2018 Comprehensive Plan Amendments

July 24, 2018 - Every year, the City undertakes a process to make targeted amendments to its Comprehensive Plan, the State-required document that all 39 counties and 281 cities and towns use to map out land use planning, anticipated growth (residential and otherwise), and desired improvements.
Mercer Island’s 2018 Comprehensive Plan amendments include a variety of subjects, such as: policy discussions related to the Stroum Jewish Community Center (SJCC) / French American School / Herzl-Ner Tamid area; Critical Area protections; transportation “level of service” updates; arts and cultural policies; and others.  A complete, compiled list of all proposed amendments will be posted on the City’s website in early August; in the meantime, approximate language is available from the July 18 meeting of the City’s Planning Commission available here.
In an effort to expand engagement and reach new stakeholders, the City will be opening up an online public outreach and comment forum in early August, with the intention of employing this new tool in other future arenas. Comments posted on this new site will be visible to the public and the Planning Commission, along with supporting materials such as presentations, video explainers, and a Q&A board monitored by staff.
The Planning Commission will also be hosting a public hearing at 6:00pm on August 29 and September 5, 2018 at City Hall.  Email or written public comment may be submitted at any time during the Planning Commission’s review, until the public hearing is closed (on September 5). 
For questions, or to submit comments, please email Evan Maxim, Interim Director of Development Services at
