Edmonds City Council President announces Citizens’ Housing Commission assignments

Edmonds City Council President Adrienne Fraley-Monillas announced Monday the Councilmember assignments for the newly-formed Citizens’ Housing Commission. The Citizens’ Housing Commission was created at the direction of the City Council on April 16, 2019 by Resolution # 1428 to “Develop, for Council consideration, diverse housing policy options designed to expand the range of housing (including rental and owned) available in Edmonds — irrespective of age, gender, race religious affiliation, physical disability, or sexual orientation.”

Each Councilmember is assigned a specific zone of the City; that Councilmember will conduct interviews of Housing Commission applicants who have applied to serve the Commission until its close on December 31, 2020. The commission will meet once a month in addition to Open Houses and Public Meetings. Zone 1 will be represented by Kristiana Johnson; Zone 2 will be represented by Dave Teitzel; Zone 3 will be represented by Adrienne Fraley-Monillas; Zone 4 will be represented by Mike Nelson; Zone 5 will be represented by Tom Mesaros; Zone 6 will be represented by Diane Buckshnis and Zone 7 will represented by Neil Tibbott. “I look forward to a new and exciting start for the Citizens’ Housing Commission,” Fraley-Monillas said Monday.

Senior Center Parking Lot to Close the Week of June 24

Parking lot will remain closed throughout construction of the new Waterfront Center

The Senior Center parking lot will officially be taken offline the week of June 24, 2019.

Details of the project can be found at: http://edmondssc.org/ewc/.

People are encouraged to park in the lot to the South of the Senior Center on the corner of W Dayton St. and Railroad Ave, near the entrance to Olympic Beach.

City Council Extends Housing Commission Application Timeline

June 21 is the new date for Citizens’ Housing Commission applications to be considered by the City Council. The Council approved the longer timeline to ensure more people had time to apply.

Currently, 124 applications have been submitted for 15 Commissioner positions and 8 alternates.

Applications are organized by area into seven “zones” with roughly equal populations. Each zone will have two Commissioners and one alternate appointed by a City Council member. The Mayor will make an appointment of one Commissioner and one alternate from the remaining applications. The “zones” system is intended to increase citywide input on housing policies.

HousingStrategy Map CensusZone 20190605 01

So far, each of the seven zones has at least ten applicants. (See map for the number of applicants by zone.)
All interested residents are encouraged to apply. More information is on the City’s website: https://www.citizenshousingcommission.org/.

The Housing Commission was authorized this spring by the City Council to get broad input on policy ideas for expanding the range of housing available in Edmonds.

Commissioners will have meetings at least once a month and will sponsor other events around the city to share information and hear from the public. By the end of 2020, the Housing Commission's recommendations are due to the City Council.

"Trees for Small Spaces" brochure issued by Citizens' Tree Board

 “Trees for Small Spaces”, a new brochure by the City of Edmonds Tree Board, is now available to the public.

The brochure, based on the concept of “the right tree in the right space”, has illustrations of attractive trees that grow well in small spaces and are suitable to our climate. For each tree variety, information is given about ultimate height, as well as water and light requirements.

The printed brochure is free and can be picked-up at the Green Resource Center, located on the 2nd Floor of Edmonds City Hall, and at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St., Edmonds.

It can be accessed online (or by going to the Resources tab on the City of Edmonds’ Tree Board webpage).

Information from the brochure will be the basis for a free community classroom event about planting and tree care at the Francis Anderson Center from 10 to noon on October 12th. The next issue of Craze will have more details about this event.

The Edmonds Tree Board is a seven-member volunteer board appointed by the City Council. It also has one alternate member, a student representative, and one City Council member liaison. The Tree Board is active in tree planting activities and providing education about trees.

 One of the Board’s newest members, Suzanne Juergensen, has been credited as the primary author of the “Trees for Small Spaces” brochure. Previously, the Tree Board created a brochure called “Before You Grab that Chainsaw…”, featuring alternatives to entirely cutting down a tree.
