Reminder: Issues affecting city in 2023 topic of Edmonds Civic Roundtable meeting Jan. 23

The Edmonds Civic Roundtable (ECR) is hosting a community discussion Monday, Jan. 23 on issues affecting Edmonds.

Topics include:

  • What the city is doing well
  • Challenges facing Edmonds and
  • City issues you believe should be addressed.

In addition to providing an opportunity for a community discussion, ECR said it will use the ideas shared to plan future programs.

The meeting will be from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Edmonds Waterfront Center 1st floor — The Studio — 220 Railroad Ave. Visit the website here to register. A Zoom link for those attending online will be sent prior to the presentation.

  1. Anyone else try to sign up for this? I wanted to zoom it but I was unable to access a way to do anything. I believe this if sincere could be made much simpler for our citizens here in Edmonds. The CC sure makes it simple to zoom. Whats up?

    1. It takes a few steps but if you go to the bottom of the page of the link provided, there’s a button that says “Register”. From there, you click the meeting link on the calendar for the event and that’s how you sign up. You will receive an email with a Zoom link after you do that, is my understanding. — Teresa

  2. This event by Edmond Civic Round Table is everyone’s chance to participate in discussion about our future. Participants will be able to discuss what is good about our Govt and what can be improved. It will also give participants the opportunity to help set the agenda for future discussions.

    Sign up and help with the discussion for our future.

    1. That’s a great take Darrol and it’s right in line with what we learned from Monica Guzman and Alan and Jamie. We can shape our future by finding out what is what’s important to our friends, peers and neighbors.

      1. Matt, yes and we need to get more engaged in the planning part of our future. All too often we wait until something is all ready for approval and if we don’t like it we get out the signs and pitchforks and do things to “stop” a plan. We can do better if we were all part of the planning process and worked for consensus along the way. Short of public engagement early and often, we will always have conflicts late in the process.

        The ECRT session can be a way to get engaged in our plan for the future. The Comprehensive Plan will be updated very soon. We have less than 20 months! Sounds like a long time but the update is a big deal and will take all of that time to do it right.

  3. By participating with other from all parts of Edmonds you will have the opportunity to shape the future discussion rather than just being surprised by what often is a process of short notice on issues and then we all get into the “wack a mole” mode.

    Sign up to help guide future discussions.

  4. All signed up for Zoom. I am interested in seeing this process in action. I hope residents of Edmonds know that MEN and Edmonds Beacon can be seen by just going on the internet. For me Facebook is fast and easy but not all have access or are interested in social media. Then so many more could see what is happening. Maybe more news reporting in addition to attending meetings such as this one I am now signed to view would be helpful. “wack a mole” is exhausting and well very boring too. I agree.
