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, first consideration of applications has changed from May 15, 2019 to May 30, 2019. Applicants will be selected from each of seven different areas in the city. Preference will be given to those not currently serving on a city board or commission. Up to fifteen members and eight alternates will be selected.
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.
