Reminder: City schedules virtual public meeting March 7 for Main Street road work

The City of Edmonds has scheduled an online public meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 7 to discuss the Main Street Overlay Project between 6th and 9th Avenues.

According to a city press release, this event will provide an opportunity for community members to engage in discussions about the project’s scope of work, objectives, schedule and anticipated construction impacts.

The city, through its Complete Streets Ordinance, aims to improve safety and enhance mobility for all users of this street segment. The project will install new corner bulb-outs with ADA-compliant pedestrian ramps at the intersections of 7th and 8th Avenues.

Additionally, the street will undergo restriping following the completion of the pavement resurfacing. The striping will incorporate a new eastbound bicycle lane to accommodate cyclists traveling uphill without impacting existing parking.

  1. The city has scheduled this virtual meeting at 6:00pm on Mar. 7th. which is at approximately the same time as the Edmonds Civic Roundtable group is having their community presentation and discussion about the change in state housing law that the city will soon have to incorporate into it’s city codes (meeting Mar. 7th. at 5:30pm). It looks to me like maybe the city is having this virtual meeting about this particular “complete streets” project just to check off a box that claims community input on the subject was sought. If this conflict of meeting times was just a coincidence, I’d at least suggest the city reschedule the the virtual meeting on the Main Street project to another time. Or maybe even better yet, how about the city schedule an in person town hall type meeting for the entire neighborhood population around FAC to physically attend to make their desires for managing traffic in the neighborhood to be expressed in a real give and take actual (not virtual) meeting setting?

  2. Based on an email thread this morning among some of our loose knit neighborhood association members, my general ANTI this project view seems to be the minority viewpoint by far and the general consensus seems to be that it’s all a good thing. I’m a firm majority rules kind of guy so won’t push any sort of movement against what the city intends to do about the 8th. and Main intersection. I just hope everyone that’s so for it feels the same good way about it after the next Art Festival and general busy summer season for our neighborhood. I see myself increasingly using Bell Street for ingress and egress into our place, especially if pulling the boat or travel trailer.
