[ARCHIVED] City Awarded $235,870 for Evergreen Playfield Project

At their next regular meeting, the Mountlake Terrace City Council will consider an Amendment for Recreation Conservation Office (RCO) funding of Evergreen Playfield #1, installation of synthetic turf and LED lighting. RCO has awarded $235,870 toward the project that is now under construction.

The project was ranked #20 out of 91 total applications in 2019 with only the top 19 projects receiving funding through the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP-Local Parks). The Evergreen Playfield #1 application was the first alternate and since the top 19 projects did not use all the allocated funds for their projects, the remaining funds became available for Mountlake Terrace. 

The Evergreen Playfield project is on schedule and should be completed by late May. The project costs approximately $2.1 million and is funded with grants from the Verdant Health Commission, RCO Youth Athletic Facilities (YAF) Fund, Snohomish County, and Terrace Brier Soccer Club. Remaining project costs will utilize this additional RCO funding after originally being budgeted with city park impact fees. The park impact fees are now available for use on future projects.

A virtual ribbon cutting for the project is being planned for Wednesday, June 23 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Save the date and stay tuned for more information about the event. For more information, please contact Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz at or (425) 640-3101.
