Citizen Advisory Committee Recommendation
The Southeast Redmond Neighborhood CAC has recommended a set of neighborhood plan policies that address the long-term evolution of the Southeast Redmond neighborhood. Key elements of the recommendation include:
- Retaining land for manufacturing and industry;
- Recognizing the importance of Redmond's groundwater and surface water and supporting citywide plans and policies to protect them;
- Planning for new residential and employment opportunities in the area north of Woodbridge;
- Improving mobility for all modes by planning for new motorized and nonmotorized connections;
- Prioritizing transportation corridors for efficient heavy-duty truck travel and freight transit;
- Supporting housing affordability and choice;
- Completing planned trail connections and developing existing parks;
- Enhancing a sense of place and community through opportunities for gathering places, particularly as part of private development and design of the public realm;
- Renaming the Gateway Design District to the Regional Retail subarea while maintaining the same land use intent in neighborhood plan policies; and
- Maintaining current zoning along Redmond Way, preserving the limits of the Manufacturing Park Overlay.
