Comprehensive Plan Impact on Reviews
How does the New Comprehensive Plan impact zoning map change, annexation, and development agreement reviews?
Growth Management staff have been reviewing annexation petitions and zoning map change applications against the new Comprehensive Plan Community Goals and Objectives since their adoption in 2021. Since the full plan was adopted in October of 2023, staff are reviewing proposals against the full adopted plan for consistency. To be transparent in what this review of Comprehensive Plan consistency looks like, staff have developed this guide. This guide is intended to be used by each audience as follows:
Use this document as a guide to design a proposal consistent with the Comprehensive Plan prior to application submittal
Use this guide to hold proposals accountable to the vision laid out in the Comprehensive Plan
Use this guide to hold staff accountable in our reviews
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN POLICY REVIEW
Comprehensive Plan Zoning Consistency
Zoning districts show what can be built, in what way, and how. Some zoning districts are more consistent with the Place Type designation than others. This is just one way staff can review for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan.
Check out the Zoning Decoder (PDF) to see if the proposed zoning would be consistent with the Place-Type designation.
