The City of Auburn is issuing a Notice of Public Hearing for the following described project. The project application materials and listed studies may be reviewed at the Auburn Department of Community Development at 1 E Main St., 2nd Floor, Customer Service Center, Auburn, WA 98001.

Proposal: Request to amend contract rezone (Ordinance 4456) of approx. 7.7 acres (four parcels) of C-3 zoned properties to include Live/Work as a permitted use.

There is no development proposal associated with this request. However, the applicant is proposing development on King Co. Parcel No. 000080-0053 which is currently vacant. The above stipulations would be memorialized through an amended contract rezone, which would apply only to the subject property.
