2018 Planning Commission Work Plan/Comp Plan
The Comprehensive Plan contains the community’s vision for its future and sets policy and guidance to achieve the vision. In addition to the vision of the future, the plan also includes “Elements” that address a wide range of topics including land use, housing, transportation, capital facilities and utilities, parks and recreation and economic development. The Comprehensive Plan also provides a policy framework that guides the City’s other functional plans such as the Park and Recreation Plan, the Comprehensive Water System Plan and the Comprehensive Sewer System Plan.
Update Schedule and Documents
The Planning Commission has started preliminary review of the work plan for the year. The work plan can be downloaded *here*. Once the commission has reviewed all of the items a Public Hearing with the Planning Commission will be scheduled, environmental review will be completed and a recommendation will be made to the City Council. As part of this year's amendments, they City Council has tasked Planning Staff and the Planning Commission to revise the city's Sign Code. This is due to recent court cases. The goal of the revision will be to update our sign codes to reflect recent court decisions, make amendments for new technologies and make the codes easier to read and implement. City staff is working on a Request for Proposals (RFP) and will select a consultant soon. This process will likely include and open house as well as solicit comments from the business community, citizens and elected representatives.
If you would like to be notified of open houses or other related information or would like to provide comments, please email compplan@ci.Enumclaw.wa.us. Here is a copy of the proposed public participation program *click here*.
