City Hall Advisory Committee applicants needed....
MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — The Mountlake Terrace City Council seeks interested residents to serve on a City Hall Advisory Committee and assist in the development of a new City Hall plan to put before voters in 2017.
Since 2009, the city has been leasing an Interim City Hall at the Redstone Corporate Building II on 220th Street at a cost of over $400,000 per year. The city would like to thank voters for approving a levy in August to fund Interim City Hall rent for the next four years while we work with the community to plan, design, fund, and construct a new City Hall on the vacant city-owned property at 232nd Street SW and 58th Avenue W (Civic Center). This site is currently being used as a staging area for city construction projects.
The City Council intends to interview and select a 9-member advisory committee that would meet in the evening, about three times per month beginning in January for the first half of 2017 and less often the remainder of the year with some weekend meetings possible. The initial goal is to work with architects on a City Hall plan and make a recommendation to the City Council as it relates to size and cost of this facility. The city also plans to have extensive community outreach and neighborhood meetings to receive city-wide input and answer any questions about this important project as part of the committee’s work.
Applicants must be current residents of Mountlake Terrace, at least 18 years of age, and able to attend evening and some weekend meetings in 2017.
Individuals interested in serving on this committee should submit an application by 5:00 p.m. on November 14 to the City of Mountlake Terrace, 6100 219th Street SW #200, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City Council will interview applicants in late November or early December and appoint the committee in December. To receive an application, you may complete the online form, typeable PDF form, visit City Hall at 6100 219th Street SW #200, or contact City Clerk/Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen at email@example.com or (425) 744-6206 to have one emailed to you or made available for pick up.
