Liz's Creative Cafe

The little coffee shop located in the heart of Ardenwald is closing at the end of the month.

Liz’s Creative Cafe announced on their Tumblr post that July 31, 2016, will be their last day open.

Liz’s Creative Cafe’s model was a place for patrons to grab a delicious meal or snack and a great beverage and then work on some art. It is located on the corner of SE 32nd Ave. and SE Olsen St.

Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Associations held their monthly regular neighborhood meetings at Liz’s Creative Cafe. The Neighborhood Association is on a summer break and will resume regular meetings on September 26, 2016. A new meeting location has not been decided yet.

The Neighborhood Association is saddened from the news, but expresses well wishes and thank you to Liz’s Creative Cafe for being a great host for our neighborhood meetings and a vibrant place for our community.

Single car crash knocks out signal

Johnson Creek 32nd Ave Crash

A single car crash Wednesday morning has deactivated the traffic signal at SE Johnson Creek Blvd. and SE 32nd Ave. The vehicle apparently knocked out the signal control box on the west side of SE 32nd Ave. Police, fire, and  medical were at the scene.

The cause of the crash is not known.

Drivers should be aware that the intersection should be treated as a three-way stop, and yield for pedestrians in the marked crosswalk.

Update June 30, 2016: The signal has been repaired and is operational again.
