2021-2022 Comprehensive Plan Docket

Under state law Redmond may update its Comprehensive Plan once per year.  Keeping the Comprehensive Plan updated assures that it remains a useful and relevant guide for planning Redmond’s future.

Establishing the 2021-22 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket

As the first step in this process, the City informs the community and city staff of the opportunity to submit proposals to amend the comprehensive and associated zoning code. After the changes are identified, the Redmond Planning Commission and then the City Council review and confirm the list of amendments (known as the “docket”) to be considered over the course of the year.  The purpose of establishing the docket is to coordinate proposed changes and to help the community track progress.  A detailed process to amend the Redmond Comprehensive Plan can be found in the Redmond Zoning Code 21.76.070.J.

On June 30, 2021, the Redmond Planning Commission approved its report recommending that 3 of the 4 applications be included in the 2021-22 Comprehensive Plan Docket.  

On July 20, the Redmond City Council held a meeting and provided an opportunity for public comment on the 2021-22 Docket and Planning Commission recommendation.  

At that meeting, the City Council decided to include the ordinance to adopt the 2021-22 Docket, as recommended by the Planning Commission, on the consent agenda at the Council’s regular business meeting on August 17, 2021.  

During the August 17, 2021 meeting, the Redmond City Council approved Ordinance 3057, approving the 2021-22 Comprehensive Plan Docket. 

Evaluating and Taking Final Action on Docketed Amendments

During the winter and spring of 2022, the Planning Commission and the City Council evaluated each docketed item, per the criteria set forth in RZC 21.76.070.J.9, with final action required to be taken by  City Council by August 31, 2022. 

  • The Planning Commission evaluated the docketed items in Q1 2022. Study sessions were held on January  12 and 26.  A Public Hearing was held February 9. Approval of Planning Commission Recommendation to Council occurred on February 23.
  • The Redmond City Council evaluated the docketed items at a staff report on April 4. Study Sessions were held on April 12 and May 24. 
  • Council took Final Action, adopting the docket amendments, and closing the 2021-22 Comprehensive Plan Docket, at its July 5, 2022 Business meeting

Docket Amendment Process Closed until 2025

During the Redmond 2050 Comprehensive Plan update, the City will not be accepting amendment proposals. Proposals will be accepted again starting in 2025, after the Comprehensive Plan updates are adopted by December 31, 2024.
