About the levy

The nine-year Safe Streets & Sidewalk levy funds street maintenance and safety improvements for neighborhood streets and arterials, including resurfacing, school walk routes, sidewalks and crosswalks.
  1. Why do we need the levy?

    Bothell is among many Washington cities that lost previously dedicated road funding. Voter-approved initiatives cut revenue streams requiring public approval to replace funding.

  2. How much will it cost me?

    The investment Funding this measure requires a property tax of 50¢ for every $1,000 of assessed value. The estimated cost for the median home in Bothell (an assessed value of $376,000) is less than $16/month, or $188 annually. The levy applies to all taxable properties in the City limits.

  3. What does my money pay for?

    Levy funds will be used solely to maintain and extend the life of Bothell’s street system and improve pedestrian safety.
