Edmonds City Council set to meet as Committee of Whole Sept. 8

The Edmonds City Council Tuesday, Sept. 8, will be meeting remotely at 7 p.m. as a Committee of the Whole, with the following items on the agenda for discussion only:

– A report on the Countywide Buildable Lands Program, featuring a demographer from Snohomish County. The buildable lands review process is carried out through Snohomish County Tomorrow; participating cities must report every few years on their use of land to determine whether there is an adequate land supply in urban areas for future population and job growth.

– An update on Vision 2050. Read more about that effort in our earlier story.

– A presentation of preliminary findings for the Ballinger Regional Facility Feasibility Study, defined as a “green stormwater infrastructure project.”

– The city’s July 2020 monthly financial report

– A proposal to amend the Edmonds Cares Fund Ordinance “to allow for disbursement of more than one grant per individual or household based on an analysis of continuing need and/or consideration of other, new applicants,” according to the agenda.

Prior to that 7 p.m. meeting, the council will hold an executive session at 6 p.m. — closed to the public —  “to receive and evaluate complaints or charges brought against a public officer or employee,” the agenda notes.
