Comprehensive Plan Agreement

Community Facilities Zone Update: July 26

Today the City announced a “pause” in their review of the Community Facilities Zone (CFZ). This allows for additional time to consider how to best enable community facilities like ours to evolve in a way that gives the community assurances on development standards, and that utilizes a more inclusive, flexible and predictable process than is possible under the current Single-Family zoning.

We are committed to continuing to work closely with the City and the community on tangible next steps as we move forward with our planning efforts, so that we can continue to deliver on our missions in serving young families, students, seniors, neighbors and the community of Mercer Island.
