At Edmonds
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Edmonds has issued the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the following project.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of Edmonds has completed environmental review of the Highway 99 Subarea Plan Planned Action Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), prepared in accordance with the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). The proposal considered in this FEIS is a new subarea plan, along with supporting comprehensive plan amendments and supporting regulatory amendments intended to support increased economic vitality, promote new opportunities for housing and employment, and provide for enhanced multi-modal mobility throughout the Highway 99 (SR99) study area. 

The proposal would also designate the SR 99 study area analyzed in this FEIS as a Planned Action area. If so designated, further environmental review on future development within the designated Planned Action area would not be necessary for development proposals that are consistent with the adopted Planned Action ordinance.


PROJECT LOCATION: The Highway 99 Corridor study area extends approximately two miles along the alignment of SR 99, bounded by the King/Snohomish County boundary on the south and 210th Street SW on the north. To the east and west of SR 99, the study area follows an irregular boundary established by existing development patterns in the City of Edmonds and the boundaries of the adjoining cities of Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Snohomish County. The study area comprises approximately 335 acres in total.

FINAL EIS AVAILABILITY: The FEIS is available for review on the Highway 99 project website at  These materials are also available for viewing at the Planning Division, located on the second floor of Edmonds City Hall, 121 5th Ave N, Edmonds, WA 98020.

APPEAL: The adequacy of the FEIS may be appealed by filing a written appeal citing the specific reasons for appeal with the required appeal fee no later than August 18, 2017 by 4:00 PM.
