Neighborhood Names Sought


Ideas for re-naming two neighborhood districts (now called East Terrace and North Terrace) in Mountlake Terrace are being sought. The effort follows up on a Planning Commission suggestion to consider more unique or place-based names for these two neighborhoods.

The city’s other neighborhood districts Gateway, Town Center, Melody Hill Village, and Lake Ballinger already have unique names.

To get input, the City is asking for people to fill out an informal survey or send in their ideas. The survey is online here. For a copy of the questionnaire, or to otherwise send in ideas, anyone may email [email protected] or call (425) 744-6266.

The survey lists some name options that reflect earlier ideas from the community. These include Cedar Way and Lyon Creek NeighborhoodŁ for the neighborhood now known as East Terrace and Meadow Heights and WoodlarkŁ for the neighborhood now known as North Terrace.

The Planning Commission will consider the naming ideas and make a recommendation later this year. A final decision on any name changes is up to the City Council in December. Meanwhile, neighborhood input is encouraged.
