The City of Mountlake Terrace will host a community meeting on Tuesday, January 15 to present the conceptual design of the Gateway Plaza and gather additional public input.
The meeting will be held at the Mountlake Terrace Senior Center at 23000 Lakeview Drive at 7:00 p.m.
The Gateway Plaza is adjacent to Sound Transit’s Mountlake Terrace Light Rail Station on the corner of 236th and the new street just east of the I-5 off ramp, currently referred to as Gateway Boulevard. The city has contracted with Otak to design the Gateway Plaza. This plaza will serve as a “gateway” to Snohomish County (as Mountlake Terrace is the first stop in Snohomish County for light rail) as well as the gateway to Mountlake Terrace for people exiting light rail at the station.
This approximately 2,000 square foot area serves as a welcoming area for passengers to take a moment to wait for their train or a ride home. Otak presented three conceptual designs for participants to assess on December 11. Feedback from the community was gathered on what would make this site distinctly “Mountlake Terrace.” The latest design combines these elements and will be unveiled at the January 15 open house.
For more information about the open house please contact Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz at (425) 640-3101.
