Everett: Commission focuses on growth
The city of Everett has scheduled a public workshop this month to explore the community's challenge in making room for more homes and businesses despite a shrinking supply of undeveloped land.
The Everett Planning Commission plans to conduct the workshop starting at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 15 in the Planning Hearing Room on the eighth floor of the Wall Street Building, 2930 Wetmore Ave.
According to the city, regional growth plans direct more people and businesses to Everett, in part to capitalize on investments made in fast and frequent high-capacity service.
The workshop's purpose is to provide an overview of planning work that needs to be completed and to call attention to key issues, including urban service levels, housing choices and transportation options. The work will be folded into the city's planned 2015 growth management plan update.
The public is encouraged to attend and comment.
