The City’s Planning Commission is currently reviewing 15 proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. The amendments under consideration include adopting an Arts and Culture Comprehensive Plan, creating a new Private Community Facilities zone, and rezoning a parcel in Town Center for commuter parking, among several other topics.
Interested residents can learn more and give feedback through the City’s new online community engagement platform, Let’s Talk Mercer Island. The Comprehensive Plan Update is the first major project posted on the site, and there are plans to add others in the coming weeks, including the Critical Areas and Shorelines update and the Aubrey Davis Park Master Plan.
The City is launching this new platform to make it easier for residents and business owners to engage with City issues at a time and place that is most convenient for them.
Please visit the Comprehensive Plan Update page to read about each proposed amendment, ask questions and post public comments. City staff will respond to questions and all comments will be reviewed by the Planning Commission. Public hearings are also scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 29, and Wednesday, September 5, at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
