The Governor’s Office announced its winners for its Smart Communities Awards this week, and Lake Stevens is on the list! The city, one of just 11 recipients, was honored for its Downtown Subarea Plan to create a city center and gathering place for residents and visitors.
Lake Stevens started working on plan projects four years ago, completing The Mill and renovations to North Cove Park so far. Long-term, the goal is to build a multi-use Civic Center for private enterprise, public services, and more community space.
