The City of Mount Vernon and Skagit County held a joint meeting on March 28, 2018 and adopted an agreement to create a cooperative relationship and collaborate on shared projects to meet the needs of the community.
The initial project is now in motion. The City needs a new, larger library while the County needs a more modern, updated Senior/Community Center. We are working together on the feasibility of a joint Library/Community Center with structured parking in the historic downtown area. This visionary project will enhance our community learning space and provide senior nutrition "Meals on Wheels" and program space for dynamic senior activities.
