Climate Goals Open House Set for January 17

Climate Goals Open House Set for January 17

A Climate Goals open house will be held Thursday, January 17, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, in the Brackett Room of Edmonds City Hall (3rd floor), 121 Fifth Avenue N.

The open house will have displays on greenhouse gases and other information on view for the public. At 7:00 pm, City representatives will give a presentation about key climate findings and possible next steps.

The City began a Climate Goals project last year, based on a resolution adopted by the City Council. The project includes developing a greenhouse gas inventory for Edmonds, identifying targets for reducing greenhouse gases, and proposing ways to meet the targets. The biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions is the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, gasoline, and natural gas.

Studies have shown that greenhouse gas emissions are a key factor in climate warming. Even if climate change is held to only a 2˚ C. maximum increase by 2100, that still means huge impacts, here and globally. For example, according to a recent study, ocean acidity would increase by 24%.   Yet, even meeting the 2˚ goal will be difficult if trends don’t change dramatically.

The Climate Goals project recognizes that Edmonds alone cannot change the trends but cities together can make a difference.

A consultant team is helping with the project, aided by elected officials, City staff, and the citizen-based Climate Protection Committee. More detailed project information will soon be posted on the City’s website.

This is not the City’s first work on climate change issues. In 2010, the City adopted a Climate Action Plan. Other approaches included the New Energy Cities Action Plan in 2011, and various activities, such as the “Taming Bigfoot” community exercise last year.

Mayor Offers Response to White Nationalist Flyers

Flyers Distributed in Meadowdale & Seaview Neighborhoods

Edmonds, WA) - In response to the distribution of flyers from a white nationalist group known as Patriot Front to homes in the Meadowdale and Seaview neighborhoods of Edmonds, as well as in Seattle, Tacoma and Bellevue, Mayor Dave Earling has posted the following response on the City’s Facebook page:

“As your Mayor, in response to the distribution of white nationalist flyers to homes in parts of our city this past weekend (as well as elsewhere in the region), I must say that the messaging promoted by those flyers is totally inappropriate in our community. Edmonds is an inclusive and welcoming community, and messages of intolerance, supremacy, and exclusion are not acceptable in our city. We join other nearby communities in their serious concern over this behavior. Please know that the Edmonds Police Department is monitoring the situation for any potential escalation or associated illegal activity. In the meantime, I wish to convey the City’s sincerest conviction that Edmonds is a community that embraces inclusion, diversity and equity for all our residents, visitors and businesses.”

Keep People and Pets Safe by Keeping Wild Coyotes Wild

By Jennifer Leach, Environmental Education & Sustainability Coordinator
Edmonds Department of Parks, Recreation, and Culture
 

coyotesCoyotes become more visible in the fall and winter as young animals search for new territories and vegetative cover becomes less dense. These shy predators make excellent neighbors by keeping rodent populations like rats and mice in check, and are a valuable part of a healthy ecosystem.

Coyotes are wary of people, and avoid us whenever possible. However, in urban areas, people may unintentionally invite coyotes into the human environment by leaving unsecured pet food, garbage or compost outside. Similarly, bird feeders can attract rodents that in turn lure coyotes into the yard where they may also prey on unattended pets. When coyotes lose their fear of people, they can become unpredictable and pose an elevated safety risk.

You can keep a healthy separation between the human environment and the coyotes’ environment by following a few simple steps.

·         Never feed coyotes.
·         Do not leave children unattended.
·         Keep cats and dogs in a secured area or on a leash at all times.
·         Do not leave pet food (or any food) outside.
·         Make sure your garbage cans and compost bins have tight-fitting lids.
·         Keep the area under and around bird feeders clean and free of food.

If you encounter a coyote, pick up your pets and/or small children immediately. Do not run away or turn your back. Instead, you’ll want to appear big and loud, making lots of noise by shouting or clapping to scare it away. If the coyote looks weak or sick, call animal control at (425) 775-3000. If the coyote is acting aggressive towards you, call 911.

For more information on how to co-exist with coyotes and other wildlife, visit the WDFW Living with Wildlife webpages at https://wdfw.wa.gov/living/

citizen group to advise city department on housing strategy

 

(Edmonds - WA) A small citizen group has been asked to advise the Edmonds Development Services Department on issues and process for re-working the draft housing strategy. The group had an introductory meeting on November 8. The next meeting date is being scheduled now, but will likely be November 15 or 29 at 6:30 pm in the Brackett Room of Edmonds City Hall. It will be open to the public.

“I’ve asked a few community residents with different perspectives to provide me advice for developing the next draft housing strategy,” said Shane Hope, the City’s Development Services Director. “This not a formal appointed group but they are solid local residents and can be a great source of ideas and also a sounding board moving forward. Of course, we want lots of other public input too.”

She noted that more types of community meetings and events will follow. “We care about all neighborhoods and want to find places not only in the Bowl but elsewhere to have public meetings. Ideas are welcome. “

Actual milestones and schedules for the City’s re-draft work are still being planned. More Information, including the advisory group’s next meeting date, will be posted on the City’s housing website: https://www.edmondshousingstrategy.org/.

The website also has a new section for questions and answers. City staff plan to update this section as frequently as possible.

Members named to the department’s advisory group all live in town and have each been local residents from 4-60 years.  

They are: Treg Camper, Alicia Crank, Lindsey Crawford, Brian Goodnight, Pat McDevitt, Dave Teitzel, Bob Throndsen, Rob Van Tassel, and Diana White. Of the members, Dave Teitzel also serves on the City Council. Rob Van Tassel is the only member who previously was on the Housing Strategy Task Force that made recommendations for the first draft housing strategy.

Please Wait Until After 6pm on July 3rd to Put Out Chairs for 4th of July Parade

bigstock american th of julyRule Allows Parade-Goers to Save Seats While Also Keeping Sidewalks Safe for Pedestrians

(Edmonds, WA) – With the popular Edmonds Fourth of July Parade just days away, the City of Edmonds and Edmonds Chamber of Commerce are reminding the community about the following items to ensure a safe and happy Fourth of July for all:

  • The placement of lawn chairs and other items along the parade route will be allowed after 6pm Tuesday evening, 7/3/18.
  • Please refrain from chaining or otherwise attaching chairs to each other and to stationary items such as trees, sign posts, etc. This policy is to allow parade-goers to stake out their viewing places somewhat in advance, as has been the tradition, but to also avoid the safety and access concerns of lengthy sidewalk obstructions well in advance of the Fourth.
  • After 6am on July 4th streets along the parade route will be closed to traffic by the Edmonds Police Department, so personal vehicle access to the route will not be possible until after the parade clears.  
  • Chairs and other items placed in the right-of-way along the parade route before 6pm Tuesday 7/3/18 will be removed by the Public Works Department. They may be retrieved during regular business hours at the Public Works Building at 7110 - 210th Street SW. Phone: 425-771-0235.
