After more than two years of review, input and discussion, the Everett Planning Commission will have a public hearing on the set of comprehensive plan and code amendments this coming Tuesday, August 18th at 6:30 p.m.
No action is requested of the Planning Commission at the August 18th hearing. This is the opportunity for the public to provide their input. The Planning Commission is scheduled to forward their recommendations to the City Council on September 8th. Additional opportunity to submit written comment to the Planning Commission and City Council is available after the August 18th hearing.
