    New four-hour parking signs have been installed near Veterans Memorial Park, located at 23400 58th Ave. W.

    Parking is limited to four hours between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m., seven days a week.

    According to a post on, “The signs were in response to a park user’s request that the parking be available for park users during the day. Upon further investigation by city staff, it ends up that this area was designated as four-hour parking back in 1995, though apparently signs were never installed. Limiting parking on city streets requires an ordinance by the city council.”

    The section of 58th Avenue West near the park is often used by commuters after parking at the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center fills up.


    1. What park users during the day? How many? What are commuters (many of them people who live and pay taxes in MLT) supposed to do? There isn’t enough parking at the park and ride, so what’s the alternative? Park on the street along side a park that has little to no attendance during a weekday, or drive to work? If this community is serious about getting people out of their cars and into public transit there needs to be adequate parking for those cars.

      • If we really want to grow up as a county, all of us have to stop thinking of driving ourselves, especially at commute hours, in our private cars. Yes, some people need to drive. But most don’t.

        Can the city open pay lots for commuters?

    2. The city of Mountlake Terrace does not know how to create revenue. They should of installed paid parking meters to create much needed revenue instead of wasting unnecessary funds.
