Amendments to the City's Comprehensive Plan can be initiated by interested citizens under the docket process. Docketing is a public participation procedure required by the state Growth Management Act (GMA) that allows citizens the opportunity to request amendments to a jurisdiction's comprehensive plan and implementing development regulations on an annual basis.
On December 5, 2017, Planning Commission approved both docket items which are scheduled for a City Council briefing on February 7, 2018 and a pubic hearing on February 21, 2018. To view the council packet, select this link.
