The City of Lake Stevens invites our community members to a virtual public meeting on Thursday, April 8 at 6:00 pm, presenting initial alternative concepts for a potential Civic Center at Chapel Hill. After viewing the presentation, community members are asked to take an online survey to share their input. Join us at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87944593811
The City of Lake Stevens is working in collaboration with the Lake Stevens Sewer District and Sno-Isle Libraries in an exploratory process to evaluate the possibilities of a Civic Center campus concept. The proposal includes a new City Hall and Permit Center, Lake Stevens Sewer District administrative offices, and Lake Stevens Library in one consolidated Civic Center campus adjacent to transportation lines and easily accessible to the City Center. Currently, these City services are in undersized, portable and/or temporary buildings.
The key objectives of a new Lake Stevens Civic Center are to provide efficient and financially sustainable public facilities that may reduce costs by sharing common building spaces and infrastructure between agencies, deliver municipal and community services effectively to Lake Stevens residents, and maintain a strong community identity.
In December 2020, the City and Library issued an online survey during the early exploratory phase to collect public input. General findings from this survey were presented during the March 23, 2021 Lake Stevens City Council Meeting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GsMFlQ-PYs Since that survey, initial concepts for the Lake Stevens Civic Center have been developed and will be presented to the public during a virtual public meeting on April 8, 2021, https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87944593811
This meeting will be recorded and made available to the public on the City’s website along with a second online survey to solicit public feedback on the design alternatives presented. The purpose of this second survey is to solicit community feedback on three concept alternative designs before a final preferred concept is developed.
The survey will be open for two weeks from April 8, 2021, to April 22, 2021, and posted here https://www.lakestevenswa.gov/civiccenter We will then share a preferred alternative with the public.
