Walkways coming to Meadowdale
The Edmonds City Council has approved $950,000 to build walkways on 76th Avenue W. and 75th Avenue W. in the Meadowdale area next year.
When completed, the walkway will provide safer passage between Meadowdale Beach Road and Snohomish County Park.
An additional $270,000 was approved for a walkway along 164th Street SW in the same area. If the city fails to get grant funding for the 164th Street SW project, the city will put up the funds.
The city funds come from a rededication of a portion of its real estate excise tax, which normally is reserved only for parks.
