[ARCHIVED] Gateway Plaza Open House Gets Input on Furnishings and Materials

Gateway Plaza Open House January 15 - People Looking at Drawings

Three conceptual design options for the Gateway Plaza were presented by OTAK at the first open house in December. “This meeting focused on selection of styles, materials and options for furnishings including bench styles, sign options, and hardscape landscape materials, such as pavers or cast-in place concrete,” said Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz. All have their pros and cons. If anyone from the community would like to give input on the three decision points or find more information, please visit This input form will be active for about one week or until January 22, 2019.

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. This 2,000 square foot space serves as a welcoming area for passengers waiting for their train or a ride home. Community feedback was gathered at the December 11 meeting on what would make this site distinctly Mountlake Terrace. 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.

For more information about the open house please visit or contact Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz at (425) 640-3101.
