The meeting will be similar to the one held Dec. 3 at the Edmonds Library. It will include a short presentation on housing developments, the use of multifamily tax exemption and the status of a draft housing strategy, along with questions from the audience and responses from Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling and city staff.
“We believe the community is looking for information, as well as expressing ideas about housing needs for the future,” Earling said. This particular session is being held outside the Edmonds Bowl to provide more geographic diversity, he added.
An initial draft housing strategy was released this summer and generated a wide range of comments and questions. The strategy is now on hold until it can be determined whether or how to continue the effort, the city said in an announcement.
