Mountlake Terrace looking for residents to serve on Civic Facilities Task Force


City-of-MLT-logoThe Mountlake Terrace City Council is seeking interested citizens to serve on a Civic Facilities Task Force to address the city’s need to replace its aging facilities.

The focus will be on a combined City Hall/Police Station and the Recreation Pavilion as well as financing options.

The Recreation Pavilion opened in 1968 and is approaching 50 years old and the City has been leasing an Interim City Hall since 2009 after the former City Hall’s ceiling collapsed in 2008. That facility was deemed unsafe and demolished in 2010. The City currently owns vacant property at the Civic Center and would like to return City services to that location.

The City Council intends to interview and select a 7-member advisory body that would meet every other Wednesday evening at Interim City Hall.

Individuals interested in serving in this capacity should submit an application by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 9 to City of Mountlake Terrace, 6100 219th Street SW #200, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 or via email at

The City Council will discuss the qualifications of the candidates at its Sept. 16 work/study session. Interviews will be conducted by a subcommittee of the Council during the following week. Formal appointment of the task force is tentatively scheduled on Oct. 5. To receive an application, you may email, visit City Hall at the address above or call 425-776-1161 and it will be mailed or left at City Hall.

For more information, please contact City Manager Arlene Fisher at or 425-744-6205.
