The City Council will hold a public hearing during its November 17, 2020 meeting to consider three docket applications proposing Comprehensive Plan amendments and amendments to the City’s Land Use Development Code (Chapter 14 Snohomish Municipal Code).
The three applications being considered are:
- A City-initiated proposal to amend the Comprehensive Plan in anticipation of new polices to be recommended by the Midtown Planning District Task Force.
- A proposal submitted by the owners of the property at 2100 Weaver Road to amend the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation Map to rezone the property to Low Density Residential (LDR) from Single Family Residential (SFR).
- A proposal submitted by the First Presbyterian Church of Snohomish to amend the City’s sign code (Chapter 14.245 SMC) to allow the display of multiple banners simultaneously on the same site without limitation on the length of display. Current regulations limit the display of banners to one banner per site for a maximum of 30 days during a calendar year.

The Growth Management Act provides for an annual opportunity for the public to propose amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Development Code. The process for submitting those proposals is called the docket process.
Placement on the Final Docket does not mean the proposal will be adopted. Rather, it means the proposal will be fully analyzed by staff and brought to the Planning Commission for a recommendation to the City Council.
The docket process is codified in SMC 14.15.020. If you have any questions about the docket, please don’t hesitate to contact Planning Director Glen Pickus via email or by calling 360-282-3173.
