The failed re-development of the Everett Marina, Kimberly-Clark closing and demolishing the plant, an extended rail spur on the south end. Given what’s happened in the recent past, the Mayor and Everett City Council want to know what Everett citizens would like to see in the future on Everett’s Central Waterfront. A special meeting of the Everett City Council will be held in conjunction with an open house and a chance for people to make suggestions on the future of the Central Waterfront area. The public open house will begin at 4:00 pm, where citizens can learn more about the Re-Use and Redevelopment planning process, view maps and photos, ask questions of City staff, and provide written comments that will be considered during the planning process.  The special City Council meeting will follow at 6:30pm. Both happen (tomorrow), Tuesday night April 3rd, at the Weyerhaeuser Room, 4th floor, located at Everett Station, 3201 Smith Street, Everett WA 98201.

Everett Mayor Ray Stephenson has said the city only has one chance to get this right and they want as much citizen involvement as possible. Though the Kimberly-Clark plant will soon be demolished and the property put up for sale, back on February 15th, the city council passed a six month moratorium on issuing any development permits for the area. By the way, the special meeting does not replace the regular Wednesday night Everett City Council meeting and the City Council will take no final action at this Special Meeting. So hey, come give your ideas on how Everett’s waterfront of the future should look like.
