[ARCHIVED] City Updates in Response to COVID-19 Containment: Park Closures & Permit Applications by Appointment

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Snohomish Health District on March 17 ordered the closure of “public venues in which people congregate for entertainment, social or recreation purposes.”  With this in mind, the city will be posting the closure of public playgrounds, park restrooms, gazebos, athletic fields, sports courts and the dog park in Mountlake Terrace today. 

The city’s Recreation Pavilion had previously reduced hours and programs.

In an additional effort to observe social distancing and flatten the curve of the COVID-19 spread, the city will be suspending the intake of passport applications and requiring appointments for certain development permit processes. 

The following permits will be accepted at the permit counter without an appointment:

  • Driveway
  • Fence
  • Home occupations
  • Re-roof
  • Shed

Unless you are applying for one of the permits listed, please call (425) 744-6267 to make an appointment.

Permits for single family residential re-roof, plumbing and mechanical can still be submitted and viewed online.

The City of Mountlake Terrace has a webpage to keep the community informed of updates related to the COVID-19 virus. Visit that is linked at the top of the city’s website marked “COVID-19 Updates.”

Thank you for respecting the city’s need to protect the community, employees and customers. 

For more information, visit or call (425) 744-6206.
