Architectural Design Board


The ADB advises and makes recommendations to the Mayor, City Council, Planning Board, and the planning department on city planning and design-related issues. The ADB:

  • Studies and prepares recommendations regarding design guidelines and objectives, including specific design districts that are part of the comprehensive plan;
  • Reviews and studies land use within the city of Edmonds from a design standpoint;
  • Establishes goals, objectives, and policies for design districts;
  • Recommends legislation to implement the design objectives of the comprehensive plan and the goals, objectives, and policies for each established design district.

Board members are appointed by the mayor with Council confirmation. Terms are for four years, with a two-term limit. Terms less than two years are not considered full terms. Edmonds residency is required for the two layperson positions. The positions of architect, builder, landscape architect, and planner require specific skills and/or background described in the position title; they do not require Edmonds residency.
