Mayor's Corner

Happy New Year! 2019 will be a year of exciting growth for Everett. I’m especially looking forward to hopping on a flight out of Paine Field, staying at the new Hotel Indigo at the Port’s Waterfront Place, and cheering on the Seattle Storm at Angel of the Winds Arena.

On Jan. 31 I will be giving my State of the City address, which will include a summary of key accomplishments this past year in areas including economic development, public safety and the City’s budget. I’ll also lay out my vision for 2019 and beyond, describing specific initiatives that will bring that vision to life. You can watch the State of the City live on my Facebook page at 8 a.m. on the 31st or view it after the event online.

N Broadway bus stops get a makeover

The N Broadway Transit Improvement Project is moving along, improving bus stops along Broadway between 34th St. and 7th St. This project adds a bus bulb to each of the bus stops within the corridor, allowing buses to stop in the lane of travel (right-hand lane) to assist with boarding and de-boarding passengers. Everett Transit is also adding new amenities to most bus stops, such as shelters, benches, trash cans and bike racks, and working with the City’s Cultural Arts Department to improve visibility and aesthetics at these stops. Stay up-to-date on this project by signing up to receive email or text alerts.

2018 Wendt & Mayor's Arts Awards

Mayor Cassie Franklin will recognize the recipients of the 2018 Mayor’s Arts Awards and the Richard Wendt Award of Excellence at the Everett Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Feb. 12. In recognition of Everett’s ever-growing arts scene, the Cultural Arts Commission created the Mayor’s Arts Awards to honor art educators, artists in the community, arts organizations, and emerging artists, all who have made an impact on the Everett arts community. This is also the 26th year of the Richard Wendt Award of Excellence, a lifetime achievement award given to individuals whose strong support of the arts has been ongoing through philanthropic and volunteer service.

Take a stroll to Everett’s Waterfront

A new pedestrian crossing at Alverson Blvd. and West Marine View Dr. connects people to the Waterfront District and offers pedestrians and bicyclists a safer and easier way to access the area via the Milltown Trail. As part of a continuation of efforts to improve connectivity and safety for community members, this crossing helps connect people to the city’s greatest assets – Everett’s beautiful waterfront! Learn about additional improvements scheduled for 2019.
