Councilmember Sally J. Clark

Clark wants citizens and businesses to be informed about changes

SEATTLE Councilmember Sally J. Clark announced that the Council will extend the deadline by which amendments to the Citys Comprehensive Plan may be submitted from January 18, 2008 to February 25, 2008. Councilmember Clark said, The Council has streamlined the process for submitting proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. These changes are an improvement, but people may need more time to get used to them.

The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year policy plan designed to articulate a vision of how Seattle will grow in ways that sustain its citizens values. The City first adopted the Comp Plan in 1994 in response to the state Growth Management Act of 1990. In October 2007, the City Council adopted Resolution 31016, which changed the Comp Plan amendment process. Suggestions for amending the Plan should be sent by February 25 to the City Council at, rather than to Department of Planning and Development as in the past. The Department of Planning and Development will still be the Mayors lead department for analyzing the possible amendments once they are identified in the Councils resolution.

You can find out how to submit a Comprehensive Plan amendment on the City Councils website, and may obtain an application to submit at amendment at, . If you do not have computer access, contact Bob Morgan (206-684-8150) or Ketil Freeman (206-684-8178) of the Councils Central Staff.

The Council is expected to select the docket of amendments for consideration this spring and is planning to vote on them late in the summer, following analysis from the Department of Planning and Development. Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan are considered by the Council annually as is prescribed by the states Growth Management Act.

Councilmember Clark said, In this year of transition, I want concerned community members and businesses to have an ample opportunity to propose changes as they see appropriate.
