    Improving streets in Edmonds is the goal of the Edmonds Complete Streets Campaign, sponsored by the Cascade Land Conservancy. The group is hosting an organizing session at 6 p.m.tonight, July 13, at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St., Room 302.

    Everyone is invited to attend and voice their priorities for improving Edmonds’ streets or other projects you’d like to work on. Your input will guide both this campaign and future Community Stewards projects sponsored by the Cascade Land Conservancy.

    Complete Streets means making streets work for all users: pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and car drivers of all ages and abilities. The organizing session is designed to do the following:

    • Identify priorities of Edmonds’ residents .
    • Plan neighborhood outreach strategies for spreading the word.
    • Determine political and neighborhood resources that will ensure Complete Streets’ success in Edmonds.

    1. This is grass roots work at its finest, and tackles an issue key to the future of Edmonds. Bringing citizens out in force to express their views and obtain consensus on a vision of the future is incredibly hard work, but also worth the effort. Many of us talk about how we’d like Edmonds to move forward… well… this is how the work is done.

      This only works if people show up, which is hard to do when the sun is out. Bring a friend, and spread the word!

    2. Great meeting tonight – thanks to all of those who could attend. Saw many of our dedicated activist citizens there, but more importantly, NEW people! And new people are the lifeblood of any citizen based initiative. If you weren’t able to make it, contact the Edmonds Bike Club, or Sustainable Edmonds friends you know. Or, contact the Cascade Land Conservancy rep, Patrick Green, at patrickg@cascadeland.org for info, and how to join the effort to draft “Complete Streets” guidelines for Edmonds.
