Redmond Mayor George Endicott said in his state of the city address Wednesday that the city is seeing slow and steady progress. 


"In terms of budget, we've stabilized, I think the bleeding has stopped. We lost, over the last 5 years, about 13% of our property tax revenue, but that looks like it's flat now.  We doubled our residential building permits from 11 to 12, so that's a good sign. We have some commercial construction going on. You know, we're seeing the glimmers of a recovery."


Endicott says they are focusing on two major themes: that they are open for business and are family friendly.


And he says they are working to prove that by rezoning some land to encourage new businesses to move to Redmond and bring family wage jobs.


He adds that their downtown road construction project is well ahead of schedule and it's looking very good.
