Project Background

During 2021 - 2023, Phase 2 of the Redmond Zoning Code ReWrite will continue streamlining the City's development regulations and begin their reorganization. This phase involves relocating portions of the code, amending provisions for alignment with citywide priorities, and focusing all updates through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The first phase involved a "foundational" updates to the code including basic streamlining, strengthening the code's foundation in support of affordable housing, improving clarity and conciseness, and enhancing economic development opportunities and flexibility.

At the tenth anniversary of the last significant rewriting, this is multi-year project to improve code clarity and conciseness and to coordinate with other City actions including the Housing Action Plan, Comprehensive Plan periodic update (2050), and a periodic update to the Transportation Master Plan and other functional plans.
