City council gives green light for development of the park district

The Everett Housing Authority received the green light to develop its property in the Delta district at yesterday’s city council meeting.

In particular, the street holidays, an ordinance on the park district, a planned development and a development agreement were unanimously approved by the city council with a “yes” vote.

In the Delta District, expect 12-story buildings with underground parking and commercial space, as well as permitted parking in the area.

Residents and the City Council seemed very pleased with the development of the project, which meets the needs and desires of current residents. This project is a great first step toward solving Everett’s housing crisis.

Mary Fosse, who can observe this development from her kitchen window, said the following:

“I think this was a wonderful example… I really hope that my colleagues see all the effort, conversations and collaboration and reward this kind of participation by supporting this project, because this was a great achievement.”

Council President Don Schwab had the following message for the Everett Housing Authority:

“You’ve done a great job organizing. If this works, and I believe it will, you’re going to make a name for yourself. You’re going to make a name for Everett. This is an incredible opportunity.”
