The Everett City Council held a public hearing on the Rethink Zoning Ordinances October 14th. Council members will now spend additional time reviewing the proposal and public input before considering action on November 4th.
Over the past two months, the city's land use permitting staff have been getting familiar with the draft code to ensure that the transition goes smoothly. We have tested the code amendments against real projects and have identified a series of corrections that are helpful for implementation of the code and to address issues of consistency. We have sent those corrections to City Council, asking that they include them in their action being considered on November 4th. You can read this memo and the corrections at this link. https://everettwa.gov/DocumentCenter/View/26542/Memo_CC_Rethink-10-15-20
We have also updated our response to public comments. You can view the responses at this link: https://everettwa.gov/DocumentCenter/View/25953/RESPONSE-TO-PUBLIC-COMMENTS-10-15-20..
