At its February 6 meeting, the Mountlake Terrace City Council recognized Snohomish County Council Member Terry Ryan for his assistance in obtaining $100,000 of funding for Ballinger Park. The funds, which are provided in the 2017 Snohomish County Capital Improvement Program budget, can be applied toward dock, pedestrian and infrastructure improvements at Lake Ballinger.  

Council Member Ryan said, “I enjoy coming to Mountlake Terrace. The sense of community here is wonderful.” He added that other Snohomish County partnerships with Mountlake Terrace include: a Conservation Futures Grant for $270,000 for expansion of Terrace Creek Park, a grant for the city and Girl Scouts to build a trail in Bicentennial Park, a grant for the Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show, and a letter of recommendation to Community Transit to get a van for the Senior Center. Council Member Ryan also helped get a couple of soccer goals for Ballinger Playfield. He added, “They won’t recognize how the goals got there, but it brings a lot of joy to the kids.”

“This check for $100,000 will help implement the Ballinger Park Master Plan that we adopted in late 2015,” said Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “It will get the ball rolling.”
