City Hall Parking Lots to Close Starting July 25


parking lot closed

The City is about to undertake site preparations for a new City Hall that involve the entire city hall block. The parking lots on the north side (corner of 101st Ave NE and NE 185th St) and on the southwest side at Bothell Way NE and NE 183rd will be closed as of July 25. Visitors to City Hall, for short-term, less than 15-minute visits, can park in any of the 3 signed parking spaces in the Police Department lot across the street. Longer-term visitors to City Hall or to Police may park in the spaces on the north side of the Police Department lot.  


The City is aware of the importance of providing parking for customers to City Hall and to local businesses. With that in mind, the City is committed to directing its employees to park in designated alternative locations and to be aware of keeping on-street parking available for customers of downtown businesses.


Additionally, some lane closures and roadway impacts are anticipated on 183rd, 185th, and 101st as new utilities lines are put in, and construction starts for the new Bothell City Hall. Construction on the new City Hall is scheduled to start July 25, 2014 and is expected to be completed in October of 2015, including a 250-stall garage. Go to the City's homepage to read more. 

Parks and Public Spaces Levy


We love Public Spaces LogoTo ensure Bothell continues to prosper, citizens, business and community leaders came together several years ago to develop improvements and strategic actions to revitalize downtown and address growing demands for more park land and public spaces throughout the city which will only become more difficult to acquire as the city's population increases and land is used for other purposes.


Over the past several years much progress has been made. Private investments are transforming downtown into a vibrant shopping, cultural and housing center that is the heart of the city. But to complete the vision, more parks and public spaces are needed throughout the city.


On November 4th, 2014 Bothell voters will be asked to consider the Parks and Public Spaces Levy that would raise $42 Million to create destination parks, recreational opportunities and downtown public spaces and enhancements.


The Bothell Wins campaign is co-chaired by two Chamber members, Leigh Henderson, Alexa's Café and Roger Cecil, Cecil and Associates. To learn more about Bothell Wins and why they support this measure visit
