Citizen-Initiated Comprehensive Plan Amendments

As provided for in Resolution No. 2012/020, the City of Monroe is now accepting “Citizen-Initiated” requests to amend the City of Monroe 2015-2035 Comprehensive Plan.  The amendments will be considered as part of the City’s 2018-2019 Plan amendment cycle.  The deadline for submitting Comprehensive Plan amendment requests for this amendment cycle is 5:00 p.m., Monday, July 31, 2018. 

Except in limited circumstances provided for in the Washington State Growth Management Act, this will be the only opportunity for plan amendment requests to be considered during the 2018-2019 Comprehensive Plan amendment cycle. The 2018-2019 plan amendment cycle is anticipated to conclude with final City Council action before or during July 2019.

The 2015-2035 Comprehensive Plan is the 20 year development plan for the city and its adopted Urban Growth Area.  The Land Use Element includes land use designations that establish the city’s land use patterns, and provides direction for the adoption of zoning and other development regulations.

The plan also includes Development Plan Introduction, Vision & Policy Framework, Housing, Capital Facilities & Utilities, Transportation, Economic Development, Parks, Recreation & Open Space, Shoreline & Natural Environment and Plan Implementation elements.  Goals, policies and action statements in the Plan provide direction for current and future decision making to implement the Plan.
