[ARCHIVED] Bothell residents: Time to weigh in on the need for major infrastructure projects

Pouring concrete

The City is undertaking several separate processes related to funding and community input is important in all of these endeavors.

Capital Facilities Plan and Transportation Improvement Program

Starting today through April 16, the City of Bothell wants to hear from you about how it should spend taxpayer dollars and other revenues on major infrastructure projects such as parks, buildings, open space, traffic improvements, sidewalks and utilities. Your participation is important as the City reaffirms the first five years and develops the final two years of the 2019-2025 Capital Facilities Plan (CFP) and Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The City Council adopts an updated CFP every two years. This plan prioritizes how the City spends money on Facilities, Parks and Open Spaces, Transportation, Water Utility, Storm and Surface Water Utility, and Sewer Utility projects. Through this process, CFP Projects are identified, prioritized and funded.

There are several opportunities to learn more and give your input in the CFP:

  • April 5: CFP Update Open House #1 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm at the Operations Center, 21233 20th Ave SE, Bothell, WA 98021;
  • June 20: CFP Update Open House #2 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm at City Hall, 18415 101st Ave NE, Rooms 107/108;
  • August 6 and 8 (tentative): Committee meetings;
  • September 18 (tentative): Council Study Session on the CFPPC recommended 2019-2025 CFP;
  • October 16 (tentative): Public Hearing with possible Council adoption of the 2019-2025 CFP to follow.

For more detailed information about the Capital Facilities Plan, please visit the City’s website or contact Public Works Director, Erin Leonhart, 425-806-6810 or Interim Parks and Recreation Director, Tracey Perkosky, 425-806-6756. 

Potential public safety ballot measure(s)

This spring, the City is gathering community comment about public safety services as it considers a public safety ballot measure(s). The demand for public safety services is straining the City’s general fund. Any Council decisions on a potential ballot measure would take place in June. A measure(s) could be placed on the general election ballot in November.

Biennial budget 

In addition to the CFP and TIP, the City is embarking on the biennial budget process to develop the 2019-2020 budget. The biennial budget funds most of the basic operations of the City. Public hearings take place in the fall and the Council approves the budget by the end of the year.
