Several Snohomish County cities succeeded in receiving state Department of Commerce planning grants for work on increasing housing density. The funds are available due to this year’s passage of House Bill 1923.

Bothell, Lake Stevens, Arlington, Everett, Lynnwood, Monroe, Mukilteo, and Marysville all received planning grant funds. We know from conversations with Bothell they intend to use the money to craft an ordinance increasing short plat thresholds, etc. A complete list of successful applicants for the $4 million in funding and related information is available on Commerce’s website.

For more information, contact Senior Snohomish County Manager Mike Pattison, 425.460.8203.
