Introduction Redmond Neighborhood Blog, aka "Redmond Blog" covers the news and opinion of Greater Redmond, WA. neighborhoods, schools, organizations and local governments. Redmond's local governments are: The City of Redmond, Lake Washington School District and EvergreenHealth public hospital. I'm a 40 year resident and have written the blog for over 11 years.
