Eagles Club Looking To Return “Home” To Downtown Everett

May 31, 2021

Everett

The Everett Eagles want to come back to downtown Everett.

The Fraternal order of Eagles #13 is one of the oldest service clubs in Everett, Washington dating back to 1899. Over the years the club has had many locations including in the heart of downtown Everett on Hoyt, on Broadway at 37th and the last location at 12th and Broadway.

That location has been sold to Everett Community College and now the group would like to use the building at 2822 Hoyt to host their meetings and social activities. One issue is that Everett’s zoning code (EMC 19.05.060) prohibits private clubs on the ground floor of Pedestrian streets in the downtown area.

There is a workaround where the regulation can be modified by the City of Everett’s Planning Director. Currently public input is being sought on the proposal to allow the Eagles Club to move forward. According to the City comments about the proposal need to be submitted by close of business this Friday.

Written comments on the application are solicited and must be received at the Office of Community, Planning, and Economic Development, 2930 Wetmore Avenue, Suite 8-A, Everett, Washington 98201 by 5:00 PM, Friday, June 4, 2021. Any person may comment on the application and request a copy of the decision once made.

You can see the application documents on the City’s website here.
