Tibbott Chairs City Planning Board

PRESS RELEASE – pic Neil with TreesNeil Tibbott currently chairs the Planning Board of the city of Edmonds. He has served on the board for over four years. During that time he participated in land use decisions, public hearings and the most recently completed Comprehensive Plan, which is now before the City Council. For Planning Board information please see the city website here… http://www.edmondswa.gov/planning-board.html

As a part of Neil Tibbott’s responsibilities as chair of the Planning Board, he represented the Board on the SR 104 study group which evaluated speeds of traffic during various times of the day, accident data and kinds of vehicles using the corridor.  A draft of their study can be found here.

Earlier this summer, Neil facilitated the Public Hearing regarding the proposed Tree Code. As part of the discovery process before recommending any new code to the City Council, the Planning Board provided a forum for public input. After listening to over 50 comments during the course of the hearing and recording citizen opposition to the code, the Planning Board recommended that the Council discontinue the process for updating the Tree Code. A new code, if necessary, would only follow a more complete conversation integrating more citizen input and data from all parts of the city.
