Members of the Community Streets Task Force reconvened at the Weyerhaeuser Room at the Everett Station, located at 3201 Smith Ave., on Monday, March 30, from 4-5:30 p.m. The group discussed the draft implementation plan, and shared updates on several of the recommendations.
The task force, comprised of service providers, business owners, community members and other representatives from around Everett, began meeting in July 2014. The group met a total of nine times, and released their final report and recommendations on Nov. 13.
The goal of the task force was to develop recommendations that could be implemented by the community to address street-level social issues in Everett’s urban cores. The final report included 63 recommendations in six categories: public safety, enhanced services, housing and shelter, public understanding, interagency coordination and advocacy.
Since January, six groups of community leaders, agency and business representatives and city and county staff, have formed work groups to develop implementation plans for each of the 63 recommendations. Task force members and other community members have collaborated on the plans.
The meeting was open to the public and can be viewed on the Everett Channel. For more information on the task force, visit http://everettwa.gov/283/co...
