Bothell citizens, business and community leaders came together several years ago to develop a vision for Bothell’s downtown and for Bothell’s future as a whole. The first downtown revitalization projects broke ground in 2010. To date, the City has invested over $100 million in vital capital projects as part of a $150 million program initially planned and approved several years ago. These improvements, according to economic studies, will leverage $650 million in private investment. Already Bothell has garnered $200 million in private investment planned for downtown in the next several years.
