Metro Everett Overview

The City of Everett, in partnership with a wide and diverse group of stakeholders, is starting a planning process that will prepare Everett’s Metropolitan Center for future public and private development and growth. "Metro Everett" is a diverse and large area, over one square mile, and includes

  • the downtown business district,
  • Everett station area,
  • portions of the Broadway corridor,
  • and surrounding commercial and residential areas.

Everett’s population is expected to grow at an unprecedented rate in the next twenty years based on existing city limits. And with previous direction from citizens and from Puget Sound Regional Council, a significant portion of the projected growth is expected to occur in the Metropolitan Center. This planning process will result in a subarea plan for the Metropolitan Center and will address population, housing and employment targets, policies and potential land-use regulations for the area.
