Edmonds City Council set to hold public hearings March 15 on art projects, parks plan

Three public hearings — two on proposed city art projects and a third on the city’s 2022 Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan — are among the items before the Edmonds City Council during its Tuesday, March 16, business meeting.

You can learn more about the proposed art projects in our previous story here.

The council is also scheduled to further discuss issues related to reinstatement of the city’s citizens salary commission, which sets salaries for the mayor and city council. The council voted at its March 1 meeting to approve “as a broad concept” an ordinance that reestablishes the citizens salary commission, which was disbanded last year — with details to be worked out later.

Also on the council agenda is an ordinance that would amend city code to clarify the meeting times for the three council committee meetings, which are now held consecutively on the second Tuesday of the month.

And the council is scheduled to consider a request from Edmonds Police Chief Michelle Bennett that the two new assistant chiefs she is hiring from other agencies receive additional vacation and sick leave as part of their hiring agreement.

  1. Is there a confirmed or potential date for Edmonds City Council to return to in person (or preferably hybrid) meetings that I’ve missed?
    I have been checking on the City website but don’t see any mention of it being re-addressed in the Extended Agendas.


    1. The last time it was discussed, the target date was March 22. Hoping it will be addressed tomorrow night.


  2. Sorry, do you know if it starts at 7pm or at 5 pm etc? Thank you if you know. Thank you if you don’t. Hi T.
