What is a Comprehensive Plan Amendment?

A Comprehensive Plan amendment is a request from an applicant to amend the city’s comprehensive plan. The Comprehensive Plan is the city’s guiding document for growth and development, and also sets policy with regard to utilities, transportation, land use and housing. They are required by statute to be updated every 10 years. Anyone may request a comprehensive plan amendment (like a PUD) at any time. A comprehensive plan amendment requires a 4/5 vote of the City Council to be approved.
