2022 Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments
The Growth Management Act allows the City to consider amendments to its Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 20 and 27, 2021, advising the public and outside agencies of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2022 cycle through November 1, 2021. The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan.
On November 23, 2021, the City Council approved the 2022 Docket that included four proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: three map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment will also be rezoned consistent with the new land use designation.
Due to the restrictions on public gatherings arising from the COVID-19 outbreak, and pursuant to Governor Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Proclamation (No. 20-25) and Proclamation 20-28 (and associated extensions), this hearing will be conducted remotely using web and telephone conference tools, as described below.
HEARING DATE AND TIME: March 10, 2022 beginning at 6:00 p.m.
A link to the Zoom meeting will be provided on the agenda and posted to the City’s webpage: www.spokanevalley.org/planningcommission.
