Redmond 2050 Community Workshops and Public Hearing are Happening in July
REDMOND, WA – The City of Redmond invites the community to participate in workshops and a public hearing about the future of Redmond as part of the Redmond 2050 periodic update to the Redmond Comprehensive Plan. Community input will advise how growth should be accommodated in Redmond through 2050.
Two community workshops with the same content will be held on Monday, July 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS) multipurpose room, 17550 NE 67th Ct., and Wednesday, July 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th St. A public hearing on the Redmond 2050 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) will be held Thursday, July 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Redmond City Hall.
Redmond is planning to accommodate 24,800 new homes and 29,760 new jobs between 2019 and 2050. Updating the Redmond Comprehensive Plan and planning for growth are required under the Washington State Growth Management Act.
The City recently released the Redmond 2050 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) which evaluates three growth alternatives to accommodate this required growth. City staff used community input collected in 2020 and 2021 to develop the three distinct growth alternatives. Now Redmond would like to hear from community members again to help develop a preferred alternative and inform updates to Redmond Comprehensive Plan policies and associated development regulations.
In addition to the workshops and public hearing, community members can provide input online. A Redmond 2050 StoryMap, questionnaire, and the complete DEIS are available at redmond.gov/Redmond2050. Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
