Aug 09, 2018

The City of Edmonds has won a 2018 VISION 2040 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council for its Highway 99 Subarea Plan. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.

The award was presented at the Edmonds City Council meeting Aug. 7.

"Edmonds has envisioned a transit supportive urban district with affordable housing with this plan," said Josh Brown, executive director of PSRC, "and backed it up with changes to regulations and planned action."

The Edmonds Highway 99 Subarea Plan seeks to increase housing and jobs along SR 99 and identifies transportation improvements to support these changes.

VISION 2040 is the region's growth management, economic and transportation strategy, designed to meet the needs of the 5 million people expected to be living in the region in 2040.

The Puget Sound Regional Council develops policies and coordinates decisions about regional growth, transportation and economic development planning within Snohomish King, Pierce, and Kitsap counties.

The council is composed of over 80 entities, including all four counties, cities and towns, ports, state and local transportation agencies and tribal governments within the region.
