The Southwest Area Plan (SWAP) was adopted by the City of Redmond in the September 9, 2014 and is based on the Framework Plan that was adopted by the City in 2006 for the expanded Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), and provides guidance for future land uses, densities, neighborhood amenities and necessary public facilities and services for properties within the SWAP boundaries.
The SWAP examines land uses in the area surrounding Ridgeview High School and includes land (primarily large undeveloped parcels) located within the existing City limit, land outside the City limit but within the acknowledged UGB, and land within the Urban Reserve Area (URA).
While the SWAP does not serve as formal land use master plan for the area or individual properties, it does provide more specificity and ensures that all development in the project area is coordinated. When formal land use master plans for areas within the SWAP boundaries are created, the SWAP will serve as a basis that provides guidance for future land uses.
The planning process for the SWAP, which consisted of a Citizens Advisory Committee and six public meetings, included a review of the existing Comprehensive Plan goals and policies, the adopted Framework Plan for the UGB area, and the Statewide Planning Goals. A summary of that process can be found below along with the adopted SWAP document.
