The Bothell City Council adopted a $250 million capital facilities plan (CFP) for 2009-2015 at its June 17 meeting.

The CFP is a seven-year comprehensive financial plan and needs assessment that identifies and prioritizes funding for capital improvement projects such as parks, road improvements, utilities and new facilities. The approximately $250 million CFP incorporates more than 40 projects over a seven-year period.

The city’s funding sources for the transportation, parks and facilities projects are leveraged with grants and mitigation for a combined total of about $239 million. The funding sources for utility

improvements include various designated revenues from water, sewer and stormwater utilities, amounting to around $28 million.

Project highlights include a State Route 527 multiway boulevard, park and open-space acquisition, the Bothell Crossroads SR 522 Realignment, a new city hall and Public Works Operations Center and Main Street enhancements and extension.

The city’s portion of the funding for these projects come from real-estate excise tax (REET) and one-time revenue transfers from the general fund. Matching grants and mitigation account for more than 46 percent of the funding.
