|What was the Comprehensive Plan Update?|
The City's Comprehensive Plan contains our 20-year vision of how the City will grow and defines the Goals, Objectives, and Policies related to land uses, housing, economic development, parks and recreation, transportation, capital facilities, utilities, and public services.
The State Growth Management Act (GMA) contains provisions that require the periodic review and updating of Comprehensive Plans and their associated development regulations to ensure continued compliance with the Act. Similar to other jurisdictions within Skagit County, the City must complete this update in June of 2016.
The last major update to the City's Comprehensive Plan was in 2005; however, the Parks, Open Space and Recreation Element was updated in 2014.
Following are links to presentations provided to the City's Planning Commission, Citizen's Advisory Committee, City Council, and other groups regarding Comprehensive Plan to-date.
