Every year, the Seattle City Council considers amendments to the city’s Comprehensive Plan. Each spring, the council invites proposed amendments from the public and from city departments. In the summer, the Council adopts a policy docket that lists which of these proposed amendments it will consider for adoption the next year.
The council has received nine proposed amendments this year and intends to decide in July which of these it will consider for adoption in 2014. To assist in this decision, the council will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments. The council will hold another public hearing next spring before it decides whether to adopt any of the proposed amendments. The proposed amendments include:
•Ballard/Interbay — Amend the Future Land Use Map for an area west of 16th Avenue West, east of the railroad tracks and north of West Dravus Street to remove it from the Ballard/Interbay MIC and change the designation from Industrial to Mixed-Use Commercial.
•Interbay Armory — Amend the Future Land Use Map for property south of Armory Way and west of 15th Avenue West to remove it from Ballard/Interbay MIC and change the designation from Industrial to Mixed Use Commercial.
