In Washington, the Growth Management Act (GMA) requires cities to plan for and manage population growth with goals focused on how we can encourage development in urban areas, meet transportation needs, and increase affordable housing. King County policies also require that urban cities like Redmond plan for a greater share of the region’s housing to accommodate future growth.

In 2019, Redmond received a grant to develop a Housing Action Plan. The Plan will include an analysis of the existing housing stock, current and projected housing needs, and opportunities for housing. The City will also connect and engage with the public on this topic to bring the community’s vision into the plan.

This information will help us develop strategies to meet current and future housing needs. Providing for affordable housing in Redmond, with a variety of housing types is a priority for the City as outlined in our Community Strategic Plan. Thanks to those who have participated in the online questionnaire. This feedback has been summarized and included in the Refined Draft Plan, along with a detailed implementation plan. This will be presented to City Council on March 2, 2021, with anticipated adoption of the final plan scheduled for March 16, 2021.
