The City of Mountlake Terrace is updating its Transportation Master Plan (TMP). Residents are encouraged to take an online survey to provide feedback on the city’s transportation and traffic conditions. Visit www.cityofmlt.com/1977 to take the survey. The deadline to complete the survey is March 20, 2020.
The primary purpose of this effort is to update the original plan to more accurately address the changing conditions Mountlake Terrace will experience with the introduction of light rail to the city, development of the Town Center, and overall growth the community will experience in upcoming years.
The current Mountlake Terrace Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was approved in November 2007. The update is necessary to reflect Mountlake Terrace’s current needs and vision for its transportation system to accommodate future demand for improved, safe and efficient travel throughout the city. The TMP update will also meet requirements under the Washington State Growth Management Act Chapter 36.70A.RCW and be consistent with the Puget Sound Regional Council Transportation 2040 plan.
The TMP update will focus on defining transportation deficiencies and identify potential improvements that address transportation safety, connectivity, operation, and capacity needs to improve the transportation system throughout the city. The TMP update will also address ongoing programs for preserving and maintaining the existing transportation infrastructure.
In addition to the survey, Mountlake Terrace will also host open houses where interested community members can interact with each other and staff to provide invaluable input on many of the focus areas identified above. The update is tentatively planned for discussion at Planning Commission meetings in March, April and May, and at City Council in June and July and adopted in August.
