The delegation met with several legislators who represent Bothell and other regions of the state.

Bothell deputy mayor Davina Duerr and councilmembers Liam Olsen and Tom Agnew spent the day in Olympia on March 25, meeting with legislators and advocating for the city’s priorities.

During a meeting with Rep. Jared Reed (D-Mill Creek), the delegation learned that the current House budget includes $400,000 to complete the Canyon Park subarea plan and $1.08 million for the bridge at Bothell Landing, via the Washington Wildlife and Recreation program.
