After taking a week off to celebrate Edmonds’ 125th anniversary, the Edmonds City Council will hold both a business meeting and study session this Tuesday, including a public hearing on the draft master plan for redesigning Marina Beach to accommodate the daylighting of Willow Creek through the Edmonds Marsh and into Puget Sound.
In addition, the council will during its business meeting hold a public hearing on a permanent ordinance that prevents property developers from submitting more than one development application for the same property
The following items are on the agenda for the study session following the business meeting:
– A discussion of the 2015 NonRepresented Compensation Survey currently underway so that city staff can obtain guidance on developing a 2015 policy, which will eventually be brought back to council for approval.
– Discussion about possible creation of an Historic Preservation District in Edmonds.
– An amendment to an interlocal agreement with Snohomish County to receive $500,000 in Conservation Futures funds for Civic Field acquisition from the Edmonds School District. The funds were originally designated by the county to purchase beachfront property for open space and passive park purposes. When the owner decided not to sell the beachfront property, the city instead requested that the money used toward the Civic Field purchase, which the city is currently discussing with the school district.
– Presentation of council grant requests for the Tree Board and Diversity Commission.
Immediately preceding the 7 p.m. meeting — at 6:30 p.m. — the council is also scheduled to hold a separate meeting as the Transportation Benefit District (councilmembers serve in both capacities).
