Public hearing Tuesday on proposed land use designation change in south Edmonds


The Edmonds City Council will hold a public hearing this Tuesday, Oct. 3 on an Edmonds Planning Board recommendation to change the land use designation for properties located at 9107 and 9111 236th St. S.W. in south Edmonds.

The planning board recommendation calls for changing the properties’ current Single Family Urban 1 designation to that of Edmonds Way Corridor. According to a memo accompanying the council agenda, the subject properties currently are developed with a single family residence (9107 236th St S.W.) and a legal non-conforming multi-family residence (9111 236th St. S.W). To apply for a rezone, the properties’ owners must first obtain a change in the City of Edmonds Comprehensive Plan designation from Single Family Urban 1 to a designation that would allow for a future proposal to change the zoning to an RM (multiple residential) zone.

“They chose to seek the designation “Edmonds Way Corridor” because it is the designation adjacent to the east, north, and south,” the council memo noted.

Also on the council agenda:

– A proclamation for Arts & Humanities Month.

– A presentation on “Taming Bigfoot.” See related story here.

– A “REET 101” presentation — (REET stands for Real Estate Excise Tax).

– Authorization to contract with James G. Murphy to sell surplus city equipment.

– Review of a new employee position upgrade of Environmental Programs Manager within the Planning Division of the Development Services Department.

Approval of a council legislative /administrative assistant position announcement. That job that was formerly held by Andrew Pierce, whose contract ended in August.

– Council committee meeting reports.

– Reports on outside board and committee meetings.

The regular council meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. It will be preceded by an executive session at 6:30 p.m. to discuss pending or potential litigation. You can see the complete agenda here.
