Mukilteo, WA. Mayor Jennifer Gregerson and Management Service Director Steve Edin travelled to Olympia last week to meet with several legislators to thank them for supporting the City with the important projects funded from the recently passed Capital Budget, supporting the City’s waterfront redevelopment.
“For more than 60 years, 20 acres of prime Mukilteo waterfront was owned by the U.S. Department of Defense (Air Force), closed to access by the public,” stated Mayor Gregerson. “This property was transferred to the Port of Everett and NOAA, and now we finally have a chance to reclaim a significant portion of our waterfront with more resources to work toward the demolition and site work to prepare City properties for development as parks and commercial spaces.”
To ensure that the waterfront will be developed according to a common vision, the City developed a Downtown Waterfront Master Plan that integrates the multimodal ferry terminal with a vibrant downtown, public parks and beach access. That plan can be viewed on the City’s website: https://mukilteowa.gov/departments/planning-development/planning-long-range/downtown-waterfront-master-plan/2016-downtown-waterfront-master-plan/
Mayor Gregerson and MSD Edin also discussed additional capital needs for the Harbour Reach Corridor Project and Old Town pedestrian access projects, as well as potential funding in the supplemental capital budget for the Peace Park. “It’s important to visit our representatives and others to tell the story of Mukilteo’s priorities and what our state government can do to invest in these important projects,” said Mayor Gregerson.
