The Citizens’ Housing Commission has been established by the Edmonds City Council via a resolution adopted on April 16, 2019. The Commission’s mission is to:

Develop, for Council consideration, diverse housing policy options designed to expand the range of housing (including rental and owned) available in Edmonds — irrespective of age, gender, race religious affiliation, physical disability, or sexual orientation.

Any City of Edmonds resident may apply by submitting a completed application. Due to some delays in postal delivery and other schedule concerns, first consideration of applications is now set at June 21, 2019. Anyone interested is encouraged to apply. Applicants will be selected from each of seven different areas in the city. Up to fifteen members and eight alternates will be selected. See “Applications” information for details.



The Citizens’ Housing Commission will meet at least once a month at a regular time.  Based on known facility schedules, the regular meetings will most likely be on a Thursday night but the Commission can decide its preference later.  Other public events, including open houses, will be held too.  The Commission’s work is to be completed by December 31, 2020.
