Yesterday I spent a little time walking right along Colby. I was struck by the large number of vacant store front spaces. Which surprises me, since retail space in the region is in high-demand. I guess we can see the upper bound of that.
Perhaps Everett is considered too far from Seattle. I find that interesting as it’s only 35 miles, 44 miles to Seatac airport.
The city has an amazing amount of potential. I hope that the business community realizes it and helps Everett grow…and grow the right way.
Maybe that can Everett’s call to glory: smart and compassionate growth! Just a thought.
