Both the King County and Snohomish County canvassing boards certified the results of the Nov. 8 general election Nov. 29.

Bothell annexation

The election finished with 3,767 “no” votes (53 percent) to 3,359 “yes” votes (47 percent) in the unincorporated Snohomish County North, East, West Bothell Annexation (NEWBA) area. Proposition 1 needed a simple majority to pass.

According to Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe, citizens can petition for annexation again and the City Council would have to approve again to place it on the ballot.

He added that the NEWBA area — 5.6 square miles with a population of 22,283 residents — is still within the city’s Municipal Urban Growth Area (MUGA), and “at some point in time, it will be part of Bothell, at least in accordance with the state’s Growth Management Act.”

As for the additional 6,000 residents who could be annexed within the Potential Annexation Area (PAA) in unincorporated King County, Stowe said the city continues to work out the interlocal agreements in that area.
