Redmond 2050 Existing Conditions Report

OVERVIEW STATEMENT:

recommendation

Over the past three months staff have produced and sought community input on the Redmond 2050 Existing Conditions Report, draft 1.0. The Existing Conditions Report is an early deliverable of the Redmond 2050 project. It provides readers with information about the legal context for local planning, current conditions, trends, and perhaps most importantly, policy considerations for updating the Redmond Comprehensive Plan. At the Council’s March 23, 2021 study session, staff will seek input from Council specifically on policy considerations: what considerations are missing from the Existing Conditions Report draft 1.0? What policies should be considered moving forward?

                     Other Key Facts:

An existing conditions report summarizes community characteristics and technical information related to existing land use, zoning, demographic trends, market potential, transportation networks, community facilities, parks, environmental features, and open spaces. This catalogue of information facilitates informed decision making by allowing all community members to start with the same set of facts. An understanding of existing conditions and trends is needed to inform the development of future goals, policies, and regulations. This report will provide important baseline information that will serve as the foundation for Redmond 2050 periodic review and update of the Redmond Comprehensive Plan.

OUTCOMES:

The outcome of seeking input on policy considerations from the community and City Council will be a Comprehensive Plan that reflects the community’s vision for the future of Redmond.
