For the 2014/2015 review cycle, three land use applications and one text amendment application have been submitted and certified technically complete. The documents for each of these applications may be accessed by following the project links at the end of this page.

The applications had a 60-day public comment period from March 9, 2015 through May 15, 2015. Public Comment or requests for notification of actions associated with these applications should be sent to Tirrell Black, Assistant Planner, 509.625.6185, tblack@spokanecity.org.

Plan Commission consideration of each amendment proposal was conducted at public workshops held during the public comment period. Applicants made presentations to the affected Neighborhood Council during this period. Following the public comment period, the Plan Commission will hold a Public Hearing and consider the amendments. They will forward an advisory recommendation to the City Council.

The City Council considers the amendment proposals, staff report, and Plan Commission's amendment recommendations. The City Council will also hold a Public Hearing and act on these applications.

The Spokane Municipal Code (SMC Section 17G.020.030) outlines Decision Criteria as guidance for decision making on these requests. SMC 17G.020 outlines the Comprehensive Plan Amendment process overall. The link to the Spokane Municipal Code is: https://my.spokanecity.org/smc/
