At the direction of Mayor Stephanson, the City has convened a task force of community members, business owners and service providers to focus on street-level social issues in Everett's urban cores and develop recommendations that could be implemented by the community.
Task force mission: In order to foster a vibrant and healthy community, the task force will seek to better understand the street-level social issues in Everett’s commercial-core areas and identify potential short- and long-term actions for the community to address those issues.
All task force meetings are open to the public, and we encourage interested community members to attend. You can view past meetings on the Everett Channel.
Meetings will be held every other Thursday, from 3-6 p.m., at the Weyerhaeuser Room at Everett Station, 3201 Smith Avenue: July 24, Aug. 7, Aug. 21, Sept. 4, Sept. 18, Oct. 2, Oct. 16, Oct. 30, Nov. 13. Meeting agendas and materials are available online.
