The City of Edmonds Planning Board is scheduled Wednesday, July 11 to make a recommendation on a draft housing strategy that will be forwarded to the Edmonds City Council for its review and later action.
You can read more about the issue and the Planning Board’s June public hearing on the draft plan here.
The draft housing strategy, including the Planning Board’s recommendation and other information, will be considered by the City Council, who is responsible for the final decision. Council meetings are tentatively planned as:
Aug, 7–Public hearing
Aug. 21–Discussion and direction
Aug. 28–Additional discussion and possible wrap-up
Sept. 4–Finalize (?)
Other meetings as needed
City council approval or adoption of the final housing strategy “will provide direction on more specific actions that can be undertaken in the near future — but will not automatically change city budgets and codes,” the Planning Board agenda notes. “Any actions that amend city codes or budget will be decided only after necessary details are spelled out and a public process takes place so that community input and other information can be considered.”
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the council chamber, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N., Edmonds. You can see the complete Planning Board agenda here.
