 Transportation Benefit District Funding Approved

Thank you to our community for supporting the Transportation Benefit District (TBD) funding in the November 8 General Election. 

Thanks to the TBD, the city will be able to fund safe walkway and sidewalk connections to schools, street maintenance for high-volume roads, and traffic congestion relief. The city will also be able to leverage TBD funding to secure millions more in grants to pay for larger transportation projects in the city.  

Please continue to visit this page for updates as we build these street, sidewalk, and safety improvements. 

The TBD is funded through a 0.2 percent sales tax or two cents on a $10 purchase. This funding method means visitors who shop, dine, or recreate in Lake Stevens also help pay for city sidewalks, roads, and trails they use. The TBD is projected to raise approximately $1.5 million per year for projects and matching funds for larger grants. 

Thank you again for your support.
