More than 25,000 people live in the area bounded by I-5, 112th Street SW, Highway 99 and 148th Street SW.

This Saturday the public is invited to a meeting to learn more about a plan to build a more connected and engaged community through what is being called the Mariner Community Campus. The plan covers an area south of 112th in south Everett stretching all the way to 148th. Here’s more about the plan from Sno-Isle Library.

The vision of what a community center might be for the Mariner area will gain shape at a public meeting on Saturday, April 13, at Mariner High School.

The April 13 public meeting is the first of two planned to help gather input from community members on what they might want from the project.

The second meeting is scheduled for May 11. Both meetings will be from 2-4:30 p.m. in the Mariner High School gym, 200 124th St. SW, Everett.

Translators for Spanish, Russian and Vietnamese speakers will be available along with free childcare and international food snacks.

“Sno-Isle Libraries is committed to partnering with other community services, including a Boys & Girls club and nearby schools, to provide accessible and responsive library services in the area,” said Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Director Lois Langer Thompson. “We’re excited about how the proposed campus will enhance the Mariner community.”

As part of the community campus vision process, a 10-question survey at marinercommunity.org is also helping to define community characteristics and identity. The survey is offered in eight languages.

“The Mariner Community Campus project is an exciting opportunity to co-create something vital in partnership with the community,” said Sno-Isle Libraries Community Engagement Coordinator Christine Stansfield. “We hope to learn from as many people as we can through this process, especially those who don’t typically see themselves represented in public processes such as this.”

Sno-Isle Libraries is one of a number of stakeholders interested in improving the Mariner community’s access to public and social services. More than 25,000 people live in the area bounded by I-5, 112th Street SW, Highway 99 and 148th Street SW. The area’s population is projected to grow substantially in the next 10 years.
