The Mukilteo Comprehensive Plan (2015-2035)
The Mukilteo City Council adopted an updated Comprehensive Plan on October 5, 2015 (amended June 4, 2018). This update meets the Growth Management Act requirement to update plans at least every 8 years.
Work on the update began with a strategic vision of what Mukilteo’s guiding land use document should look like, including an extensive outreach effort in the community. Staff, Planning Commission and Council strived to ensure the document represents Mukilteo’s values.
2020 Comprehensive Plan Annual Docket Applications Now Being Accepted until 4:30PM February 11, 2020
Each year, the City of Mukilteo reviews its Comprehensive Plan to determine if updates are needed or desired. Residents and other interested parties have the opportunity as part of this process to propose amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and development regulations (e.g. zoning code, critical areas code). This process is referred to as “docketing,” and provides the opportunity to get involved in the long-term planning of the City.
The annual docket process for 2020 is now open until Friday, February 11, 2020. Please see the following for more information about the docket process and for the 2020 Docket application
Docket applications submitted by 4:30PM February 11, 2020 constitute the “Preliminary” docket. Following the February 11, 2020 close of the Preliminary docket application process, Staff will carefully review each Preliminary docket application and make a recommendation to the City Council as to whether or not an applicant should or should not be allowed to submit a formal docket application that will be given more detailed review.
The City Council will then review the “Preliminary” docket proposals, along with the staff recommendation, at a public hearing. Following the public hearing and consideration of public testimony, the City Council will then decide which “Preliminary” docket applications are to be placed on the “Final” docket.
Proposals placed on the “Final” docket by the City Council must then submit a formal application with fees. These “Final” docket applications are eventually reviewed in detail by the Mukilteo Planning Commission. The Planning Commission typically works with staff over a period of months before scheduling a public hearing where public testimony is received. After the public hearing, the Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council that a “Final” docket proposal either be approved, approved with changes, or denied. The City Council holds a final public hearing and makes the decision on all “Final” docket proposals.
The docket process ensures everyone has the opportunity to be involved in planning and shaping the City.
