Reminder: City to kick off Hwy 99-area renewal project with virtual open house June 30

Share your ideas on how the City of Edmonds can improve livability for neighborhoods in the Highway 99 area during a virtual open house to launch the Highway 99 Area Renewal project. The meeting will be Wednesday, June 30 from 6-7:30 p.m.

“We need residents to give their input to help us identify specific problem areas, safety concerns, abandoned buildings and nuisances,” said Mayor Mike Nelson. “Our Highway 99 residents should have a safe and livable neighborhood just like every other part of our city.”

The Highway 99 Area Renewal project builds on past and on-going city efforts to improve the quality of life and safety along the corridor. It distinguishes itself from other Highway 99 projects in that it is not focused on transportation-related issues or development code. The goal is to work with the community to develop an actionable plan that identifies near- and long-term solutions to achieve needed improvements.

  1. Close off the end of 76th to residents only. Have all traffic routed to 99 where a left turn will take travelers to businesses on 99. The small leftover 76th at 22700 is used as a speedway to 99! . No businesses are on this street. The tire place can be accessed from 99 and the Rite aidlot. All. Apts there are residential.. no thru traffic ! Barricade 76th at 99.

    1. Yes absolutely. As a resident living on 76th, speeding is a huge problem on this street and as Margaret mentions, the only reason people travel this way is to cut off 3 min. of driving to get to HWY-99 coming from Shoreline or going south from HWY-99. This would be a fantastic idea to make this area more livable and safe. I will add that my family and most people living around my home are young families with children. We cannot let our kids play outside in our front yard due to the traffic issues.
