State legislators from the 1st and 32nd Districts are expected to be attendance at a special meeting of the Mountlake Terrace City Council on Thursday, Sept. 12 when the council announces a proclamation recognizing the legislators for their efforts to secure funds for the city’s Main Street Revitalization Project. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the council chambers of Interim City Hall, 6100-219th St. S.W., #220.
A $2 million appropriation from the state’s capital budget was approved by the Washington State Legislature earlier this year for Mountlake Terrace’s Main Street project. City officials report they have now obtained more than $8 million of the project’s $12 million total price tag. Design of aspects of the plan are now underway, with construction slated to begin in late 2014.
The Main Street Revitalization Project includes new pavement, undergrounding of power lines, upgrades to utility and storm water systems, widening of sidewalks, installation of trees, and construction of bike lanes, pedestrian amenities, energy-efficient lighting and below-ground hydronic piping along sections of 56th Avenue West and 236th Street Southwest.
