Nov. 13: Mountlake Terrace sponsoring Vision 2044 Open House

A construction crew works on the light rail station in Mountlake Terrace, scheduled to open in 2024. Transportation is one element of the city’s Comprehensive Plan update.

The City of Mountlake Terrace will be hosting a Vision 2044 Open House from 5-6:45 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, at City Hall. This is for the city’s comprehensive planning process that will guide decisions around public policy and growth over the next 20 years.

This will be a family-friendly event with child care, food and refreshments provided, according to a news release.

The open house will feature activity stations for each element in the Comprehensive Plan, with key questions that community members can help answer. Topics include housing, land use, environment, economic development, transportation, parks and equity. A mapping activity will identify needs, desires and areas of concern in each of the six subarea neighborhoods.

The meeting is the first step toward addressing requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act to evaluate growth alternatives and their respective environmental impacts. These will be explored further in the Comprehensive Plan’s Environmental Impact Statement next year.
