June 2024 Meeting Notes

Quick notes:

One guest included Laura from Everett Parks to talk about the planned updates to the play equipment at Drew Nielsen Park. There will be an afternoon in the park on July 17 from 3:30-4:30pm to get feedback and ideas from people there. Otherwise, there is an online survey. QR codes are at the park (and I’ll post here once I find it.)

We also had a quick update about the recently submitted change to the zoning for the location of the former Waits Motel now owned by the City of Everett. It will be zoned Neighborhood Business, which also allows for housing. The hope is for a developer to replace the 25 units of the former motel with 16 townhomes.

Finally, Ryan Spivey with Everett Performance Omnium came by to talk about the upcoming bike race being held in Everett from June 28-30, 2024. The Saturday races will be held in Northwest Neighborhood.

Elections were postponed until October 2024. Holly James remains Chair, Kari Quaas remains Treasurer, and Tim Knopf remains Council of Neighborhoods rep, along with alternative Bridget Cook.
