City Council and Planning Commission Hold Joint Meeting
to Discuss Future Growth of Redmond

 

 REDMOND, OREGON - On Tuesday, May 16, 2017 Redmond City Council and the Redmond Urban Area Planning Commission will conduct a joint meeting to discuss policy items around the future of Redmond’s built environment.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Room 115 at Redmond City Hall.  The meeting is open to the public. 

Redmond is projected to grow to a population of 40,000 by 2035.  This growth brings the challenges of maintaining Redmond’s appeal while pursuing the opportunities for progress and investment.  The Planning Commission and City Council will share an exchange of ideas and values about how to implement the great neighborhood principles, trade-offs associated with annexing new land and planned unit developments, and working with the development code to achieve a shared vision.

“The Redmond Urban Area Planning Commission plays an important role in the implementation of Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan,” states Mayor George Endicott. “This joint meeting is a chance to dialogue about how our two bodies balance our roles when it comes to land use, development, and the course our city’s growth will take.”

The Planning Commission is charged with reviewing and making recommendations to the City Council on various land development issues including proposed City Comprehensive Plans, zoning regulations, requests for the rezoning of land, site development plans, conditional use requests, and subdivision of land.  They are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Redmond residents.  The Commission and City staff pursue these goals by promoting the highest standards for development and revitalization in all of Redmond’s neighborhoods and employment centers.
