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.
Annual Changes to the Comprehensive Plan (“Annual Docket”)
Each year, the City reviews its Comprehensive Plan to determine if any updates are needed or desired. Residents and other interested parties have the opportunity to propose amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and development regulations.
The annual process typically opens at the end of the calendar year. Check this page for updates.
Staff reviews each request and makes a recommendation to City Council. City Council reviews the proposals at a public hearing, and determines if the proposal should be “docketed” for further analysis. City Council may alter, expand, or remove any requests as part of this process.
Proposals approved by Council are then reviewed in detail by the Planning Commission. Planning Commission typically works with staff over a period of months before scheduling a public hearing. After the hearing, the Planning Commission may recommend the proposal for approval, approval with changes, or denial by the City Council. City Council holds a final public hearing and makes the final decision on all proposals.
The docket process ensures everyone has the opportunity to be involved in planning and shaping the City.
