Current Projects

Welcome to our current land use projects page. Feel free to use the story map below to see where the projects are, and for more information about each, click on the expandable tabs at the bottom of the page.

This page features all of our current Planning Cases broken down by case type.

Administrative cases are those that staff review and issue a Notice of Decision. These cases include (but are not limited to) Boundary Line Adjustments and Short Plats. The guidelines are outlined in SMC Chapter 20.01. *Note: Not all administrative decisions require public notice or a notice of decision.

Quasi-Judicial cases are those that are heard by an appointed Hearing Examiner. These include (but are not limited to) Conditional Use Permits, Preliminary Subdivisions, and Planned Unit Developments. More about the Hearing Examiner process can be found in SMC Chapter 2.10.

Legislative cases include code updates and Comprehensive Plan updates. Typically, suggested changes are brought to the Planning Commission, and then recommended for adoption at the City Council level. If adopted, an Ordinance is signed and the code is updated. The City is preparing to update the Comprehensive Plan. To follow along, visit our Comprehensive Plan page.

For questions, please contact the Planning Division.
