City council June 22 set to hold public hearing on outdoor dining in private spaces, consider tree code amendments

Two public hearings are on the Edmonds City Council agenda for Tuesday, June 22. One focuses on a recommendation to make permanent an interim ordinance, passed in December 2020, that allows restaurants to include outdoor dining spaces on existing commercial property without a conditional use permit. The other public hearing involves an amendment to a city code govering unit lot subdivisions.

The council will also consider additional amendments to the city’s newly passed tree code and hear a presentation on a resolution rejecting racially based harassment and hate crimes.

  1. Please do not let the Restaurants continue their Quonset Hut “buildings” in downtown Edmonds. This was a temporary help to get them through the Pandemic.
    There are many more businesses in Edmonds that have been hurt by giving the restaurants the ability to take up parking and sidewalk space. Those businesses are equally important to downtown Edmonds. I have missed being able to go to Cline’s, the Edmonds Bookstore, Bountiful Home, and the Edmonds Theater.
    Many of us have refused to go to the Quonset Huts to “dine”. It will be great to go back to them again when they are ready to “play fair”.
    In the meantime see you at Five on the 104. No Quonset Huts necessary to find a good restaurant here in town.
