Respondents noted that, when looking for a place to live, the five most important factors are Neighborhood safety (72%), Price/rent (49%), Sense of community (48%), Walkability (44%) and Potential to stay in the home for a long time (44%).
Other responses from the majority of survey-takers indicate:

 

ð      Lack of affordable housing in Edmonds
ð      Lack of opportunities for seniors to age in place
ð      Possible support for allowing detached accessory dwellings, with appropriate standards
ð      Lack of housing options for people with disabilities
ð      Importance of preserving small-town character of Edmonds

       https://www.citizenshousingcommission.org/.

 

Information came from 907 respondents (equal to a little over 2% of the City’s population). While such online surveys are not statistically valid, they are considered to be useful tools for getting a sense of opinions.

 

The Citizens’ Housing Commission was established by the Edmonds City Council in 2019 to make recommendations for the Council’s consideration about non-discriminatory policies to expand the range of housing over time. Commission recommendations are due by the end of 2020. Recommendations are advisory; the City Council will decide on any actions, after considering public input and other information.

Civic Park is an eight-acre park in the heart of downtown Edmonds that straddles the boundary between residences, civic amenities and the downtown commercial district. It is located within the recently designated State Certified Edmonds Creative District. The site is a former school district track and field that has been used for community recreation for over 50 years. Recently acquired by the City, an extensive public master planning process was implemented to design an aesthetic and more inclusive downtown park. The planned development of Civic Park in 2020-21 embraces this downtown park’s potential to contribute to a sense of community identity and civic pride while promoting active, healthy lifestyles, energizing the local economy, and bolstering the city’s growing reputation as a destination on Puget Sound. The artwork will serve as a welcoming feature to this primary entry point to the park.
