Edmonds City Council June 1 set to revisit tree regulations, housing recommendations

The Edmonds City Council at its Tuesday, June 1 meeting will attempt to tackle two agenda items that were postponed from last week’s meeting due to lack of time: Consideration of next steps for developing additional tree regulations and continued discussion on the council’s process for reviewing Citizens Housing Commission recommendations.

In addition, the council is set to review proposals for changing the Edmonds Salary Commission schedule of issuing salary changes from every two years to every four years. And it will consider an Edmonds Planning Board recommendation to amend city code to make on-site outdoor dining spaces on commercial property permissable without  a conditional use permit, as long as certain standards are met.  The council approved an interim ordinance on the matter in December 2020, with the understanding it would be reviewed by the Edmonds Planning Board.

Other items on the council agenda include:

– A proclamation of National Gun Violence Awareness Day
– A wrap-up report from the 2021 state legislative session
– A resolution adopting Council Rules of Procedure
