The City of Everett will hold four community meetings in April to provide a chance for residents to learn about City Council representation and election
by district, and to discuss these topics with other community members.

Everett City Council members are currently elected by all voters within Everett and represent the whole city. In some communities, councilmembers are
elected by voters within a geographical area of the city, known as a district or ward. The councilmember represents people from that area.

The City is conducting a public process for the evaluation of council districts with the possibility of putting forward a council districting measure
in the November 2018 general election. Residents are invited to learn about districting and related laws, as well as Everett’s population and demographic
information. Attendees will also participate in facilitated discussions to learn and share ideas with other community members.

All are welcome to attend one of the upcoming meetings:

  • Tuesday, April 17, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Everett Public Schools Community Resource Center board room A and B (3900 Broadway Ave)
  • Thursday, April 19, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Evergreen Middle School cafeteria (7621 Beverly Ln)
  • Wednesday, April 25, 3 to 4:30 p.m., Everett Housing Authority Bakerview Apartments meeting room (2605 15th St)
  • Monday, April 30, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Evergreen Middle School cafeteria (7621 Beverly Ln)

 

For interpretation assistance, please contact Wendy McClure at least 72 hours prior to the event: wmcclure@everettwa.gov.
