2023 Annual Comprehensive Plan Map Amendments and Related Zoning Map and Text Amendments

The City of Auburn is issuing a Notice of Public Hearing (NOH) for the following described project. 

Proposal: Adopt amendments to the City’s Comprehensive Plan consisting of the following Map (CPM) Amendments and amendments to zoning text and map (rezone) for City-initiated applications to implement:

Comprehensive Plan Text Amendments 
CPM #1 – Volume 1: Land Use Element: Comprehensive Land Use Map to be updated to reflect annexation of the area from the city of Kent for a 155-acre area commonly known as The Bridges Planned Unit Development. This area is generally bounded by SE 288th, 124th Ave SE, SE 304th ST, and 118th Ave SE.  Staff is proposing to establish Comprehensive Plan Map designations of “Single Family Residential” and “Moderate Density Residential” for the site where there were previously none. Changes will also include concurrent zoning changes including the establishment “R-1 Residential”, “R-5, Residential” and “R-10, Residential” zoning districts and  the Bridges zoning Overlay , which is intended to recognize and be in accordance with the development standards allowed by the City of Kent’s municipal code as they were approved for the Bridges Planned Unit Development prior to its annexation into the City of Auburn. Zoning map and text amendments are proposed to be processed concurrent with the Comprehensive Plan map amendments.
