About Lake Stevens

Lake Stevens is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States that surrounds the lake bearing the same name. It is southeast of Marysville, north of the city of Snohomish, and east of Everett. The population was 6,361 at the 2000 census. The population as of April 2009 is 14,800, with much of the growth due to annexation.

History

Lake Stevens was officially incorporated on November 29, 1960.

Believed to be named after Governor Isaac I. Stevens, Lake Stevens was first settled in 1886 on a 160-acre homestead along the east shore. By 1890 the first town in the area, "Ferry," was established. Its name was later changed to "Hartford," and it served as the main link from the famed Monte Cristo timber and mining resources to the world.

In 1905 a railroad spur was built by the Rucker Brothers Timber Company, linking Hartford with Lake Stevens. Two years later Rucker Mill was opened, located along and in the north cove of the lake (original pilings can still be seen in the old lake outflow area just south of the boat launch). In 1919, the mill, which became known as the "world's largest sawmill," burned and was partially rebuilt. When it burned a second time in 1925 the mill was dismantled and Lake Stevens lost the very industry which caused its founding. However, by then a flourishing town was established and continued under its own momentum.

From the 1920s to the 50's Lake Stevens was primarily a resort community, with many public and private resort beaches scattered around the shore. In 1960 Lake Stevens incorporated as a City with a population of 900. Soon, its popularity and natural beauty, combined with changing commuter habits, attracted more and more residents, changing its character to that of a suburban community. By 2000 the City had grown to a population of 6,361 in approximately 1.8 square miles. The lake remains the focal point of the greater Lake Stevens community for recreation and as "a symbol of our need to provide for a sustainable existence that will protect our natural environment".

City Government

Mayor and Council

Lake Stevens government operates under the mayor-council system. The mayor serves as the executive of the city, whereas the council serves as the legislative body of the city.

Voters elect a mayor and seven councilmembers to serve, each to four-year terms. All positions are non-partisan. Elections are staggered, meaning that not all positions are up for election in the same year. Currently, elections for the Mayor and Positions 3, 4, and 5 are held in the same year, whereas elections for Positions 1, 2, 6, and 7 are held two years after. In cases of vacancies or appointments, elections for those specific positions may be held for the unexpired portion of the term outside that position's normal election cycle, as was the case in the 2007 election cycle for Position #6. The table shown below details the current make up:

Position Name Held Position Since Current Term Ends  % Support in Last Election
Mayor Vern Little November 2006* December 2011 61.43% (2007)
Position 1 Heather Coleman January 2006 December 2009 61.45% (2005)
Position 2 Neal Dooley February 1991* December 2009 67.34% (2005)
Position 3 John Spencer January 2008 December 2011 56.64% (2007)
Position 4 Mark Somers January 2008 December 2011 51.42% (2007)
Position 5 Suzanne Quigley January 2007* December 2011 68.39% (2007)
Position 6 Kathy Holder February 2007* December 2009 61.46% (2007)
Position 7 Tom Hartwell January 2006 December 2009 63.66% (2005)

.*Originally appointed to fill vacancy in said position.

Non-elected Positions

Prominent (non-elected) positions for the city include: City Administrator, City Clerk, Police Chief, Planning Director, Public Works Director, and Community Programs Planner.

Boards and Commissions

The city has several boards and commissions whose role is to advise the Council on a variety of issues specific to that board or commission. Members of each board or commission are volunteers from the community, either as residents or property owners from within the Urban Growth Area. They are appointed by the Mayor with Council approval. The exception is with the Civil Service Commission, which all members, who must reside inside the city limits, are appointed by the Mayor exclusively. These boards and commissions include:

Annexation and the Unincorporated “Urban Growth Area"

Since 2005, the population of the City of Lake Stevens has doubled from around 7,400 to 14,800 currently. This has been primarily due to an effort called "One Community Around the Lake" to bring the unincorporated areas within the Urban Growth Area into the city limits. The table shown below details recent annexation efforts by the community:

Area Annexed Month & Year Acres Population New City Population
Northlake January 2006 855 2,300 9,700
Frontier Village December 2006 708 3,600 13,300
Soper Hill May 2007 292 1,200 14,500

Southwest Annexation

The city is currently considering annexing the 9 square mile area to the southwest, appropriately named the "Southwest Annexation". On July 7, 2009, the Boundary Review Board for Snohomish County, with a 3-0 vote, gave the go ahead to send the issue to voters on the November 3, 2009 ballot. The population of the territory is estimated at over 10,000 residents and would be the largest annexation in the city's history. Should these voters approve joining Lake Stevens, the population of the city would grow by more than two-thirds.

School District

Lake Stevens consists of two high schools (Lake Stevens High School and PROVE alternative school), one mid-high school (Cavelero), two middle schools (Lake Stevens and North Lake) six elementary schools (Mt. Pilchuck, Sunnycrest, Hillcrest, Glenwood, Skyline, and Highland).

Community Newspaper

Lake Stevens Journal is the community newspaper and is circulated weekly.
