Community Transit CEO Emmett Heath is scheduled to make a presentation to the Lynnwood City Council at Wednesday’s work session.

Heath was appointed CEO of Community Transit last March. Community Transit likely will be submitting a ballot measure in the fall election that will raise sales taxes by .3 percent to fund various transportation initiatives.

The Council also will be hearing from representatives of the Historic Flight Foundation on the proposed development of an Historic Aviation Campus at the Snohomish County Airport, Paine Field. The foundation is seeking support from the City.

The Council will be considering the potential reappointment of two members of the Lynnwood Public Facilities District Board of Directors. The current terms for Boardmember George Sherwin, Position No. 2, and Boardmember Lynn Melby, Position No. 3, expire in October 2015. Both Sherwin and Melby have expressed their desire to be reappointed, and the Lynnwood Public Facilities District supports their requests. The City Council is required to decide whether to initiate a formal recruitment process or schedule the re-appointment of the existing boardmembers.

City staff will be briefing the Council on work related to strategic planning and the City’s vision. Staff will provide an overview of work accomplished to date; work planned during 2015-16; and work to be achieved in subsequent years. The Council previously authorized the creation of the strategic planner position, which was filled by staff reassignment and no increase in personnel.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Lynnwood Civic Center, Council Chambers, 19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood.
