PSCA

Public Invited to Housing Workshop

A public workshop/open house on housing strategies will be held August 27, 7:00 pm, in the Edmonds City Hall Brackett Room (3rd floor) at 121 Fifth Avenue N.

The City is aiming to develop a housing strategy by 2019 to increase the supply of affordable housing for all income levels and to meet diverse housing needs.

“People in Edmonds deserve good housing choices,” said Mayor Dave Earling. “Some residents are struggling with how to stay in Edmonds or have their kids live in Edmonds. As our region grows, more people want to live here and without some new options, housing prices will keep going up. I hope people chime in on how the city can help responsibly steer the direction.”

bigstock american th of julyRule Allows Parade-Goers to Save Seats While Also Keeping Sidewalks Safe for Pedestrians

(Edmonds, WA) – With the popular Edmonds Fourth of July Parade just days away, the City of Edmonds and Edmonds Chamber of Commerce are reminding the community about the following items to ensure a safe and happy Fourth of July for all:

  • The placement of lawn chairs and other items along the parade route will be allowed after 6pm Tuesday evening, 7/3/18.
  • Please refrain from chaining or otherwise attaching chairs to each other and to stationary items such as trees, sign posts, etc. This policy is to allow parade-goers to stake out their viewing places somewhat in advance, as has been the tradition, but to also avoid the safety and access concerns of lengthy sidewalk obstructions well in advance of the Fourth.
  • After 6am on July 4th streets along the parade route will be closed to traffic by the Edmonds Police Department, so personal vehicle access to the route will not be possible until after the parade clears.  
  • Chairs and other items placed in the right-of-way along the parade route before 6pm Tuesday 7/3/18 will be removed by the Public Works Department. They may be retrieved during regular business hours at the Public Works Building at 7110 - 210th Street SW. Phone: 425-771-0235.
