Edmonds City Council to hold public hearing May 16 on unit lot subdivisions


The Edmonds City Council at its Tuesday, May 16 business meeting will hold a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the city code that would allow unit lot subdivisions in Edmonds.

The code amendment proposal came about via a request from a private applicant, Westgate Woods LLC, which is planning a multi-family project in Edmonds. The Edmonds Planning Board held a public hearing on that request April 26 and recommended that the City Council approve the amendment.
