Application deadline extended for Edmonds Planning Board alternate member

The City of Edmonds invites residents to apply for service as the alternate member for the Edmonds Planning Board. The application deadline has been extended to 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14.

Under Edmonds City Code, the alternate will be appointed to serve in the event any regular member is absent or disqualified for any reason. Under those circumstances, the alternate will have all the powers of a regular member, including the right to vote on board decisions. The alternate is subject to the same attendance requirements as regular board members.

Interested individuals may obtain an application by contacting the Edmonds Mayor’s Office at 425-771-0247 or by visiting the city website. The city encourages women, people of color, and other minorities to apply for service on this board.

Qualified candidates will be interviewed by the mayor, who will make the appointment with city council confirmation.

  1. I encourage anyone interested in helping shape the future of Edmonds to apply for this position on the Planning Board. The board has important responsibilities, including the duty to review and advise City Council on all amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. That’s important now that the City is embarking on a 2-year program to amend and update the Comprehensive Plan, the document that will guide Edmonds’ growth and development for the coming 20 years.

    The Board also advises City Council on all changes to the zoning code and all changes to the zoning map. For more information on the Board’s composition and responsibilities, go to the City’s website and search for Edmonds City Code Chapter 10.40.

    The Planning Board meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays each month at 7:00 PM. We have been meeting via Zoom, but now that the governor’s state of emergency has been lifted, we expect to return to in-person meetings in City Council chambers.

    Roger Pence, Chair
    Edmonds Planning Board
