Everett May Delay Development of Kimberly-Clark Site Another 6 Months
What’s the best use of this property to replace the 750 jobs lost when the plant closed?
The Everett Planning Commission will hold a meeting Tuesday night to consider extending the moratorium on development at the Kimberly-Clark site on the Everett Waterfront. The public hearing will focus on a six month extension of the moratorium and a public workshop to review alternative land use and public access scenarios that have been prepared by the City’s consultant. Everett Public Works Director Allan Giffen says the consultant has identified a number of potential uses. “He will talk about the number of jobs, type of jobs, tax revenue and spin-off development nearby,” said Giffen. If the Planning Commission decides to extend the moratorium another six months, then that decision would have to be approved by Everett City Council. They’re expected to consider that on July 25th.
The public is welcome to attend and provide comments to the Planning Commission. The meeting is 6:30pm Tuesday night in the 4th floor Weyerhauser Room at Everett Station, 3201 Smith Street.
