More discussion on Westgate zoning changes at Tuesday’s Edmonds City Council meeting


The Edmonds City Council is scheduled to hold a work session Tuesday night on proposed changes to zoning of the Westgate commercial area. According tp the agenda posted on the City of Edmonds website, this will be “a follow-up discussion to the public hearing and Council discussion held in August on the Westgate code proposals recommended by the Planning Board.”

A new draft of the proposed code changes will be before the council, with changes that include “language improvements resulting from discussion with the City Attorney while other modifications address some of the Council concerns raised,” including requirements and definitions of open space and amenity space. The agenda also notes that some on the council have expressed a desire for “an interim 20-foot setback from SR-104 and 100th Ave W instead of the current 12-foot setback,” and that such a change could be accomplished by changing language in the draft code.

“During this meeting, staff will be presenting an outline of some of the questions/issues raised by Council to aid in the discussion,” the agenda adds.

Also on Tuesday night’s agenda:

– Arbor Day Proclamation

– Update on Edmonds Arts Commission temporary art projects on 4th Avenue Cultural Corridor

– Presentation on Development projects and activities

– Presentation and discussion on the Capital Facilities Plan/Capital Improvement Program Process

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an executive session on collective bargaining, followed by the regular meeting at 7 p.m. The location is the Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N., Edmonds. You can see the complete agenda here.
