State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Determination

We have refined our action plans based on public input and are ready to move the rezone legislation forward. The rezones intend to achieve the community’s vision to strengthen the Central Area’s unique identity and community character as identified in the Action Plan and the Comprehensive Plan Central Area Neighborhood Planning Element. These actions will help create vibrant and resilient commercial districts that encourage pedestrian friendly mixed use development, support both existing and new businesses and development, provide opportunities for a variety of shops, services, and affordable housing that serves the diverse Central Area community.

On June 29, 2015, we published the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Determination of Non-Significance for each node along with the Action Plan, Urban Design Framework, draft ordinances, and a Director's Report. The public comment period closed on July 20, 2015, and we will move the legislation forward in 2016-2017.
