Bike2Health Project - Bicycle Counts Continue

Bicycle Counts Continue
Edmonds is continuing to conduct bicycle counts to understand how many people currently ride bikes in the streets where the proposed bicycle routes / bike lanes will be added later this Fall. Counts will also be completed after construction in order to determine how the new routes affect ridership. These counts are occurring quarterly until Fall 2017. The bicycle counts are scheduled for June 27th through June 29th at the following locations:

·        76th Avenue W & Olympic View Drive
·        9th Avenue S & Walnut Street
·        76th Avenue W & 212th Street SW
·        80th Avenue W & 224th Street SW 

Urban Forest Management Plan - Survey Now Available

The City of Edmonds is working to develop an Urban Forest Management Plan that will primarily focus on managing trees on public properties and in public rights-of-way.  The plan will also consider some community-wide issues, for example, the community's total tree canopy, the role of trees in critical wildlife habitat corridors throughout the city and opportunities for public education.

Public input is welcome, so please tell us your thoughts by taking this SURVEY.

In this three week training, you’ll learn from expert presenters on why things can and cannot be recycled, where our recycling goes, backyard composting techniques, and how to reduce your waste overall; as well as have an opportunity to tour a local recycling center. Because this training will only be offered once in 2017 and seating is limited, there is an application process. The deadline to apply is Friday, July 7th. For more information, please contact Stephanie Leeper, Sustainable Community Stewards Coordinator, WSU Snohomish County Extension at s.leeper@wsu.edu or 425-357-6027.

Open House to Discuss Managing City’s Tree Cover

A public open house about managing the City’s trees will be held June 22, Thursday in the Brackett Room (3rd floor) of City Hall, 121 Fifth Avenue North, Edmonds.  The public can drop by anytime between 6:30 and 8:00 pm.  A presentation will be given at 7:00 pm.

“We want to share information and hear from people,” said Mayor Dave Earling, “about how the City’s urban forest— the trees and tree canopy—should be managed over the long term.  For example, do we need more trees in some places?  What kind?  Should all trees be saved, no matter what?” 

Development of an urban forest management plan for Edmonds is underway.  It follows up on discussion from two years ago of a draft tree code that would have affected the planting and cutting of trees on private property.

When the City Council determined to not adopt the draft tree code, the Council confirmed that it wanted to find the right balance for managing trees and to especially consider trees in the right of way and on public property.  An urban forest management could help do this.

Last year, a consulting firm, Davey Resource Group, was chosen to help develop an urban forest management plan for Edmonds.  The firm has been gathering information from Tree Board members and City staff.  Now broader public outreach is beginning.

The June 22 open house will show what’s been learned so far about the City’s tree canopy and managing trees in an urban environment.  Everyone is invited. 

The first and last parts of the open house will allow people to view displays and talk informally.  At 7:00 pm, a presentation will be given about the scope of the urban forest plan and next steps to develop it.  Questions and comments are welcome.
