Nearly 60 people attended an open house on the Draft Town Center Plan on Tuesday evening, December 4 at the Mountlake Terrace Library.
City staff shared a brief presentation and attendees viewed displays and discussed their thoughts about the plan. “Gathering places, restaurants and entertainment topped the list of things people want to see in their vision of a new Town Center,” said Community and Economic Development Director Christy Osborn.
“The city’s volunteer Economic Vitality and Town Center Task Force has been meeting since April as part of the process to update the city’s Town Center Plan. The Task Force is reviewing a draft Town Center Subarea Plan and this open house was an opportunity for the public to review the draft plan and provide comments,” said Assistant City Manager Stephen Clifton.
The Task Force will meet Wednesday, December 12 to further discuss the draft plan and review comments from the open house prior to forwarding the plan to the Planning Commission and City Council.
On Monday, December 17, the City Council will hold a special joint meeting with the Task Force and Planning Commission at the Mountlake Terrace Library beginning at 6:00 p.m. to discuss recommended updates.
Beginning in January of 2019, the Planning Commission will begin holding work/study sessions followed by public hearings for additional input from the community. The Planning Commission will forward a recommendation on the Plan for review and planned adoption by the City Council.
