The Mountlake Terrace City Council recognized its entire legislative delegation with a Proclamation at its July 18 meeting commending them for their committed support to revitalize the community.

The 1st and 32nd legislative district legislators, including Senator Rosemary McAuliffe, Senator Maralyn Chase, Representative Derek Stanford, Representative Luis Moscoso, Representative Cindy Ryu and Representative Ruth Kagi represent the City of Mountlake Terrace.

These legislators actively supported the City of Mountlake Terrace’s legislative priorities, including sharing the City Council’s vision of a community built around transit-oriented development and a vibrant downtown main street.

They advocated for and secured over $3 million in capital budget funding that will complete Phase I of the Main Street Revitalization Project to spark the city’s Town Center revitalization, which is anticipated to generate 1,400 jobs and over 800 housing units.

The Main Street Revitalization Project will design street, pedestrian and bicycle enhancements along with improvements to utilities, street lighting and signals, stormwater systems, and undergrounding of overhead powerlines in the downtown.

The project will be built in two phases. Phase 1 is the 236th Corridor from the Transit Center at I-5 to 56th Avenue West. Funding has been secured to begin construction in 2017. Phase 2, (56th Avenue West between 230th and 236th Streets SW) will be built once all the funding is secured.

“Our citizens can be proud of the efforts of the 1st and 32nd Legislative District legislators as well as the Mountlake Terrace City Council,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “They are working hard in partnership to upgrade our infrastructure, create jobs, and generate more housing opportunities.”
