City hosts annexation meetingsJOURNAL STAFF Over the next several weeks, the City of Lake Stevens will be hosting public meetings regarding the Southwest Annexation that will be going to the voters in that area in November.
These meetings will help citizens identify how annexation will affect them and their families and what will not change whether the annexation vote is passed or not.
Currently the city has a population of 14,500 and if the southwest annexation goes through the population will grow to 25,000 people and will include over nine square miles of land.
Meetings will take place on the second Tuesday of each month (except in July) and will be held at 6:30 p.m. The first meeting will be held on May 12 at Cavelero Mid High School. On June 9 the meeting will take place at the Community Center in downtown Lake Stevens. During Aquafest in July you can visit the City Booth for any questions or information you may need regarding the annexation.
Regular meetings will resume on August 11 at the Community Center and again on Sept. 8 at Cavelero. The last meeting will take place on Oct. 13, again at Cavelero Mid High School.
City staff and Council Members are available to meet with small groups such as a Home Owners Association meeting. To schedule please call the Community Programs Planner at 425-212-3315 or via email at email@example.com.
