Bothell is growing and thriving. From a small, rural town to a prosperous suburban community of 40,000 residents, Bothell continues to keep and attract new residents for its high quality of life, excellent schools and dynamic businesses.
To ensure Bothell continues to prosper, citizens, business and community leaders came together several years ago to develop a vision for Bothell’s future. The plan developed calls for public improvements and strategic actions to revitalize downtown and address growing demands for more park land and public spaces throughout the city which will only become more difficult to acquire as the city’s population increases and land is used for other purposes.
Over the past several years much progress has been made. Private investments are transforming downtown into a vibrant shopping, cultural and housing center that is the heart of the city. But to complete the vision more parks and public spaces are needed throughout the city.
On November 4, 2014 Bothell voters will be asked to consider the Parks and Public Spaces Levy that would raise $42 million to create destination parks, recreational opportunities, and downtown public spaces and enhancements.
