Planning department seeks community feedback on ‘Everyone’s Edmonds’ Aug. 16-Sept. 9

Enjoy Popsicles in the Park events as part of the City of Edmonds’ outreach on its 2024 Comprehensive Plan update.

The City of Edmonds invites residents to help plan how the city grows over the next 20 years, with a series of events scheduled Aug. 16-Sept. 9.

By 2044, Edmonds is projected to add approximately 13,000 residents and require 9,000 new housing units and 3,000 new jobs. As part of the Everyone’s Edmonds Comprehensive Plan Update, the city is seeking community feedback through Sept. 10 on topics to address in the plan and the corresponding Environmental Impact Statement.

Topics inviting feedback include the following: meeting the city’s future housing needs, protecting natural resources, building out the city’s transportation network, and fostering a vibrant economy. Community members are encouraged to provide specific comments and can also submit questions as part of the project’s “Ask a Planner” campaign.

Comments and questions can be emailed to; mailed to City of Edmonds, Attn: Comprehensive Plan Update, 121 5th Ave. N., Edmonds, WA 98020; or submitted via the online comments portal.

The city will be holding several pop-up events in neighborhoods throughout Edmonds to gather community feedback, including a Wednesday afternoon “Popsicles in the Park” series starting Wednesday, Aug. 16. The city describes these as fun, in-person events where the public can leave a comment, get a popsicle and see the “Everyone’s Edmonds-mobile” — a city car branded with project information. Staff will also attend various community events through the summer.
