Front Porch: Everett residents invited to help plan city’s future

Help plan city’s future

The city of Everett has scheduled a workshop Tuesday as part of its long-range planning efforts and is inviting the public to attend and share their vision for the city’s future.

The workshop is designed to solicit ideas about important community characteristics and assets and to discuss how and where future growth will occur.

The city is expecting 60,000 people to move into Everett over the next 20 years. Ideas brought forth at the meeting may be included in a state-mandated growth plan for 2035, which the city must complete by the middle of next year.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Evergreen Middle School, 7621 Beverly Lane, Everett.

Sustainable gardening: Marysville Parks and Recreation is offering a sustainable gardening workshop with gardening expert Linda Woolsey from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Jennings Park Barn, 6915 Armar Road.

Learn about maximizing a small yard, landscape and garden art, combining flowers with vegetables in the same bed; organic vegetables, small fruits, vines and fruit trees. The workshop is open to those 16 and older. Cost is $25.
