To view maps and documents related to the subjects described below, please refer to the links under "Quick Links."
The 2011 Comprehensive Plan and Municipal Code amendments consist of various proposed amendments to the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Municipal Code. Two map amendments are proposed with corresponding zoning map revisions and one map and text amendment is proposed, which establishes a new land use designation and includes corresponding zoning code revisions. The nature of the amendments proposed is summarized below:
11-M-01 – 319 12th St NW, Puyallup:
Privately initiated map amendment to convert one 0.45 acre parcel at 319 12th Street NW owned by the Puyallup School District, from Low Density Residential land use designation and RS-06 zone to the Public Facilities designation and zone.
11-M-02 – 30th Ave SW and 9th St SW, Puyallup:
The City is proposing to change the land use and zoning of two adjacent city-owned parcels of a four parcel site from their current mix of land use designations (Public Facilities and Limited Commercial), and zones (Public Facilities and Office Professional, respectively) to one common land use designation and zone. The proposed land use designation is Limited Commercial (LC) and the zone proposed is Office Professional (OP).
This property, acquired by the City with the intention of locating a fire station, is no longer needed and the city wishes to sell it for private development. Greater development opportunity would be realized by the elimination of the mixture of zones on this site, which limit potential uses and require an awkward mix of development regulations.
11-T-01, 11-M-03 and Addition of PMC 20.31 RMX and 20.52 RR-DRO:
City-initiated text amendment to the City Comprehensive Plan Land Use Element to establish a new land use designation, the River Road Mixed Use Center (MUC), and related map amendment to reflect that new designation and the associated zoning designation of River Road Mixed Use (RMX). These changes are necessary in order to be consistent with the recently adopted River Road Corridor Plan. In addition to amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, there are necessary additions to the Puyallup Municipal Code. This includes establishing development standards for the new RMX zone and design standards applicable to properties under the design overlay.
The City of Puyallup recognizes the importance of environmental stewardship, energy efficiency and conservation in every part of the organization.
