Annual Comprehensive Plan Docket

2024 Comprehensive Plan Docket Applications Being Accepted through January 31, 2024

Every year, citizens have the opportunity to request amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and its implementing ordinances through a process known as "docketing", which is outlined in RCW 36.70A.470(2). As outlined in the city's Comprehensive Plan Introduction (pages I-14 through I-20), docket proposals are accepted through January 31st of each year for consideration during the current year and provide citizens with the opportunity to voice their opinion on how the city should take shape.

The city is currently undertaking a Periodic Update to its Comprehensive Plan. Per WAC 365-196-610(3)(a), any 2024 docket proposals that are accepted by the City Council will be reviewed concurrently with the Periodic Update. 

All citizen-initiated amendment proposals received by January 31st will be analyzed against the amendment and ratification criteria in the Comprehensive Plan Introduction (Page I-19). For more information or to submit a 2024 docket proposal, please contact David Levitan at or 425-622-9425.
