Front Porch: Learn about proposed Riverfront changes

Riverfront changes
The Everett Planning Commission on Tuesday is to consider changes to building rules that Polygon Northwest requested regarding the Riverfront redevelopment site. A public hearing is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. in the eighth-floor hearing room of the Wall Street Building, 2930 Wetmore Ave., Everett.
Polygon's plans call for about 230 homes, fewer than the maximum 650 homes that city regulations would allow on the former Simpson Paper Co. mill property at the south end of the Riverfront. The changes under review involve lot widths, driveways and park space.

New Snohomish County councilmen seated: Newly elected Snohomish County Councilmen Ken Klein and Terry Ryan took the oath of office Monday. Klein, a Republican from Arlington, now occupies John Koster's former seat. Ryan, a Democrat from Mill Creek, represents Dave Gossett's former area.
The county lawmakers selected third-term Councilman Dave Somers of Monroe as this year's chairman and Councilman Brian Sullivan of Mukilteo as vice chairman. Somers takes over from Councilwoman Stephanie Wright, who led the council last year.
