The vision for Evergreen Way, then is to become a “linear community” that provides easy access to all that is needed for an enjoyable and connected lifestyle. That phrase comes directly from the draft of the City of Everett’s Evergreen Way Revitalization Plan. But what does that mean? You’ll get a chance to find out, on Tuesday September 20th, as the Everett Planning Commission holds a public workshop on the future of Evergreen Way. It’s set for 6:30pm in the 8th Floor hearing room of the Wall Street Building on Wetmore in downtown Everett. The plan covers the future of the former highway 99 from 41st Street where Rucker turns into Evergreen Way, south to Gibson Road (just south of Airport Road). Proposed plans call for increased high density housing located near the Swift Transit bus stops. It also proposes wider sidewalks and more pedestrian friendly access to those bus stops along with improved bicycle access. You can see a good overview of the plan in the briefing packet provided to the Everett City Council last week. The plan does not call for light rail down Evergreen Way or eliminating the two-way left turn lane.
