Skyway-West Hill Community Service Area Subarea Plan and Land Use and Zoning Map Amendments

These documents build on the  Phase 1 Skyway-West Hill Land Use Strategy and on many priorities the community has told us about over the past several years.

County staff members will gather comments on the Subarea Plan and Zoning Map Amendments during the dates listed above. Using this input, they will update the documents. The King County Executive will send the revised documents to the King County Council at the end of the year. We expect the council to review, revise, and adopt the Subarea Plan and Zoning Map Amendments by June 30, 2022.

What’s already happened

On July 24, 2020 the King County Council adopted the  Skyway-West Hill Land Use Strategy, Phase 1 of the Skyway-West Hill Community Service Area Subarea Plan.

At the same time, the council also expanded the scope of the county’s subarea plans to include topics beyond land use. They directed King County Local Services to re-engage with the community and establish a 20-year vision for Skyway-West Hill and a broad range of policies in support of that vision.

The council also directed Local Services to develop community needs lists to accompany the county’s subarea plans. This list will include community-identified services, programs, and capital improvement projects that support the community’s vision and inform budget decisions for future investments in Skyway-West Hill.

On Sept. 30, 2019 the King County Executive transmitted his recommended Skyway-West Hill Land Use Subarea Plan to the King County Council as part of a set of 2020 updates to the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. Below are the recommended plan and related information.
