Boards and Commission Group Photo

The City of Mountlake Terrace held an appreciation dinner on January 29 at Ballinger Clubhouse in honor of its volunteer board members, commissioners and task force members. Approximately 50 guests attended the dinner that was prepared and served by city staff. The program featured highlights from the past year including adoption of the Town Center Plan, new development regulations, statewide award for the Bicentennial Park volunteer efforts, Ballinger Park improvements and much more.

The city recognized seven boards, commissions and taskforces that advise the City Council on a variety of issues, as well as spearheaded community events. These groups include the Planning Commission, Recreation and Parks Advisory Commission, Arts Advisory Commission, Neighborhood Park Improvement Subcommittee, Civil Service Commission, City Council Salary Commission and the Economic Vitality and Town Center Taskforce.  Volunteer hours in the city equate to nearly one additional full-time employee.

Many of the volunteers honored at the event have served for 15 years or more and numerous residents volunteer at community events and on service organizations as well. “We are so fortunate to have such a dedicated and caring group of volunteers,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “These men and women are the heart and soul of our community giving hours and hours of their time to make Mountlake Terrace a terrific place to live and to work.”

For more information on boards and commissions, visit the city’s website for more details and an application at, or contact Virginia Olsen, City Clerk/Community Relations Director at (425) 744-6206 or
