2021 Levy Lid Lift

At its July 22, 2021 regular meeting the City Council passed Resolution 1810, placing Lake Forest Park Proposition 1 (“LFP Proposition 1”) on the November 2, 2021, general election ballot. Approval of  LFP Proposition 1 will help fund projects and services identified in the City’s Safe Streets and Parks, Recreation, Open Space, and Trails Plan. If approved, the funds will be raised by an increase in the maximum regular property tax rate in the City. 

Accompanying the November ballots will be the King County Voters’ Pamphlet. The Pamphlet will include a statement from the City explaining the effect of LFP Proposition 1, if approved. Also included in the Pamphlet will be statements in support of and in opposition to LFP Proposition 1. State law requires the City Council to appoint two committees to draft these pro and con statements for the Pamphlet. The committees can have no more than three members each; however, a committee may seek advice from persons outside the committee. In addition to drafting the pro or con statement, the committee will also have the opportunity to write a rebuttal statement addressing the opposing side’s Pamphlet statement.

Also at its regular meeting on July 22, 2021, the City Council appointed the following individuals to the PRO and CON committees:

PRO Committee: Vicki Pettiross, Rachel Chen, Annthea Vining

CON Committee: Bryce James, Don Nibauar, Jeff Snedden
