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.
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.
