Now at seven members, Edmonds City Council has a full plate Tuesday night


Newly appointed Edmonds City Councilmember Thomas Mesaros will have a busy evening in store Tuesday night as he joins fellow councilmembers for his first full meeting. Among the items on the agenda for (finally) seven-member council:

– an update on the Edmonds School District from Superintendent Nick Brossoit.

– the Edmonds Arts Commission 2013 annual report.

–  a resolution reaffirming support for demolishing the current building housing the Edmonds Senior Center and building a new facility at the center’s 220 Railroad Ave. location.

– a closed record review of the Edmonds Planning Board’s recommendation to approve a proposal to rezone one parcel of land — at 7533 228th St. S.W. — from Residential Multifamily (RM-2.4) to Residential Multifamily (RM-1.5) to accommodate an additional residential unit in what is now a seven-unit apartment building.

–  a public hearing and potential action on potential sale of surplus City property located near the intersection of 184th Street Southwest and 80th Avenue West.  (See related Letter to the Editor here.)

– an update on intersection improvements at 76th Avenue West and 212th Street Southwest.

– a report on project costs for the watermain replacement and temporary overlay on 76th Avenue.

– a review  of the city’s current sign code for potential amendment and/or enforcement options.

– a request to authorize a Professional Services Agreement with Shannon & Wilson for tasks to complete the Final Feasibility Study for the Willow Creek Daylighting/Edmonds Marsh Restoration Project.

And a note for those who were expecting to be able to comment on the proposed Sunset Avenue Walkway project: The public comment period will NOT be this Tuesday, March 18, but instead will take place next Tuesday, March 25, according to Edmonds Public Works Director Phil Williams.

“Staff is working on some additional design concepts and are engaging our consultant to help analyze the pros and cons of each one and prepare graphics that can be used to illustrate the various options,” Williams said. “This work won’t be ready until the 25th.”

You can see the complete agenda here. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. following a half-hour executive session on property acquisition that starts at 6:30 p.m. The council chambers are located in the Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N., Edmonds.
