Everett Adopts Emergency Ordinance on Permit and Land Use Application Extensions

This week, the city council adopted an interim emergency ordinance temporarily postponing expiration of development applications, approved land use actions, and construction permits for a period of six months. MBAKS staff worked with the city of Everett on an ordinance to extend permit expiration dates. The ordinance will take effect immediately, however the council is required to hold a public hearing on the emergency ordinance within 60 days. We do not expect that hearing to be controversial.
