Project updates

The Washington State Dept. of Health (DOH) has received a four-year grant award announced in September 2015 by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative. The American Academy of Pediatrics Washington Chapter partnered with DOH for the project, which will enroll 5,600 clinicians serving 210,000 children. Cedar River Group served as grant writer.

Cedar River Group was the facilitator for the Collaborative Design Process that helped Sound Transit and the City of Bellevue reach agreement on the East Link light rail project’s Bellevue segment. Under the agreement, Sound Transit will minimize construction and operations impacts to neighborhoods, and promote Bellevue’s Bel-Red Corridor land use vision for transit-oriented development; the city will make a financial contribution to constructing a downtown tunnel. The Bellevue City Council and Sound Transit Board approved the agreement in April 2015.
