City wants input on Draft Comprehensive Plan
by Jeff Switzer
The City of Woodinville soon be asking its citizens to give their ideas about how they want the city to grow, progress and change, from transportation and affordable housing issues to parks and recreation.
The first public meetings regarding Woodinville's Draft Comprehensive Plan will be held Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers behind City Hall, 13203 NE 175th Street.
Ray Sturtz, city planning director, believes that this public process is an important way for citizens to make their voices and visions heard regarding Woodinville's future.
The final comprehensive plan will act as "an umbrella" comprehensive look at the community and will act as a goals and policy document the city will use to guide its path.
The draft comprehensive plan will also address economic development, utilities, capital improvement, land-use and growth areas, including the Grace area annexation.
Copies of the Draft Comp Plan and Citizen's Guides are available at City Hall and at local libraries.
