The Edmonds City Council is meeting a day early this week — Monday — to avoid a conflict with primary election day, Tuesday, Aug. 17. The agenda includes the following:
-A public hearing to extend Interim Ordinance No. 3787, which would allow closed-record administrative appeals of preliminary Planned Residential Development decisions and eliminate overlap of perimeter buffers and setback for exterior lot lines. Extension of the interim ordinance is proposed to enable the Edmonds Planning Board to complete its review of the issue.
– A discussion on proposed Planning Board updates to the land use permit review procedures contained in the Edmonds Community Development Code.
– A discussion about ways the City of Edmonds and the Snohomish County PUD can cooperate as PUD installs fiber optic cable to reinforce it grid within the Edmonds city limits. (For background on Edmonds’ fiber optic network, see Citizen Harry’s report here.)
– A presentation by SustainableWorks, a community-based non-profit created to help homeowners with home retrofits to reduce energy use while also creating jobs. They received a federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant and Edmonds/Lynnwood will be their next project location.
