Annexation Update

         As of March 21, 2016

Snohomish County  

The latest annexation to Bothell in Snohomish County was the 12-acre Bloomberg Hill Island Annexation, which was approved by the Bothell City Council in October, 2011, and went into effect December 31, 2012.

The remaining designated potential annexation area in Snohomish County (called a Municipal Urban Growth Area, or MUGA, under the Snohomish County Countywide Planning Policies) is 3,608 acres and wraps around the current Bothell city limits on the west, north and east.

This area was the subject of unsuccessful elections in November, 2011, and again in April, 2012.  No further pursuit of this entire potential annexation area is currently planned, although the City might consider annexation requests by individual neighborhoods or groups of neighborhoods within this area.  This is refered to as the direct petition method.
