Preparing for the Future
To meet the region's housing and jobs needs, the City of Everett must plan for another 89,000 jobs and 87,000 residents by 2050, with approximately 74% of new residents living near high-capacity transit and 81% of new workers working near it.
As Everett Station is already the hub of Snohomish County transit and the future terminus of Sound Transit Link Light Rail, our neighborhood holds both a promise and responsibility to the city for equitable and sustainable development.
ESDA leads collaborative stakeholder engagement efforts to ensure we as a neighborhood organization and the City of Everett are prepared to build a prosperous, sustainable, and equitable community while maintaining what's already great about our neighborhood.
