Learn about updated Metro Everett plan at April 25 open house

Metro Everett

EVERETT – For the past two years, City planners have engaged the community in discussing new growth plans for the city’s urban center, or “Metro Everett.”

“I want to thank all of the community members who have helped craft our recommendations,” says Allan Giffen, Everett’s Planning Director. “In particular, our planning commissioners have spent numerous meetings reviewing and commenting on early drafts. Their input has been immeasurable.”

Now the City wants to get input from residents, property owners and businesses on proposed new zoning and land-use regulations, as well as new requirements for off-street parking city-wide.

“There are significant changes proposed in how we guide growth in the city’s urban center, and we want to make sure people are informed and have an opportunity to weigh in on these changes,” said Giffen.

The community is invited to review the plan and provide comments at an open house from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Weyerhaeuser Room at Everett Station. The City’s planning team will be on hand to review and answer questions about proposed new zoning, building height and development standards for Metro Everett, and changes to off-street parking requirements city-wide.

More information on the draft plans and development regulations is available on the City website at
