The Mukilteo City Council adopted an updated Comprehensive Plan on October 5, 2015 and amended the plan on June 4, 2018. The update of the city’s Comprehensive Plan meets the Growth Management Act requirement for cities and counties to update their plans at least every 8 years.
Work on the update started over 20 months prior that, beginning with a re-strategizing of what Mukilteo’s guiding land use document should look like, including an extensive outreach effort with staff going out to the community rather than expecting residents to come to meetings at City Hall, and numerous Planning Commission worksessions to ensure the document represented Mukilteo values.
The end result is a document accessible to everybody that is easy to read and understand.
The effort was noticed statewide. In addition to compliments that staff received from the Department of Commerce and Puget Sound Regional Council, the plan, which is titled “City of Mukilteo Comprehensive Plan 2035 – Moving Mukilteo Forward”, was awarded the American Planning Association, Washington Chapter/Planning Association of Washington (PAW) 2015 Planning Award. The award honors outstanding contributions to the field of planning in the category of Comprehensive Planning, Small Cities. The award was presented to the City Council President Bob Champion and Community Development Director Patricia Love at the annual PAW conference in Chelan, Washington, on October 7th, 2015. A special local presentation was also made to the City Council in October, 2015.

Mukilteo Comprehensive Plan (2015-2035)
Requesting Changes to the Comprehensive Plan:
The City of Mukilteo performs an annual review process of its Comprehensive Plan known as ‘docketing’. This process starts with a call to residents and interested parties for applications proposing amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and/or development regulations. This process ensures citizens and other interested parties have the opportunity to be involved in the shaping and planning of the City.
The annual docket process typically opens at the end of the calendar year (November or December). Check this page for information on when the next docket application period will open.
