[ARCHIVED] City of MLT Seeks Volunteers for Diversity Commission

At their August 3 meeting, the City Council adopted an ordinance creating the city’s new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Commission to strive to ensure the community is welcoming and equitable for everyone.  The city invites any current Mountlake Terrace resident to apply to volunteer on the Commission by August 24, 2020.

In order to establish a well-represented Commission to consider the varied needs of the community, the city strongly encourages applicants of all cultural, racial, religious, sex/gender, sexual orientation, age and disability diversities to apply.

The DEI Commission will consist of seven (7) members with a mission of promoting and embracing diversity through action, education, and guidance. The Commission seeks to foster an understanding that includes, accepts, respects and appreciates each individual member of our community. Meeting dates and times will be determined by the Commission following its appointment. It is anticipated the Commission will meet a minimum of once a month.

Being a new Commission, the initial terms will be staggered, with subsequent appointments having a term of three years. Therefore, three (3) of the initial terms will expire on June 30, 2022 and four (4) of the initial terms will expire on June 30, 2023.

Mountlake Terrace residency is required and résumés may be included with your application if desired but they are not required. You can apply online or find the online form at For paper applications, you can download and print them from or call 425-744-6206 to have one mailed to you. Paper applications can be returned by mail (City Clerk, City of Mountlake Terrace, 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 200, Mountlake Terrace, WA  98043).

Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 24, 2020.  The city will contact you to schedule an interview with a City Council Subcommittee. Since we are currently unable to meet in person, these interviews will take place online or over the telephone. Following the interviews, the City Council appoint the new Commission at a meeting in September.
