Council Meeting Round-Up
On June 14th, the City Council had its regular monthly meeting. Here are the meeting highlights.
- The city approved its first Normandy Park Scholarship Application. This program is intended to help Normandy Park students continue their education after high school.
- The City Council adopted the Washington State Department of Ecology 2019 Stormwater Manual for Western Washington. This action updates our code to address runoff from new development, redevelopment, and construction site projects. It also keeps the city eligible for grant funding through the state.
- Efforts to pursue a Scooter Pilot Program were green-lighted. The purpose of this program is to allow an electric scooter program that can easily be stopped if it doesn’t work for Normandy Park.
- The City Council adopted the city’s 2023-2028 Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This program represents a listing of transportation projects that the city intends to construct or implement in the next six years. Because transportation projects are expensive, the city depends on grants and outside funding to make these projects a reality. Having an approved TIP fosters eligibility for a variety of funding programs.
- A contract for work related to needed stormwater and ADA projects was approved.
- The first reading on an ordinance that will amend the Normandy Park Municipal Code was approved. If approved, these specific amendments will change the city’s code to comply with a state mandate to increase support for certain housing types. This is an interim ordinance, which is only in place for six months, and the second reading is planned for July.
- An ordinance was approved to clarify and expand the ability of City Council members to participate in city council meetings remotely.
- A majority of the City Council approved Resolution No. 988, expressing Council support for Proposition No. 1 on the August 2, 2022, ballot and urged Normandy Park voters to “approve” the issuance of a general obligation bond to finance a new civic center.

As the temperature starts to cool and the leaves change color, we know the fall season is upon us. For local government, that also means budget season. Cities, counties, and certain special purpose districts in Washington State must adopt budgets on an annual or, in some cases, biennial (two-year) basis. The City of Normandy Park uses a biennial budget to strengthen our financial planning, and this document must be adopted by December 31 of every even-number year.
Did you know that National Voter Registration Day was celebrated this past week? September 20th was the kick-off date for a nationwide effort to get citizens to register to vote and/or update their voter registration. Since voting is one of the most important rights we have, I wanted to take some time to give you some additional information about the last election.
On Tuesday, September 13th, the City Council had its regular monthly meeting. Here are the meeting highlights. Two proclamations were approved. We recognized Childhood Cancer Awareness and National Recovery Month. The City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance that will amend the Normandy Park Municipal Code to clarify the rules on dangerous dogs. Our new code will better conform to current State law and provide a straightforward procedure for appeals making our process more defensible. The second reading is scheduled for the October meeting.
The City Council approved an ordinance to align the city’s code with amended State law so the city can enforce order violations, including protection and no contact orders.
