Comprehensive Plan Amendments

Under the Growth Management Act (GMA), a jurisdiction's comprehensive plan can be amended but once a calendar year, with specific exceptions. The main reason is so that proposed amendments are considered at one time in order to effectively analyze cumulative impacts.

Visit the Comprehensive Plan & UDC Amendments page for general information on the annual amendment cycle and how citizens can apply for suggested and site-specific amendments and participate in the decision-making process.

There are also specific pages dedicated to the Comprehensive Plan Amendment Cycles for the following calendar years: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. These pages contain timelines, hearing dates, decision notices, summaries and other documents and background information.
