Update the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan

There is not a video for this idea.

Background: The City has a Comprehensive Plan that includes goals, policies, maps, and other information.  In the Comprehensive Plan, “Transportation” is one of the elements.  The City uses this element to address transportation needs over the long term.

Policy Idea:

Childcare Voucher Program

There is not a video for this idea.

Background: Childcare costs can be substantial for working parents.  If childcare costs are reduced, this savings can help offset the cost of housing and contribute to the quality of life in Edmonds.   A Childcare Voucher program for this purpose could be established in Edmonds, perhaps under the direction of the City’s newly established Human Services Manager.

Policy Ideas:

  • Recommend the City Council explore a Childcare Voucher program for people who work and/or live in Edmonds, perhaps under the direction of the newly established Human Services Manager.
