BACKGROUND: The City of Spokane Valley has been allocated $24,157 as part of the 2020 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program. These funds are designed to support all components of the criminal justice system. Spokane Valley staff has relied on recommendations of the Spokane Valley Police Chief to identify proposed projects to be funded with the grant. The Police Chief and the City Manager have recommended spending the funds to support Officer Safety and Wellness, an identified area of emphasis for the JAG. The components identified are lighting and cameras to cover the Spokane Valley Police Precinct rear lot, immediately to the south of the existing precinct building. The initial quote for the lights is $20,488. Any remaining funding will go toward cameras. As the award is less than $25,000, the award period is for two years beginning on October 1, 2020. The award formula is based upon population and violent crime statistics for states. The state portion is then split, with local jurisdictions receiving 40% of the funds. The split between local jurisdictions is based upon each jurisdiction's proportion of the three-year violent crime average. OPTIONS: Consider whether to authorize staff to submit an application for the Justice Assistance Grant for items listed above or as modified. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Move to Authorize the City Manager or designee to Apply for the Justice Assistance Grant to purchase lighting and cameras to cover the Spokane Valley Police Precinct rear lot, immediately to the south of the existing precinct building.

Program Description Overview The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to states and units of local government. BJA will award JAG Program funds to eligible units of local government as described in this FY 2020 JAG Program Local Solicitation (BJA will issue a separate solicitation for states). Statutory Authority: The JAG Program is authorized by Title I of Pub. L. No. 90-351 (generally codified at 34 U.S.C. 10151-10726), including subpart 1 of part E (codified at 34 U.S.C. 10151 - 10158); see also 28 U.S.C. 530C(a). Program-specific Information Permissible uses of JAG Funds In general, JAG funds awarded to a unit of local government under this FY 2020 solicitation may be used to provide additional personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, training, technical assistance, and information systems for criminal justice, including any one or more of the following: • Law enforcement programs • Prosecution and court programs • Prevention and education programs • Corrections and community corrections programs • Drug treatment and enforcement programs • Planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs • Crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation) • Mental health programs and related law enforcement and corrections programs, including behavioral programs and crisis intervention teams Additionally, JAG funds awarded to a unit of local government under this FY 2020 solicitation may be used to enforce state and local laws that establish offenses similar to offenses established in 21 U.S.C. § 801 et seq. and/or to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, with emphasis on violent crime and serious offenders, by providing additional personnel, equipment, training, technical assistance, and information systems for the more widespread apprehension, prosecution, adjudication, detention, and rehabilitation of persons who violate these laws and to assist the victims of such crimes (other than compensation). Additional details can be found on the JAG Resource Page. 4 BJA-2020-17276 Note that the statute defines "criminal justice" as "activities pertaining to crime prevention, control, or reduction, or the enforcement of the criminal law, including, but not limited to, police efforts to prevent, control, or reduce crime or to apprehend criminals, including juveniles, activities of courts having criminal jurisdiction, and related agencies (including but not limited to prosecutorial and defender services, juvenile delinquency agencies and pretrial service or release agencies), activities of corrections, probation, or parole authorities and related agencies assisting in the rehabilitation, supervision, and care of criminal offenders, and programs relating to the prevention, control, or reduction of narcotic addiction and juvenile delinquency." BJA Areas of Emphasis BJA recognizes that many state and local criminal justice systems currently face challenging fiscal environments and that an important, cost-effective way to relieve those pressures is to share or leverage resources through cooperation among federal, state, and local law enforcement. BJA intends to focus much of its work on addressing violent crime, enforcing firearms laws, officer safety and wellness, safe policing for safe communities, and fentanyl detection. BJA encourages each recipient of a FY 2020 JAG award to join federal law enforcement agencies across the board in addressing these challenges. Additional details on the BJA areas of emphasis can be found on the JAG Resource Page. Limitations on the Use of JAG Funds Prohibited uses of funds—JAG funds may not be used (whether directly or indirectly) for any purpose prohibited by federal statute or regulation, including those purposes specifically prohibited by the JAG Program statute as set out in 34 U.S.C. § 10152. JAG funds may not be used (directly or indirectly) for security enhancements or equipment for nongovernmental entities not engaged in criminal justice or public safety. Additionally, JAG funds may not be used (directly or indirectly) to pay for any of the following items unless the BJA Director certifies that extraordinary and exigent circumstances exist making them essential to the maintenance of public safety and good order: • Vehicles, vessels, or aircraft* • Luxury items • Real estate • Construction projects (other than penal or correctional institutions) • Any similar matters *Police cruisers, police boats,and police helicopters are allowable vehicles under JAG and do not require BJA certification. For a list of prohibited expenditures under JAG and information about requesting BJA certification for a prohibited item (including unmanned aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and/or unmanned aerial systems purchases) or for examples of allowable vehicles that do not require BJA certification, refer to the JAG Prohibited Guidance section of the JAG Resource Page or the JAG FAQs. Cap on use of JAG award funds for administrative costs— Up to 10 percent of a JAG award, including up to 10 percent of any earned interest, may be used for costs associated with administering the award, which can include indirect costs. 5 BJA-2020-17276 Prohibition of supplanting; prohibition on use of JAG funds as match —JAG funds may not be used to supplant state or local funds but must be used to increase the amounts of such funds that would, in the absence of federal funds, be made available. See the JAG FAQs for examples of supplanting. Although supplanting is prohibited, the leveraging of federal funding is encouraged. Absent specific federal statutory authority to do so, JAG award funds may not be used as a match for other federal awards. Other restrictions on use of JAG funds that require compliance, certification, and/or prior approval — If a unit of local government chooses to use its FY 2020 JAG funds for particular, defined types of expenditures, it must satisfy certain preconditions. Examples of items that require compliance, certification, and/or prior approval by BJA before purchase include: body-worn cameras, body armor, interoperable communications, DNA testing of evidentiary materials, uploading DNA profiles to a database, and entry of records into state repositories. Additional information, including the process to obtain prior approval and as well as a body armor and/or body-worn camera certification form, can be found on the JAG Resource Page. AIlocation determination and Units of Local Government requirements regarding use of JAG funds Eligible allocations under JAG are posted annually on the JAG web page. Award allocations are determined by a four-step statutory formula. Additional information can be found on the JAG Resource Page or the JAG Technical Report. According to the JAG program statute, a "disparity" may exist between the funding eligibility of a county and its associated municipalities. See 34 U.S.C. § 10156(d)(4). Units of local government identified by BJA as disparate must select a fiscal agent that will submit a joint application for the allocation to include all disparate municipalities. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) that identifies which jurisdiction will serve as the applicant or fiscal agent for joint funds must be completed and signed by the authorized representative for each participating jurisdiction. Once an award is made, the fiscal agent will be responsible for distributing award funds to the other jurisdictions in the disparate group through subawards that include all appropriate award conditions. To verify eligibility on the JAG web page, an applicant should click on its respective state and note the following regarding the state's allocation table: (1) Disparate units of local government are listed in shaded groups, in alphabetic order by county, Units of local government identified as disparate must select one unit of local government to submit an application on behalf of the disparate group. (2) Counties that have an asterisk (*) under the"Direct Allocation" column did not submit the level of violent crime data to qualify for a direct award from BJA, but are in the disparate grouping indicated by the shaded area. The JAG legislation requires these counties to remain a partner with the local jurisdictions receiving funds and must be a signatory on the required MOU; and (3) Direct allocations are listed alphabetically below the shaded, disparate groupings. Please note that disparate jurisdictions do not need to abide by the listed individual allocations, which are provided for information only. Jurisdictions in a funding disparity are 6 BJA-2020-17276 responsible for determining individual amounts within the Eligible Joint Allocation and for documenting individual allocations in the MOU. A unit of local government that applies for and receives a FY 2020 JAG award must note the following: • Trust Fund — Units of local government may draw down JAG funds either in advance or on a reimbursement basis. To draw down in advance, a trust fund must be established in which to deposit the funds. The trust fund must be in an interest-bearing account, unless one of the exceptions in 2 C.F.R. §200.305(b)(8) apply. If subrecipients draw down JAG funds in advance, they also must establish a trust fund in which to deposit the funds. For additional information, see 2 C.F.R. § 200.305. • Certifications and Assurances by the Chief Executive of the Applicant Government (which incorporates the 30-day governing body review requirement) —A JAG application is not complete, and a unit of local government may not access award funds, unless the chief executive of the applicant unit of local government (e.g., the mayor) properly executes, and the submits, the "Certifications and Assurances by the Chief Executive of the Applicant Government." The most up-to-date version of this certification can be found at https://bia.ojp.gov/sites/q/files/xyckuh 186/files/media/documentffy-20-local-iag-ce- certification.pdf. Please note that this certification takes the place of the review narrative attachment and contains assurances that the governing body notification and public comment requirements, which are required under the JAG statute (at 34 U.S.C. § 10153(a)(2)), have been satisfied. OJP will not deny an application for a FY 2020 award for failure to submit these "Certifications and Assurances by the Chief Executive of the Applicant Government" by the application deadline, but a unit of local government will not be able to access award funds (and its award will include a condition that withholds funds) until it submits these certifications and assurances, properly executed by the chief executive of the unit of local government (e.g., the mayor). • National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) 3 Percent Set-aside— In preparation for the FBI's 2021 NIBRS compliance deadline, BJA requires, through the application of a special condition, JAG award recipients not certified by the FBI as NIBRS compliant to dedicate 3 percent of their JAG award toward achieving full compliance with the FBI's NIBRS data submission requirements under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Additional information can be found on the JAG Resource Page. Required compliance with applicable federal laws All applicants should understand that OJP awards, including certifications provided in connection with such awards, are subject to review by DOJ, including by OJP and by the DOJ Office of the Inspector General. Applicants also should understand that a materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement (or concealment or omission of a material fact) in a certification submitted to OJP in support of an application may be the subject of criminal prosecution, and also may result in civil penalties and administrative remedies for false claims or otherwise. Administrative remedies that may be available to OJP with respect to a FY 2020 7 BJA-2020-17276 award include suspension or termination of the award, placement on the DOJ high-risk grantee list, disallowance of costs, and suspension or debarment of the recipient. Objectives In general, the FY 2020 JAG Program is designed to provide additional personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, training, technical assistance, and information systems for criminal justice. Although the JAG Program provides assistance directly to states, through pass-through (and similar) requirements, the JAG Program also is designed to assist units of local government with respect to their criminal justice needs. As discussed in more detail in the General Information about Post-federal Award Reporting Requirements discussion, a unit of local government that receives a FY 2020 JAG award will be required to produce various types of reports and to submit data related to performance measurement and accountability. The objectives are directly related to the JAG Program performance measures described at https:llbiapmt.oip.gov/helpljagdocs.html and demonstrate the results of the work completed, as discussed under What an Application Should Include. Evidence-based Programs or Practices OJP strongly emphasizes the use of data and evidence in policy making and program development for criminal justice,juvenile justice, and crime victim services. For additional information and resources on evidence-based programs or practices, see the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide. A useful matrix of evidence-based policing programs and strategies is available through the BJA-supported Matrix Demonstration Project. It offers a number of program models designed to effectively implement promising and evidence-based strategies through the BJA Innovation Suite of programs, including Innovations in Policing, Prosecution, Supervision, Reentry, and others (see https:llwww.bja.gov/Programs/CRPPE/innovationssuite.html). BJA encourages units of local government to use JAG funds to develop and implement these crime innovation strategies, including effective partnerships with universities and research partners and with nontraditional criminal justice partners. Information Regarding Potential Evaluation of Programs and Activities Applicants should note OJP may conduct or support an evaluation of the programs and activities funded under the JAG Program. For additional information, see the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide section, entitled, "Information Regarding Potential Evaluation of Programs and Activities." B.

How to Apply An applicant must submit its application through the Grants Management System (GMS), which provides support for the application, award, and management of awards at OJP. Find information, registration and submission steps on how to apply in GMS in response to this solicitation in the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide. E. Application Review Information Review Process BJA reviews the application to make sure that the information presented is reasonable, understandable, measurable, achievable, and consistent with the solicitation. See the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide for information on the application. Pursuant to the Part 200 Uniform Requirements, before award decisions are made, OJP also reviews information related to the degree of risk posed by the applicant. Among other things to help assess whether an applicant that has one or more prior federal awards has a satisfactory record with respect to performance, integrity, and business ethics, OJP checks whether the applicant is listed in SAM as excluded from receiving a federal award. In addition, if OJP anticipates that an award will exceed $250,000 in federal funds, OJP also must review and consider any information about the applicant that appears in the nonpublic segment of the integrity and performance system accessible through SAM (currently, the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System, FAPIIS). Important note on FAPIIS: An applicant, at its option, may review and comment on any information about itself that currently appears in FAPI IS and was entered by a federal awarding agency. OUP will consider any such comments by the applicant, in addition to the other information in FAPI IS, in its assessment of the risk posed by the applicant. Absent explicit statutory authorization or written delegation of authority to the contrary, the Assistant Attorney General will make all final award decisions. F.

Valleyfest has to make changes in our delivery of community events as well.Throughout the past months,we have remained hopeful that the new COVID 19 cases would lessen, crowds could gather, our friends and neighbors could meet and enjoy our parks, river and Valleyfest events. Valleyfest Cycle Celebration was cancelled because we were not in Phase 3. Cycle Celebration committee worked very hard to comply with the phase requirements on masks, social distancing and sanitation. Currently we are in the Phase 2, and I don't think that Phase 4 will be open by September 25, 26 and 27th Our volunteers, Board of Directors, and sponsors, have been communicating during the past several months with the hope that Valleyfest could be done in real time. However,this is the time that the reality is to move several of our events to virtual or online, and assist our friends and neighbors to make their own festival at home. Valleyfest reimagined for 2020. These are our current ideas with the help of our several software management platforms that are used by Valleyfest. Event Hub is assisting us with our booths and vendors to give them an economic platform to share their business and brand. What will it look like? Virtual Event The show must go on! As you all have seen over the past couple of weeks, live virtual events have taken off. From concerts to conferences, it seems like everyone is finding a way to keep fans and audiences involved during quarantine. With many organizers trying their hand at virtual programming for the first time,we wanted to offer some of the most popular virtual event tools to help you be successful. 1. Valleyfest Vendor Village Village includes virtual vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors integrated into our virtual event. It will allow event partners to have high quality touch points with attendees,and engage them in real-time from virtual booths. Gives the opportunity to sell their products or give out information to shoppers. Booths will be live on September 26th from 12-4pm and then open for 30 days after. Main Stage Live Streaming for Virtual Events: Opportunity to stream live entertainment from YouTube live, Twitch or stream pre-recorded music, and do short ads from our sponsors. Attendee Interaction Video Streams for Live Virtual Events: Vendors can interact live with shoppers or do a demonstration to a large group on Zoom. Storefronts for Virtual Events: Vendors are responsible for setting up and collecting their own money. They can easily connect with Shopify or Etsy. http://eventhu b.sho p/Va I leyfest-2020?preview Click on Nash Potatoes to view a sample booth 2.

Our committee has worked with our partners and met with the City of Spokane Valley police department and SCOPE. How to have fun but not bring attendees,floats, kids to a large event that might spread or exasperate the virus? From our many Zoom meetings,we have borrowed ideas from other regional communities and are adapting them to Spokane Valley. The Portland Rose Festival has been very helpful and our volunteers are taking their own creative ideas and adapting their Porch Parade ideas to Spokane Valley. https://www.paradinginplace.com/ Parading in Place is the title that the PRF used to bring the parade/procession to their neighborhood. Residents were invited to decorate their porches or yards with a theme from the festival or one that they created.There are rules on the content,judging was done, displays were up for two weeks,and cars could get the map and drive to those neighborhoods. The idea is that the parade comes to the neighborhoods. The Valleyfest Procession with our royalty and SCOPE could go to the award-winning neighborhoods and to the neighborhoods where the royal court live. This year there are five girls from Central Valley, University,West Valley and East Valley High Schools.This procession of our royalty could be viewed from your home or from a curb. At this time, in working with the City, roads would not be closed. This would be done with the restrictions of our current phase in September. Virtual Parade or the shoebox floats which kids can make and submit pictures of their creations to be shown on the Valleyfest live stream and YouTube channels. These are some of the ideas that Val leyfest is working on for the festival for 2020.Valleyfest is ever mindful of public safety and the guidelines put forth regarding the re-opening stages for our community.Valleyfest mission is committed to engaging and strengthening the community. CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY Request for Council Action Meeting Date: August 11, 2020 Department Director Approval: Check all that apply: ❑ consent ❑ old business ❑ new business ❑ public hearing ❑ information ® admin. report ❑ pending legislation ❑ executive session AGENDA ITEM TITLE: Proposed Code Text Amendment to the Chapter 19.180 SVMC, Annexation. GOVERNING LEGISLATION: SVMC 17.80.150, SVMC 19.30.040; RCW 36.70A.106 and chapter 35A.14 RCW PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION TAKEN: In 2019 the City adopted amendments to the Comprehensive Plan that included the following policies and strategy: ■ LU-P19 Develop criteria to identify, process, and assess the annexation of land into Spokane Valley ■ LU-P20 Identify land designations for potential annexation areas in the Comprehensive Plan for the adjacent Urban Growth Areas to the City ■ CF-P16 Plan and coordinate the location of public facilities and utilities in potential annexation areas, including identifying the fiscal impacts of providing the facilities, utilities, services, and maintenance. ■ Strategy: Evaluate and develop criteria to assist in the evaluation of annexations. BACKGROUND: Since the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan Update in late 2016, the City has received a number of informal inquiries regarding annexation into the City. During these discussions it was determined that the existing policy framework for annexation needed to be strengthened to provide direction to potential applicants and staff regarding annexation requests. The proposed amendment to Chapter 19.180 of the SVMC is the implementation measure to provide criteria for considering proposed annexations, including review of public facilities and fiscal impacts. While the proposal doesn't identify land designations, it provides a mechanism to address zoning of newly annexed areas. It implements the Comprehensive Plan policies and strategies. Annexation is a tool allowing the City to "annex" and incorporate areas outside of the City boundaries into the City boundaries. Property that is annexed becomes subject to all City laws, including land use, taxation, and other regulatory laws. Further, since the property becomes part of the City, the City becomes responsible for providing services to citizens within the annexed area, as well as for providing and maintaining any public infrastructure or facilities within the annexed area. Thus, it is important for the City to carefully review proposed annexations to understand the fiscal impact to the City to provide necessary services and infrastructure, as well as to understand what value the annexed area will bring to the City, such as adding new available industrial, commercial, or park land for development and beneficial use. Notably, the City does not provide water, sewer, power, or gas, so the primary services are street-related services (sweeping, maintenance, plowing, stormwater, etc.) and public safety. Staff will provide a detailed overview of the criteria, but generally it (1) identifies the process for either City Council or an outside person or entity to propose an annexation, (2) identifies criteria to be evaluated, including existing facilities, new facilities needed, anticipated services to meet City service levels, anticipated expenses, and anticipated revenues, (3) identifies a process to address zoning upon annexation, and (4) establishes clearly that City Council may approve or deny any annexation brought by petition at its sole discretion. OPTIONS: Consensus to proceed to first ordinance reading; or take other action deemed appropriate. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Council consensus to place on a future agenda for an ordinance first reading. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS: None STAFF CONTACT: Mike Basinger, Economic Development Manager Erik Lamb, Deputy City Attorney ATTACHMENTS: 1. Proposed Amended Chapter 19.180 SVMC; and 2. Presentation. DRAFT Chapter 19.180 ANNEXATIONS 19.180.005 Purpose. The purpose of this chapter is to clarify the process and criteria to annex adjacent and contiguous areas into the City, and to ensure that the fiscal impacts of providing the facilities, utilities, services, and maintenance of the annexation area are adequately considered prior to annexation. 19.180.010 Annexation Methods and Applicability. A. All annexations shall occur pursuant to the procedures set forth in chapter 35A.14 RCW, as adopted or amended and as otherwise allowable by law. In addition to all other procedures allowed by law, all voter-initiated, City Council initiated, and direct petition annexations shall be subject to the procedures set forth in this chapter 19.180 SVMC. Other types of annexations may, but are not required to use these procedures. B. To be eligible for annexation the entire subject area must be within an adopted Urban Growth Area and be contiguous with the City boundary. 19.180.020 Annexation Evaluation Criteria. A. The purpose of this section is to provide criteria to evaluate annexations on the basis of their short-and long-term community impact. Annexations shall be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. B. Prior to approval or disapproval of any annexation as allowed by law, the City shall consider at a minimum the following: 1. The ability of the City and other applicable entities to provide required public services at a level equal to or better than that available from current service providers; 2. The financial impact of providing the required public services at the City's adopted levels of service, including potential sources of revenue. Review of financial impact shall include at a minimum an analysis of the costs to provide services and anticipated revenues from the proposed annexation area to support required levels of service; 3. The impact of annexation on any applicable City bonded indebtedness, including an analysis of the impact of City bonded indebtedness upon property within the proposed annexation area; 4. Whether the annexation would follow logical boundaries, such as streets, waterways, or substantial topographic changes; 5. Whether the annexation would eliminate an irregularity or irregularities in the City's boundaries, thereby improving service delivery; 6. Review of existing infrastructure prior to defining boundaries of the proposed annexation to determine logical inclusions or exclusions, including but not limited to the review of the following factors: a. Whether right-of-way will be needed for the provision of utilities or transportation links. Page 1 of 3 DRAFT b. Whether there are pre-existing utilities from a particular district or jurisdiction that are currently in a right-of-way. c. Whether the existing transportation network will produce an unfair burden on the City for the operation, maintenance and preservation or replacement of assumed infrastructure. 7. Zoning that will be applicable for the proposed annexation area, subject to the requirements of SVMC 19.180.040; and 8. Review of any other impact identified as necessary by the City. C. Prior to any annexation, the City will confer with affected special districts and Spokane County to assess the impact of the annexation. Where possible, boundaries should be mutually resolved by the jurisdictions before final action on the proposed annexation. D. The City may request that petitioner(s) provide information regarding the identified impacts as part of a petition or part of the petition process, may require the petitioner(s) to respond to inquiries regarding the impacts, and may require the petitioner(s)to conduct any studies necessary to evaluate any of the identified impacts at their cost or to pay for such studies undertaken by the City. 19.180.030 Jurisdictional cooperation. A. The City shall, as appropriate, cooperate with Spokane County and other municipalities to identify, review, and address area-wide comprehensive planning, zoning, and service provision to urban growth areas that are contiguous to the City's municipal boundaries. B. When determined to be advantageous to the City,the City should assist in the creation of interlocal agreements to provide technical and financial support to contiguous urban growth areas for the extension and improvement of public services and facilities. C. The City will cooperate with Spokane County and other service providers to establish uniform street and utility standards within adopted service areas of the City as appropriate. 19.180.040 Newly annexed areas. A. Annexed areas shall be annexed with the following Comprehensive Plan and zoning designations: 1. The Comprehensive Plan and zoning designation set forth in joint planning designations; or 2. The closest comparable City Comprehensive Plan and zoning designation to that imposed by Spokane County. B. Upon annexation of property, in the absence of a pre-established zoning designation, the City Council shall, within the annexation ordinance, establish an interim classification for the property on the City's Comprehensive Plan and zoning map. The interim zone shall be consistent with the annexation area's Comprehensive Plan designation. If an interim Comprehensive Plan and zoning designation(s) are established, it shall be in place no longer than 12 months unless otherwise provided by ordinance.The process for establishing an interim zoning district shall meet the requirements of RCW 36.70.795. For all property classified in the interim zone, Page 2 of 3 DRAFT the City shall commence all steps necessary to establish an official zoning classification pursuant to the procedure described in SVMC 17.80.140. C. The City may seek to mitigate increased expenses due to annexation through any means allowed by law. An example would be to seek agreement from all property owners within the annexed area that they will not object to the formation of a local improvement district to bring existing infrastructure into compliance with adopted City standards. 19.180.050 Decision on Annexation. Subject to applicable law regarding annexations by election, the City Council shall not be obligated to approve or disapprove any annexation, regardless of the outcome of the review undertaken pursuant to this chapter 19.180 SVMC.

EPF's are facilities that are typically difficult to site due to the use or resulting impacts. EPF's are defined in various state laws including RCW 47.06.140, 81.112.020 and 71.09.020. The Growth Management Act (GMA) requires cities to establish a process for identifying and siting essential public facilities. The State has identified a list of EPF's pursuant to WAC 364-196-550, which includes state and local correctional facilities, solid waste handling facilities, and in-patient facilities, that includes substance abuse facilities, mental health, group homes,and secure community transition facilities.The City may not preclude the siting of essential public facilities within their jurisdiction. The City of Spokane Valley is signatory to the Interlocal Agreement regarding Siting of Essential Public Facilities within Spokane County. The interlocal Agreement defines the process applicable to uses meeting the definition of an EPF. Generally speaking, a proponent would submit a request for determination of appropriate siting process to the Spokane County Planning Department for a decision by the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC). If the use is determined to be regionally or statewide significant, a regional siting process is undertaken that considers a location analysis and public involvement that ultimately results in a ranking of the sites from the BOCC. If the site is determined to be locally significant, the proponent works directly with the local jurisdiction to meet the regulatory requirements. The City regulates EPFs pursuant to chapter 19.90 SVMC. The current regulations categorize the uses as statewide, regionally, or locally significant and identifies the process as noted above. Additionally, the regulations provide that a conditional use permit (CUP) is required pursuant to chapter 19.150 SVMC to address the unanticipated impacts of the use. Lastly the permitted use matrix in SVMC 19.60.050 identifies the zones where EPFs are allowed. Currently EPFs are allowed in all zones except Mixed Use and Parks and Open Space. Although the City cannot prohibit the siting of EPFs within the City limits, the City can prohibit the siting of EPFs in single-family residential zones so long as there is adequate, appropriate land available in other zones including allowing EPFs in at least one residential zone (in this case the Multi-family zone). At this time the City has proposed a code text amendment to prohibit EPFs in the Single-family Residential zones, allow EPFs in the Mixed Use zone and also proposed a reformatting of the chapter to improve the clarity. Staff will discuss the regulations as they exist and discuss the desired code change. The Planning Commission (Commission) conducted a study session on the proposed CTA at the June 11, 2020 meeting. On July 9, 2020, the Commission conducted a public hearing and deliberations. At that meeting, the Commission voted 7-0 to recommend to the City Council that CTA-2020-0002 be approved. On July 23, 2020 the Commission adopted Findings and Recommendation. OPTIONS: Consensus to place this on a future agenda for a first ordinance reading as drafted or modified; or take other action deemed appropriate. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Council consensus to place an ordinance on a future agenda for first reading to consider approval of CTA-2020-0002.

CTA-2020-0002 is a City-initiated text amendment to the SVMC, amending chapter 19.90 of the SVMC and SVMC 19.60.050 to prohibit locally significant Essential Public Facilities (EPFs) in the single-family residential zones, to allow EPFs in the Mixed Use Zone, and to address other housekeeping items. 3. The Planning Commission held a properly noticed public hearing and conducted deliberations on July 9,2020. The Commissioners voted 7-0 to recommend that the City Council adopt the amendment. Planning Commission Findings: 1. Compliance with SVMC 17.80.150(F)Approval Criteria a. The proposed text amendment is consistent with the applicable provisions of the Comprehensive Plan. Findings: The proposed amendment is supported by the Comprehensive Plan and is consistent with the following goals and policies: LU-G 1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. CF-P19 Collaborate with Spokane County jurisdictions in determining the best locations for public and private essential public facilities. LU-P5 Ensure compatibility between adjacent residential and commercial or industrial uses LU-P7 Protect residential neighborhoods from incompatible land uses and adverse impacts associated with transportation corridors. H-P4 Enable the creation of housing for resident individuals and families needing assistance from social and human service providers.

Findings and Recommendations of the Spokane Valley Planning Commission CfA-2020-0002 Page 1 of 2 Findings: The proposed amendment bears substantial relation to public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment. Precluding locally significant EPFs in the single family residential zones protects the character of the existing single family residential uses and allows those EPFs that have a residential component to located in other mixed use or high density residential zones. The proposed amendment protects residential neighborhoods from incompatible land uses and provides for EPFs that require a residential character. The amendment addresses community concerns and protects community character. The amendment will also direct locally significant EPFs into zones and sites more suitable and allow for more efficient processing and permitting of the necessary services they provide. Conclusion: The proposed text amendment is consistent with Comprehensive Plan and bears a substantial relation to public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment. 2. Recommendation: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission therefore recommends the City Council approve CTA-2020- 0002 as proposed.

COMMISSION BUSINESS: a. Study Session: CTA-2020-0001: A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) 19.180,Newly Annexed Areas Economic Development Manager Mike Basinger gave a presentation to the commission explaining the city initiated code text amendment that will amend Chapter 19.180 of the SVMC to clarify the process and criteria to annex adjacent and contiguous areas into the city and to ensure that the fiscal impacts of providing the facilities,utilities, services, and maintenance of the annexation area are adequately considered prior to annexation, Deputy City Attorney Erik Lamb provided additional information regarding annexation. He explained that the amendment will clarify the annexation process for the three types of 1 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 2 of 6 annexation requests: voter initiated, City Council initiated and direct petition. It will outline the criteria that will be evaluated including existing and new facilities, services, expenses and revenues. It will also clearly identify the process to address zoning upon annexation. Chair Johnson asked for clarification regarding zoning for specific parcels as they request to annex into the city limits. Mr. Basinger answered that when the city annexes a property it is zoned with a designation that:is the most similar to its current designation with the County. It will then be brought through the amendment process to evaluate what the zoning should be and go through the public process to make that final designation. Chairman Johnson asked for information regarding financial impact, He asked if a property would still be considered for annexation if it is found that the tax value received would be lower than the cost to the city. Mr. Basinger answered that this criteria will just be used as guidelines for the Council to consider when they make those decisions regarding annexation. b. Study Session: CTA Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments Mr. Basinger explained that local jurisdictions are allowed to make amendments to the Comprehensive Plan once each year. There are five proposed amendments that will be considered during 2020; four map amendments and one text amendment. A public hearing will be held on June 25, 2020. Notice of hearing will be published twice prior to the fifteen day requirement, the site was posted with a"Notice of Hearing" sign, and individual notice was mailed to all residents within a 400 foot radius of the subject properties. After the public hearing, the request will move to Council where they will review Planning Commission findings, consider the public hearing, and approve/modify/deny the request. The floor was given to Senior Planner Chaz Bates to discuss the details of each proposed amendment. CPA-2020-000.1: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential(SFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District,from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates said that this amendment is privately initiated for the property located at 1311 N McDonald Road, between Mission and Broadway. It is owned by Land Use Solutions and Entitlement. The request is to rezone the property from single-family residential (R-3) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The property to the east is zoned multi-family, the property to the south is corridor mixed use, and the west and south are zoned single family residential. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site, the site would support the redevelopment of the parcel, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0002: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC). 2 06-1 1-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 6 • Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located off of Sprague and Fancier and is owned by Lawrence B. Stone Properties. The request is to convert the zoning on 3 acres of land from Industrial (1)to Regional Commercial (RC). The properties to the north are zoned industrial and the property to the south and the west are regional commercial. Findings show that there are no critical areas,the site is completely paved,the change would support redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0003: Request to change the Comprehensive Plrar Land Use Designation from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Multifamily ily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located south of Mission and west of Pines and is owned by Jay Rambo. The request is to convert the zoning of 6.24 acres from Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The properties to the west is corridor mixed use,the north is industrial, the east is corridor mixed use and the south is single family residential. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the site supports redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. A trip generation and distribution letter was completed by the City of Spokane Valley's Senior Engineer and shows a net increase of traffic volumes of one car during the PM peak hour. All other times of the day remain the same. Commissioner Haneke asked if the developer wants to build additional apartment buildings on the property and expressed concern about traffic flow in the area. Mr. Bates answered that this zoning designation would allow for additional multifamily dwelling units or retail. Attorney Lamb responded that the analysis done for this change shows the change from multi-family to corridor mixed use, it is not for a specific proposal. The current zoning of multi-family allows for a significant amount of trips. Corridor mixed use zoning will add more flexibility of uses but according to the traffic study it should not impact the traffic flow more than one car during the peak PM period. Commissioner I(aschmitter asked about the open space requirement for corridor mixed use designation. Building Official Nickerson responded that there are different requirements in the current Spokane Valley Municipal code between multifamily versus corridor mixed use zones. Multifamily does require open space but corridor mixed use does not. If open space was still required, Mission Park would provide the multifamily open space requirement. CPA-2020-0006: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a city-initiated request to change the 9 acre property located at 3830 N Sullivan Rd from Industrial (I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The property is owned by East Valley School District(EVSD) and currently houses the district's Walker Center. This location includes the EVSD administrative services and maintenance 3 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 6 building. The properties to the west, north, and east are all industrial uses, and to the south are retail service and industrial uses. Findings show that there are no critical areas, supports expanded educational uses, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding areas. The proposed amendment allows flexibility so that that EVSD can provide educational services in this location. Education services are prohibited in the industrial zone and EVSD would like to move their Parent/Partner program to this location. CPA-2020-0007: Amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to provide policy guidance for increased housing density with access to support services like transit and corrrntercial services, and provide implementing regulations. Mr. Basinger said that this is a city initiated text amendment that will apply city-wide. It will address alternative housing types such as duplexes, cottages, and townhomes. It is policy language that will help protect residential neighborhoods by incentivizing alternative housing in areas that are supported by existing infrastructure. Staff is proposing an area-wide rezone in hopes to address concerns from the residents regarding the influx of duplex developments and provide appropriate locations for alternative housing. The objective of this amendment is to address those concerns by creating areas that can support denser housing because of its location to transit and services. The vision is that there will be a larger variety of housing types available for residents and will help with housing affordability. The proposal will rezone 1218 acres within the City limits to the new zoning district,R-4. There is 57 vacant acres and 67 acres that are partially used. Studies show that there is potential for 1240 housing units which would lead to 3100 new residents. The proposed area is surrounded by multifamily and corridor mixed use zoning districts. The code text amendment will create the R-4 zone in the code and provide a description and outline permitted uses. The change specifies that duplex development in the R-3 zone shall have a minimum,lot size of 14,500 square feet. There is also an additional text change in the Appendix A definitions that states that townhouses are not considered multifamily. Mr. Basinger stated that staffs analysis shows that single family development will incentivize the R-3 zone because the change will allow eight single family units per acre. The new R-4 zone will promote development of alternative housing types in those areas where transit and services are available giving a greater variety of housing types in areas that can handle an influx of residents. Commissioner McKinley asked what the ultimate intent is for the amendment. Mr. Basinger answered that the vision is to offer a variety of alternative housing within the city. Staff is optimistic that due to the density change in this amendment,the City might see some cottage or townhome developments that would offer more affordable options. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked if the Appleway Trail could be extended. She also asked if Spokane Transit Authority is considering making their services more frequent in this area. Mr. Basinger answered that there are plans to extend the Appleway Trail to Dishman Hills. The Transit Authority is optimistic that they would be able to extend their services as more development happens. They feel that more demand would drive them to offer additional services. Commissioner Beaulac asked about the notification process for the properties affected by this change. 4 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 5 of 6 Mr. Basinger answered that the public hearing has been published twice in the newspaper, it will be sent to the Comprehensive Plan distribution list that includes any person that has ever signed up to receive notifications about comprehensive plan changes (approximately 370 people), it will be published on all of the City's social media platforms, and a media release will be sent out prior to the public hearing. Chairman Johnson asked for clarification about sending notification out regarding the City- wide rezone. Mr. Basinger responded that the City does not send out letters to individual property owners when a City-wide rezone is done. However, staff hopes that the additional notices on social media, press releases, and the distribution list will get the word out to the residents about the change. c. Study Session: CTA-2020-0002.A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code 19.90,Essential Public Facilities. Senior Planner Lori Barlow gave a presentation on the city-initiated code text amendment to amend regulations on essential public facilities(EPF). The proposal is to prohibit locally significant essential public facilities in residential zones. She explained that essential public facilities are facilities that are typically hard to site because of their size and the nature of' their use. These facilities include state and local correctional facilities, solid waste handling facilities, inpatient facilities which includes substance abuse facilities,mental health group homes and secure community transition facilities. Pursuant to the Growth Management Act, cities and counties are required to have procedures to site essential public facilities. They can't be precluded from being allowed within the city limits. However,the City can control the zones where they are located. This request is to preclude all of the residential zones; R-1, R-2, and R-3. The reason for this change is because there have been numerous detoxification facilities proposed within the City limits in the last few years. There was a controversial public hearing held recently for a detoxification center that wanted to move into a residential zone. Staff made the decision that it would be appropriate to look at making a change to limit the zones where these types of facilities can be sited. The City regulates essential public facilities pursuant to chapter 19.90 SVMC. The current regulations stipulate that a conditional use permit(CUP) is required for all essential public facilities to address any possible impacts. Currently, essential public facilities are allowed in all zones except mixed use and parks and open space. Chairman Johnson asked if the new R-4 zone would also be included. Ms. Barlow answered that the City will probably look to exclude that zone if it is created but the current code text amendment only addresses the zones that are in the code right now. Chairman Johnson asked the timefranue for this amendment, Ms. Barlow answered that the public hearing will be held in July,the findings of fact at the following meeting and then moving onto the City Council for their review and decision. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: The Commissioners welcomed Commissioner Haneke to the board. Commissioner McKinley asked for an update regarding opening the City Hall for in person meetings. 5 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 6 of 6 Ms. Nickerson answered that the governor's order for COVID phase three does include allowing face-to-face with customers for government facilities. However, there is no date yet for when phase three will begin. The City has begun preparations for when opening does happen and is putting protocols in place to keep people safe while they are in City Hall. XI.

Public Hearing: CTA-2020-0001.A proposed amendment to Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC) 19.180 Annexations. 1 07-09-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 2 ad The Public Hearing was opened at 6:10 pm. Mike Basinger, Economic Development Manager explained the code text amendment would amend Chapter 19.180 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) to provide further clarification for annexations. He explained that the only areas that can be considered for annexation must be in the Urban Growth Area.The city has received many informal inquiries regarding annexation and during these discussions, staff determined the existing regulations for annexation needs to be expanded to provide clear direction to potential applicants and staff regarding these requests. He stated that the proposed code text amendment will provide criteria to evaluate annexations. The criteria includes the impacts on existing residents,the ability to serve the new area at the adopted level of services, the financial impacts of the annexation and the methods for determining zoning upon annexation. Chairman Johnson expressed concern regarding the financial analysis criteria and that it may show that the area being annexed will not pay for itself. He also mentioned that the economic evaluation is a piece of information that the Planning Commission should utilize to help inform their decision. Mr.Basinger stated he appreciated Chairman Johnson's comment and that this is one of many criteria used to evaluate annexations. Deputy City Attorney, Erik Lamb stated that the criteria is not in any particular order and that City Council may approve or disapprove any annexation that comes forward. The meeting was open up for public testimony. No public testimony was offered on this matter. The public hearing was closed at 6:18. Commissioner Kaschmitter moved to recommend approval of CTA-2020-0001 to City Council. Commission Haneke added that people spend money in the city,which creates additional revenues for the surrounding businesses. Commission Robinson commented that residential areas in the county would still be using the city's infrastructure and that it would be beneficial if those residential areas were in the city. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. b. Public Hearing: CTA-2020-0002. A proposed amendment to Chapter 19.90 Essential Public Facilities SVMC and Chapter 19.60 Permitted Uses SVMC. The Public Hearing was opened at 6:18 pm. Senior Planner, Lori Barlow explained that this code text amendment would modify regulations for essential public facilities. Ms. Barlow explained that it would prohibit Essential Public Facilities (EPFs) from locating in residential zones and it would allow EPFs in the Mixed Use(MU) zone, Ms. Barlow explained that the proposed changes to Chapter 19.90 SVMC will reformat the regulations to highlight the process and then specifically add language to the regulations applicable to locally significant EPFs. She stated that the language added to the last section of 19.90 specifically states that EPFs with local significance are not permitted in the R-1, R-2, or R-3 zones. Ms. Barlow highlighted that the city does have the ability to determine which zone locally significant EPFs may be located in as long as there are adequate areas in the city that can provide for these EPFs. She stated that through this process, it has been determined that locally significant EPFs are not compatible with the single-family residential zones. The proposal is to prohibit locally significant EPFs from locations in the R-1,R-2, and R-3 zones. 2 07-09-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 4 Commissioner Beaulac asked about adding the Multi-Family residential zone to the R-1, R-2 or R-3 zones. Ms. Barlow explained that there are some EPFs designed to be in residential zones so it was determined that allowing these to be in the Multi-Family residential zone would meet the need for these locally significant EPFs to be located in a residential setting while still preserving the character of the other residential zones. Commissioner Beaulac asked for an example of what would be allowed in the Multi-Family residential zone for EPFs. Ms. Barlow explained a brief history of what prompted this amendment and gave an example of a small scale detox center. Commissioner Robinson requested clarification for facilities like NAOMI and other women's shelters. There was a short discussion on what services those shelters would need to provide to be considered and EPF. Commission Kaschmitter requested clarification on state and regional correctional facilities and if they could be included. Ms. Barlow answered that those would not be locally significant and they would have to go through the siting process with the Board of County Commissioners. She further explained the process that these EPFs would have to go through to determine the most suitable locations. The meeting was open up for public testimony. No public testimony was offered on this matter. The public hearing was closed at 6:32. Commissioner Kaschmitter moved to recommend approval of CTA-2020-0002 to City Council. Commissioner Beaulac stated that he would like to see Multi-Family residential added to the list of residential zones that EPFs could not locate in. Mr. Lamb provided clarification that an identified residential zone should be left as a potential zone for EPFs to locate. Chairman Johnson stated that these are essential services and moving them to a Multi-Family zone will make it more expensive to create these facilities. Commissioner McKinley stated that he is in favor of these facilities moving from the R-1,R-2, and R-3 zones. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: Commissioner Kelley read a statement regarding core values. He stated the importance of the commissioner's votes during the election of officers and for the comprehensive plan amendments. He asked the commissioners to bring their core values to each meeting. He welcomed the new commissioners to be a part of the conversation. Commissioner Robinson thanked everyone for their patience and stated that although she cannot change her vote on CPA-2020-0007 from the June 25,2020 meeting but she wishes she could. She provided further information as to why she's reached this decision and going forward she will be in support of the R-4 zone. Commissioner McKinley offered a reminder that tax returns are due Wednesday, July 15, 2020. He also thanked staff for their work on the EPFs. Commissioner Kaschmitter thanked the commission for caring about the community and thanked staff for their patience. Chairman Johnson thanked staff and mentioned that the commission should never question staffs motives. He stated he is in favor of medium density. XI.

There was no discussion. The vote on the motion was six in favor, zero against and the motion passed. d. Study Session: CTA-2020-0003,Nonconforming Use Code Text Amendment Senior Planner Lori Barlow gave a staff presentation. She explained that Chapter 19,25 of the SVMC regulates nonconforming uses and structures and defines what is considered a legal nonconforming use or structure. According to the code, nonconforming uses are uses or structures that were legally permitted under the applicable regulations at the time the use or structure came into existence and began lawful operations. At some point after the original setup, a change to the zoning code has occurred that has made the use or structure nonconforming. Under this section of the code, these nonconforming uses are allowed to continue and are subject to regulations of this chapter. The chapter also outlines the circumstances that a nonconforming use can be expanded. There are two reasons that the City has been prompted to look at this item. The first reason is regarding single family residential uses in a non-residential zoning district. In the applicability section of the code(19.25.010.04) states that existing legally established single- family residential uses located in a nonresidential zoning district are defined as a legal nonconforming use or structure. According to 19.25.020.02, if a structure is damaged by fire,flood, neglect, or act of nature more than eighty percent of the market value, it may not be rebuilt. This notation in the code is causing problems for residents to get financing to either refinance a current mortgage or get a new mortgage. Banks want to make sure that they can retain their value in the event of a disaster, Staff is proposing to make a change to item four of the applicability regulation that states"existing legally established single-family residential uses located in a nonresidential zoning district shall not be deemed nonconforming and shall be permitted as a legal use." Commissioner Beaulac joined the meeting at 6:25 pin. Ms.Barlow continued that the second reason that has prompted the code text amendment is regarding the ability for property owners to expand nonconforming uses. The current regulations state that nonconforming uses can be expanded within the boundaries of the original lot and any lot adjacent to the original lot if they meet all criteria laid out in the code. Staff is proposing to remove the language from the code allowing expansion onto adjacent lots. Nonconforming uses will continue to be allowed to expand only within the confines of the boundaries of the original lot. Commissioner Hanelce asked if a nonconforming use is only allowed to expand one time onto an adjacent lot. Ms. Barlow answered that staff interpretation would be that owners are limited to expand only one time onto an adjacent lot. However,this isn't a situation that has come up for review yet. However,the proposed amendment would limit expansions to only occur on the confines of the original lot and would prohibit expansion onto any adjacent locations. Commissioner Haneke and Commissioner McKinley expressed concern over the change because it would really limit businesses from growing. It's substantially less expensive to expand than relocate. 3 07-23-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 ol'4 Commissioner Haneke asked how many nonconforming residential units there are within the City limits. Ms. Barlow that she will try to get that data from the GIS analyst for the next meeting. Deputy City Attorney Lamb mentioned that this will also apply to all mining operations. Currently in the code,all mining within the City limits is considered a nonconforming use because mining really isn't appropriate within an urban setting. However, under the current regulations mining can be expanded onto adjacent properties if the owners purchase the land. This change will eliminate that ability. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: Commissioner Beaulac apologized for being late to the meeting. Commissioner Haneke and Commissioner Kaschmitter thanked staff for all of their hard work. XL ADJOURNMENT: Commissioner McKinley made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 6:54 pm. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against, and the motion passed.

Proposal Description: A city-initiated code text amendment to chapter 19.90 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) and SVMC 19.60.050 to prohibit locally significant Essential Public Facilities (EPFs)in the single-family residential zones,to allow EPFs in the Mixed Use Zone, and to address other housekeeping items. APPROVAL CRITERIA: Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,SVMC 17.80.150, 19.30.040. SUMMARY OF CONCLUSIONS: Staff concludes that the proposed amendments to chapter 19.90 SVMC and SVMC 19.60.050 are consistent with minimum criteria for review and approval, and consistent with the goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan. STAFF CONTACT: Lori Barlow, AICP, Senior Planner. REVIEWED BY: Jenny Nickerson, Building Official. ATTACHMENTS: Exhibit 1: Proposed Amendment APPLICATION PROCESSING: Chapter 17.80 SVMC,Permit Processing Procedures. The following table summarizes the procedural steps for the proposal. Process Date Department of Commerce 60-day Notice of Intent to June 15,2020 Adopt Amendment SEPA—DNS Issued June 19,2020 Published Notice of Public Hearing: June 19 and 26,2020 Background: EPFs are facilities that are typically difficult to site due to the use or resulting impacts. EPFs are defined in various state laws including RCW 47.06.140, 81.112.020 and 71.09.020. The Growth Management Act (GMA) requires cities to establish a process for identifying and siting EPFs. The State has identified a list of EPFs pursuant to WAC 364-196-550, which includes state and local correctional facilities,solid waste handling facilities, and in-patient facilities, which includes substance abuse facilities, mental health, group homes, and secure Staff Report and Recommendation CTA-2020-0002 community transition facilities. The City may not preclude the siting of EPFs within their jurisdiction. The City is signatory to the Interlocal Agreement regarding Siting of Essential Public Facilities within Spokane County with Spokane County,the City of Spokane, and other municipalities. The Interlocal Agreement defines the siting process applicable to EPFs. Generally speaking, a proponent submits a request for determination of appropriate siting process to the Spokane County Planning Department for a decision by the Board of County Commissioners(BOCC). If the use is determined to be an EPF of regional or statewide significance, the project will be sited using the regional siting process. This process utilizes a location analysis with significant public involvement that ultimately results in a ranking of the sites from the BOCC. If the EPF is determined to be locally significant, the EPF is sited through the local EPF siting process established by each jurisdiction. The city regulates EPFs pursuant to chapter 19.90 SVMC. The current regulations categorize the uses as statewide, regionally, or locally significant and identify the process as noted above. Additionally the regulations require all EPFs to receive a conditional use permit(CUP)pursuant to chapter 19.150 SVMC to address the unanticipated impacts of the use. Lastly, the permitted use matrix in SVMC 19.60.050 identifies the zones where EPFs are allowed. Currently EPFs are allowed in all zones except Mixed Use(MU)and Parks and Open Space(POS). Although the City cannot prohibit the siting of EPFs within the City limits,the City may prohibit the siting of EPFs in residential zones so long as there is adequate, appropriate land available in other zones. At this time the City is proposing a code text amendment to prohibit EPFs in the single-family residential zones and also proposed a reorganization of chapter 19.90 SVMC improve the clarity. ANALYSIS: Currently EPFs are allowed in all zones except MU and POS pursuant to SVMC 19.60.050,Table 1, Permitted Use Matrix(Table 1 below) and subject to a Conditional Use Permit pursuant to chapter 19.150 SVMC. Table 1 19.60.050 Permitted Uses Matrix Zones RI R2 R3 MFR MU CMU NC RC IMU I PO5 Public/Quasi-Public Community facilities PPP P P P PP PP P Essential public facilities R R R R R R R RR Public utility local distribution facility S SS S S S S P PP S Public utility transmission facility SSS S S S S S SS S Tower, wind turbine support S S SS The proposed amendment: 1. Prohibits locally significant EPFs from locating in single family residential zones because they are incompatible with residential uses. Page 2 of 5 Staff Report and Recommendation CTA-2020-0002 As noted above,EPFs are defined and categorized as such due to the necessity for such facilities and uses and the implicit challenges due to the impacts on surrounding properties. However, EPFs that primarily serve local populations may be categorized as locally significant. Locally significant EPFs are subject to City regulatory approval,which requires a CUP process. They are also currently allowed in all residential zones. The City has recently processed CUP's for several small scale substance abuse detoxification facilities determined to be locally significant through the siting process,one of which was proposed in a residential zone. The Hearing Examiner (HEX)determined through the CUP process that the facility was not compatible with the residential uses,due to the commercial nature of the service,traffic impacts,physical changes proposed to the site,and various operational impacts that included shift changes and even deliveries. The HEX denied the CUP, The decision for that project highlights the contradictory nature of allowing EPFs in single-family residential zones. While all EPFs have some level of challenge in fmding an appropriate site,the impacts are generally magnified in single-family residential zones due to the limited residential uses in such zones. The proposed amendment will prevent incompatible uses from locating within single family residential zones. 2. The proposed amendment is consistent with state laws. Pursuant to RCW 36.70A.200(1)Cities are required to establish a process for identifying and siting EPFs. Generally there is a distinction between EPFs of statewide and regional significance and locally significant EPFs. A City has more authority to zone locally significant EPFs and may preclude them from single family residential zones so long as they are allowed in at least one residential zone and other zones within the City. The proposed amendment precludes locally significant EPFs from the single family residential zones(R-1, R-2 and R-3) but allows the use in all other zones(MFR,MU,CMU, RC,NC, IMU, I) except POS. 3. Allows EPFs in multifamily residential zones and mixed use zones. The amendment recognizes that certain EPFs are designed to be located in residential zones,such as group homes or residential substance abuse treatment facilities, and continues to allow EPFs in the multi-family residential zone and mixed use zones where a wide range of residential uses are allowed.

FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO THE MUNICIPAL CODE TEXT AMENDMENT L Compliance with Title 17(General Provisions)of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code a. Findings: SVMC 17.80.150(F)Municipal Code Text Amendment Approval Criteria The City may approve a Municipal Code Text amendment if it finds that: i. The proposed text amendment is consistent with the applicable provisions of the Comprehensive Plan: Staff Analysis: The proposed amendment is supported by the Comprehensive Plan and is consistent with the following Comprehensive goals and policies: LU-G1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents,employees, and visitors CF-P19 Collaborate with Spokane County jurisdictions in determining the best locations for public and private essential public facilities. LU-P5 Ensure compatibility between adjacent residential and commercial or industrial uses LU-P7 Protect residential neighborhoods from incompatible land uses and adverse impacts associated with transportation corridors. H-P4 Enable the creation of housing for resident individuals and families needing assistance from social and human service providers. CF-G1 Coordinate with special districts, other jurisdictions, and the private sector to effectively and affordably provide facilities and services. ii. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relation to public health,safety, welfare,and protection of the environment: Staff Analysis: The proposed amendment bears substantial relation to public health, safety,welfare and protection of the environment. Precluding locally significant EPFs in the single family residential zones protects the character of the existing single family residential uses and allows those EPFs that have a residential component to located in other mixed use or high density residential zones. The proposed amendment protects residential neighborhoods from incompatible land uses and provides for EPFs that require a residential character. The amendment addresses community concerns and protects community character. The amendment will also direct locally significant EPFs into zones and sites more suitable and allow for more efficient processing and permitting of the necessary services they provide. b. Conclusion(s): The proposed text amendment is consistent with the approval criteria contained in the SVMC 17.80.150(F). 2. Finding and Conclusions Specific to Public Comments a. Findings: Page 4 of 5 Staff Report and Recommendation CTA-2020-0002 No public comments have been received to date. b.

On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. BACKGROUND:The Growth Management Act allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC).Consistent with state law and the SVMC,staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31, 2019. The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved and forwarded the 2020 Docket to the Planning Commission for their review and recommendation. On March 6, 2020, the Planning Commission held a study session on the proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. A public hearing on the proposed amendments was scheduled for March 26, 2020,but was canceled due to COVID-19 and state mandated regulations concerning holding remote meetings and adherence to prescribed social distancing. The Planning Commission process for the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments was restarted with an additional study session on June 11,followed by a public hearing held remotely on June 25,2020. In addition to the minimum legally required notice,the City issued a press release and sent direct emails to the Media,Comp Plan Updates,City News, and City Planning Commission Agenda distribution lists, for a total of 2,104 emails. The City also created a rotating banner on the City's homepage that linked to a webpage about the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendments. Finally,the City created and published social media posts on Facebook,Twitter and Linkedln about the public hearing. After the public hearing was closed on June 25,2020,the Planning Commission reviewed and deliberated on each of the proposed CPAs. On July 23, 2020, the Planning Commission voted on the following Findings and Recommendations to the City Council: • The Planning Commission voted 7-0 to forward to City Council a recommendation to approve CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002 and CPA-2020-0006. • The Planning Commission voted 7-0 to forward to City Council a recommendation to deny CPA- 2020-0003 and CPA-2020-0007. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS: None 1 of 2 OPTIONS: Discuss the Planning Commission recommendations. The City Council may accept, deny, or modify the Planning Commission recommendations. If the Council chooses to modify a proposal and the modifications are substantial, the City Council must either conduct a public hearing or refer the proposal back to the Planning Commission for further consideration. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Consensus to proceed to First Reading.

FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE SPOKANE VALLEY PLANNING COMMISSION FOR PROPOSED COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENTS CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003, CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 July 23,2020 A. Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31, 2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket.The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment will require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) 17.80.140 provides the framework for the public to participate throughout the Comprehensive Plan amendment process, including notice and public hearing requirements. 2. On November 25, 2019, the Department of Commerce was provided a notice of intent to adopt amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. 3. Pursuant to the State Environmental Policy Act,RCW 43.2IC(SEPA),and Title 21 SVMC, environmental checklists were required for proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments. 4. Staff reviewed the environmental checklists and issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS)for the Comprehensive Plan amendments on February 21,2020. 5. The Planning Commission finds the procedural requirements of SEPA and Title 21 SVMC have been fulfilled. 6. On March 6 and 13, 2020, notice for the proposed amendments was placed in the Spokane Valley News Herald and each site subject to an amendment was posted with a "Notice of Public Hearing"sign with a description of the proposal. 7. Individual notice of the map amendment proposals were mailed to all property owners within 400 feet of each proposed amendment site,except for CPA-2020-0007. 8. The duly noticed public hearing scheduled for March 26, 2020 was cancelled to COVID-19 and efforts to maximize social distancing. 9. On May 29 and June 5,2020 notice of the proposed amendments was placed in the Spokane Valley News Herald and each site subject to an amendment was posted with a"Notice of Public Hearing"sign with a description of the proposal. 10. On May 28,2020,notice of the map amendment proposals were mailed to all property owners within 400 feet of each proposed site,except for CPA-2020-0007. Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020- 0007 Page 1 of 3 11. Additional notice beyond the minimum legally required notice included, on June 18, 2020, the City issued a press release and sent a direct email to the Media and Comp Plan Updates distribution lists,283 and 336 email addresses respectively. On June 24,2020 another direct email was sent to the City News and City Planning Commission Agenda distribution lists, 722 and 763 email addresses respectively. Prior to the public hearing, the City created a rotating banner on the city's homepage that linked to a story in the"NEWS"page of the city website about the public hearing. The City created and published social media posts on Facebook,Twitter and Linkedln about the public hearing. 12. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed amendments concurrently to evaluate the cumulative impacts.The review was consistent with the annual amendment process outlined in SVMC 17.80.140 and chapter 36.70A RCW (Growth Management Act). 13. On June 25, 2020, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on the proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments. After receiving public testimony, the Planning Commission closed the public hearing and deliberated on the Comprehensive Plan amendments. While reviewing and deliberating on the Comprehensive Plan amendments, Planning Commission gave consensus as follows: a. CPA-2020-0001: 7-0 consensus to forward to City Council a recommendation of approval of CPA-2020-0001. b.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC).Consistent with state law and the SVMC,staff published notice on August 23 and 30,2019,advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019. The notice was also sent to all agencies,organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19,2019,the City Council approved the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket.The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment will require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0001. All findings in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA- 2020-0001. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare, and protection of the environment.The proposed amendment changing the land use designation from Single Family Residential (SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU)has a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors.It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue,and the north-south arterials."McDonald Road is an improved north-south Minor Arterial that is consistent with the description of the CMU designation. Additionally,the proposed amendment provides flexibility that can be used to support the applicant's indicated desire to expand the McDonald Professional Center use on the subject property.Changing the designation to CMU, increases the allowed types of uses to include office and parking. Increasing office and parking opportunities in the McDonald Road corridor has a substantial benefit to public health,safety,and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment.The Growth Management Act(GMA)adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations.The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of office use on a designated Minor Arterial with supporting infrastructure.The proposal is consistent with goals of GMA and the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies.The amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions from the 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan.However,the two parcels to the south of the proposed amendment were Attachment I-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page I of 4 changed from Office to CMU as part of the 2016 legislative update as part of a larger 2016 amendment to eliminate the Office designation,and the owner of the subject property is the same owner of the McDonald Professional Center. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan.While not directly identified as a deficiency,the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure.The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City: ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents,employees,and visitors. T-G2 Ensure that transportation planning efforts reflect anticipated land use patterns and support identified growth opportunities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow for expanded office and office related uses such as parking.The change could result in more intensive development in the future,though the site immediately to the south is vacant and designated and zoned CMU.There is no concern on the effect of the physical environment. 8. The effect on open space,streams, rivers, and lakes; There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas.The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction,and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues.The City's critical areas ordinance ensures adequate protection of critical areas and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is adjacent to CMU to the south and MFR to the east.To the north and west are existing single family homes on SFR designated properties. If approved,the development of the site will be subject to the transitional regulations that will ensure protection of the adjacent homes to the north and south. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the south and east. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal.Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks, recreation,and schools: McDonald Road is a Minor Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change.While the subject property was not considered in the 2016 legislative update,the property immediately to the south was part of the 2016 analysis.The projected LOS for McDonald Road in 2040 is A- C,and no mitigations or transportation projects are planned for this section of McDonald Road within the 20-year planning horizon. Additionally,the subject property is approximately 0.5 acres and its overall impact to the transportation system is minimal. Attachment 1-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 The subject property and the property immediately to the south are considered infill development, as such,the expansion of office in this area is ideal because of the supporting infrastructure that is in place. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property to support the expansion of the McDonald Professional Center,increasing employment opportunities and growing the City's economy.The change will benefit the City and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 0.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City.While additional demand for CMU property may be limited,the CMU designation in this location allows for the expansion of an existing office development on the McDonald Road corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: There is one dwelling unit proposed to be removed.While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur and therefore the City would lose one single family house as a result of the amendment.The change is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. There will be no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan,including Housing,Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission fmds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0001. The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0001. Approved this 23ra day of July,2020.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations,and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan:four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0002. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0002 Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety, welfare, and protection of the environment. The proposed amendment provides the opportunity to aggregate parcels creating greater depth to provide for a larger format structure.Based on the application,the intent is to combine the two Regional Commercial (RC) parcels to the south with the proposal. Both the Industrial(I)and RC designations and zoning districts allow for intensive uses.Providing opportunity for development and redevelopment where there is existing infrastructure has a substantial benefit to public health,safety,and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to aggregate parcels in an area that is already served by supporting infrastructure. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals.The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan.While not identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan includes the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure.The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City by: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 3 ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to RC will allow uses similarly allowed along the Sprague corridor. The change may result in a more people-oriented active use in the area versus a vacant or industrial use, but the intensity would be similar to existing nearby uses. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space,streams, rivers,and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas, frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed when future development occurs and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is adjacent to RC to the west and south; and Ito the north and east. To the north are existing industrial developments and users. To the south is a vacant used motor vehicle sales lot that is under the same ownership. To the west is Home Depot. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks, recreation,and schools: Sprague Avenue is a Principal Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change.The 20-year Transportation Improvement Plan identifies a concrete intersection at Sprague and Fancher by 2039. The existing and projected LOS for this segment of Sprague Avenue is D within City's adopted standard. Additionally, the change from Ito RC is expected to have a minimal impact to the transportation network and other utilities. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property to be combined with the two properties fronting Sprague Avenue, increasing employment opportunities and growing the city's economy. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-G 1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 3 LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 3 acres of RC property to the 809 acres of existing RC designated property within the city. As of 2018, there are approximately 111 acres of vacant RC property within the city. The amendment allows for commercial development on the Sprague Avenue corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under RC standards the type of use and density will be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Under the existing conditions the subject property is a paved vacant lot.It appears the property was used in conjunction with the RC designated property to the south for used motor vehicle sales, which is presently vacant. The change of the property from I to RC will not impact current or projected population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The RC designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0002.The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC).Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations,and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan:four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0003. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0003. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80140(H)(1): 2. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as "allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily,and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials." The subject properties are between CMU properties to the west, east, and south. Access is provided by Union Road via Mission Avenue.Mission Ave is a Minor Arterial.Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area. The Planning Commission finds that the potential for increased density in the area may result in safety concerns related to the transportation infrastructure along Union Road, it does not find the amendment bears a substantial relationship to public health, safety,and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is generally consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations.The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of the multiple family development on the site and the opportunity to provide the neighborhood with access to daily goods and services in a centralized area with adequate public facilities; there are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area to improve capacity. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals.The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the comprehensive plan. However, the Planning Commission finds that impacts on the local access street of Union Road have not been adequately considered and have further found that changing the land used designation to CMU may increase access concerns along Union. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. While the Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 4 amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions beyond the owner's control, the 2016. legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan eliminated the Office designation generally replacing it with the CMU designation, which was the case for the parcels to the west, east, and south.While the 2016 plan changed the designation of the surrounding vacant lands from Office to CMU, the properties subject to the amendment request had a multifamily development and the designation of Multifamily was not changed. The CMU designation provides more flexibility than the Office and Multifamily designations. The changing of the surrounding properties from Office to CMU created a situation whereby the subject properties may not use their property to the similarly situated properties to the west,east,and south. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment adds diminutive capacity to the CMU designation; all three parcels have existing structures and two have multifamily developments on them. Changing the designation from MFR to CMU on an existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on developed parcels using pre-existing infrastructure and provide flexibility to add service related retail to the area that may be supported by the multifamily housing. While the proposal does not address a direct deficiency,the Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policies that support the proposed change: LU-G 1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-G1 Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as commercial, office and higher residential development of the properties. The properties will have the opportunity to transition, add density and add a mix of uses to serve the surrounding neighborhood. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space. streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas.The parcels are not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The 6.25-acre site is currently developed with a multifamily development and one single-family home. The adjacent use to the south is single-family, to the west self-storage, to the east office, multifamily and vacant CMU.The CMU land use designation surrounds the proposed amendment site to the west, east, and north. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations. Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 If approved future development of the site will be subject to the transitional provisions adopted in the development regulations. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the west, east, and south. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks, recreation,and schools: Mission Avenue is a Minor Arterial. There are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area, one of which is the intersection capacity improvement and signal modification at Pines/Mission. Site-specific improvements and their impact to this project would be identified through the development review process,and development on the parcels within the Mirabeau Subarea Study area. The subject properties are considered infill development, as such,the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. However, the Planning Commission finds that impacts on the local access street of Union Road have not been adequately considered and have further found that changing the land use designation to CMU may increase access concerns along Union. The Planning Commission concludes that Union Road is not adequate to support the proposed change. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region: The proposed change would allow the property to increase density and support infill development in an area planned for growth. The change may support increased housing opportunities, office, employment, or access to daily goods and services. The change benefits the neighborhood, city, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-Gl Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 6.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the city. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited, the CMU designation in this place would allow for increased options for development including retail services serving the existing multifamily development.The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area. This proposed amendment is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities, Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations,and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan:four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0006. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0006. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.1 40(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment. The proposed amendment provides more flexibility of uses on a property allowing East Valley School District (EVSD) to broaden and enhance their educational service mission. Under the Industrial zone educational activities are limited to professional, vocational and trade schools. While this may continue to be an essential component to EVSD curriculum,flexibility is needed to meet existing and future demand for other educational services. Changing the designation to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU), increases the allowed types of educational services legally permitted to occur in the existing facility. Increasing educational opportunities to local youth has a substantial benefit to public health,safety, and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to strengthen EVSD mission to provide for education of local youth in an area with adequate public facilities.The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. The amendment does respond to a substantial change in conditions from 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan.At that time the subject parcel was not changed from the designation in place since at least 2014.Since the 2016 legislative update,EVSD has experienced changes in enrollment and interest in vocational education, under the existing designation only professional, vocational and trade schools are allowed in the Industrial designation changing the designation to CMU allows EVSD to adapt the educational services they provide in a location they own and have made Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 3 substantial improvements for educational purposes.The demographic and interest shifts are beyond EVSD control the proposed change allows them to continue to serve district educational needs. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan.While not directly identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goal and policy that support workforce development and education, which are integral to the long-term success of the City: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. Findings.for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as more expanded educational uses. The change could result in more intensive development in the future, though the site is currently developed.There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space,streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas, frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is generally surrounded by Spokane Industrial Park to the north and east; however, the property is not part of the Spokane Industrial Park.The property to the south is designated and zoned CMU.The institutional use on the proposed site is generally compatible with both the light industrial uses to the north and east and the retail service uses to the south.The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhoods is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks, recreation,and schools: B Street is a local access street and Sullivan Road is a Principal Arterial. There are two capacity related projects in the 6-year TIP near the project area: intersection improvement at Sullivan and Wellesley and improvement to Sullivan and SR 290(Trent)interchange. The subject properties are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region: The proposed change would allow the property and structure owned by EVSD to be used for educational purposes beyond professional, vocational and trade school use, increasing the school district's ability to provide educational services. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-000l,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 3 ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 9 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited,the CMU designation allows for additional educational uses,which has been indicated as needed from EVSD. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Under the existing conditions and the Industrial designation there is very little population that resides in the area.While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential. development would occur. The proposed change in land use designation is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goal and policy identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan,including Land Use,Transportation,and Housing,Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0006.The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approval the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0006. Approved this 23rd day of July,2020. AtIleti James Johnson,Chairman ATTEST . ,k Deanna Horton,Planning Commission Secretary Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 3 of 3 ATTACHMENT 5 FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE SPOKANE VALLEY PLANNING COMMISSION FOR PROPOSED COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT CPA-2020-0007 July 23,2020 A. Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019. The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations,and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan:four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0007. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0007. 2. In regards to noticing,the Planning Commission finds that the City met all legal requirements for notice for CPA 2020-0007. The Planning Commission finds that the City provided notice above legal requirements in the form of press releases, social media releases, and email list releases. However, Planning Commission finds that given the scope of the impact of the proposed amendment, additional noticing would have been beneficial as indicated by the relatively limited number of public comments received. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 3. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. Housing is an important component of the economic infrastructure of the city. Ensuring that there is a variety of housing types is an important competitive advantage for economic development. The proposed amendment will allow the City to more closely align its housing needs with locations within the City to ensure adequate infrastructure is available. This will also enable the provision of quality,affordable housing for all Spokane Valley residents. 4. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The GMA provides that the housing element serves to encourage the availability of affordable housing to residents of all economic backgrounds, promote a variety of residential densities and housing types, and encourage the preservation of existing neighborhoods. The proposed amendment will provide increased housing options in locations that have adequate infrastructure that can affordably support increased densities. The Planning Commission finds that additional noticing would serve the GMA's requirements to allow for effective public participation. 5. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. The amendment is Attachment 5-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA- 2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 4 not related to a specific piece of property.This amendment looks to incentivize alternative housing development where there is frequent transit and commercial services. 6. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 7. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan identifies that the city will need an additional 6,389 homes by 2037 (3,962 single family homes and 2,417 multifamily). The plan also identifies that the median household income in the city was about$2,000 less than the average countywide annual earnings.Additional data indicates that residents are cost-burdened with 51% of renters and 26% of homeowners spending at least 33 percent of their monthly budget on rent or mortgage payments.The following adopted goals,policies,and strategy support the proposed amendment: H-GI Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. Strategy: Continue to evaluate new housing typologies to meet market needs. Findings for Factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 8. The effect upon the physical environment: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and as a non site-specific amendment does not have a direct effect on the physical environment. Future development that may result will be evaluated under city regulations for physical development. 9. The effect on open space,streams,rivers,and lakes: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and does not have a direct effect on open space, streams, rivers and lakes. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 10. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and includes implementing development regulations that are aimed to protect neighborhood character and locate alternative housing in areas with frequent transit and commercial services. The Planning Commission finds that increasing the density in the R-3 zoning district from six dwelling units per acres to eight dwelling units per acre as identified in the proposed implementing regulations would have a negative impact on the quality of life for residents in those areas by potentially increasing crime and decreasing property values. 11. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation,and schools: Capital Facilities Policy CF-P6 recommends that facilities and services meet minimum Level of Service (LOS) Standards. LOS standards have been adopted for water, sewer, transportation, stormwater, law enforcement,libraries,parks,street cleaning,public transit,fire,and schools.The proposed amendment seeks to take advantage of available infrastructure to minimize the need to develop and maintain new infrastructure. 12. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region: Increasing housing options that protect neighborhood character and minimize the need for new infrastructure can potentially reduce housing costs and thereby reducing the amount of city residents paying more than 33 percent of their income toward housing, which would benefit the Attachment 5-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA- 2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 neighborhood, city and region. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-P8 Provide and maintain an infrastructure system that supports Spokane Valley's economic development priorities. LU-Gl Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-G4 Ensure that land use plans, regulations, review processes, and infrastructure improvements support economic growth and vitality LU-P 14 Enable a variety of housing types. LU-P 16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. 13. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposed amendment does not change the location or quantity of land designations. Implementing changes to the zoning code may increase densities in locations with adequate infrastructure support, and may reduce densities in other locations. Any future change would be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecasted. 14. The current and projected population density in the area: The implementing regulations may increase density in areas that are supported by adequate infrastructure and may reduce densities in other locations.The proposed amendment is not expected to have significant impacts to population density on a citywide level.Implementing regulations will be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecasted. 15. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The proposed amendment will support the Comprehensive Plan's housing goals, policies, and strategies. The amendment will not have a direct impact on other Comprehensive Plan elements. Implementing regulations will be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecast. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0007 except for the need for additional notice above what is legally required and the negative impacts from the increase in density in the R-3 zone. The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council deny the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0007. Approved this 23rd day of July, 2020.

ADMINISTRATIVE REPORT: Building Official Nickerson thanked the commission for adjusting to the new Zoom meeting platform. VIII. PUBLIC COMMENT: There was no public comment. IX. COMMISSION BUSINESS: a. Study Session: CTA-2020-0001: A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) 19.180,Newly Annexed Areas Economic Development Manager Mike Basinger gave a presentation to the commission explaining the city initiated code text amendment that will amend Chapter 19.180 of the SVMC to clarify the process and criteria to annex adjacent and contiguous areas into the city and to ensure that the fiscal impacts of providing the facilities, utilities, services, and maintenance of the annexation area are adequately considered prior to annexation. Deputy City Attorney Erik Lamb provided additional information regarding annexation. He explained that the amendment will clarify the annexation process for the three types of 1 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 2 of 6 annexation requests: voter initiated, City Council initiated and direct petition. It will outline the criteria that will be evaluated including existing and new facilities, services, expenses and revenues. It will also clearly identify the process to address zoning upon annexation. Chair Johnson asked for clarification regarding zoning for specific parcels as they request to annex into the city limits. Mr. Basinger answered that when the city annexes a property it is zoned with a designation that is the most similar to its current designation with the County. It will then be brought through the amendment process to evaluate what the zoning should be and go through the public process to make that final designation. Chairman Johnson asked for information regarding financial impact. He asked if a property would still be considered for annexation if it is found that the tax value received would be lower than the cost to the city. Mr. Basinger answered that this criteria will just be used as guidelines for the Council to consider when they make those decisions regarding annexation. b. Study Session: CTA Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments Mr. Basinger explained that local jurisdictions are allowed to make amendments to the Comprehensive Plan once each year. There are five proposed amendments that will be considered during 2020; four map amendments and one text amendment. A public hearing will be held on June 25,2020. Notice of hearing will be published twice prior to the fifteen day requirement, the site was posted with a"Notice of Hearing" sign, and individual notice was mailed to all residents within a 400 foot radius of the subject properties. After the public hearing,the request will move to Council where they will review Planning Commission findings, consider the public hearing, and approve/modify/deny the request. The floor was given to Senior Planner Chaz Bates to discuss the details of each proposed amendment. CPA-2020-0001: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential(SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates said that this amendment is privately initiated for the property located at 1311 N McDonald Road, between Mission and Broadway. It is owned by Land Use Solutions and Entitlement. The request is to rezone the property from single-family residential (R-3)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The property to the east is zoned multi-family, the property to the south is corridor mixed use, and the west and south are zoned single family residential. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site, the site would support the redevelopment of the parcel, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0002: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation,from Industrial(I)to Regional Commercial(RC) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC). 2 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 6 Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located off of Sprague and Fancher and is owned by Lawrence B. Stone Properties. The request is to convert the zoning on 3 acres of land from Industrial (I)to Regional Commercial (RC). The properties to the north are zoned industrial and the property to the south and the west are regional commercial. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the site is completely paved, and the change would support redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0003: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located north of Mission and west of Pines and is owned by Jay Rambo. The request is to convert the zoning of 6.24 acres from Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The properties to the west is corridor mixed use, the north is industrial, the east is corridor mixed use and the south is single family residential. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the site supports redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. A trip generation and distribution letter was completed by the City of Spokane Valley's Senior Engineer and shows a net increase of traffic volumes of one car during the PM peak hour. All other times of the day remain the same. Commissioner Haneke asked if the developer wants to build additional apartment buildings on the property and expressed concern about traffic flow in the area. Mr. Bates answered that this zoning designation would allow for additional multifamily dwelling units or retail. Attorney Lamb responded that the analysis done for this change shows the change from multi-family to corridor mixed use, it is not for a specific proposal. The current zoning of multi-family allows for a significant amount of trips. Corridor mixed use zoning will add more flexibility of uses but according to the traffic study it should not impact the traffic flow more than one car during the peak PM period. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked about the open space requirement for corridor mixed use designation. Building Official Nickerson responded that there are different requirements in the current Spokane Valley Municipal code between multifamily versus corridor mixed use zones. Multifamily does require open space but corridor mixed use does not. If open space was still required,Mission Park would provide the multifamily open space requirement. CPA-2020-0006: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU)and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a city-initiated request to change the 9 acre property located at 3830 N Sullivan Rd from Industrial (I)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The property is owned by East Valley School District(EVSD) and currently houses the district's Walker Center. This location includes the EVSD administrative services and maintenance 3 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 6 building. The properties to the west,north, and east are all industrial uses, and to the south are retail service and industrial uses. Findings show that there are no critical areas, supports expanded educational uses, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding areas. The proposed amendment allows flexibility so that that EVSD can provide educational services in this location. Education services are prohibited in the industrial zone and EVSD would like to move their Parent/Partner program to this location. CPA-2020-0007: Amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to provide policy guidance for increased housing density with access to support services like transit and commercial services, and provide implementing regulations. Mr. Basinger said that this is a city initiated text amendment that will apply city-wide. It will address alternative housing types such as duplexes, cottages, and townhomes. It is policy language that will help protect residential neighborhoods by incentivizing alternative housing in areas that are supported by existing infrastructure. Staff is proposing an area-wide rezone in hopes to address concerns from the residents regarding the influx of duplex developments and provide appropriate locations for alternative housing. The objective of this amendment is to address those concerns by creating areas that can support denser housing because of its location to transit and services. The vision is that there will be a larger variety of housing types available for residents and will help with housing affordability. The proposal will rezone 1218 acres within the City limits to the new zoning district, R-4. There is 57 vacant acres and 67 acres that are partially used. Studies show that there is potential for 1240 housing units which would lead to 3100 new residents. The proposed area is surrounded by multifamily and corridor mixed use zoning districts. The code text amendment will create the R-4 zone in the code and provide a description and outline permitted uses. The change specifies that duplex development in the R-3 zone shall have a minimum lot size of 14,500 square feet. There is also an additional text change in the Appendix A definitions that states that townhouses are not considered multifamily. Mr. Basinger stated that staff's analysis shows that single family development will incentivize the R-3 zone because the change will allow eight single family units per acre. The new R-4 zone will promote development of alternative housing types in those areas where transit and services are available giving a greater variety of housing types in areas that can handle an influx of residents. Commissioner McKinley asked what the ultimate intent is for the amendment. Mr. Basinger answered that the vision is to offer a variety of alternative housing within the city. Staff is optimistic that due to the density change in this amendment, the City might see some cottage or townhome developments that would offer more affordable options. Commissioner Robinson asked if the city will be looking to add additional open space or parks into the urban area to help accommodate some of the additional residents that will be brought into the high density area. Mr. Bates answered that this proposed change will accommodate the level of parks services with this change. The level of service is driven by the number of residents in the area so more people will need more parks space. Mr. Basinger responded that the majority of the properties in the proposed R-4 area will be associated with the Appleway Trail which will allow the residents to have access to that 4 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 5 of 6 linear path throughout the city. The city considers that to be a linear park and the intention is to improve the park as funds become available. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked if the Appleway Trail could be extended. She also asked if Spokane Transit Authority is considering making their services more frequent in this area. Mr. Basinger answered that there are plans to extend the Appleway Trail to Dishman Hills. The Transit Authority is optimistic that they would be able to extend their services as more development happens. They feel that more demand would drive them to offer additional services. Commissioner Beaulac asked about the notification process for the properties affected by this change. Mr. Basinger answered that the public hearing has been published twice in the newspaper, it will be sent to the Comprehensive Plan distribution list that includes any person that has ever signed up to receive notifications about comprehensive plan changes (approximately 370 people),it will be published on all of the City's social media platforms, and a media release will be sent out prior to the public hearing. Chairman Johnson asked for clarification about sending notification out regarding the City- wide rezone. Mr. Basinger responded that the City does not send out letters to individual property owners when a City-wide rezone is done. However, staff hopes that the additional notices on social media,press releases, and the distribution list will get the word out to the residents about the change. c. Study Session: CTA-2020-0002.A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code 19.90,Essential Public Facilities. Senior Planner Lori Barlow gave a presentation on the city-initiated code text amendment to amend regulations on essential public facilities (EPF). The proposal is to prohibit locally significant essential public facilities in residential zones. She explained that essential public facilities are facilities that are typically hard to site because of their size and the nature of their use. These facilities include state and local correctional facilities, solid waste handling facilities, in-patient facilities which includes substance abuse facilities, mental health group homes and secure community transition facilities. Pursuant to the Growth Management Act, cities and counties are required to have procedures to site essential public facilities. They can't be precluded from being allowed within the city limits. However, the City can control the zones where they are located. This request is to preclude all of the residential zones; R-1, R-2, and R-3. The reason for this change is because there have been numerous detoxification facilities proposed within the City limits in the last few years. There was a controversial public hearing held recently for a detoxification center that wanted to move into a residential zone. Staff made the decision that it would be appropriate to look at making a change to limit the zones where these types of facilities can be sited. The City regulates essential public facilities pursuant to chapter 19.90 SVMC. The current regulations stipulate that a conditional use permit(CUP)is required for all essential public facilities to address any possible impacts. Currently, essential public facilities are allowed in all zones except mixed use and parks and open space. Chairman Johnson asked if the new R-4 zone would also be included. 5 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 6 of 6 Ms. Barlow answered that the City will probably look to exclude that zone if it is created but the current code text amendment only addresses the zones that are in the code right now. Chairman Johnson asked the timeframe for this amendment. Ms. Barlow answered that the public hearing will be held in July, the findings of fact at the following meeting and then moving onto the City Council for their review and decision. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: The Commissioners welcomed Commissioner Haneke to the board. Commissioner McKinley asked for an update regarding opening the City Hall for in person meetings. Ms. Nickerson answered that the governor's order for COVID phase three does include allowing face-to-face with customers for government facilities. However,there is no date yet for when phase three will begin. The City has begun preparations for when opening does happen and is putting protocols in place to keep people safe while they are in City Hall. XI. ADJOURNMENT: Commissioner McKinley made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 8:06 pm. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against, and the motion passed.

The Public Hearing was opened at 6:27 pm. Economic Development Manager Mike Basinger explained that local jurisdictions are allowed to make amendments to the Comprehensive Plan once each year. There are five proposed amendments that will be considered during 2020; four map amendments and one text amendment. This evening is the public hearing. He explained that the Findings of Fact will be heard by the Planning Commission on July 23, 2020 and then the amendments will advance to the City Council for their three reviews. The process for Comprehensive Plan amendments includes staff facilitating the amendments, conducting the review and analysis of each proposal,preparing the staff reports, and public notices. The Planning Commission conducts the public hearing and makes a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council reviews the Planning Commission's findings and deliberations, considers public comments and makes the decision to approve/modify or deny the request. Notice of public hearing was published twice prior to the fifteen day requirement, the sites are posted with a "Notice of Hearing" sign for site specific map amendments, and individual notice was mailed to all residents within a 400 foot radius of the subject properties. Email notification regarding the public hearing was also sent out to the Comprehensive Plan Amendment, Planning Commission, and City Council distribution lists. A notice was posted to the City website in two separate locations including the home page and the news section of the website, a notice was published on the City's social media sites including Facebook,Twitter and Linkedln pages, and a press release was sent out on June 18'2020. It was explained that public testimony will be held at the end of each proposed amendment. CPA-2020-0001: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential(SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Senior Planner Chaz Bates said that this amendment is privately initiated for the property located at 1311 N McDonald Road, between Mission and Broadway. It is owned by Land Use Solutions and Entitlement. The request is to change the land use designation/rezone the property from single-family residential (R-3)to CMU. The property to the east is zoned multi-family,the property to the south is CMU, and the west and south are zoned SFR. Mr. Bates explained that McDonald Road is an improved minor arterial road with sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides, it has a center turn lane and'single traffic lane in both directions. The CMU designation is used on north/south arterials such as McDonald Road and the proposal is consistent with the CMU description in the Comprehensive Plan. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site, the site would support the redevelopment of the parcel, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding uses. Mr. Bates stated that the City did not receive any comments from outside agencies and only received one public comment regarding the proposal. The submitter was not opposed to the project as discussed in the application but was unhappy with the openness of the CMU zoning. The meeting was opened up for public testimony. Chairman Johnson read the guidelines for public testimony. 2 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 9 Dwight Hume, Spokane: Mr. Hume is the agent for the landowner and stated that he has reviewed the staff report and finds that it is consistent with what he submitted. He explained that this change will enable the owner to expand his building because there is pressure to have more services at that site. The owner would like to be able to utilize property that he already owns and provide additional services at an already established location. They plan to use this portion of the site for parking when they expand the building that is already on the adjacent lot. No additional public testimony was offered on this matter. CPA-2020-0002: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located at 5901 E Sprague Avenue and is owned by Lawrence B. Stone Properties. The request is to convert the land use designation/zoning on 2.98 acres of land from Industrial to RC. The properties to the north are zoned Industrial and the property to the south and the west RC. Findings show that there are no critical areas,the site is completely paved, and the change would support redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. The City did not receive any comments from outside agencies or public comment on the proposal. The meeting was opened for public testimony. Ed Lukas, Spokane: Mr. Lucas is the real estate transaction director for the property owner, Larry Stone. He stated that he concurs with the staff report and feels that this would be an appropriate change to the Comprehensive Plan. No additional public testimony was offered on this matter. CPA-2020-0003: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for three parcels located north of Mission and west of Pines and is owned by Revere-Dece III Inv, LLC &Brill Properties, LLC. The request is to convert the land use designation/zoning of 6.24 acres from MFR to CMU. The properties to the west is CMU,the north is Industrial, the east is CMU and the south is SFR. The properties currently have an existing 240 unit multifamily development and if approved would allow increased flexibility and density of the property and may increase redevelopment potential of the vacant lot to the southwest. The property is directly accessed by Union Road and Mission Avenue. Mission Avenue is designated a minor arterial road. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the site supports redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. Based on a comment received from Washington State Department of Transportation(WSDOT),the City's Senior Traffic Engineer completed a trip generation and distribution letter which shows a net increase of traffic volumes of one car during the PM peak hour. All other times of the day remain the same. No other agency comments or public comment were received. 3 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 4 Chairman Johnson asked for additional information on the trip generation letter. Senior Traffic Engineer Jerremy Clark responded that he did an analysis that included the capacity of the lot for maximum build-out of multi-family versus the maximum build out of the existing multifamily plus additional CMU possibilities to come up with the net increase in traffic volumes of one car. Commissioner Haneke expressed concern about the possibility of unlimited density in the CMU zoning and feels that that there could be substantially more than 22 units per acres if this amendment is approved. Mr. Bates responded that the CMU zone has additional flexibility and uses that can be developed. The designation would allow commercial or retail use in that location as well as housing units. He also explained that this proposal is not for a development specific project, it is just for a land use change. Any impact related to development specific project will be reviewed when they are submitted. Commissioner Beaulac asked about possible future road improvements in the area. Senior Engineer Clark answered that there is a project underway right now to improve the current footprint of Pines Road and Mission Avenue. Once additional funding is available, the improvements will include a southbound turn lane from Pines onto Mission. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked if there is an additional exit on this property. Mr. Bates answered that there is another exist onto Nora Avenue going towards Wilbur Road. Commissioner Kelly commented that he went to this location and found the exit onto Nora Avenue chained and locked. The meeting was opened for public testimony. Secretary Horton read into the record a comment from Greg Figg with WSDOT. The comment was in regards to both CPA-2020-0003 and CPA-2020-0006. The comment stated that the change to land use would not result in a significant increase in traffic from what the current zoning allows. No additional public testimony was offered on this matter. CPA-2020-0006: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation front Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a City-initiated request to change the 8.81 acres property located at 3830 N Sullivan Rd from Industrial to CMU. The property is owned by East Valley School District (EVSD) and currently houses the District's Walker Center. This location includes the EVSD administrative services and maintenance building, but it also includes classrooms. The properties to the west, north, and east are all industrial uses, and to the south are retail service and industrial uses zoned CMU. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the changes supports expanded educational uses, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding areas. The proposed amendment allows flexibility so that that EVSD can provide educational services in this location. Education services are prohibited in the industrial zone and EVSD would like to move their Parent/Partner program to this location. Comments were received from WSDOT requesting additional traffic information. A trip generation and distribution letter was completed showing details on both the designation of educational use and CMU. The CMU designation shows that the change would result in one additional net trip. Changing the use 4 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 5 of 4 to educational would create a decrease in trips. The letter summed up that sufficient roadway capacity exists. The City did not receive any additional agency or public comments. The meeting was opened up for public testimony. Secretary Horton read into the record a comment from Greg Figg with WSDOT. The comment was in regards to both CPA-2020-0003 and CPA-2020-0006. The comment stated that the change to land use would not result in a significant increase in traffic from what the current zoning allows. CPA-2020-0007: Amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to provide policy guidance for increased housing density with access to support services like transit and commercial services, and provide implementing regulations. Mr. Basinger said that this is a City initiated text amendment that will apply City-wide. It will address alternative housing types such as duplexes, cottages, and townhomes. It is policy language that will help protect residential neighborhoods by incentivizing alternative housing in areas that are supported by existing infrastructure. Staff is proposing an area-wide rezone in hopes to address concerns from the residents regarding the influx of duplex developments and provide appropriate locations for alternative housing. The objective of this amendment is to address those concerns by creating areas that can support denser housing because of its location to transit and services. The vision is that there will be a larger variety of housing types available for residents and will help with housing affordability. The proposal will rezone 1218 acres within the City limits to the new zoning district,R-4. There are 57 vacant acres and 67 acres that are partially used in the designated are between 8t1' Avenue and Broadway, between Park and Sullivan. This change could allow for a net change of 496 new housing units and it could allow for a net of 1240 new residences. The proposed change area has 130 parcels that are less than half an acres, there are 36 parcels that are one to two acres, seven parcels that are two to three acres, and two parcels are three to five acres. There are no parcels that are greater than five acres. The proposed area is surrounded by Multifamily and CMU zoning districts. The code text amendment will create the R-4 zone in the municipal code and provide a description and outline permitted uses. The change specifies that duplex development in the R-3 zone shall have a minimum lot size of 14,500 square feet. The change outlines that assisted living/nursing homes, cottage developments and townhomes will no longer be permitted in the R-3 zone. There is also an additional text change in the Appendix A-Definitions that states that townhouses are not considered a multifamily product. Mr. Basinger stated that staffs analysis shows that single family development will incentivize the R-3 zone because the change will allow eight single family units per acre. The new R-4 zone will promote development of alternative housing types in those areas where transit and services are available giving a greater variety of housing types in areas that can handle an influx of residents. There were no staff or agency comments received on this change and there were two comments received from the public. Commissioner Beaulac expressed concern about the parcel owners not being directly notified about this proposed change. He feels that the staff should have sent notification to the affected parcels. 5 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 6 of 9 Commissioner Kaschmitter asked if nursing/retirement homes that are already located in R-3 zones will continue to be allowed. Mr. Bates answered that these properties will be classified as legal non-conforming uses. Commissioner Johnson asked how much it would cost to send notification to everyone within 400 feet of the properties being rezoned. Mr. Basinger answered that this area is a very large zone and it would be a very large mailing. According to the RCW code,the noticing requirements have been sufficiently met and staff has added several additional means of notification to get word out to the residents. The meeting was opened for public testimony. John Conard,Liberty Lake: Mr. Conard expressed support for the new R-4 zoning classification to develop single-story townhouses and said that he is excited by the opportunities this could open for the City. Secretary Horton read three letters into the record: Barry Beck, Spokane Valley: Mr. Beck expressed support of the proposed amendment and encouraged adoption of the change. Pete Miller, Spokane Valley: Ms. Miller expressed that this change will provide welcome relief to the residents in the R-3 zone and requested full support from the Commission of the amendment. Stephanie Woodruff, Spokane Valley: Ms. Woodruff expressed concern about the influx of apartments, duplexes and rental homes being built in the Valley. She encouraged the Commission to pass the amendment. No additional public testimony was offered. The public hearing was closed at 7:23 pm. Commissioner Kelley moved for the Commission to take a ten minute break. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. Discussion regarding CPA-2020-0001: Commissioner Kelley read a statement and provided four pictures of McDonald Rd. He expressed that residents would not be putting themselves at risk walking to and from the medical office building or driving in/out of the proposed parking lot. He also stated that the developer, Tucker Roy LLC did a great job with the original building on the property and feels that the reason they are outgrowing the location is due to the high quality work they put into the location and their determination to support City residents. He is pleased that there are developers like Tucker Roy, LLC interested in reinvesting in the City and stated that he will support the request. (Statement and pictures provided by Commissioner Kelly are attached to the public record). Commissioners Johnson and Robinson expressed support for the request. Discussion regarding CPA-2020-0002: Commissioners McKinley, Kaschmitter, Haneke, Commissioner Beaulac and Johnson all expressed support for the request. Commissioner Robinson asked if the change would force landscaping requirements during the development process. Building Official Nickerson answered that the Industrial zone did not require landscape but the change to Regional Commercial does require landscaping. Storm water management will be addressed during the building process. 6 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 7 of 9 Commissioner Robinson stated that she supported the request. Commissioner Kelley read a statement saying that he would be voting to approve the amendment based on three goals and objectives: to promote development of vacant and underutilized property,to support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed use district to accessible district that promote economic activity and to support the employment growth in the City. (Statement is attached to the public record). Discussion regarding CPA-2020-0003: Commissioner Kelly read a statement saying that he does not support the amendment due to traffic concerns on Union Road and Mission Avenue and because it fails to meet the goals and objections set forth to guide the Commission in their decision making process. (Statement is attached to the public record). Commissioners Beaulac, Haneke, Robinson, McKinley, Johnson and Kaschmitter all expressed concerned about the width of Union Road. They feel that there needs to be improvements done on Union Road to widen the street or to prohibit street parking if there's going to be additional development utilizing this road. They were not in favor of this amendment. The Commission came to a consensus not to recommend approval of this amendment to the Comprehensive Plan. Discussion regarding CPA-2020-0006: Commissioners Kaschmitter, Haneke, Beaulac, Robinson, and Johnson expressed that they are all in favor of this change to the amendment Commissioner Kelley read a statement saying that he would not be voting to approve this amendment because it would allow a K-12 school to be located in a busy industrial park, it does not meet the goals and objectives for public health, safety and welfare of citizens, it would be located in an area where an unlimited number of I-502 manufacturing and 1-502 grow operations are allowed which is not in the best interests of school aged children,and there is a hotel located directly across the street. (Statement is attached to the public record). Commissioner Robinson asked for clarification about whether or not a K-12 school would be going into this location or if the classrooms would be used strictly for programs. Mr. Bates answered that the school intends to use the facility for their Parent/Partner program. This is a program that assists parents and children who are homeschooling or using other non-typical education systems to get the assistance they need to teach their children. There are no plans to have any kind of K-12 school in this location. Commissioner Kelley responded that this land use change would allow a K-12 school to be located on this property if it is approved. Mr. Basinger responded that the commission does need to look at what could be placed on the property based on the land use designations. This new designation would allow a K-12 school to be located on this property. However, the school district does not have any intentions to do that because they do not feel that location would be an appropriate place for a school. The Commission took a poll on the matter. Commissioners Kaschmitter, Haneke, Beaulac, Robinson, and Johnson were in favor of the amendment. Commissioners Kelly and McKinley were not in favor of the change. Discussion regarding CPA-2020-0007: 7 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 8 of 9 Commissioner Kelly read a statement saying that he would not support the amendment because it appears to be an attempt to punish investors in the community that have supported the City and that the amendment is not in line with the vision that was formed during the 2016 Comprehensive Plan Review. (Statement attached to the public record). Chairman Johnson expressed concern about the way the amendment was advertised and the need to let the residents know about such a big change. However, he feels that there are a lot of good ideas in the amendment and that there is a great need in the City for medium density lots. Commissioner Kaschmitter and Beaulac both expressed that the R-4 zone would be a good addition to the Comprehensive Plan because it would give options for alternative/affordable housing and help preserve the R-3 zone as envisioned but that the City really needs to do a better job notifying the property owners that will be affected by the change. Commissioner Johnson moved to extend the meeting time to 9:15 pm. There was no discussion. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. Commissioner Robinson mentioned that there is a very low vacancy factor for rentals in the City. She feels that it is a good idea to get more people into home ownership instead of forcing people to stay in rentals. The City needs to have options for alternative housing and this is a good way to achieve that option. She expressed that she is in favor of the change. Commissioner McKinley expressed that he is not in favor of this change because it changes the character of the area too much and he doesn't feel that the added density is a good addition to the City vision. Commissioner Haneke stated that he thinks the concept is a great idea. However, he is concerned about the property owners not being notified. With the current notification process, he is not in support of the change. The Commission took a poll on the matter. It was decided to recommend to the City Council not to approve this change to the Comprehensive Plan. Commissioner Beaulac moved to extend the meeting by fifteen minutes to 9:30 pm. There was no discussion. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. Commissioner McKinley moved to recommend approval on CPA-2020-0001, CPA-2020- 0002 and CPA-2020-0006 and recommend not approving CPA-2020-0003 & CPA-2020- 0007. The Commission came to a consensus that the basis for denying approval on CPA-2020-0007 was the lack of notification to the affected residents, increasing the density will have a negative impact on the standard of living that the Valley has had in the past, but the proposed R-4 zone could have some potential in the future with further study and changes. This information will be put into the findings of fact for approval at the July 23, 2020 meeting. The vote on the motion was seven in favor, zero against and the motion passed. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: The Commissioners commended the staff on their work on these amendments. 8 06-25-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 9 of 9 XL ADJOURNMENT: Commissioner McKinley made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 9:24 pm.

Study Session: CTA-2020-0001: A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC) 19.180,Newly Annexed Areas Economic Development Manager Mike Basinger gave a presentation to the commission explaining the city initiated code text amendment that will amend Chapter 19.180 of the SVMC to clarify the process and criteria to annex adjacent and contiguous areas into the city and to ensure that the fiscal impacts of providing the facilities, utilities, services, and maintenance of the annexation area are adequately considered prior to annexation. Deputy City Attorney Erik Lamb provided additional information regarding annexation. He explained that the amendment will clarify the annexation process for the three types of 1 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 2 of 6 annexation requests: voter initiated, City Council initiated and direct petition. It will outline the criteria that will be evaluated including existing and new facilities, services, expenses and revenues. It will also clearly identify the process to address zoning upon annexation. Chair Johnson asked for clarification regarding zoning for specific parcels as they request to annex into the city limits. Mr. Basinger answered that when the city annexes a property it is zoned with a designation that is the most similar to its current designation with the County. It will then be brought through the amendment process to evaluate what the zoning should be and go through the public process to make that final designation. Chairman Johnson asked for information regarding financial impact. He asked if a property would still be considered for annexation if it is found that the tax value received would be lower than the cost to the city. Mr. Basinger answered that this criteria will just be used as guidelines for the Council to consider when they make those decisions regarding annexation. b. Study Session: CTA Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments Mr. Basinger explained that local jurisdictions are allowed to make amendments to the Comprehensive Plan once each year. There are five proposed amendments that will be considered during 2020; four map amendments and one text amendment. A public hearing will be held on June 25, 2020. Notice of hearing will be published twice prior to the fifteen day requirement, the site was posted with a"Notice of Hearing" sign, and individual notice was mailed to all residents within a 400 foot radius of the subject properties. After the public hearing, the request will move to Council where they will review Planning Commission findings, consider the public hearing, and approve/modify/deny the request. The floor was given to Senior Planner Chaz Bates to discuss the details of each proposed amendment. CPA-2020-0001: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential(SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates said that this amendment is privately initiated for the property located at 1311 N McDonald Road, between Mission and Broadway. It is owned by Land Use Solutions and Entitlement. The request is to rezone the property from single-family residential (R-3)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The property to the east is zoned multi-family,the property to the south is corridor mixed use, and the west and south are zoned single family residential. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site, the site would support the redevelopment of the parcel, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0002: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I)to Regional Commercial(RC) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Regional Commercial(RC). 2 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 6 Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located off of Sprague and Fancher and is owned by Lawrence B. Stone Properties. The request is to convert the zoning on 3 acres of land from Industrial (I) to Regional Commercial (RC). The properties to the north are zoned industrial and the property to the south and the west are regional commercial. Findings show that there are no critical areas,the site is completely paved,the change would support redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. CPA-2020-0003: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Multifamily Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a privately initiated request for the property located south of Mission and west of Pines and is owned by Jay Rambo. The request is to convert the zoning of 6.24 acres from Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The properties to the west is corridor mixed use,the north is industrial,the east is corridor mixed use and the south is single family residential. Findings show that there are no critical areas, the site supports redevelopment of an underused property, is supported by the transportation network and is compatible with the surrounding uses. A trip generation and distribution letter was completed by the City of Spokane Valley's Senior Engineer and shows a net increase of traffic volumes of one car during the PM peak hour. All other times of the day remain the same. Commissioner Haneke asked if the developer wants to build additional apartment buildings on the property and expressed concern about traffic flow in the area. Mr. Bates answered that this zoning designation would allow for additional multifamily dwelling units or retail. Attorney Lamb responded that the analysis done for this change shows the change from multi-family to corridor mixed use, it is not for a specific proposal. The current zoning of multi-family allows for a significant amount of trips. Corridor mixed use zoning will add more flexibility of uses but according to the traffic study it should not impact the traffic flow more than one car during the peak PM period. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked about the open space requirement for corridor mixed use designation. Building Official Nickerson responded that there are different requirements in the current Spokane Valley Municipal code between multifamily versus corridor mixed use zones. Multifamily does require open space but corridor mixed use does not. If open space was still required, Mission Park would provide the multifamily open space requirement. CPA-2020-0006: Request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is a city-initiated request to change the 9 acre property located at 3830 N Sullivan Rd from Industrial (I)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The property is owned by East Valley School District(EVSD) and currently houses the district's Walker Center. This location includes the EVSD administrative services and maintenance 3 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 6 building. The properties to the west,north, and east are all industrial uses, and to the south are retail service and industrial uses. Findings show that there are no critical areas, supports expanded educational uses, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding areas. The proposed amendment allows flexibility so that that EVSD can provide educational services in this location. Education services are prohibited in the industrial zone and EVSD would like to move their Parent/Partner program to this location. CPA-2020-0007: Amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to provide policy guidance for increased housing density with access to support services like transit and commercial services, and provide implementing regulations. Mr. Basinger said that this is a city initiated text amendment that will apply city-wide. It will address alternative housing types such as duplexes, cottages, and townhomes. It is policy language that will help protect residential neighborhoods by incentivizing alternative housing in areas that are supported by existing infrastructure. Staff is proposing an area-wide rezone in hopes to address concerns from the residents regarding the influx of duplex developments and provide appropriate locations for alternative housing. The objective of this amendment is to address those concerns by creating areas that can support denser housing because of its location to transit and services. The vision is that there will be a larger variety of housing types available for residents and will help with housing affordability. The proposal will rezone 1218 acres within the City limits to the new zoning district,R-4. There is 57 vacant acres and 67 acres that are partially used. Studies show that there is potential for 1240 housing units which would lead to 3100 new residents. The proposed area is surrounded by multifamily and corridor mixed use zoning districts. The code text amendment will create the R-4 zone in the code and provide a description and outline permitted uses. The change specifies that duplex development in the R-3 zone shall have a minimum lot size of 14,500 square feet. There is also an additional text change in the Appendix A definitions that states that townhouses are not considered multifamily. Mr. Basinger stated that staffs analysis shows that single family development will incentivize the R-3 zone because the change will allow eight single family units per acre. The new R-4 zone will promote development of alternative housing types in those areas where transit and services are available giving a greater variety of housing types in areas that can handle an influx of residents. Commissioner McKinley asked what the ultimate intent is for the amendment. Mr. Basinger answered that the vision is to offer a variety of alternative housing within the city. Staff is optimistic that due to the density change in this amendment, the City might see some cottage or townhome developments that would offer more affordable options. Commissioner Kaschmitter asked if the Appleway Trail could be extended. She also asked if Spokane Transit Authority is considering making their services more frequent in this area. Mr. Basinger answered that there are plans to extend the Appleway Trail to Dishman Hills. The Transit Authority is optimistic that they would be able to extend their services as more development happens. They feel that more demand would drive them to offer additional services. Commissioner Beaulac asked about the notification process for the properties affected by this change. 4 06-11-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 5 of 6 Mr. Basinger answered that the public hearing has been published twice in the newspaper, it will be sent to the Comprehensive Plan distribution list that includes any person that has ever signed up to receive notifications about comprehensive plan changes (approximately 370 people), it will be published on all of the City's social media platforms, and a media release will be sent out prior to the public hearing. Chairman Johnson asked for clarification about sending notification out regarding the City- wide rezone. Mr. Basinger responded that the City does not send out letters to individual property owners when a City-wide rezone is done. However, staff hopes that the additional notices on social media,press releases, and the distribution list will get the word out to the residents about the change. c. Study Session: CTA-2020-0002. A proposed change to Spokane Valley Municipal Code 19.90, Essential Public Facilities. Senior Planner Lori Barlow gave a presentation on the city-initiated code text amendment to amend regulations on essential public facilities (EPF). The proposal is to prohibit locally significant essential public facilities in residential zones. She explained that essential public facilities are facilities that are typically hard to site because of their size and the nature of their use. These facilities include state and local correctional facilities, solid waste handling facilities, inpatient facilities which includes substance abuse facilities, mental health group homes and secure community transition facilities. Pursuant to the Growth Management Act, cities and counties are required to have procedures to site essential public facilities. They can't be precluded from being allowed within the city limits. However, the City can control the zones where they are located. This request is to preclude all of the residential zones; R-1, R-2, and R-3. The reason for this change is because there have been numerous detoxification facilities proposed within the City limits in the last few years. There was a controversial public hearing held recently for a detoxification center that wanted to move into a residential zone. Staff made the decision that it would be appropriate to look at making a change to limit the zones where these types of facilities can be sited. The City regulates essential public facilities pursuant to chapter 19.90 SVMC. The current regulations stipulate that a conditional use permit (CUP) is required for all essential public facilities to address any possible impacts. Currently, essential public facilities are allowed in all zones except mixed use and parks and open space. Chairman Johnson asked if the new R-4 zone would also be included.

COMMISSION BUSINESS: 03-12-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 2 of 5 i. Study Session: Proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendments Economic Development Manager Mike Basinger gave some background and introduced the 2020 Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment process. Mr. Basinger explained that applications were accepted through October 31, 2019. During this time period, pre- application meetings were performed with those interested in submitting a Comprehensive Plan Amendment. Mr. Basinger noted that City Council did choose to remove two amendments this year, as recommended by staff. a. CPA-2020-0001: A Privately Initiated Map Amendment to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential(SFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Senior Planner Chaz Bates introduced Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020- 0001. Mr. Bates stated that the property is located along McDonald Road, east side of McDonald Road and south of Mission Avenue. The applicant is Land Use Solutions and Entitlement and the owner is Tucker Roy LLC. The proposal is to change the Land Use Designation from Single Family Residential (SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates reviewed the approval criteria, which included the expansion of the CMU, no critical areas, it supports development of vacant properties, it provides land for employment, the transportation network supports it, and it is generally compatible with the surrounding uses. Commissioner Johnson requested clarification that the change is only being made to the property with the existing house or if it includes the vacant lot next to it as well. Mr. Bates confirmed it is only the property with the existing house as the lot next to it is already zoned CMU. b. CPA-2020-0002: A Privately Initiated Map Amendment to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial (1) to Regional Commercial (RC) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial (I) to Regional Commercial (RC). Mr. Bates introduced Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020-0002, stating the applicant as LB Stone Properties and the owner as LB Stone Properties. The proposal is to change the land use designation from Industrial (I) to Regional Commercial (RC). Mr. Bates provided details related to the site. Mr. Bates went on to review the approval criteria, which included the expansion of the RC, no critical areas, it supports redevelopment of underused properties, it provides land for employment, it is supported by the transportation network, and it is generally compatible with the surrounding uses. c. CPA-2020-0003 A Privately Initiated Map Amendment to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Multifamily Residential (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Multifamily Residential (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Mr. Bates introduced Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020-0003, listing the applicant as Jay Rambo and the owners as Revere-Dece III, LLC and Brill Properties, LLC. The proposal is to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use designation from Multifamily Residential (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Mr. Bates reviewed the approval criteria, which included the expansion of the CMU, no critical areas, it supports redevelopment of underused properties, it provides land for employment, it 03-12-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 oF 5 is supported by the transportation network, and it is generally compatible with the surrounding uses. He describes where you can find the location of this property, as it can be difficult to locate. Commissioner Robinson asked a question on the CMU zone and what it allows. Mr. Bates explained the CMU zone is a more flexible zone, allowing a retail component, multi-family development, and light industry. Commissioner Robinson asked if it could increase the walkability of this neighborhood. Mr. Bates confirmed that it could. Mr. Basinger offered more background, detailing meetings held with developers during the Periodic Update of the Comprehensive Plan. He stated that these developers were interested in having a retail component as part of their multi-family development. CMU allows this to happen. d. CPA-2020-0006 A City Initiated Map Amendment to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation from Industrial(I) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Industrial (I) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). Mr. Bates introduced Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020-0006, explaining where this location can be found. Mr. Bates reviewed the approval criteria. Mr. Bates mentioned that through the pre-application discussions the school district explained their plan to move their parent child partner program to this location. However; the Industrial zone does not allow any K-12 education components, which is the reason for this request. There is discussion on the zoning of the surrounding area, the operations happening on the surrounding industrial lots, and how the proposed lot is currently being utilized. e. CPA-2020-0007 A City Initiated Text Amendment to amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to provide policy guidance for increased housing density with access to support services like transit and commercial services; and provide implementing regulations. Mr. Basinger introduced Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020-0007 by providing background. He explained the objective of this amendment is to address the concern about the influx of duplex developments expressed by residents in several areas around the City. Mr. Basinger continued by offering research gathered from the Spokane-Kootenai Real Estate Research Committee 2020 Market Forum showing that the housing inventory is low, creating a high demand. Mr. Basinger reviewed the two goals for alternative housing types. First, enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within 1/2 mile of the high performance transit network. Second, preserve and enhance the City's established single-family neighborhoods by minimizing the impacts of more dense housing typologies such as duplexes and cottage development. Mr. Basinger referenced the map representing the zoning code changes, expressing the intent is to see this kind of development in an area that offers more walkability. Mr. Basinger moved on to explain the code text amendment that would add a new Single-Family Residential Urban (R-4) zone. He noted the changes made to the 19.60.050 Permitted uses matrix. There is a short discussion on requirements for cottage development. 03-12-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 5 Mr. Basinger moved forward in explaining the R-4 19.70 Residential Standards. There was a short discussion on accessibility to green space and parks. Mr. Basinger explained that the Appleway Trail is a linear park that would be within walking distance from most of this proposed rezone. There are plans for the trail to expand from University Road to Dishman Hills. He explained for those that are further from the trail, that there are plans within the Parks Master Plan to increase development of parks. Mr. Bates offered additional insight on the 20-year plan outlined in the Parks Master Plan. This 20-year plan outlines various acquisitions to increase the City's level of service for parks. Mr. Basinger explained how cottage development would offer a density bonus. Cottage developments require an open space for people to gather and recreate. Mr. Basinger explained there is a shortage of parks in portions of the City where some of the properties are located. There was a lengthy discussion regarding the cost of housing and property values. Commissioner Kelley asked a question regarding the cost of housing and property values. Mr. Basinger explained that when there is a low supply, that housing costs are higher. He described that there is fair amount of vacant and partially used land that could be redeveloped within the proposed area-wide rezone. He further explained, that the proposed rezone would allow for higher density and more opportunity for housing increasing supply and potentially lower the cost of housing in the area. Mr. Basinger clarified that the area-wide rezone should not lower property values. He stated that it would increase density and the opportunity to develop more lots on parcels of land and therefore it should increase the value of property with the proposed area-wide rezone. There was a discussion clarifying what lots would be changing to the R-4 zone. Commissioner Johnson requested the map be updated for further clarification. Commissioner McKinley expressed his concern for the agricultural areas changing due to the addition of smaller lots. The agricultural areas have been the culture of Spokane Valley for many years and he has seen that go away with denser housing developing. He does not want to see a decrease in these agricultural areas. Mr. Basinger explained staff want to preserve the character of the Valley, but that there needs to be a balance. He stated the City is preserving the character of Spokane Valley with estate zoning, one-acre lots in areas like Ponderosa, and the 10,000 square foot lots in the Single-Family Residential Suburban (R-2) zone. He noted that there needs to be a variety of opportunities for development and that the areas surrounding the Sprague corridor, where there is transportation and services, the City would like to promote infill development. Mr. Bates explained that animal raising and animal keeping is still permitted in this area to help preserve the character. Commissioner McKinley asked for the median income for the area. Mr. Bates stated they can provide a number at the next meeting. There was a lengthy discussion regarding how the access to transportation will benefit those that would be living in the affordable housing within this proposed zone. The access to transportation will allow these residents to reach jobs in different areas. Commissioner Kaschmitter pointed out that having more rooftops in this area would increase our high frequency bus service to help more people to where they need to go. She also described how the high performance transportation network connects to the Valley Transit Center allowing for residents to travel to their jobs throughout the County. 03-12-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Pages of 5 The study session ended with a conversation on what plan B will be if public meetings are cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus. Mr. Basinger offered insight on staffs plans moving forward and how information will be shared to citizens. X.

Annual Training: Public Records Training, Open Public Meetings City Attorney Cary Driskell gave the annual public records and open public meetings training to attending Planning Commissioners and staff. iv. Training Session: Comprehensive Plan Amendments History and Docket Overview Mike Basinger, Economic Development Manager and Chaz Bates, Senior Planner introduced themselves to the Commission. Mr. Basinger gave a brief history of the development of the City's Comprehensive Plan. This included the development of the land use map, zoning areas, and the periodic update process. Staff is looking at a city-wide rezone in certain areas and Mr. Basinger wanted the Commission to understand the history of what has been done with the comp plan in the past and give an explanation of the development and implementation of the different land use zones within the City. Mr. Bates gave an overview of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process and site specific map amendments. He explained that any applications for amendment must be received by October 31s to be considered in that year's amendment process. The City does publish notice 60 days prior to the application due date. Once applications are received, they are reviewed and docketed for the City Council. The Council does have the authority to remove items from the consideration docket. Once the docket is approved, it begins the process through Planning Commission. Mr. Basinger stated that there were two items that were removed from the 2020 consideration docket. Mr. Bates clarified the timeline of the 2020 process and stated that there will be five amendments to be considered. There are four map amendments and one text amendment. The first map amendment (CPA-2020-0001) is privately initiated by Land Use Solutions and is located on McDonald. The applicant would like to change their designation/zoning from Single-Family-Residential (SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). 02-27-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 4 The second map amendment (CPA-2020-0002) is privately initiated by LB Stone Properties and is located on Fancher/Sprague. The applicant would like to change their designation/zoning from Industrial (I)to Regional Commercial (RC). The third map amendment (CPA-2020-0003) is privately initiated by Jay Rambo and is located at 1723/1724 N. Union. The applicant would like to change their designation/zoning from Multifamily Residential (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The fourth map amendment (CPA-2020-0006) is city initiated and is for the East Valley School District Walker Center. The City would like to change the designation/zoning from Industrial (I) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). This would allow the school district to move their parent/child classes related to home schooling to this location and it cannot occur under the current zoning. Mr. Basinger gave information regarding the code text amendment (CPA-2020-0007). This amendment applies city-wide and implements changes to allow for alternative housing types and brings forward an area-wide rezone with implementing regulations. He explained that there was concern about duplex development throughout the city that really needed to be addressed and he feels that that the staff has come up with some good ideas that will help address some of those concerns. Staff reasoned that it would be best to have the denser housing zones located near services and transit and limit duplexes and cottage home building in the R-3 zones. He explained that staff developed a new R-4 zone that is located between 811'Avenue and Broadway Avenue. This area was determined to be a good location because it is within walking distance of the transit system that Spokane Transit Authority (STA) currently has in place. They hope to be able to incentivize alternative housing within areas that have transit and services. Mr. Basinger explained that staff is looking at 10 units per acre in the new R-4 zone. Cottage and townhome developments would be allowed in this zone but they would no longer be allowed in the R-3 zone. They will increase the units allowed to eight units per acre and increase the minimum lot size to 14,500 square feet to do a duplex within the R- 3 zone. The requirement for duplexes will only be six units per acre so the hope is that this will incentivize single family residences in this zoning area. Commissioner Kelly asked if tiny homes will be allowed in the R-4 zone. Building Official Jenny Nickerson answered that the building code will have a new appendix addressing tiny homes. A tiny home will be interchangeable with the cottage standards and a single family residential home. The only caveat to that code will be tiny homes that are on trailers or on wheels. These are considered recreational vehicles and would not be allowed in the residential zones. Commissioner Walton asked how the staff came to the density regulations in the R-3 zone. Mr. Basinger stated that staff wanted to increase the density in the R-3 zone and utilize the 5000 square foot lot size. They hope that this change will really encourage developers to go with a single-family development in the R-3 zone and keep the high density developments in the R-4 zone. Commissioner Kelly asked if there was consideration to extend this zone to skirting the industrial to the north of Sprague. Mr. Basinger answered that staff really wanted to stick to the policies and goals outlined in the current Comprehensive Plan, which states that the higher density areas would be located near transportation and services. Staff looked at some other industrial areas but this location made the most sense geographically because of its location to those services. 02-27-2020 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 01.4 Chair Johnson mentioned that the STA did a presentation to the City Council that they are considering expanding their services to Barker Road. Commissioner Kaschmitter commented that if the City is going to basing this R-4 change on access to services and transit on Sprague, it would be important for there to be bus service from one end of Sprague to the other end without having to change buses. Mr. Basinger agreed and said that the City is in conversations with STA about the possibility of getting additional transit service if there are more rooftops developed in this area. Chair Johnson expressed that he would like to make sure that the public is well notified of these amendment changes to the plan so that they can give their input. Mr. Basinger responded that all of these amendment changes will be broadly posted on all of the City's social networks to let people know. Commissioner Walton asked if property owners will be notified that their property is being rezoned. Mr. Basinger answered that they will not be individually notified because it is an area-wide rezone. The City is allowed to make these changes through this process without sending individual notification. However, the City will do everything possible to get notice out so that the residents are aware of any changes that happen. X. GOOD OF THE ORDER: Commissioner Kaschmitter thanked staff for the Comprehensive Plan preview. Commissioner Walton expressed that since the Commissioners are not able to get to know each other outside of Council Chambers. he wanted to give a little background on who he is and what he is about. He encouraged the other Commissioners to do the same in the upcoming meetings. He gave a quick biography of himself outlining his personal life and his values and ideas. XI. ADJOURNMENT: Commissioner McKinley moved to adjourn the meeting at 7:46 pm. The vote on the motion was six in flivor, zero opposed, and the motion passed. 6'97 ----James Johnson, Chairman Date signed Deanna Horton, Secretary CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY Request for Planning Commission Action Meeting Date: July 23, 2020 Item: Check all that apply ❑ old business ® new business ❑ public hearing ❑ information ❑ study session ❑ pending legislation AGENDA ITEM TITLE: 2020 Proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendments—Findings of Fact GOVERNING LEGISLATION: RCW 36.70A, SVMC 17.80.140 and 19.30.010.

James Johnson, Chairman ATTEST Deanna Horton,Planning Commission Secretary Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020- 0007 Page 3 of 3 ATTACHMENT 1 FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE SPOKANE VALLEY PLANNING COMMISSION FOR PROPOSED COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT- CPA-2020-0001 July 23,2020 A. Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year.The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30,2019,advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019. The notice was also sent to all agencies,organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19,2019,the City Council approved the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment will require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0001. All findings in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA- 2020-0001. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. The proposed amendment changing the land use designation from Single Family Residential(SFR)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU)has a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials."McDonald Road is an improved north-south Minor Arterial that is consistent with the description of the CMU designation. Additionally,the proposed amendment provides flexibility that can be used to support the applicant's indicated desire to expand the McDonald Professional Center use on the subject property. Changing the designation to CMU,increases the allowed types of uses to include office and parking. Increasing office and parking opportunities in the McDonald Road corridor has a substantial benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act(GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations.The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of office use on a designated Minor Arterial with supporting infrastructure. The proposal is consistent with goals of GMA and the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies.The amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions from the 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan.However,the two parcels to the south of the proposed amendment were Attachment 1-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 4 changed from Office to CMU as part of the 2016 legislative update as part of a larger 2016 amendment to eliminate the Office designation,and the owner of the subject property is the same owner of the McDonald Professional Center. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. While not directly identified as a deficiency,the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure.The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City: ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents,employees,and visitors. T-G2 Ensure that transportation planning efforts reflect anticipated land use patterns and support identified growth opportunities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow for expanded office and office related uses such as parking.The change could result in more intensive development in the future,though the site immediately to the south is vacant and designated and zoned CMU. There is no concern on the effect of the physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site, such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance ensures adequate protection of critical areas and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is adjacent to CMU to the south and MFR to the east.To the north and west are existing single family homes on SFR designated properties. If approved,the development of the site will be subject to the transitional regulations that will ensure protection of the adjacent homes to the north and south. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the south and east. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal.Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: McDonald Road is a Minor Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change. While the subject property was not considered in the 2016 legislative update,the property immediately to the south was part of the 2016 analysis. The projected LOS for McDonald Road in 2040 is A- C,and no mitigations or transportation projects are planned for this section of McDonald Road within the 20-year planning horizon.Additionally,the subject property is approximately 0.5 acres and its overall impact to the transportation system is minimal. Attachment 1-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 The subject property and the property immediately to the south are considered infill development, as such,the expansion of office in this area is ideal because of the supporting infrastructure that is in place. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property to support the expansion of the McDonald Professional Center,increasing employment opportunities and growing the City's economy. The change will benefit the City and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 0.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City.While additional demand for CMU property may be limited,the CMU designation in this location allows for the expansion of an existing office development on the McDonald Road corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: There is one dwelling unit proposed to be removed. While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur and therefore the City would lose one single family house as a result of the amendment.The change is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above.There will be no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan,including Housing,Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0001. The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan, and will promote the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0001. Approved this 23rd day of July,2020.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC).

On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0002. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0002 Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. The proposed amendment provides the opportunity to aggregate parcels creating greater depth to provide for a larger format structure.Based on the application,the intent is to combine the two Regional Commercial (RC) parcels to the south with the proposal. Both the Industrial(I)and RC designations and zoning districts allow for intensive uses.Providing opportunity for development and redevelopment where there is existing infrastructure has a substantial benefit to public health, safety,and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to aggregate parcels in an area that is already served by supporting infrastructure. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals.The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan.While not identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan includes the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure. The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City by: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 3 ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to RC will allow uses similarly allowed along the Sprague corridor. The change may result in a more people-oriented active use in the area versus a vacant or industrial use, but the intensity would be similar to existing nearby uses. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas, frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed when future development occurs and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is adjacent to RC to the west and south; and Ito the north and east. To the north are existing industrial developments and users. To the south is a vacant used motor vehicle sales lot that is under the same ownership. To the west is Home Depot. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: Sprague Avenue is a Principal Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change. The 20-year Transportation Improvement Plan identifies a concrete intersection at Sprague and Fancher by 2039. The existing and projected LOS for this segment of Sprague Avenue is D within City's adopted standard. Additionally, the change from Ito RC is expected to have a minimal impact to the transportation network and other utilities. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property to be combined with the two properties fronting Sprague Avenue, increasing employment opportunities and growing the city's economy. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 3 LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 3 acres of RC property to the 809 acres of existing RC designated property within the city. As of 2018, there are approximately 111 acres of vacant RC property within the city. The amendment allows for commercial development on the Sprague Avenue corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under RC standards the type of use and density will be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Under the existing conditions the subject property is a paved vacant lot.It appears the property was used in conjunction with the RC designated property to the south for used motor vehicle sales, which is presently vacant. The change of the property from I to RC will not impact current or projected population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The RC designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0002.The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0002. Approved this 23rd day of July, 2020.

Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findin2s: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0003. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0003. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as "allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials." The subject properties are between CMU properties to the west, east, and south. Access is provided by Union Road via Mission Avenue.Mission Ave is a Minor Arterial.Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area. The Planning Commission finds that the potential for increased density in the area may result in safety concerns related to the transportation infrastructure along Union Road,it does not find the amendment bears a substantial relationship to public health, safety, and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is generally consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of the multiple family development on the site and the opportunity to provide the neighborhood with access to daily goods and services in a centralized area with adequate public facilities; there are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area to improve capacity. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the comprehensive plan. However, the Planning Commission finds that impacts on the local access street of Union Road have not been adequately considered and have further found that changing the land used designation to CMU may increase access concerns along Union. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. While the Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 4 amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions beyond the owner's control,the 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan eliminated the Office designation generally replacing it with the CMU designation, which was the case for the parcels to the west, east, and south.While the 2016 plan changed the designation of the surrounding vacant lands from Office to CMU, the properties subject to the amendment request had a multifamily development and the designation of Multifamily was not changed. The CMU designation provides more flexibility than the Office and Multifamily designations. The changing of the surrounding properties from Office to CMU created a situation whereby the subject properties may not use their property to the similarly situated properties to the west,east,and south. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment adds diminutive capacity to the CMU designation; all three parcels have existing structures and two have multifamily developments on them. Changing the designation from MFR to CMU on an existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on developed parcels using pre-existing infrastructure and provide flexibility to add service related retail to the area that may be supported by the multifamily housing. While the proposal does not address a direct deficiency,the Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policies that support the proposed change: LU-G 1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-G1 Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as commercial, office and higher residential development of the properties. The properties will have the opportunity to transition, add density and add a mix of uses to serve the surrounding neighborhood. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas.The parcels are not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The 6.25-acre site is currently developed with a multifamily development and one single-family home. The adjacent use to the south is single-family, to the west self-storage, to the east office, multifamily and vacant CMU.The CMU land use designation surrounds the proposed amendment site to the west, east, and north. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations. Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 If approved future development of the site will be subject to the transitional provisions adopted in the development regulations. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the west, east, and south. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: Mission Avenue is a Minor Arterial. There are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area, one of which is the intersection capacity improvement and signal modification at Pines/Mission. Site-specific improvements and their impact to this project would be identified through the development review process,and development on the parcels within the Mirabeau Subarea Study area. The subject properties are considered infill development, as such,the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. However, the Planning Commission finds that impacts on the local access street of Union Road have not been adequately considered and have further found that changing the land use designation to CMU may increase access concerns along Union. The Planning Commission concludes that Union Road is not adequate to support the proposed change. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property to increase density and support infill development in an area planned for growth. The change may support increased housing opportunities, office, employment, or access to daily goods and services. The change benefits the neighborhood, city, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 6.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the city. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited, the CMU designation in this place would allow for increased options for development including retail services serving the existing multifamily development.The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area. This proposed amendment is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 3 of 4 The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0003 except for the potential unaddressed impacts to Union Road as it relates to findings 2, 3, and 10 above. The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment is consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment except for the potential unaddressed impacts to Union Road as it relates to findings 2, 3,and 10 above. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council deny the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0003. Approved this 23rd day of July, 2020.

On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findin2s: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0006. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0006. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. The proposed amendment provides more flexibility of uses on a property allowing East Valley School District (EVSD) to broaden and enhance their educational service mission. Under the Industrial zone educational activities are limited to professional, vocational and trade schools. While this may continue to be an essential component to EVSD curriculum,flexibility is needed to meet existing and future demand for other educational services. Changing the designation to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU), increases the allowed types of educational services legally permitted to occur in the existing facility. Increasing educational opportunities to local youth has a substantial benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. 3. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to strengthen EVSD mission to provide for education of local youth in an area with adequate public facilities.The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. The amendment does respond to a substantial change in conditions from 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan.At that time the subject parcel was not changed from the designation in place since at least 2014.Since the 2016 legislative update,EVSD has experienced changes in enrollment and interest in vocational education, under the existing designation only professional, vocational and trade schools are allowed in the Industrial designation changing the designation to CMU allows EVSD to adapt the educational services they provide in a location they own and have made Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 3 substantial improvements for educational purposes.The demographic and interest shifts are beyond EVSD control the proposed change allows them to continue to serve district educational needs. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan.While not directly identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goal and policy that support workforce development and education, which are integral to the long-term success of the City: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as more expanded educational uses. The change could result in more intensive development in the future, though the site is currently developed.There is no concern on effect of physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands,fish and wildlife habitat areas, frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The property is generally surrounded by Spokane Industrial Park to the north and east; however, the property is not part of the Spokane Industrial Park. The property to the south is designated and zoned CMU. The institutional use on the proposed site is generally compatible with both the light industrial uses to the north and east and the retail service uses to the south.The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhoods is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: B Street is a local access street and Sullivan Road is a Principal Arterial. There are two capacity related projects in the 6-year TIP near the project area: intersection improvement at Sullivan and Wellesley and improvement to Sullivan and SR 290(Trent)interchange. The subject properties are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region: The proposed change would allow the property and structure owned by EVSD to be used for educational purposes beyond professional, vocational and trade school use, increasing the school district's ability to provide educational services. The change benefits the neighborhood,City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 3 ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposal would add approximately 9 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited,the CMU designation allows for additional educational uses,which has been indicated as needed from EVSD. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: Under the existing conditions and the Industrial designation there is very little population that resides in the area. While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur. The proposed change in land use designation is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goal and policy identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan,including Land Use,Transportation,and Housing,Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0006.The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approval the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0006. Approved this 23'day of July,2020. James Johnson, Chairman ATTEST Deanna Horton,Planning Commission Secretary Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA-2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 3 of 3 ATTACHMENT 5 FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE SPOKANE VALLEY PLANNING COMMISSION FOR PROPOSED COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT CPA-2020-0007 July 23,2020 A. Background: 1. The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year. The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC, staff published notice on August 23 and 30, 2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies, organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. 2. On November 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Sites approved for a Comprehensive Plan amendment require and receive a zoning classification amendment consistent with the new land use designation. B. Findings: 1. These findings are specific to CPA-2020-0007. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2020- 0007. 2. In regards to noticing,the Planning Commission finds that the City met all legal requirements for notice for CPA 2020-0007. The Planning Commission finds that the City provided notice above legal requirements in the form of press releases, social media releases, and email list releases. However, Planning Commission finds that given the scope of the impact of the proposed amendment, additional noticing would have been beneficial as indicated by the relatively limited number of public comments received. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 3. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety,welfare,and protection of the environment.Housing is an important component of the economic infrastructure of the city. Ensuring that there is a variety of housing types is an important competitive advantage for economic development. The proposed amendment will allow the City to more closely align its housing needs with locations within the City to ensure adequate infrastructure is available. This will also enable the provision of quality, affordable housing for all Spokane Valley residents. 4. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The GMA provides that the housing element serves to encourage the availability of affordable housing to residents of all economic backgrounds,promote a variety of residential densities and housing types, and encourage the preservation of existing neighborhoods. The proposed amendment will provide increased housing options in locations that have adequate infrastructure that can affordably support increased densities. The Planning Commission finds that additional noticing would serve the GMA's requirements to allow for effective public participation. 5. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. The amendment is Attachment 5-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA- 2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 1 of 4 not related to a specific piece of property.This amendment looks to incentivize alternative housing development where there is frequent transit and commercial services. 6. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. 7. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan identifies that the city will need an additional 6,389 homes by 2037 (3,962 single family homes and 2,417 multifamily). The plan also identifies that the median household income in the city was about$2,000 less than the average countywide annual earnings.Additional data indicates that residents are cost-burdened with 51% of renters and 26% of homeowners spending at least 33 percent of their monthly budget on rent or mortgage payments. The following adopted goals,policies,and strategy support the proposed amendment: H-G1 Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. Strategy: Continue to evaluate new housing typologies to meet market needs. Findings for Factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 8. The effect upon the physical environment: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and as a non site-specific amendment does not have a direct effect on the physical environment. Future development that may result will be evaluated under city regulations for physical development. 9. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and does not have a direct effect on open space, streams, rivers and lakes. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. 10. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The proposed amendment is policy oriented and includes implementing development regulations that are aimed to protect neighborhood character and locate alternative housing in areas with frequent transit and commercial services. The Planning Commission finds that increasing the density in the R-3 zoning district from six dwelling units per acres to eight dwelling units per acre as identified in the proposed implementing regulations would have a negative impact on the quality of life for residents in those areas by potentially increasing crime and decreasing property values. 11. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: Capital Facilities Policy CF-P6 recommends that facilities and services meet minimum Level of Service (LOS) Standards. LOS standards have been adopted for water, sewer, transportation, stormwater,law enforcement,libraries,parks, street cleaning,public transit,fire,and schools.The proposed amendment seeks to take advantage of available infrastructure to minimize the need to develop and maintain new infrastructure. 12. The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region: Increasing housing options that protect neighborhood character and minimize the need for new infrastructure can potentially reduce housing costs and thereby reducing the amount of city residents paying more than 33 percent of their income toward housing, which would benefit the Attachment 5-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2020-0001,CPA-2020-0002,CPA-2020-0003,CPA- 2020-0006,and CPA-2020-0007 Page 2 of 4 neighborhood, city and region. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-P8 Provide and maintain an infrastructure system that supports Spokane Valley's economic development priorities. LU-G 1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-G4 Ensure that land use plans, regulations, review processes, and infrastructure improvements support economic growth and vitality LU-P14 Enable a variety of housing types. LU-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. 13. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The proposed amendment does not change the location or quantity of land designations. Implementing changes to the zoning code may increase densities in locations with adequate infrastructure support, and may reduce densities in other locations. Any future change would be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecasted. 14. The current and projected population density in the area: The implementing regulations may increase density in areas that are supported by adequate infrastructure and may reduce densities in other locations.The proposed amendment is not expected to have significant impacts to population density on a citywide level.Implementing regulations will be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecasted. 15. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The proposed amendment will support the Comprehensive Plan's housing goals, policies, and strategies. The amendment will not have a direct impact on other Comprehensive Plan elements. Implementing regulations will be consistent with the adopted Comprehensive Plan and the demand forecast. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2020-0007 except for the need for additional notice above what is legally required and the negative impacts from the increase in density in the R-3 zone. The proposed 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments are consistent with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council deny the 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2020-0007. Approved this 23rd day of July,2020.

PREVIOUS COMMISSION ACTION:None BACKGROUND: The GMA allows local jurisdictions to consider amendments to their Comprehensive Plans once each year.The City codified this process in Section 17.80.140 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code(SVMC). Consistent with state law and the SVMC,staff published notice on August 23 and 30,2019, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 31,2019.The notice was also sent to all agencies,organizations, and adjacent jurisdictions that may have an interest in amending the comprehensive plan. Comprehensive Plan Amendments (CPA) are divided into two categories: map amendments and text amendments. CPAs may be privately initiated or proposed by City Council,Planning Commission or staff As part of the annual comprehensive plan amendment cycle, the City Council is presented the proposed amendments that may be considered for this year's amendment cycle.This process known as docketing. The City Council reviews and approves the Docket, which is forwarded to the Planning Commission to review the CPAs and make a recommendation to City Council for their final approval. On November 19, 2019,the City Council approved the 2020 Docket. The Docket includes five proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: four map amendments and one text amendment. Tonight staff will provide an overview of the 2020 Docket, background information on the adopted Comprehensive Plan and implementing regulations and provide additional detail on the City initiated text amendment.On February 13,the Planning Commission will hold a study session on the entire 2020 Docket.

ATTACHMENTS: Exhibit 1: Application Exhibit 6: SEPA Checklist Exhibit 2: Vicinity Map Exhibit 7: Environment Determination Exhibit 3: Comprehensive Plan Map Exhibit 8: Notice of Public Hearing Exhibit 4: Zoning Map Exhibit 9: Agency and Public Exhibit 5: Aerial Comments A. BACKGROUND INFORMATION The Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map amendment is a privately-initiated request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation of parcel 45152.1004 from Single Family Residential (SFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning District from Single Family Residential Urban (R-3)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The existing use on the property is a single family residence owned by the applicant.The site is flat and does not contain any critical areas.The property is to the north of the McDonald Professional Center and adjacent to a vacant parcel designated and zoned CMU. The property and adjacent vacant CMU property and are being considered for future office expansion. A 44 unit multifamily development,McDonald Place,is directly east across McDonald Road;to the north of McDonald Place is another 19 unit multifamily development. Immediately to the north and west of the Page 1 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0001 06/03/20 subject property are single-family residences.To the south is a vacant property designated and zoned CMU;beyond the vacant property further south is the McDonald Professional Office building. The property is served by McDonald Road.McDonald Road is minor arterial with a 3-lane urban cross- section with a single-travel lane north and south, a center turn lane,with bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the street.The Average Daily Traffic(ADT)for this segment of McDonald,in 2015,is estimated at nearly 5,000 vehicular trips per day with a level of service of A-C. PROPERTY INFORMATION: Size and Characteristics: The property consists of one parcel totaling 0.46 acres in size with frontage on McDonald Road. Comprehensive Plan: Single Family Residential(SFR) Zoning: Single Family Residential Urban(R-3) Existing Land Use: A single-family home is located on the property. SURROUNDING COMPREHENSIVE PLAN,ZONING,AND LAND USES: Comp Plan: Single Family Residential(SFR) North Zoning: Single Family Residential Urban(R-3) Uses: Single-family home Comp Plan: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) South Zoning: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) Uses: Vacant Comp Plan: Multifamily Residential(MFR) East Zoning: Multifamily Residential(MFR) Uses: Multifamily residences (44 units) Comp Plan: Single Family Residential(SFR) West Zoning: Single Family Residential Urban (R-3) Uses: Single-family home IMPLICATIONS: The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing, retail,multifamily,and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials."McDonald Road is an improved north-south Minor Arterial that is consistent with the description of the CMU designation. The proposed amendment provides flexibility that can be used to support the applicants indicated desire to expand the McDonald Professional Center use to the subject property. Changing the designation to CMU,increases the allowed types of uses to include office and parking. The designation change and rezone of the site to CMU allows for a broader range of uses than the R-3 zone permits,including retail and office uses.The residences to the north and west are likely to experience impacts from the increased intensity of use on the property.Any development on the property will be subject to the adopted transitional provisions to minimize the impacts of the allowed uses.The transitional provisions include height limitations, screening and landscaping requirements.

B. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO SEPA 1. Findings: Pursuant to Title 21 (Environmental Controls) SVMC, the lead agency has determined that the proposal does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). The city issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for the proposal on February 21, 2020. The determination was made after review of a completed environmental checklist, the application, Titles 19, 21, and 22 of the SVMC, a site assessment, public and agency comments, the Comprehensive Plan and associated Environmental Impact Statement. 2. Conclusion(s): The procedural requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and Title 21 SVMC have been fulfilled. C. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT AND REZONE 1. Compliance with Title 17(General Provisions)of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code a. Findings: SVMC 17.80.140(H). Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Rezone Approval Criteria i. The City may approve Comprehensive Plan amendments and area-wide zone map amendments if it finds that: (1) The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment; Analysis: The proposed amendment changing the land use designation from SFR to CMU has a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as "allow[ingj for light manufacturing, retail, multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north- south arterials."McDonald Road is an improved north-south Minor Arterial that is consistent with the description of the CMU designation. Page 3 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0001 06/03/20 Additionally, the proposed amendment provides flexibility that can be used to support the applicants indicated desire to expand the McDonald Professional Center use on the subject property. Changing the designation to CMU, increases the allowed types of uses to include office and parking. Increasing office and parking opportunities in the McDonald Road corridor has a substantial benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. The amendment area is not covered by critical areas or designated natural resources. The public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment are promoted by standards established by the state and the City's regulations. (2) The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; Analysis: The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of office use on a designated Minor Arterial with supporting infrastructure. The proposal is consistent with goals of GMA and the Comprehensive Plan. (3) The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; Analysis: The amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions from the 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan. However, the two parcels to the south of the proposed amendment were changed from Office to CMU as part of the 2016 legislative update as part of a larger overhaul to eliminate the Office designation, and the owner of the subject property is the same owner of the McDonald Professional Center. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Analysis: The amendment is not in response to a mapping error. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: While not directly identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure. The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City: ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. T-G2 Ensure that transportation planning efforts reflect anticipated land use patterns and support identified growth opportunities. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Page 4 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0001 06/03/20 Analysis: The change to CMU will allow for expanded office and office related uses such as parking. The change could result in more intensive development in the future, though the site immediately to the south is vacant and designated and zoned CMU. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers,and lakes; Analysis: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance ensures adequate protection of the critical areas and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The property is adjacent to CMU to the south and MFR to the east. To the north and west are existing single family homes on SFR designated properties. If approved, the development of the site will be subject to the transitional provisions adopted in the development regulations that will ensure projection of the adjacent homes to the north and south. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the south and east. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis: McDonald Road is a Minor Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change. While the subject property was not considered in the 2016 legislative update, the property immediately to the south was part of the 2016 analysis. The projected LOS for McDonald Road in 2040 is A-C, and no mitigations or transportation projects are planned for this area of McDonald Road within the 20- year planning horizon. Additionally, the subject property is approximately 0.5 acres and its overall impact to the transportation system is minimal. The subject property and the property immediately to the south are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of office in this area is ideal because of the supporting infrastructure that is in place. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; Analysis: The proposed change would allow the property to support the expansion of the McDonald Professional Center, increasing employment opportunities and growing the City's economy. The change will benefit the City and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Page 5 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0001 06/03/20 Analysis: The proposal would add approximately 0.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited, the CMU designation in this places allows for the expansion of an existing office development on the McDonald Road corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: There is one dwelling unit proposed to be removed. While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur and therefore the City would lose one single family house as a result of the amendment. The change is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. There will be no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services, Public and Private Utilities, Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. Conclusion(s): For the reasons outlined above the proposed amendment is consistent with SVMC 17.80.140(H). 2. Consistency with the Comprehensive Plan a. Findings:The amendment is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.The Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors.It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue,and the north-south arterials." McDonald Road is an improved north-south Minor Arterial that is consistent with the description of the CMU designation. Additionally, the amendment is supported by the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-GI Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. T-G2 Ensure that transportation planning efforts reflect anticipated land use patterns and support identified growth opportunities. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment is consistent with the City's adopted Comprehensive Plan. 3. Adequate Public Facilities a. Findings: The Growth Management Act(GMA) and the City's Comprehensive Plan requires that public facilities and services be adequate to serve the development at the time the development is available for occupancy. Page 6 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0001 06/03/20 The area is currently served with adequate public facilities and services.Modern Electric Water Company,Spokane County Environmental Services,Spokane Valley Fire District,and Central Valley School district provide water, sewer, and fire protection and schools services in this area. The projected LOS for McDonald in 2040 is A-C, and no mitigations or transportation projects are planned for this area of McDonald within the 20-year planning horizon. Urban services are available. Specific site needs,including transportation will be addressed at the time a development is proposed for the site. b. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment will have adequate urban services at the time of development. D. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO PUBLIC COMMENTS 1.

To provide for a parking area when the applicant's adjacent office property is expanded. 2. Describe how the proposed changed meets the approval criteria below; a. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment; The proposed amendment to CMU would enable the expansion of the existing CMU office site pursuant to adopted performance standards of the adopted Municipal Code. b. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of ROW 36.70A and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; This is being submitted and processed pursuant to adopted amendment procedures. c. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; N/A d. The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; and N/A e. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment enables the applicant to expand an existing medical office complex per the demands of this location. The subject property expands the existing office site for building and parking purposes, thus responding to market demand and in compliance with applicable development regulations. 3. Describe how the proposal addresses the following specific factors; a. The effect upon the physical environment; The physical environment is urban and consist of various office and apartment complexes in proximity to the subject site. Furthermore, the adjacent property is designated Community Mixed Use, thus allowing more variations of such bulk and scale. b. The effect on open space, streams, rivers, and lakes; N/A c. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; The site is adjacent to existing CMU office uses and will be made a part of the parking area when the office complex is expanded. The orientation is to McDonald Rd and faces 2 story apartments across McDonald. The existing office use has demonstrated compatibility with the surrounding residential uses and this extension will be similar to these improvements. Landscape screening has effectively buffered the current use. d. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation, parks, recreation and schools; This amendment enables the expansion of an existing office building. No new utilities or public services will be needed. The site is served with all urban services and no new utilities are anticipated. The frontage along McDonald is currently improved with sidewalks and a center turn lane for safe ingress and egress. e. The benefit to the neighborhood, city and region; This allows the market demand for office services to remain consolidated into one site rather than displacing it into multiple sites. f. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density, and the demand for such land; The site is a half-acre site and adjoins an existing major office development. This site will become part of the common office complex and provide additional parking as requested by tenants and users of the site. g. The current and projected population density in the area; The area is a mix of Community Mixed Use, Multi-Family and Single-Family zoned properties. Projected population density is unknown. This will eliminate one dwelling unit. h. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed CMU designation adjoins existing CMU designations and has no effect upon roads, public services or other elements of the comprehensive plan.

Between this building and the subject property is a vacant portion of CMU zoned property which will be the focal point of future office expansion. With the approval of this request, the 2nd phase of office expansion can be optimized with this parcel as additional parking area. The subject property contains a single-family residence and was recently purchased by the applicant. Part of the purchase agreement allows the seller to use the house pending completion of their future home site. In addition, the seller has permission to use whatever material from this house as part of the future home construction. Then, upon vacation, the house will be demolished, and the site cleared for future office parking. As stated in the application narrative,the site is suitable for this planned expansion based upon the current land use pattern and improvements to the area. There are other two- story apartment complexes nearby and the orientation of the expansion is away from single-family housing and does not rely upon access to local access streets. Furthermore, McDonald is fully improved with adequate sidewalks, turning lanes and arterial improvements. If approved, this one-half acre addition merely provides for parking demands of the medical office uses and optimizes the development of this combined site.

PURPOSE OF CHECKLIST: The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), chapter 43.21C RCW, requires all governmental agencies to consider the environmental impacts of a proposal before making decisions. An environmental impact statement(EIS) must be prepared for all proposals with probable significant adverse impacts on the quality of the environment.The purpose of this checklist is to provide information to help you and the agency identify impacts from your proposal (and to reduce or avoid impacts from the proposal, if it can be done) and to help the agency decide whether an EIS is required. INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICANTS: This environmental checklist asks you to describe some basic information about your proposal.Governmental agencies use this checklist to determine whether the environmental impacts of your proposal are significant, requiring preparation of an EIS.Answer the questions briefly,with the most precise information known, or give the best description you can. You must answer each question accurately and carefully, to the best of your knowledge. In most cases,you should be able to answer the questions from your own observations or project plans without the need to hire experts. If you really do not know the answer, or if a question does not apply to your proposal,write "do not know" or"does not apply." Complete answers to the questions now may avoid unnecessary delays later. Some questions ask about governmental regulations, such as zoning, shoreline, and landmark designations. Answer these questions if you can. If you have problems, the governmental agencies can assist you. The checklist questions apply to all parts of your proposal, even if you plan to do them over a period of time or on different parcels of land. Attach any additional information that will help describe your proposal or its environmental effects.The agency to which you submit this checklist may ask you to explain your answers or provide additional information reasonably related to determining if there may be significant adverse impact. USE OF CHECKLIST FOR NON-PROJECT PROPOSALS: Complete this checklist for non-project proposals, even though questions may be answered "does not apply." IN ADDITION, complete the SUPPLEMENTAL SHEET FOR NON-PROJECT ACTIONS (Part D). SEPA CHECKLIST ��,m e �- 40 Val 1e y For non-project actions, the references in the checklist to the words "project," "applicant," and "property or site" should be read as "proposal," "proposer," and "affected geographic area," respectively.

McDonald Chas: On Monday, March 23, we spoke about the building permit on the property on McDonald. After our discussion, I was not very happy about the way the Planning Commision had changed the wording of the zoning permits that you issue. The words MIXED USE can mean many things. Business, Apartment, Medical, Auto Shop, Used Car Lot, etc. However you did tell me the person applying for the permit was planning on a Medical Buiding, although he could change his mind and build a Apartment Building. In the best interest of the people living in the city, it would be more helpful to be more clear of the type of building on said properties. This open end permitting can really turn into a bad situation. I do realize this type of zoning makes it much easier for you to monitor. But please consider the people you represent. Thank you for taking time to talk with me and please pass this on to the rest of the board and have a discussion. Respectfully, Selma Hair 12820 E.

ATTACHMENTS: Exhibit 1: Application Exhibit 6: SEPA Checklist Exhibit 2: Vicinity Map Exhibit 7: Environment Determination Exhibit 3: Comprehensive Plan Map Exhibit 8: Notice of Public Hearing Exhibit 4: Zoning Map Exhibit 9: Agency and Public Exhibit 5: Aerial Comments A. BACKGROUND INFORMATION The Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map amendment is a privately-initiated request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation of parcel 35133.2321 from Industrial(I)to Regional Commercial (RC)and to change the Zoning District from Industrial(I)to Regional Commercial(RC). The stated intent of the proposal is to allow the subject property to be combined with the two properties to the south fronting Sprague. The existing use on the property is a paved parking lot. The site is flat and does not contain any critical areas.The property is south of a vacant used motor vehicle dealership. The properties to the north are industrial food manufacturing(Franz Bakery)and industrial manufacturing. The properties on the west are regional commercial uses(Home Depot)and to the east is I-90. The property is served by Sprague Avenue, a principal arterial,which at this location is a six-lane cross- section with dedicated left and right turn lanes and two-through lanes in each direction. The Average Page 1 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 Daily Traffic(ADT) for this segment of Sprague is just over 20,000 vehicular trips per day with a level of service of D. The Sprague Avenue and Fancher Road intersection is identified as being reconstructed with concrete in the 10-20 year timeframe. PROPERTY INFORMATION: Size and Characteristics: The property consists of one parcel totaling 2.98 acres in size with frontage on Sprague Avenue and Fancher Road(no access on Fancher). Comprehensive Plan: Industrial (I) Zoning: Industrial (I) Existing Land Use: Vacant paved lot. SURROUNDING COMPREHENSIVE PLAN,ZONING,AND LAND USES: Comp Plan Industrial(I) North Zoning: Industrial(I) Uses: Industrial manufacturing Comp Plan: Regional Commercial(RC) South Zoning: Regional Commercial(RC) Uses: Vacant(former used motor vehicle sales) Comp Plan: Industrial(I) East Zoning: Industrial(I) Uses: I-90 right-of-way Comp Plan: Regional Commercial(RC) West Zoning: Regional Commercial (RC) Uses: larger format retail(Home Depot) IMPLICATIONS: The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the RC designation as"Allows for range of commercial development. It includes areas like Auto Row along Sprague Avenue,the Valley Mall, and areas along arterials near Interstate 90. Generally,the development in these areas serve the region." Sprague Avenue contains retail services that meet the needs of the larger region: Costco,Walmart,Home Depot are all located in this area on property designated RC. The I zone would not allow the development of a retail sales and service use. Changing the land use designation and zoning from Ito RC would allow uses similar to nearby uses and will not negatively impact the area. APPLICATION PROCESSING: Chapter 17.80 Permit Processing Procedures in the SVMC. The following summarizes key application procedures for the proposal.

Page 2 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 B. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO SEPA 1. Findings: Pursuant to Title 21 (Environmental Controls) SVMC, the lead agency has determined that the proposal does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). The City issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for the proposal on February 21, 2020. The determination was made after review of a completed environmental checklist, the application, Titles 19, 21, and 22 of the SVMC, a site assessment, public and agency comments, the Comprehensive Plan and associated Environmental Impact Statement. 2. Conclusion(s): The procedural requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and Title 21 SVMC have been fulfilled. C. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT AND REZONE 1. Compliance with Title 17(General Provisions) of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code a. Findings: SVMC 17.80.140(H). Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Rezone Approval Criteria i. The City may approve Comprehensive Plan amendments and area-wide zone map amendments if it finds that: (1) The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment; Analysis: The proposed amendment provides the opportunity to create a parcel of greater depth to provide for larger format structure. Based on the application, the intent is to combine the two RC parcels to the south with the proposal. Both the Industrial and Regional Commercial designations and zoning districts allow for intensive uses.Providing opportunity for development and redevelopment where there is existing infrastructure has a substantial benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. The amendment area is not covered by critical areas or designated natural resources. The public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment are promoted by standards established by the state and the City's regulations. (2) The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; Analysis: The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to aggregate parcels in an area that is already served by supporting infrastructure. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. (3) The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; Page 3 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 Analysis: The amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions from 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Analysis: The amendment is not in response to a mapping error and would not correct any error. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: While not identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan includes the following goals and policies that support increasing employment opportunities while taking advantage of existing supportive infrastructure. The proposed amendment contributes to the long-term success of the City by: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The change to RC will allow uses similarly allowed along the Sprague corridor. The change may result in a more people oriented active use in the area versus a vacant or industrial use, but the intensity would be similar to existing nearby uses. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers,and lakes; Analysis: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed when future development occurs and stormwater associated with commercial development will be retained and treated on the site. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The property is adjacent to RC to the west and south; and Ito the north and east. To the north are existing industrial developments and users. To the south is a vacant used motor vehicle sales lot that is under the same ownership. To the west is Page 4 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 Home Depot. The RC designation will increase the intensity of people potentially visiting the site, this intensity is similar as the neighbors in the area. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis:Sprague Avenue is a Principal Arterial and is expected to accommodate the projected change. The 20-year Transportation Improvement Plan identifies a concrete intersection at Sprague and Fancher by 2039. The existing and projected LOS for this segment of Sprague Avenue is D within City's adopted standard. Additionally, the change from Ito RC is expected to have a minimal impact to the transportation network and other utilities. The subject property and the property immediately to the south are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of RC related uses in this area is ideal because of the supporting infrastructure that is in place. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region; Analysis: The proposed change would allow the property to be combined with the two properties fronting Sprague Avenue, increasing employment opportunities and growing the city's economy. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The proposal would add approximately 3 acres of RC property to the 809 acres of existing RC designated property within the city. As of 2018 there are approximately 111 acres of vacant RC property within the city. The RC designation in this places allows for development of RC on the Sprague Avenue corridor in an area supported by existing infrastructure. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under RC standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: Under the existing conditions the subject property is a paved vacant lot. It appears the property was used in conjunction with the RC designated property to the Page 5 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 south for used motor vehicle sales, which is presently vacant. The change of the property from I to RC will not impact current or projected population density in the area. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The RC designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities, Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. Conclusion(s): For the reasons outlined above the proposed amendment is consistent with SVMC 17.80.140(H). 2. Consistency with the Comprehensive Plan a. Findings:The amendment is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.The Comprehensive Plan describes the RC designation as "Allow[s] for range of commercial development. It includes areas like Auto Row along Sprague, the Valley Mall, and areas along arterials near Interstate 90. Generally,the development in these areas serve the region." This area of Sprague contains retail services that meet the needs of the larger region: Costco, Walmart, Home Depot are all located in this area.Allowing the subject property to develop under RC provision is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. Additionally, the amendment is supported by the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-G1 Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley. ED-P6 Promote the development or redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties, particularly those with potential to serve as a catalyst for economic development. LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-G3 Support the transformation of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas into accessible districts that attract economic activity. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment is consistent with the City's adopted Comprehensive Plan. 3. Adequate Public Facilities a. Findings: The Growth Management Act(GMA) and the City's Comprehensive Plan requires that public facilities and services be adequate to serve the development at the time the development is available for occupancy. The area is currently served with adequate public facilities and services. Avista, Spokane County Environmental Services, Spokane Valley Fire District, Spokane County Water District #3,and Spokane District#81 provide electric and gas,sewer,fire protection,water,and schools services in this area. The existing and forecast level of service for the Sprague and Fancher intersection is D which is acceptable with the City's adopted standards. The only mitigation planned within the 20-year planning horizon is reconstructing the Sprague and Fancher intersection with concrete.Urban services are available. Specific site needs will be addressed at the time a development is proposed for the site. Page 6 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0002 06/03/20 b.

Our company is requesting this amendment to rezone the parcel along North Fancher Road from Industrial (I) to Regional Commercial (RC) zoning to accommodate a future development which will be constructed across all three parcels, and will have future uses designated under Regional Commercial zoning. Our company believes that this parcel is ideally located for permitted uses within the Regional Commercial (RC) zone, due to it being adjacent to other Regional Commercial properties and Interstate-90. Additionally, we believe that this amendment will fully support the economic development goals and policies set forth in the current edition of the City of Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan. 2. A) The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment in a number of ways. The proposed zoning change would keep Regional Commercial uses in the same area as laid out in the current comprehensive plan, thus keeping Regional Commercial uses separate from any residential areas, open space, or other pedestrian-oriented uses. The soil in the subject parcels is mostly covered with asphalt at the current time, but will be tested prior to any future development to ensure that proper protection of the environment is maintained at all times. B) This amendment is consistent with the City of Spokane Comprehensive Plan due to its alignment with the goals and policies of the Economic Development element. Page 1 of 3 Specifically, this proposed amendment would align with ED-G1, ED-G3, ED-G4, and ED- G6, while also being supported by the economic development policies laid out in the Economic Development element. C) Under the proposed amendment, it is not anticipated that there would be any substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies. D) The proposed amendment does not address or correct any obvious mapping error in the Comprehensive Plan. E) The proposed amendment does not address an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. 3. A) The effect of this proposal on the physical environment will be minimal. Future development will require the site to be graded, due to an elevation change between the two lower parcels (35133.2403 and 35133.2404) and the subject upper parcel (35133.2321). If anything, the physical environment will be improved, as a contemporary new commercial building for Regional Commercial uses will replace an old used car lot and dilapidated building. B) The subject parcel, as mentioned above, is situated near the corner of North Fancher Road and East Sprague Avenue, where there is no designated open space or any existing natural areas or sources of water present that could be disturbed by any future development that may take place on the parcels. C) The proposed amendment will be highly compatible with adjacent land uses, due to all adjacent uses being either (RC) or (I) so there would not be any negative impact anticipated on the surrounding neighborhoods. The area surrounding the parcels that the proposed amendment would affect currently has a high amount of traffic with East Sprague Avenue being classified as a principal arterial, so any increase in traffic could be easily handled by Sprague Avenue and by North Fancher road, which is classified as a minor arterial. Page 2 of 3 D) The impact on community facilities would be minimal due to the existence of adequate utilities, roads, public transportation, parks, recreation, and schools in the area. Future development may cause short-term one-lane closures of North Fancher Road for short periods of time during construction, but the time frame for such closures would be limited. E) The primary benefit to the neighborhood, city and region would be an economic one in that new family-wage jobs would be increased with the addition of new tenants in the proposed commercial building. A secondary benefit is one of an aesthetic nature and has already been mentioned, i.e. the replacement of an old, used car lot and building with a contemporarily-styled new commercial building accented with attractive landscaping. F) The total acreage for the proposed commercial site is approximately 5 1/2 acres. Density impact to the area should be minimal as adequate entrances and exits are planned from the site, along with plenty of parking for employees, customers and visitors. The demand for such use of the land is high, as demonstrated by the success of the many other commercial properties along East Sprague Avenue. G) The current population density of the area is minimal, as there is practically no residential housing built in the industrial/commercial zones in which the subject property is located. The projected population density in the area will not be affected by the development. H) It is not anticipated that there will be any effects upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan.

T € Trip Distribution and Generation Letter, if requested by MN- • It SUB # r REV. # PURPOSE OF CHECKLIST: ._ The State Environmental Policy Act(SEPA), chapter 43.21C RCW, requires all governmental agencies to consider the environmental impacts of a proposal before making decisions. An environmental impact statement(EIS) must be prepared for all proposals with probable significant adverse impacts on the quality of the environment. The purpose of this checklist is to provide information to help you and the agency identify impacts from your proposal (and to reduce or avoid impacts from the proposal, if it can be done) and to help the agency decide whether an EIS is required. JNSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICANTS: This environmental checklist asks you to describe some basic information about your proposal. Governmental agencies use this checklist to determine whether the environmental impacts of your proposal are significant, requiring preparation of an EIS. Answer the questions briefly, with the most precise information known, or give the best description you can. You must answer each question accurately and carefully, to the best of your knowledge. In most cases, you should be able to answer the questions from your own observations or project plans without the need to hire experts. If you really do not know the answer, or if a question does not apply to your proposal, write "do not know"or"does not apply." Complete answers to the questions now may avoid unnecessary delays later. Some questions ask about governmental regulations, such as zoning, shoreline, and landmark designations. Answer these questions if you can. If you have problems, the governmental agencies can assist you. The checklist questions apply to all parts of your proposal, even if you plan to do them over a period of time or on different parcels of land. Attach any additional information that will help describe your proposal or its environmental effects. The agency to which you submit this checklist may ask you to explain your answers or provide additional information reasonably related to determining if there may be significant adverse impact. USE OF CHECKLIST FOR NON-PROJECT PROPOSALS: Complete this checklist for non-project proposals, even though questions may be answered "does not apply." IN ADDITION, complete the SUPPLEMENTAL SHEET FOR NON-PROJECT ACTIONS (Part D). For non-project actions, the references in the checklist to the words "project," "applicant,"and "property or site"should be read as "proposal," "proposer," and "affected geographic area," respectively.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION The Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map amendment is a privately initiated request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation for parcels 45094.0133,45094.0134,and 45094.0121 from Multifamily Residential(MFR)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU)and to change the Zoning from Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The existing use on parcels 45094.0133,45094.0134 is a 204 unit multifamily development(Revere Ridge) and a single-family residence on parcel 45094.0121.The site is moderate to steeply sloped and Page 1 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 does not contain any critical areas.To the east of the properties are duplexes and a self-storage facility,to the north is I-90,to the east are offices, and to the south are single family homes. The property is accessed via Union Road, a local access road that ends in a cul-de-sac at the properties. Union Road connects to Mission Avenue about 500 feet to the north and is approximately I/4 mile west of Pines Road.Union Road does not have sidewalks but sidewalks were installed along Mission in 2019, connecting to Pines on the east and Mission Park to the west.The Average Daily Traffic(ADT)for Mission Avenue at Union,in 2015,was estimated at just over 7,600 vehicular trips per day with a level of service of D. PROPERTY INFORMATION: Size and Characteristics: The properties consists of three parcels totaling 6.24 acres in size. Comprehensive Plan: Multifamily Residential(MFR) Zoning: Multifamily Residential (MFR) Existing Land Use: An apartment complex with approximately 200 units and a single- family home is located on one of the properties. SURROUNDING COMPREHENSIVE PLAN,ZONING,AND LAND USES: Comp Plan: Industrial(I) North Zoning: Industrial(I) Uses: I-90 Comp Plan: Single Family Residential(SFR) South Zoning: Single Family Residential Urban(R 3) Uses: Single-family homes Comp Plan: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) East Zoning: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) Uses: professional office Comp Plan: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) West Zoning: Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) Uses: Duplex homes IMPLICATIONS: The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing, retail,multifamily,and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials."Mission Avenue is an improved east-west Minor Arterial that generally meets the description of the CMU designation.While the subject properties do not have frontage on Mission,they are sandwiched between CMU properties to the east,west and portions to the north. The designation change and rezone of the site to CMU allows for a broader range of uses than the MFR zone,including retail and office uses.The CMU also would allow increased density. The residences to the north may experience impacts from the increased intensity of use on the property,though the Mission and Pines area already provides fairly intense uses.Any development on the property adjacent to the R-3 zone will be subject to the adopted transitional provisions to minimize the impacts to the neighboring zone. The transitional provisions include height limitations, screening and landscaping requirements.

B. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO SEPA 1. Findings: Pursuant to Title 21 (Environmental Controls) SVMC, the lead agency has determined that the proposal does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). The city issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for the proposal on February 21, 2020. The determination was made after review of a completed environmental checklist, the application, Titles 19,21,and 22 SVMC,a site assessment,public and agency comments,the Comprehensive Plan and associated Environmental Impact Statement 2. Conclusion(s): The procedural requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and Title 21 SVMC have been fulfilled. C. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT AND REZONE 1. Compliance with Title 17(General Provisions)of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code a. Findings: SVMC 17.80.140(H). Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Rezone Approval Criteria i. The City may approve Comprehensive Plan amendments and area-wide zone map amendments if it finds that: (1) The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment; Analysis: The proposed amendment changing the land use designation from Multiple Family Residential to (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) has a relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment. The adopted Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as "allow[ing] for light manufacturing, retail, multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors. It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue, and the north-south arterials."The subject properties are between CMU properties to the west, east, and south.Access is provided by Union Road via Mission Avenue. Mission Ave is a Minor Arterial. Changing the Page 3 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area with supportive infrastructure, which has benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. The amendment area is not covered by critical areas or designated natural resources. The public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment are promoted by standards established by the state and the City's regulations. (2) The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; Analysis: The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of the multiple family development on the site and the opportunity to provide the neighborhood will access to daily goods and services in a centralized area with adequate public facilities; there are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area to improve capacity. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the comprehensive plan. (3) The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; Analysis: The amendment does not respond directly to a substantial change in conditions beyond the owner's control. However, the 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan eliminated the Office designation generally replacing it with the CMU designation, which was the case for the parcels to the west, east, and south. While the 2016 plan changed the designation of the surrounding vacant lands from Office to CMU, the properties subject to the amendment request had a multiple family development and the designation of Multiple Family was not changed. The CMU designation provides more flexibility than the Office and Multiple Family designations. The changing of the surrounding properties from Office to CMU created a situation whereby the subject properties may not use their property to the similarly situated properties to the west, east, and south. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Analysis: The amendment is not in response to a mapping error and would not correct any error. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposed amendment adds little capacity to the CMU designation; all three parcels have existing structures and two have multiple family developments on them. Changing the designation from Multiple Family Residential to Corridor Mixed Use on an existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on developed parcels using pre-existing infrastructure and provide flexibility to add service retail oriented to the area. While the proposal does not address a direct deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policies that support the proposed change: LU-G1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. Page 4 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 L U-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-GI Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as commercial, office and higher residential development of the properties. The properties will have the opportunity to transition, add density and add a mix of uses to serve the surrounding neighborhood. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers,and lakes; Analysis: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcels are not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The 6.25-acre site is currently developed with a multiple family development and a one single family home. The adjacent use to the south is single family, to the west self-storage, to the east office, multiple family and vacant CMU. The CMU land use designation surrounds the amendment site to the west, east,and north. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations. If approved future development of the site will be subject to the transitional provisions adopted in the development regulations. Potential development consistent with the CMU zone will be compatible with properties to the west, east, and south. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhood is minimal.Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation,and schools; Analysis:Mission Avenue is a Minor Arterial. There are two projects in the 6-year TIP along Mission Avenue just south of this area, one of which is the intersection capacity improvement and signal modification at Pines/Mission. Site-specific improvements and their impact to this project would be identified through the development review process, and development on the parcels within the Mirabeau Subarea Study area. Page 5 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 The subject properties are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; Analysis: The proposed change would allow the property to increase density and support infill development in an area planned for growth. The change may support increased housing opportunities, office, employment, or access to daily goods and services. The change benefits the neighborhood, city, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-GI Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The proposal would add approximately 6.5 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the city. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited, the CMU designation in this place would allow for increased options for development including retail services serving the existing multiple family development. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: Under the existing conditions and there is one dwelling unit proposed to be removed. While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur and therefore the City would lose one single-family house as a result of the amendment. The change is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities, Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. Conclusion(s): For the reasons outlined above the proposed amendment is consistent with SVMC 17.80.140(H). 2. Consistency with the Comprehensive Plan a. Findings:The amendment is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.The Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily, and offices along major transportation corridors.It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue,and the north-south arterials."The subject properties are between CMU properties to the west,east,and south.Access is provided by Union Road via Mission Avenue.Mission Ave is a Minor Arterial. Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area with supportive infrastructure. Additionally, the amendment is supported by the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-GI Support economic opportunities and employment growth for Spokane Valley Page 6 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 ED-P3 Encourage businesses that provide jobs and grow local markets. LU-G1 Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. LU-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. H-G1 Allow for a broad range of housing opportunities to meet the needs of the community. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. CF-P2 Optimize the use of existing public facilities before investing in new facilities. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment is consistent with the City's adopted Comprehensive Plan. 3. Adequate Public Facilities a. Findings: The Growth Management Act(GMA) and the City's Comprehensive Plan requires that public facilities and services be adequate to serve the development at the time the development is available for occupancy. The area is currently served with adequate public facilities and services.Modern Electric Water Company, Spokane County Environmental Services, Spokane Valley Fire District, and East Valley School district provide water, sewer, and fire protection and schools services in this area. Regarding transportation,future development on the subject properties would be subject to the Mirabeau Subarea Update,which identified costs for developments within the area to ensure the City will have the street infrastructure needed to support planned development.As a result, it is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists or is programmed to exist with future road improvements on the City street system to accommodate the uses resulting from the CPA. Urban services are available. Specific site needs will be addressed at the time a development is proposed for the site. b. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment will have adequate urban services at the time of development. D. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO PUBLIC COMMENTS 1. Findings: Staff has received no public comments to date. Comments received following the date of this report will be provided to the Planning Commission at the June 11,2020 meeting. 2. Conclusion(s): 3. The scheduled public hearing on March 26,2020 was canceled due to COVID-19 and efforts to maximize social distancing.Prior to the cancellation,the Notice of Public Hearing(NOPH) was published on March 6,2020 and March 13,2020.The NOPH was also posted on site and mailed to residents within a 400-foot radius of the subject property on March 10,2020. Page 7 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 The public hearing was rescheduled for June 25, 2020. The NOPH was published May 29, 2020 and June 5,2020 posted on site on May 27, 2020 and mailed to residents within a 400- foot radius of the subject property on May 28,2020. E. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO AGENCY COMMENTS 1. Findings: Staff received one comment from the Washington State Department of Transportation requesting additional information on the impacts of the land use change on the state's transportation network. Agency Received Comments Comments Dated City of Spokane Valley Senior Traffic Engineer City of Spokane Valley Development Engineering City of Spokane Valley Building&Planning City of Spokane Valley Parks&Recreation Spokane Valley Fire Department City of Millwood City of Liberty Lake City of Spokane City of Spokane Valley Police Department Spokane County,Building and Planning Spokane County,Environmental Services Spokane County, Clean Air Agency Spokane County,Fire District No. 1 Spokane County,Fire District No. 8 Spokane County Regional Health District Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency Spokane Aquifer Joint Board Spokane Transit Authority(STA) Spokane Regional Transportation Council(SRTC) Washington State Dept of Commerce Washington State Dept of Ecology(Olympia) Washington State Dept of Ecology(Spokane) Washington State Dept of Fish&Wildlife Washington State Dept of Natural Resources Washington State Dept of Transportation X 12/11/19 Washington State Parks&Recreation Commission WA Archaeological&Historic Preservation Avista Utilities Inland Power& Light Modem Electric Water Company Central Valley School District#356 East Valley School District#361 West Valley School District#363 Century Link Comcast Model Irrigation District#18 Consolidated Irrigation District#19 East Spokane Water District#1 Vera Water&Power Page 8 of 9 Staff Report CPA-2020-0003 06/03/20 Spokane County Water District#3 Spokane Tribe of Indians 2. Conclusion(s): A Trip Generation and Distribution Letter(TGDL) was completed for the proposed amendment. The subject properties are within the updated Mirabeau Subarea Study, which identified costs for developments within the designated study area to ensure the City will have the street infrastructure needed to support planned development. If the land owners were to redevelop upon the approval of this Comprehensive Plan Amendment, a mechanism exists as outlined in the Mirabeau Subarea plan to mitigate for traffic impacts.As a result,it is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists or is programmed to exist with future road improvements on the City street system to accommodate the uses resulting from the CPA.No concerns are noted. F. CONCLUSION: For the reasons set forth in Section C(1 and 2)the proposed amendment to change the land use designation from MFR to CMU and the rezone from MFR to CMU is consistent with the requirements of the SVMC 17.80.140(H) and the Comprehensive Plan.

PL-06 V1.0 Page 5 of 5 Below in bold text are the approval criteria, in italic text is the analysis in responding to criteria. a. The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment; The proposed amendment would be entirely consistent with the surrounding zoning designations and thereby be consistent with public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment. b. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; The proposed amendment would modify the zoning and make all of the adjoining properties consistent with the CMU designation. c. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; The proposed amendment does not respond to a substantial change in conditions beyond the owner's control but rather modifies the uses of the property so that it may be developed consistently with the neighboring properties. d. The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or The amendment is not in response to a mapping error and would not correct any error. e. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. There is no apparent reason or justification for the differing zones in the Comprehensive Plan. Additional factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: a. The effect upon the physical environment; Other than adding structures to the parcels, the proposal will have no adverse effect on the physical environment. b. The effect on open space,streams, rivers, and lakes; The proposed change should have no effect on any open space, streams, rivers or lakes. c. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; The current zoning designation essentially does not allow the owners of Parcel #45094.0139 to utilize their property as the City does not allow the development of mixed zones in a single project. Since it is necessary for Parcel#45094.0121 to provide access to Parcel#45094.0139(as Parcel#45094.0139 does not otherwise have access), it is necessary for Parcel#45094.0121 to have its zoning designation modified so that Parcel#45094.0139 may be utilized. If the zoning for Parcel#45094.0121 is modified, the remaining two parcels(45094.0133&.0134)should be modified as well to be consistent with all adjoining parcels. d. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation, parks, recreation, and schools; The proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment should have no impact on utilities, roads, public transportation,parks, recreation and schools since this infrastructure is already in place and would merely be utilized by the community as a whole. e. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; The neighborhood would benefit as Parcel#45094.0121 would be able to be utilized as currently allowed by the Comprehensive Plan. f. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; The land quantity, location and demand for this land is such that it would be immediately utilizable in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan. g. The current and projected population density in the area; and While there may be no density limitation for the CMU zone, it will be necessary for the parcels to comply with the parking and transitional requirements imposed by the City of Spokane Valley. h. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. There should be no effects on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan.

PURPOSE OF CHECKLIST: The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), chapter 43.21C RCW, requires all governmental agencies to consider the environmental impacts of a proposal before making decisions. An environmental impact statement(EIS) must be prepared for all proposals with probable significant adverse impacts on the quality of the environment. The purpose of this checklist is to provide information to help you and the agency identify impacts from your proposal (and to reduce or avoid impacts from the proposal, if it can be done) and to help the agency decide whether an EIS is required. INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICANTS: This environmental checklist asks you to describe some basic information about your proposal. Governmental agencies use this checklist to determine whether the environmental impacts of your proposal are significant, requiring preparation of an EIS. Answer the questions briefly, with the most precise information known, or give the best description you can. You must answer each question accurately and carefully, to the best of your knowledge. In most cases, you should be able to answer the questions from your own observations or project plans without the need to hire experts. If you really do not know the answer, or if a question does not apply to your proposal, write "do not know" or"does not apply." Complete answers to the questions now may avoid unnecessary delays later. Some questions ask about governmental regulations, such as zoning, shoreline, and landmark designations. Answer these questions if you can. If you have problems, the governmental agencies can assist you. The checklist questions apply to all parts of your proposal, even if you plan to do them over a period of time or on different parcels of land. Attach any additional information that will help describe your proposal or its environmental effects. The agency to which you submit this checklist may ask you to explain your answers or provide additional information reasonably related to determining if there may be significant adverse impact. USE OF CHECKLIST FOR NON-PROJECT PROPOSALS; Complete this checklist for non-project proposals, even though questions may be answered "does not apply."

Chaz Bates,AICP I Senior Planner 10210 E.Sprague Avenue I Spokane Valley,WA 99206 509.720.5337 I cbates@spokanevalley.org July 2, 2020 Chaz Bates City of Spokane Valley 10210 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley, WA 99206 RE: Comments Regarding Proposed Amendments Chaz; I would like to submit this letter to clarify our position for the three parcels which we seek to amend the Comprehensive Plan from the zoning classification MFR to CMU. These three parcels are TPNs 45094.0134, 45094.0133 and 45094.0121. Two of these parcels are owned by Revere Ridge. The third is owned by Brill Properties (which is owned by a local developer of apartments). We have spoken with the City a fair amount about this proposed change. However, based on the comments from the Planning Commission, we feel that some issues were not communicated properly, and members of the Planning Commission were certainly not privy to our conversations. Let me start by saying that I think we would agree that there is a fair amount of parking on Union which inhibits the flow of traffic on the street. I believe this is something to which we can all agree, and I believe the concerns of the commissioners are legitimate. There have also been discussions about how best to address these concerns and fix any problem(s). However, it was our understanding that any issues would be addressed at the time of development, not at re-zoning. We therefore decided to not address any of these issues with the Planning Commission as any future actions related to these parcels would be hypothetical. We were afraid that anything we said may be misconstrued and we did not want to have the City feeling that we had misrepresented our true intentions, or that the owners would be bound by some preliminary comments. At the present time Revere Ridge is interested in possibly making some improvements to their apartments. They would also like to clean up the strip of land adjacent to 1-90 where an abandoned basketball court is located. Based on several conversations with the Building Department, it would be much easier for Revere Ridge to update their apartments if the Comprehensive Plan is amended as there are no density requirements for the CMU zone. While there may be no density requirements with the CMU zoning designation, there are other applicable requirements with which Revere Ridge would need to comply. These requirements would include fire access, water flow and parking. In terms of the concerns expressed by the Planning Commission, we would like those involved in the decision-making process to know the following as it relates to Revere Ridge: - At such time as Revere Ridge is updated and the lower area is paved for parking, the owners have no issues with the City restricting the on-street parking on Union. The owners of Revere Ridge feel that many of the vehicles parked on Union are a poor reflection on their apartment complex, especially those which are located at the entrance to their complex(i.e., older vehicles on stands which are being worked on and are present for an extended period of time). The owners are constantly asking their property managers to monitor and remove these vehicles. - If the Comprehensive Plan amendment is approved, the strip of land adjacent to 1-90 would be cleaned up and converted to on-site parking as part of the development. This additional parking would serve the needs of the residents of Revere Ridge and help relieve the current congestion on Union (which should benefit the neighboring properties). - At the present time Revere Ridge is contemplating removing approximately 20 of their garages and replacing them with 40 studio and one-bedroom apartments. The exact mix of units would be made based on market conditions (at the time of submittal) and is subject to approval by the Building Department (and the SVFD). As an FYI, Revere Ridge currently has 104 apartments and 52 garages. Please see the attached drawings by David Rodeback. If the Comprehensive Plan is amended, Revere Ridge would provide more detailed architectural and engineering for the Building Department to review as part of the development process. Brill Properties owns the third parcel which is subject to the proposed Comprehensive Plan amendment. Brill Properties also owns an additional, contiguous parcel (TPN 45094.0139) immediately to the east of TPN 45094.0121. ft is challenging for Brill Properties to develop their two parcels due to their layout as TPN 45094.0121 will provide access for both parcels. When jointly developing the two parcels, Brill Properties must comply with the more restrictive of the two zoning designations (i.e., the MFR). By rezoning TPN 45094.0121, it will allow Brill Properties to take advantage of the CMU on both parcels. Brill Properties has recently submitted a Phase 1 to construct three four-plexes. If the rezoning is approved, Brill Properties would like to construct additional apartments on these two parcels. It is my understanding that Brill Properties will have ample on-site parking for their residents and guests. Our goal is to accomplish the following by modifying the zoning to the three parcels: - Allow some additional apartment construction by Revere Ridge. Our understanding is that any changes are not a function of zoning but are subject to the requirements of the Building Dept. - Clean up the stretch of land adjacent to 1-90 where the abandoned basketball court is currently located by adding some on-site parking and thereby relieving congestion on Union Road. - Enable the owners of Brill Properties to maximize any apartments constructed on their land, which it really cannot do now even though TPN 45094.0139 is currently zoned CMU. Modifying the zoning would in fact allow additional uses. However, based on my conversations this is not the intent of the owners. The current owners develop and invest in apartments. Changing to an alternative use would require demolishing the existing and proposed investment which has already been made for apartments(which are occupied). The owners would simply like to utilize the CMU zone which the adjoining parcels to the east and to the west currently enjoy so that they may make additional investments in their properties. Please let me know if there are any questions. I have provided some diagrams of the parcels in question. In addition, Revere Ridge has forwarded some potential designs to provide the City an idea of their preliminary intentions. Sincerely, C)4\1/41 Jay Rambo `; *_,r .

Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley, WA 99206 RE: Comments Regarding Proposed Comprehensive Amendment CPA-2020-0003 Chaz; I wanted to pass along some additional comments regarding proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment CPA-2020-0003. I realize that the Planning Commission has issued their recommendation and my comments are obviously not going to change their minds. However,we would like to get our comments on the record as a) it is hard to know how best to convey our thoughts to the City Council in light of the current pandemic and b)the Planning Commission will likely have future Amendments to consider and this information may be useful for future decision making processes. Let me start by saying that I personally believe the Planning Commission took their role seriously and voted for what they honestly believe to be in the best interests of the great City of Spokane Valley. The Planning Commission voiced their concerns over the increased traffic on Union Road and the negative impact it would have on the neighboring property owners. The overriding concern was that any increased traffic would exacerbate the parking along Union Road and make local access more difficult. We would concur that the parking along Union Road is far from optimal. To this we all agree. It is also very clear that City staff recommended that the Comprehensive Plan be amended for these three parcels. We don't believe the fact of the staff recommendation is nearly as important as the reasons for their recommendations (which is what I would like to address in this letter). If we start with the premise that local access on Union Road is less than ideal (and you won't get any argument from us), it is a matter of how best to address the situation. I think there are two options. - The first is to do nothing and hope that the situation somehow rectifies itself. The existing uses were all approved at one time and are thereby grandfathered. The result of the Planning Commission's recommendation is to do nothing and not make things any worse. Things won't get any better, and hopefully they also won't get any worse. - The second approach is to sit down with the owners, engineers and architects to figure out if it makes sense to improve to the existing infrastructure to relieve the congestion and increase the water flow for fire safety. There are other elements but let me address these two issues. Before I get into the weeds, I hope no one is naïve enough to think that if the Comprehensive Plan is amended,that construction will begin on the site later this summer. This is not how the process works. Rather, the property owners will need to sit down and visit with the City staff as to how best to bring the existing infrastructure up to current standards. This will require extensive discussions, considerable engineering and a fair amount of time. No permits will be issued until all the concerns get resolved. I get the sense that if the Planning Commission approved the Comprehensive Plan amendment,that they felt additional construction would begin without the current shortcomings being addressed. Let me touch on the two infrastructure issues I see. The first is parking. The second is water flow. At the present time Revere Ridge has a strip of land on the northern boundary of their property which is approximately a half acre in size where there is an abandoned basketball court. I assume everyone who has driven east on 1-90 and taken the Pines exit has seen this land. One of the first things the new owners of Revere Ridge did was to contact me and see if we might be interested in buying the land and cleaning up this area for storage units. After several conversations with the owners of Revere Ridge and City staff, we determined that it would probably be best if Revere Ridge used to strip of land for parking should they ever wish to expand. Without engaging some engineers, it is difficult to get a precise count as to how many parking spots could be constructed on the northern strip of land (especially when you do not know exactly how many additional apartments would be built). However, based on the size of the area, it looks like there could be somewhere in the vicinity of 50 parking spots created. The preliminary architectural drawings would have 40 apartments being created on the second and third levels, while maintaining 20 ground level parking spaces (see attached). Based on a rough calculation, it appears that there could be as many as 30 additional parking spaces created over and above that which is required (50 new spots+20 ground level spaces—40 required stalls = 30 remaining). There appear to be approximately 8—10 cars parked along each side of Union Road. If the parking lot were constructed on the northern strip of land, it looks like this area would have more than enough room to handle the additional stalls required for the 40 apartments plus all the cars along Union Road, and still have additional spots available. This should relieve much of the congestion on Union Road. If the Planning Commission is going to take into account traffic flow and parking, I would think they will need an engineer to evaluate these matters, which I don't believe they have. If there is no engineer or other expert to advise the Planning Commission, I don't know how the Planning Commission will go about determining the adequacy of the traffic flow and parking, other than to just look at Union Road and give it a thumbs down. Attached are two diagrams of water lines maintained by MEWCO. The first shows the water lines before we constructed Wilbur Road Self Storage in 2017. The seconds shows what MEWCO would like to see if there is additional construction (and MEWCO has been in the loop and will not approve anything unless the existing water lines are improved). I assume the Planning Commission, nor the City Council is intimately familiar with water lines so I would like to make a couple of remarks. - Based on my conversations with MEWCO and the SVFD,the existing water lines do not meet the current standards of what would be required if Revere Ridge were to be constructed from scratch today.These water lines are deficient in two respects. First, many of the water lines are 4" in diameter and current regulations would require 8" - 12" lines. Second,the water lines terminate or dead end, whereas water line design now requires the lines to be looped. Looping the water lines with upsized pipes will dramatically increase the flow(which I would assume the SVFD will require if there is new construction). - If folks have a little time and would like to see a current example of the water lines, please come by and visit with me at Wilbur Road Self Storage. I promise I will not try to talk anyone into a storage unit or a U-Haul truck. Rather, I will show you our site where we installed an 8" line which is looped from Wilbur&Augusta through our property over to Bates&Augusta and has four fire hydrants installed. For those of you who have better things to do than talk to me, please see the water line we installed which is depicted on the attached diagram from MEWCO. Under the MFR zone, it makes no sense for Revere Ridge to grade their land and turn it into parking. Nor does it make any sense to start digging, upsizing water lines and repaving asphalt to service their existing apartments. However, if there are no density limitations on their land (per CMU), it may be financially viable for Revere Ridge to add some additional apartments and thereby justify the costs of updating the infrastructure. If the unused strip of land is utilized for parking and the water lines are upsized, this will benefit the surrounding properties as the traffic congestion will be alleviated and the water flow will be improved. If the Planning Commission is going to weigh in on the traffic as a basis for denying the Comprehensive Plan amendment, one would think they would also want to do so for the water flow. Again, I don't know if they have the expertise to evaluate the adequacy of the water flow and any modifications. When the Planning Commissions starts taking factors into account which are beyond their area of expertise and opining as to the adequacy of the infrastructure as a basis to approve or deny a Comprehensive Plan amendment, I think this becomes a rather slippery slope. I do not want to put words into the mouths of the City staff, especially since they will receive a copy of this letter and can speak to these issues much better than I could ever dream of. However, I believe that the reason why the staff has supported the Comprehensive Plan amendment is that they understand that any current inadequacies in the infrastructure will need to be addressed prior to any permits being issued. I don't mean to slight the Planning Commission (which was trying to do what is best for the great City of Spokane Valley), but I believe City staff is in a much better position to see the big picture and then evaluate the plans, the engineering and the nuances of a project (as that is their job). Please note that if the Comprehensive Plan is amended and the owners are not able to reach an agreement with the City on the extent of the improvements to be made to the infrastructure (and based on our conversations we are confident that an agreement could be reached), the City is no worse off. The only thing that will happen is some building permits will not get issued. The first shovel of dirt will not be moved until everyone agrees as to what needs to be done to improve the infrastructure and address any existing short comings. If the City Council is fine with the status of N. Union Road, the related infrastructure and the weed patch at the Pines exit off 1-90 and chooses not to approve the Comprehensive Plan amendment,then we understand. If the City Council would like to address these matters and find out what can be done to improve the site, we would suggest that you discuss with Jenny Nickerson and get her take on the specifics. If the existing infrastructure can be updated to provide better access and improved fire safety, then we think the amendment does fall within the criteria for approving the Comprehensive Plan amendment and would ultimately be a Win-Win for everybody. I appreciate those of you who took the time to read this letter and hear our thoughts. Two is my limit so I promise not to write any more letters regarding this matter. Please be safe.

This letter estimates the trip generation of the current zoning versus the trip generation that could occur if the land were developed under the proposed new land use. Project Description CPA-2020-0003 is bounded to the north by 1-90 and the Pines Road exit ramp and to the south by parcels zoned R-3 and CMU adjacent to the 11900 block of Mission Avenue, between Wilbur Road and Union Road. The CPA is situated between interchanges of 1-90's Exit 287 at Argonne and Exit 289 at Pines (SR27), as shown in Figure 1. r - I-90 Exit 289 1-90 Exit 287 Pines(SR-27) �I Argonne �l.. • Wires 1 ,.

Vicinity Map Trip Generation There are 3 parcels for this proposed comprehensive plan amendment totaling approximately 6.24 acres. Under the current zoning (MFR), the available density allows 22 apartments per acre. If these densities could be realized, 137 apartment units could be built within the area. There are currently 103 multifamily units within the area. This would allow for 35 additional MFR units to be developed. The total expected trips for existing and available property using the current land use is shown in Table 1 for both the AM and PM peak periods. Table 1.MFR Land Designation Generated Trips AM Peak Hour Trips PM Peak Hour Trips Allow- Volume Volume @ Directional Directional Land Use (220) Zoning able @ 0.46 0.56 PM AM Trips Distribution Trips per Distribution Units per Unit 23% 77% Unit 63% 37% In Out In Out Multifamily Housing (Low Rise) MFR 137 64 15 49 77 49 28 1 I Page Corridor Mixed Use under the City of Spokane Valley's (City) zoning allows for apartments, general and medical/dental offices, retail and commercial development, and storage uses. A land-to-building ratio of 4.5 is typical in the City, which would result in a building square footage of 60,403. Because of the site's area, opportunities with the proposed zoning includes more multifamily housing and potentially an extension of the storage unit (mini-warehouse) development to the west. This could result in 32 additional multi-family housing units and a 7,200 square-foot mini warehouse. The potential development if the Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment is permitted includes the land uses and expected peak hour trips summarized in Table 2. Table 2.

Trip Distribution & Net PM Peak Hour Trips Traffic Mitigation The City initiated an evaluation of the street network traffic operations through the Mirabeau Subarea Study in 2016 and the Mirabeau Subarea Study Update in 2019. The Mirabeau and North Pines Subareas identified in the 2019 update generally include the Pines Road (SR-27) corridor from Valleyway Avenue to Trent Avenue between University Road and Adams Road. The proposed CPA parcels are within the North Pines Subarea. The Mirabeau Subarea Study Update identified costs for developments within the designated areas based on trips generated within the area to ensure the City will have the street infrastructure needed to support planned development. If land owners were to redevelop upon the approval of this Comprehensive Plan Amendment, a mechanism exists as outlined in the Mirabeau Subarea plan to mitigate for traffic impacts. Redevelopment fees could be charged for a proportionate share of the new street improvements in lieu of a traffic analysis and mitigation. As a result, it is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists or is programmed to exist with future road improvements on the City street system to accommodate the uses resulting from the CPA. ,� E.UGEtti .Q�'oc 'NASryfy '9,P � �w "� 4ic t p)k 4 v -o p q.;.r p p ' 90' ficisT Fs, c , SlpNM-E� 3I ,Page COMMUNITY& PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT BUILDING&PLANNING DIVISION Spocr�YaFkane STAFF REPORT TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION v CPA-2020-0006 STAFF REPORT DATE: June 3,2020 HEARING DATE AND LOCATION: June 25,2020,beginning at 6:00 p.m.,remotely via Zoom.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION The Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map amendment is a city-initiated request to change the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Designation for parcel 45013.9024 from Industrial(I)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) and to change the Zoning from Industrial(I)to Corridor Mixed Use (CMU). The existing use on parcel 45013.9024 is East Valley School District's Walker Center,which includes EVSD administrative services and maintenance building. The building also has classrooms that were used for the District's professional and trade school services. The site is flat and does not contain any critical areas. The properties to the west,north, and east are industrial uses,to the south are retail service and industrial uses. The property has frontage along Sullivan but is accessed via B Street of the industrial park.B Street is a local access road that services the Spokane Industrial Park and connects the property to Sullivan Road Page 1 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 which is a Principal Arterial. The site is served by public transit Route 96 of Spokane Transit Authority (STA), and sidewalks only exist on Sullivan.The Average Daily Traffic(ADT)for Sullivan Avenue at B Street,in 2015,is estimated at just over 19,000 vehicular trips per day with a level of service of D.

FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT AND REZONE 1. Compliance with Title 17(General Provisions) of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code a. Findings: SVMC 17.80.140(H). Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Rezone Approval Criteria i. The City may approve Comprehensive Plan amendments and area-wide zone map amendments if it finds that: (1) The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare,and protection of the environment; Analysis: The proposed amendment provides more flexibility of uses on a property allowing East Valley School District to broaden and enhance their educational service mission. Under the Industrial zone educational activities are limited to professional, vocational and trade schools. While this may continue to be an essential component to EVSD curriculum,flexibility is needed to meet existing and future demand for other educational services. Changing the designation to Corridor Mixed Use, increases the allowed types of educational services legally permitted to occur in the existing facility. Increasing educational opportunities to local youth has a substantial benefit to public health, safety, and welfare. The amendment area is not covered by critical areas or designated natural resources. The public health, safety, welfare and protection of the environment are promoted by standards established by the state and the City's regulations. (2) The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of Chapter 36.70A RCW and with the portion of the City's adopted plan not affected by the amendment; Analysis: The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts thirteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to strengthen EVSD mission to provide for education of local youth in an area with adequate public facilities. The proposal does not conflict with any other GMA goals. The amendment is not in conflict with any other portions of the Comprehensive Plan. Page 3 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 (3) The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; Analysis: The amendment does respond to a substantial change in conditions from 2016 legislative update to the Comprehensive Plan.At that time the subject parcel was not changed from the designation in place since at least 2014. Since the 2016 legislative update, EVSD has experienced changes in enrollment and interest in vocational education, under the existing designation only professional, vocational and trade schools are allowed in the Industrial designation changing the designation to CMU allows EVSD to adapt the educational services they provide in a location they own and have made substantial improvements for educational purposes. The demographic and interest shifts are beyond EVSD control the proposed change allows them to continue to serve district educational needs. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Analysis: The amendment is not in response to a mapping error and would not correct any error. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: While not directly identified as a deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goal and policy that support workforce development and education, which are integral to the long-term success of the City: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The change to CMU will allow existing uses as well as more expanded educational uses. The change could result in more intensive development in the future, though the site is currently developed. There is no concern on effect of physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes; Analysis: There are no known critical areas associated with the site,such as wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat areas,frequently flooded areas or geologically hazardous areas. The parcel is not located within shoreline jurisdiction, and there are no known surface water quality or quantity issues. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed should future development occur. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The property is generally surrounded by Spokane Industrial Park to the north and east; however, the property is not part of the Spokane Industrial Park. The property to the south is designated and zoned Corridor Mixed Use. The institutional use on the proposed site is generally compatible with both the light industrial uses to Page 4 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 the north and east and the retail service uses to the south. The projected impact to the surrounding neighborhoods is minimal. Any future development will be evaluated for compliance with all municipal requirements as it relates to adjacent uses at the time of development. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis: B Street is a local access street and Sullivan Road is a Principal Arterial. There are two capacity related projects in the 6-year TIP near the project area: intersection improvement at Sullivan and Wellesley and improvement to Sullivan and SR 290 (Trent) interchange. The site is served by Spokane Industrial Park, Avista, Spokane Valley Fire District, and East Valley School district provide water and sewer, electricity and natural gas,fire protection, and school services in this area. The subject properties are considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; Analysis: The proposed change would allow the property and structure owned by EVSD to be used for educational purposes beyond professional, vocational and trade school use, increasing the school district's ability to provide educational services. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The proposal would add approximately 9 acres of CMU property to the 1,666 acres of existing CMU designated property within the City. While additional demand for CMU property may be limited, the CMU designation allows for additional educational uses, which has been indicated as needed from the school district. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and if developed under CMU standards the type of use and density would be appropriate for the location. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: Under the existing conditions and the Industrial designation there is very little population that resides in the area. While CMU allows residential development, it is not expected that residential development would occur. The proposed change in land use designation is not expected to have significant impacts to population density in the area. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The CMU designation will support the Economic Development goal and policy identified above. It would have very little to no effect on other elements of the Comprehensive Plan, including Land Use, Transportation, and Housing, Capital Facilities and Public Services,Public and Private Utilities,Parks and Open Space and Natural Resources. Conclusion(s): Page 5 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 For the reasons outlined above the proposed amendment is consistent with SVMC 17.80.140(H). 2. Consistency with the Comprehensive Plan a. Findings:The amendment is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.The Comprehensive Plan describes the CMU designation as"allow[ing] for light manufacturing,retail,multifamily,and offices along major transportation corridors.It is primarily used along Sprague Avenue,and the north-south arterials."The subject property is accessed via B Street and fronting Sullivan Road. Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allowed density on the sites in an area with supportive infrastructure. Additionally, the amendment is supported by the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: ED-G5 Support and encourage the development of a strong workforce that is globally competitive and responds to the changing needs of the workplace ED-P16 Support local educational institutions in the development of educational and training programs that meet the needs of businesses. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment is consistent with the City's adopted Comprehensive Plan. 3. Adequate Public Facilities a. Findings: The Growth Management Act(GMA) and the City's Comprehensive Plan requires that public facilities and services be adequate to serve the development at the time the development is available for occupancy. The area is currently served with adequate public facilities and services. Spokane Industrial Park, Avista, Spokane Valley Fire District, and East Valley School district provide water and sewer,electricity and natural gas,fire protection,and schools services in this area. Regarding transportation, there are two capacity related projects in the 6-year TIP near the project area: intersection improvement at Sullivan and Wellesley and improvement to Sullivan and SR 290(Trent) interchange. The expected volumes and corridor improvements necessary to maintain operations are identified and estimated for inclusion in City plans. It is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists or is programmed to exist with future road improvements on the City street system to accommodate the uses resulting from the CPA. Urban services are available. Specific site needs will be addressed at the time a development is proposed for the site. b. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment will have adequate urban services at the time of development. D. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO PUBLIC COMMENTS 1. Findings: Staff has received no public comments to date. Comments received following the date of this report will be provided to the Planning Commission at the June 11,2020 meeting. 2. Conclusion(s): The scheduled public hearing on March 26, 2020 was canceled due to COVID-19 and efforts to maximize social distancing. Prior to the cancellation,the Notice of Public Hearing (NOPH)was Page 6 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 published on March 6,2020 and March 13,2020.The NOPH was also posted on site and mailed to residents within a 400-foot radius of the subject property on March 10,2020. The public hearing was rescheduled for June 25,2020. The NOPH was published May 29, 2020 and June 5,2020 posted on site on May 27,2020 and mailed to residents within a 400-foot radius of the subject property on May 28,2020. E. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO AGENCY COMMENTS 1. Findings: Staff received one comment from the Washington State Department of Transportation requesting additional information on the impacts of the land use change on the state's transportation network. Agency Received Comments Comments Dated City of Spokane Valley Senior Traffic Engineer City of Spokane Valley Development Engineering City of Spokane Valley Building&Planning City of Spokane Valley Parks&Recreation Spokane Valley Fire Department City of Millwood City of Liberty Lake City of Spokane City of Spokane Valley Police Department Spokane County,Building and Planning Spokane County,Environmental Services Spokane County,Clean Air Agency Spokane County,Fire District No. 1 Spokane County,Fire District No. 8 Spokane County Regional Health District Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency Spokane Aquifer Joint Board Spokane Transit Authority(STA) Spokane Regional Transportation Council(SRTC) Washington State Dept of Commerce Washington State Dept of Ecology(Olympia) Washington State Dept of Ecology(Spokane) Washington State Dept of Fish&Wildlife Washington State Dept of Natural Resources Washington State Dept of Transportation X 12/11/19 Washington State Parks&Recreation Commission WA Archaeological&Historic Preservation Avista Utilities Inland Power& Light Modern Electric Water Company Central Valley School District#356 East Valley School District#361 West Valley School District#363 Century Link Comcast Model Irrigation District#18 Page 7 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2020-0006 6/03/20 Consolidated Irrigation District#19 East Spokane Water District#1 Vera Water&Power Spokane County Water District#3 Spokane Tribe of Indians 2. Conclusion(s): A Trip Generation and Distribution Letter (TGDL) was completed for the proposed amendment. Given the similarity and wide range in potential development between Industrial and Corridor Mixed Use,the resultant range in trip generation could net either an increase in trips or a decrease in trips. The ultimate trip generation is entirely dependent on the direction of development on the parcel and whether it remains as an educational use. As a result, any necessary mitigation is expected to be bore by the development at the time of development. The Sullivan Corridor Study, completed in 2015 and currently being updated, identified the improvements necessary to maintain operations. It is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists or is programmed to exist with future road improvements on the City street system to accommodate the uses resulting from the CPA.No concerns are noted. F. CONCLUSION: For the reasons set forth in Section C(1 and 2)the proposed amendment to change the land use designation from I to CMU and the rezone from I to CMU is consistent with the requirements of the SVMC 17.80.140(H)and the Comprehensive Plan.

PURPOSE OF CHECKLIST; The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), chapter 43.21C RCW, requires all governmental agencies to consider the environmental impacts of a proposal before making decisions.An environmental impact statement (EIS) must be prepared for all proposals with probable significant adverse impacts on the quality of the environment. The purpose of this checklist is to provide information to help you and the agency identify impacts from your proposal (and to reduce or avoid impacts from the proposal, if it can be done) and to help the agency decide whether an EIS is required. JNSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICANTS; This environmental checklist asks you to describe some basic information about your proposal. Governmental agencies use this checklist to determine whether the environmental impacts of your proposal are significant, requiring preparation of an EIS. Answer the questions briefly, with the most precise information known, or give the best description you can. You must answer each question accurately and carefully, to the best of your knowledge. In most cases, you should be able to answer the questions from your own observations or project plans without the need to hire experts. If you really do not know the answer, or if a question does not apply to your proposal, write "do not know" or"does not apply." Complete answers to the questions now may avoid unnecessary delays later. Some questions ask about governmental regulations, such as zoning, shoreline, and landmark designations. Answer these questions if you can. If you have problems, the governmental agencies can assist you. The checklist questions apply to all parts of your proposal, even if you plan to do them over a period of time or on different parcels of land.

Describe any systems, other than those designed for the disposal of sanitary waste, installed for the purpose of discharging fluids below the ground surface (includes systems such as those for the disposal of Stormwater or drainage from floor drains). Describe the type of system, the amount of material to be disposed of through the system and the types of material likely to be disposed of (including materials which may enter the system inadvertently through spills or as a result of firefighting activities). This is a non-project action changing the future land use map and does not evaluate a specific future use. 2. Will any chemicals (especially organic solvents or petroleum fuels) be stored in aboveground or underground storage tanks? If so, what types and quantities of material will be stored? This is a non-project action changing the future land use map and does not evaluate a specific future use. 3. What protective measures will be taken to insure that leaks or spills of any chemicals stored or used on site will not be allowed to percolate to groundwater? This includes measures to keep chemicals out of disposal systems. This is a non-project action changing the future land use map and does not evaluate a specific future use. 4. Will any chemicals be stored, handled or used on the site in a location where a spill or leak will drain to surface or groundwater or to a Stormwater disposal system discharging to surface or groundwater? This is a non-project action changing the future land use map and does not evaluate a specific future use. b. Stormwater 1. What are the depths on the site to groundwater and to bedrock (if known)?
