greenlick, Cedar Hills Rep. Brad Avakian and others) passed the full House last week with a 45 - 13 approval.
