Comprehensive Plan Amendment for Neighborhood Transportation Connections Maps


The proposed Comprehensive Plan amendment would update and add further definition of proposed locations for transportation improvements in portions of SE Redmond, Bear Creek, NE Rose Hill, and N. Redmond neighborhoods. Project locations are conceptual in nature and serve as a guide to staff, developers, residents, and other interested parties as Redmond continues to develop strong connections within the community through new streets, bikes and pedestrian trails. This link describes the proposed changes to the Transportation Connections Maps in four Redmond neighborhoods.

Check the Planning Commission's Topic Under Review page for more information and the Extended Agenda for upcoming meetings related to this topic, including a public hearing at Planning Commission meeting currently anticipated in May 2018.

Proposed Amendments to Comprehensive Plan Neighborhood Transportation Connection Maps

Proctor Comprehensive Plan & Zoning Code Amendment Request


The Proctor Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code amendment is a request to change the zoning to allow for standalone residential development and small-scale commercial services on the 15.38 acre property located at the SW corner of Willows Road and NE 124th St. The change is requested by the property owner and Quadrant Corporation (Applicant).

The property is currently zoned “Business Park” which allows multifamily land uses only as part of mixed-use building with nonresidential uses on the ground floor. Stand alone multifamily uses are not permitted under the current zoning regulations.


The Applicant has requested the property be rezoned from Business Park to Design District – which would involve the creation of new Comprehensive Plan policies and zoning regulations specific to the property and to increase the range of allowable residential uses on the site.

Environmental Review

Environmental review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) has been completed on the draft Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code amendments. The Technical Committee issued a Non-Project Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) on February 28, 2018.

Next Steps
