Council committees to review proposals Tuesday for Frances Anderson playground bids, ground-floor height limits


The Edmonds City Council’s three committees will have a full agenda Tuesday night, March 13, including reviewing bids for the new Frances Anderson Center playground structure and an Edmonds Economic Development Commission recommendation to consider changing the required 15-foot ground floor height in the downtown BD1 zone.

Here’s the complete agenda, along with meeting room locations. The committee meetings begin after a short business meeting at 7 p.m. in the Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete agenda here.

Here are the individual committee meeting agendas:

Parks and Public Works Committee (Council Chamber)
1. FAC Playground bids
2. Presentation of a 10-foot street dedication to the city at 19325 80th Ave W. related to a proposed 2-foot short plat.
3. Report on Public Works committee agenda items

Finance Committee (Jury Meeting Room)
1. Ordinance amending the city’s loan agreement with the Edmonds Public Facilities District to reflect the PFD’s plan to refinance bonds to save money.
2. A request for an Edmonds Public Facilities District “grant anticipation loan” to cover repair work on the Edmonds Center for Arts roof. The entity has been awarded grants to cover the repair work, but they must pay for the work upfront and then apply for reimbursement. This loan would cover the costs until reimbursement occurs.
3. Authorizing the mayor to execute a property use permit addendum for the 4th Avenue parking lot.
4. January monthly financial report.

Public Safety, Personnel and Planning Committee (Police Training Room)
1. Police Department surplus property
2. Ordinance amending ECC Chapter 5.14, which addresses a decision by the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office to no longer accept any cases involving simple possession of Schedule I drugs in quantities of less than two grams.
3. An additional extension of the current Woodway Police Services Interlocal Agreement, to allow more time to negotiate a new agreement.
4. Review of an Edmonds Economic Development Commission recommendation to consider changes to the currently required 15-foot ground floor height in BD1 zone. (You can read more on that proposal during an earlier council presentation here.)
