West Hayden Island Project Focus of Planning and Sustainability Commission Worksession

Discussion sets the stage for commissioners’ vote and recommendation on July 9

After several public hearings, the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) engaged in a robust discussion about the annexation and planning for West Hayden Island on May 28. The commissioners deliberated about issues raised during the public hearing on May 7, as well as written testimony they received from the public and other agencies. They discussed specific outstanding issues, such as environmental and floodplain mitigation, park and health funding, and amendment procedures for the Intergovernmental Agreement. And at the end of the meeting, the PSC directed staff to make final amendments to the proposal for West Hayden Island.

Bureau of Planning and Sustainability staff will release an updated version of the WHI draft proposal the week of June 17. Then the PSC will hold another worksession on July 9 at 12:30 p.m. to make a recommendation to City Council, which will likely hold a final hearing on the project later this year.

For more information and upcoming dates, please see the WHI website.
