The Community Development Department and the Planning Commission have developed a proposal to update the permitted uses in each zoning district and amend specific zoning district boundaries.

The proposal will aid the City in implementing the goals and polices of the City's Comprehensive Plan by promoting infill development, increasing density in proximity to services and amenities, and allowing for mixed use development.

Planning Commission Review

The Planning Commission will meet on July 25, 2019 at 5:45 pm in City Council Chambers to review the community feedback received so far on the City of Ellensburg's proposal to update its zoning ordinance. The City's decision-makers use this ordinance to implement the City's 20-year plan and manage growth and development in the City.
