Per RCW 36.70A.130, the City of Lynnwood is required to periodically update its comprehensive plan and development regulations. The last major update the City completed was in 2015, with minor amendments occurring annually.
The Comprehensive Plan annual amendment process consists of three phases (Chapter 18.04 LMC):
- Phase 1 (Spring): Review the proposed amendment list (PAL) and determine which of the proposed amendments should be further evaluated (adopted PAL/docket).
- Phase 2 (Summer): Staff review of amendments on adopted PAL.
- Phase 3 (Fall/Winter): Legislative process to consider proposed amendments.
2022 Proposed Amendments
By state law, amendments to the Plan generally may be considered only once a year. The deadline for filing for the 2022 amendment cycle was April 1, 2022. No annual amendments were submitted this year.
