Why was Fourth Avenue Corridor project dropped from 2022 budget?

It is disappointing that the Fourth Ave Corridor project was dropped completely from the 2022 budget. This capital improvement is an inspired and important key feature for the downtown shopping core. The project is also a qualification to remain a state-recognized Creative District.

The project has undergone years of vetting and investment. We are so close to realizing this incredibly wonderful streetscape experience, yet have now cut it off from next steps toward implementation. We are at risk of losing all momentum and wast...

I would like the Streateries taken down now and I do not want walkable main. I am sorry Mr. Williams didn't get to finish what ever this project 4th ave corridor is all about. I want a parking garage but doesn't look like a garage is on the horizon either. There has been enough creative beautification for awhile. It looks great if you get the shacks down. Next year it will be better and we can try again for some parking or more creative beautification. But it is not fair to not work on more of Edmonds I think. I also think it will help calm Edmonds a bit, those who do feel slighted. I don't but I do care for others and I care for our Beautiful Bowl too. But I would like to be able to get to it and park to shop. No parking no cash for the Bowl. Sometimes you must draw a line. We have reached ours as no tree lighting for us!!

I am concerned about preparation and training just in case the worst does happen. I would like to see more police hired in Edmonds myself as we need them. Now more than ever in the history of Edmonds I imagine. We need to protect our police it is a thankless job for many of them. So they do need authority to protect themselves and all of our citizens. This I am afraid may require a weapon that will stop someone or to blow out a tire whatever. We can't just let people steal cars and easily get away. But the police are I think being forced in a sense to follow this insane idea that this country anywhere doesn't need police protection. I am sure our police will try their best not to have to use too much force but they did not take these jobs to be sitting ducks... We sure do not need them to quit like they did in Seattle. So we need to come to an understanding about this and no I don't like the outreach idea at all. It is not safe. If they have to call for back up the wait may be too long
