City officials have scheduled more presentations of “Civic Center 101,” a discussion of the tentative plans for new and expanded city facilities for Mountlake Terrace. The next presentation is Tuesday, May 29, noon-1 p.m. at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300-58th Ave. W.
The proposed project would include new City Hall offices and community/senior activities center, expansion of the current police station, and upgrades to the roof of the library, all at the civic campus on the southwest corner of 228th Street Southwest and 58th Avenue West.
Funding for the $25-million project will require 60-percent voter approval of Proposition No. 1, a 30-year capital bond measure appearing on the Aug. 7 primary election ballot. If passed, the average Mountlake Terrace homeowner would see their property taxes go up $7.42 per month for one year, followed by an increase of $11.59 per month for the remainder of the 30-year bond.
“Civic Center 101” covers information about the history of Mountlake Terrace civic facilities, what would be included in this latest proposal, and why city officials are coming forward with the plan. Also included is a photo tour of the current police station and reasons for its proposed expansion.
“Civic Center 101” is also scheduled for four presentations in June:
Wednesday, June 20, noon, at Merrill Gardens, 23303-58th Ave. W. (for the Mountlake Terrace Business Associations)
Saturday, June 23, 10 a.m., at the Recreation Pavilion, 5303-228th St. S.W.
Tuesday, June 26, 6:30 p.m., at the Police Station (for the Community Policing Advisory Board)
Saturday, June 30, 10 a.m., at the Recreation Pavilion
