Planning Board meeting to offer first look at waterfront issues

Frequent participants in city planning will realize that the SMP required that our city marsh be included in our discussions with our waterfront
Nov 09, 2012

The next Planning Board meeting on Nov. 14 will potentially feature a triple header of public hearings.

Citizens of Edmonds are invited to comment on the Shoreline Management Program, the Westgate plan and (if time allows) Street Vacations.

The Shoreline Management Program is the state mandated process that requires that the City of Edmonds outline the way the city interacts with its shoreline with the Puget Sound.

Frequent participants in city planning will realize that the SMP required that our city marsh be included in our discussions with our waterfront, so a new shoreline designation that affects the proposed redevelopment of Harbor Square has been part of that discussion.  The Westgate Plan brings into focus the Form based code discussions that open up a new way to manage future re-development in Edmonds.

Specific areas for discussion have included potential mixed uses of the properties on all four parcels surrounding the Hwy 104 / 100th Ave W intersection, setbacks from the roads and traffic implications.

Your input will help the Planning Board in its deliberations and its recommendations to the City Council.
