Early election results Tuesday night have the Mountlake Terrace Civic Campus measure failing 54% to 46%. Since the measure needs a 60% vote to pass, it would take a lot for the measure to catch up at this point. While many who voted yes saw the measure as an investment in the community, opponents argued that the cost of the project and additional property taxes were too much to ask for in the current economy.
The measure would provide a new civic campus on the old civic center site with a new community/senior center, public meeting places, new police station, emergency operations center, city offices, library facility upgrades and new streetscapes.
Election results will be updated again on Wednesday, November 3 at 7 pm.
