There is a public hearing scheduled for April 7th in front of the Everett Planning Commission over a plan to change zoning along a portion of Rucker and Evergreen Way to allow apartments and commercial development.

According to a public notice issued by the City of Everett on Thursday, the plan asks for a rezone of about two and a half acres just to the south of the Totem Family Diner. Here’s what the public notice described:

Amend the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Map from Single Family to Multifamily, and the zoning designation from R‐1 Single Family Low Density to R‐5 Multiple Family High Density for the Hope Covenant Church Site. The adjacent Schmidt parcels are proposed to amend the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Map from Single Family to Commercial Mixed‐Use and the zoning designation from R‐1 Single Family Low Density to E‐1 Evergreen Way.

According to documents submitted to the City of Everett planning department the purpose for the request is to convert the existing residential lots between Rucker and Evergreen Way to higher density residential zoning for the parcels owned by the Hope Covenant Church and mixed use commercial for the properties north of the church. No immediate plans are proposed but an apartment building potentially with some mixed commercial use on the first floor is envisioned for the church property. The dental clinic to the north may also be expanded.
