County Council Candidate Forum

PUD Building
2320 California Street, Everett

This event is FREE to everyone and will include a free lunch (with gluten and lactose free options). Because we are preparing lunch, we do need an RSVP so we can plan for food.

What does it take to build livable, sustainable communities?  How can we be a part of planning our neighborhoods? What do you want your community to look like in 20 years?

Snohomish County is making decisions now – about how and where it will put new homes and jobs – that will shape our future through 2035.  Every step of the County’s process there will be opportunities for you to weigh in and make sure the council adopts policies to make that growth create more livable, sustainable communities.

This is why you should join WEC on Saturday, October 12th at the 4th Annual Livable Snohomish County Summit and County Council Candidate Forum.

Keynote speakers will be Dr. Andrew J. Dannenberg, MD, MPH, Affiliate Professor at the University of Washington Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences in the UW School of Public Health and in the Department of Urban Design and Planning in the UW College of Built Environments; and Sara Schott Nikolic, Principal Planner with Puget Sound Regional Council.

The summit will include 12 breakout sessions covering a wide variety of ways we can build livable communities, films, informational tables and exhibits. There will also be a County Council Candidate Forum for the three council seats up for election in November.  This is a fabulous networking opportunity as well!

The event is hosted by Pilchuck Audubon Society and Growing Transit Communities and co-sponsored by Futurewise, League of Women Voters of Snohomish County, Snohomish Group of Sierra Club, and Transition Port Gardner.

Please RSVP before October 8th to kristin@futurewise.org.

Per MLTNews.com, the Sheriff is throwing his proverbial hat into this ring. Mr. Lovik will present a decent choice for us residents. It’ll be interesting to see who else comes forth, though.
