The City of Edmonds is working to develop a Housing Strategy in 2019. 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."
The Housing Strategy will consider housing needs, taking into account available data, and recommend actions the City can take to increase the supply of housing and meet diverse needs, including for homeless, seniors, and veterans.
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.
