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.  

The anticipated timeline for establishing the 2021-2022 Comprehensive Plan Docket is:

  • May 26, 2021: Planning Commission study session 
  • June 16, 2021: Planning Commission public hearing 
  • June 30, 2021: Planning Commission recommendation to the City Council
  • July 13, 2021: City Council Committee of the Whole briefing
  • July 20, 2021: City Council staff report
  • August 17, 2021: City Council action to establish the 2021-2022 Comprehensive Plan Docket

All Planning Commission and City Council meetings are open to the public and are cablecast live on RCTV channel 21 (Comcast) or 34 (Ziply) and streamed live and archived for on demand viewing.

The summaries and application materials for the 2021-2022 docket are listed below.
