The City of Edmonds is working to develop a Housing Strategy in 2018. This is based on an implementation action required by the City's Comprehensive Plan "for increasing the supply of affordable housing and meeting diverse needs."
While originally the Housing Strategy was scheduled to be implemented in 2019, it is now scheduled for 2018.
The strategy is intended to identify various actions the City can take to increase housing supply for a broad range of income levels and/or to meet special needs.
The Mayor appointed a task force to help make recommendations that will be proposed in the strategy.
The City boards and commissions, as well as the public are encouraged to weigh in. Ultimately, the Housing Strategy will be considered for adoption by the City Council.
