What is Rethink Zoning?
Rethink Zoning is a multi-year effort to ensure that our development regulations support our efforts to recruit new businesses and ensure a wide range of housing for all price points.
Why is the City rethinking zoning?
The current version of the City’s zoning code was adopted in 1989. The world and Everett have changed significantly since that time. We can make zoning simpler and also protect community values by building on the success of Metro Everett that simplified the City’s approach to zoning. Since then, the City simplified the future land use map and updated the City’s sign code and critical area regulations.
