Map Refinement Project Recommended Draft

The Map Refinement Project will evaluate and amend the Comprehensive Plan Map and/or Zoning Map on specific sites for consistency with the recently adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

Following City Council’s direction to explore additional map changes in December 2016, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability kicked off the Map Refinement Project in April 2017. A Discussion Draft was released in June 2017, followed by public review and comments. Project staff subsequently released a Proposed Draft in September 2017. This was followed by a hearing before the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) in October 2017, which drew 176 items of testimony. On November 14, 2017, the PSC voted on their recommendation to City Council.

With the February 5 release of the Map Refinement Project Recommended Draft to City Council, the public will have time to review the PSC’s recommendations and provide testimony to City Council through winter/early spring.

Next steps

Following the public hearing, Mayor Ted Wheeler will “close the public record” (i.e., in person and written testimony will no longer be taken). Council will then deliberate on the project at one or more additional sessions. Commissioners may introduce new amendments based on public testimony. A final vote on the Map Refinement Project is anticipated in May 2018. The map changes will become effective potentially in June 2018.
