New Tree to Adorn Town Center Plaza

A wireless carrier project at Jack Long Park will result in the city cancelling the lighting of the tree atop the water tower this year. Although the city had planned to light the tree, recent project updates have changed the city’s direction.


Instead, the city will be installing a 20-foot tree in the Jerry Smith Town Center Plaza, 23204 58th Avenue W, in early December. The purchase of this tree was made possible by a number of local sponsors who came together to fund a new tree last year to add cheer during the pandemic. However, the plaza construction was not yet completed and there was no power available for the new tree at the time.


The “Tree Lighting Ceremony” as we have known it for many years may be updated in future years to take advantage of the new Civic Campus venue and the fact that food and drinks are not allowed at the new turf field at Evergreen Playfield. 


The City of Mountlake Terrace sincerely thanks the following partners for funding the new tree to light up our plaza in December: AFCO & Sons (Yuko Abe), David Blau/B Squared Construction, Chicago Title, Steve Cox, First Security Bank, Grand Pere Bakery, Wade Heyer, Steve Hubner, Lake Cushman Company, Landsverk Quality Homes, Mustach & Jackson, Mountlake Terrace Plaza, Sound Structural Solutions and Summit Homes.


Watch for photos of the new tree in early December on the city’s social media: City of Mountlake Terrace Government on Facebook and CityofMLT on Instagram and Twitter.
