Lake Washington School District Levy Increase (February 2011)
This measure was approved
- YES 21,786 (60.75%)
- NO 14,976 (39.25%)
This measure sought to increase the current property tax rate by $.31 per $1,000 of assessed property value in order to help with over crowding of district schools. Specifically it will go towards building permanent facilities for high school and elementary school students. The money will also go towards building a new secondary school in the district to house more students. The Seattle King County REALTORS® have come out endorsing this measure noting that good schools are important to potential home buyers and are important for the community overall.
