REQUEST RATIONALE:

 

                     Relevant Plans/Policies:

Redmond Comprehensive Plan and all implementing functional and strategic plans, Redmond Zoning Code, Transportation Master Plan

                     Required:

RCW 36.70A.115 <http://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=36.70A.115> Growth Management Act, Vision 2050 Regional Growth Strategy Policies; King County Countywide Planning Policies  

                     Council Request:

N/A

                     Other Key Facts:

The Growth Management Act requires counties and cities, at a minimum, to provide capacity to accommodate 20-year projected growth targets. Growth capacity is the amount of housing and jobs that could be allowed under adopted zoning.  The Vision 2050 Regional Growth Strategy calls for the 16 Core Cities, which includes Redmond, to accommodate 28% of the region’s population growth and 35% of its employment growth by the year 2050.

 

 

OUTCOMES:

PSRC Certification

In its review of comprehensive plans for certification, PSRC looks for substantial consistency of the plan’s land use growth assumptions with adopted countywide growth targets. In addition to assessing that the land use growth assumptions are consistent with the growth targets and implementing the Regional Growth Strategy, PSRC will review actions and measures taken in local comprehensive plans to achieve the regional growth targets. Certification is a requirement for jurisdictions and agencies that intend to apply for PSRC funding or proceed with projects submitted into the Regional Transportation Improvement Program. PSRC maintains a report of the certification status of each jurisdiction

City of Redmond

Redmond will use growth targets to inform planning for land use, transportation, and capital facilities. Recommendations about where to allocate growth, within Redmond, will be based on final growth targets, consultant modeling and analysis, community feedback, and conformance with the Regional Growth Strategy.

 

COMMUNITY/STAKEHOLDER OUTREACH AND INVOLVEMENT:
