The Edmonds City Council at its Tuesday, May 15 meeting will hold a public hearing on a proposal to amend the city’s Comprehensive Plan map designation of 10 properties located between Highway 99 and Edmonds Way/SR 104.

The properties, located north of the Highway 99/SR 104 interchange and south of 240th Street Southwest, are currently designated Edmonds Way Corridor. If approved, this proposal would change the designation to Highway 99 Corridor. It would allow property owners in the area to seek a subsequent rezone from Residential Multi-Family to General Commercial.

According to the council agenda staff report, the 10 properties total 2.84 acres and are currently developed with a single-family residence (built in 1947); two commercial office buildings (built in 1952 and 1960); a 38-unit condominium (Edrnonds Greenery, built in 1979); and a five-unit townhome project (Jenna Lane,
built in 2015).

Outside of Jenna Lane townhomes, no major redevelopment has occurred in the area since the City of Edmonds annexed the property in 1983, the staff report notes.

The council is also scheduled to consider approval of a final unit lot subdivision for the Brackett’s Corner development, a 14-detached dwelling unit project under construction at the southwest corner of 212th Avenue Southwest and 80th Avenue West.

Finally, the council will hold a study session and possibly take action on the following additional items:

– Presentation on comprehensive plan implementation

– Shoreline Master Program periodic review

– Critical Areas Ordinance report

Also the council is set to hear proclamations for Public Works Week and National Police Week; a presentation from Friends of the Edmonds Library; and a Regional Fire Authority presentation on the Edmonds Street Waterfront Connector.

The meeting will begin 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete agenda here.
