City Council to discuss displacement ordinance, south Lynnwood neighborhood plan at Oct. 21 meeting

The Lynnwood City Council at its Oct. 21 work session will continue its discussion regarding a displaced low-income tenant ordinance.

At the council’s Oct. 14 business meeting, Councilmember George Hurst proposed forming an ad hoc task group to draft an ordinance to help displaced low-income residents cover the costs of moving. Before Hurst proposed the motion, the council heard testimony from Whispering Pines residents in favor of the ordinance, which would help them find new places to live as they face a September 2021 eviction date for the building to undergo renovations.

The council will also receive its first briefing on Phase II of the South Lynnwood Neighborhood Plan. Previous work in South Lynnwood, current status and upcoming next steps will be discussed. Phase II of the project is currently underway with anticipated adoption by the council in late 2020.

Other agenda items include a discussion regarding a draft resolution that would amend the city’s 2019 budget calendar and updates from council liaisons to city boards and commissions.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Lynnwood City Hall Council Chambers, 19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood. You can see the complete agenda here.
