The city has a population of 18,244 as of the 2010 census population was 18,244. Mill Creek is one of the wealthiest suburbs in the Seattle metropolitan area and was originally built as a planned community.

The city lies along State Route 527 and North Creek, a tributary of the Sammamish River, and extends from Interstate 5 in the west to State Route 9 in the east. Mill Creek was a planned community conceived in the 1970s and built around a country club and golf course, with other development occurring nearby. It was incorporated as a city in 1983 and underwent major population growth due to continued suburban development and annexation of nearby areas. The city's downtown area is centered around the Mill Creek Town Center, a mixed-use lifestyle center and retail complex that opened in 2004.

History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Mill Creek was developed as a "country suburb" in the mid-1970s by Olympus Development, who had originally considered the Chinook Jargon word "Klahanie" for the subdivisions. Mill Creek was officially incorporated on August 30, 1983. The city has rapidly grown with large number of families and jobs and now contains a mixed-use, city-sponsored complex called Mill Creek Town Center. Before the turn of the 21st century much of Mill Creek was woods, but recently many apartment complexes have been built all along Bothell-Everett Highway and some other roads throughout the city.
