[ARCHIVED] Economic Vitality and Town Center Task Force Workshop

The purpose of this planning effort is to identify and develop recommended updates to the City’s Economic Vitality Strategy, development codes and Town Center Subarea Plan to support and encourage the types of development desired by the community with a specific focus on the Town Center Subarea. The goal of the May 15 workshop was to obtain input from the community to help SCJ Alliance prepare recommendations on, and City Council appointed Town Center Task Force assist with the development of, potential updates to these strategies, codes and plan.

Comprehensive Plans and their related elements are designed to be reviewed on a periodic basis by the community to assess the goals and visions contained within the plans and make adjustments to reflect changes for the future. The Town Center Subarea Plan was adopted over ten years ago and the city and region have experienced many changes over the last several years….including the approval to extend Sound Transit’s light rail line northward into Snohomish County; a Mountlake Terrace Rail Station, located at 236th and Interstate 5, is scheduled to be operational in 2024.

Over the next several months, SCJ Alliance and the Task Force will conduct three more meetings, an open house and submit recommendations to the Planning Commission and City Council for their consideration before the end of 2018. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion about the future of the community and the Town Center area. The next Economic Vitality Strategy and Town Center Task Force meeting will be held on May 30, 2018 in the Council Chambers of Mountlake Terrace City Hall (6100 – 219th Street SW, Suite 220); all meetings are open to the public. For more information about the Economic Vitality and Town Center planning process, please visit the city’s website at www.cityofmlt.com/1936 or contact Community and Economic Development at (425)744-6207.
