Because the Port is governed by Commissioners who are elected by the residents of Edmonds and Woodway, it is important to maintain a strong public communication program. There are a number of ways in which the public can learn about, and become more involved in, the Port of Edmonds.
All Port Commission meetings are open to the public, and all include a time for public questions and comments.
Most major activities of the Port are regularly reported in the Everett Herald, as well as posted on My Edmonds News. In general, Port Commission discussions are announced in advance of any decisions, so that members of the public have the opportunity to discuss all proposed actions directly with Commissioners.
Some development issues may be put to a vote of the District’s residents, particularly those projects involving significant tax funds and/or major community impacts.
