Last year, activity ramped up for the Comp Plan Update, the 30-year plan for the city. During the fall, the city gathered public input via the so-called ‘Comp Plan Map App’ online. That input included a proposal from city planners to designate property on Sandy Blvd in Sumner neighborhood for rezoning. On the surface, this proposal could fit with results of a 2009 neighborhood survey seeking more walkable residential businesses, such as a grocery store, coffee shop or bakery.

At our May meeting, neighbors expressed concern about the rezoning of Sandy Blvd from 53rd to I-205. As part of the plan, the city is considering multilevel storefront commercial which will have an impact on parking. This meeting is a chance to learn more and present your questions about the city’s plan.
