Metro Everett

“Metro Everett” is over one square mile, and includes the downtown business district, Everett station area, portions of the Broadway corridor, and surrounding commercial and residential areas.

The public hearings on the Metro Everett Plan are now over and more in-depth study is underway as things head to a decision on August 29th.

The City of Everett planning staff has created options and amendments for council members to consider and the city communications department has made those and other materials available for the public to review.

Here’s a memo with the links to help you find the latest.

The City Council finished its third preliminary hearing on the Metro Everett Plan and off-street parking changes. The Council will now consider amendments to the drafts prior to a final public hearing set for August 29th at 6:30 p.m.

The focus of the first three preliminary hearings were on 1) historic overlays and the Norton-Grand neighborhood; 2) clinics and social services in Metro Everett; and 3) off-street parking (city-wide) and zoning boundary changes.

Planning staff have prepared a package of amendments to the Metro Everett Plan and off-street parking changes based on public input, input from City Council members, and consultation with City Administration. The package of amendments can be read by clicking on this link here.

More detailed response, including additional height and building analysis along Rucker and Grand, can be found by clicking on this link here.

The City Council will be asked to provide direction for preparation of the ordinance package that will be subject to the public hearing on August 29th at 6:30 p.m. This meeting of the City Council will occur on August 22nd at 12:30 p.m. All meetings of the City Council are open to the public.
