The Edmonds Loop project took its first steps today to connect all of town on foot. Today’s inaugural walk was initiated by Celebrate Edmonds and included Mayor Earling and Swedish/Edmonds Chief Executive David Jaffe.
The goal of the Edmonds Loop project is to connect local areas via walking routes to bring together:
· Edmonds waterfront,
· downtown businesses,
· Swedish/Edmonds hospital,
· Edmonds Community College, and
· branches into Mountlake Terrace, Brier, and Lynnwood.
“This is not about building new trails,” said Janette Turner, Celebrate Edmonds member, “but about capitalizing on our existing infrastructure to help residents and visitors enjoy our walkable community.”
Today’s inaugural walk was sponsored by My Edmonds News and Waterfront Coffee owners Victoria and Steve Balas, and led by Celebrate Edmonds members Janette Turner, Keeley O’Connell, Craig Stewart, David Jaffe, Andy Cline, and Tim Steen.
