[ARCHIVED] Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket Now Open

Formal applications to amend the City of Mountlake Terrace Comprehensive Plan in 2018 must be submitted by Monday, April 30, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. to the City of Mountlake Terrace Interim City Hall, Community and Economic Development Department at 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 200, Mountlake Terrace. An application fee applies. Application forms are available at the Interim City Hall and online at www.cityofmlt.com/1940.

The Comprehensive Plan is a broad-based twenty-year plan that guides the city’s livability. It includes goals, policies, and a land use map that indicates where land use districts (such as single family, community business, or industrial areas) are located throughout the city. The city may update its Comprehensive Plan no more than once a year (with limited exceptions). The 2018 update is planned to be completed by the end of the year.

The purpose of considering amendments to the Comprehensive Plan is to ensure the plan reflects appropriate goals and policies for the community and is consistent with state laws. Proposed amendments may address changes to the Comprehensive Plan Map or to specific policies in the plan and subarea plans.

Individuals can initiate amendments by application. In order to be considered for inclusion in the 2018 final Comprehensive Plan docket, an application must be received by April 30, 2018. Applications that are placed on the final docket by City Council will be reviewed and considered for adoption in conjunction with any other 2018 updates.

Any decision to amend the plan would be made by the City Council. Public hearings on Comprehensive Plan amendments will occur with the Planning Commission and City Council later this year.

All amendment applications and proposals for study will be announced through news releases, publications, mailings, postings, website announcements, City Happenings articles, and other appropriate means.

Public participation and input is important and welcome. Interested parties may sign up under “Notify Me” for email, Facebook or twitter notifications at www.cityofmlt.com.

For more information about applying for a Comprehensive Plan amendment, or to confirm meeting dates, please refer to the Comprehensive Plan webpage at http://www.cityofmlt.com/majorupdate or call the Community and Economic Development Department at (425) 744-6207.
