After two meetings with the Olympic View Water and Sewer District, officials with the Edmonds School District say additional progress has been made toward a resolution between the two entities.

“We are optimistic that an agreement can be reached in a timely manner,” district officials said in a statement.

An update is anticipated early next week.

A disagreement between the two entities about stormwater retention may mean that the new $49.25 million Madrona K-8 building will not be able to open in time for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The Edmonds School District has a plan in place to move the school’s 650 students to the old Alderwood Middle School building in the fall if an agreement is not reached.
