Dated this 7th day of September, 2021. Ben Wick, Mayor CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY Request for Council Action Meeting Date: September 7,2021 Department Director Approval: Check all that apply: ❑consent ❑old business Z new business ❑public hearing ❑information ❑admin.report ❑pending legislation ❑executive session AGENDA ITEM TITLE: First Reading Ordinance 21-011 Correcting SVMC 20.20.030(E) — Innocent Purchasers of Illegally-Created Lots. GOVERNING LEGISLATION: SVMC 20.20.030. PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION TAKEN: February 27,2018 passage of Ordinance 18-004 amending, in part, SVMC 20.20.030 relating to innocent purchasers of illegally-created lots; November 24, 2020 passage of Ordinance 20-024 amending chapter 20.20 SVMC. BACKGROUND: In 2018, Council adopted Ordinance 18-004, which clarified what constitutes a legal lot under City Code 20.20.030 in subsections (A) through (D). Included as subsection (E) was an exception whereby an innocent purchaser of an illegally-created lot (one not created in subsections (A) through(D)) could still potentially develop the lot. At the end of subsection (E)was a period. Following that was subsection (F), which states that if a lot is created other than through subsections (A) through (D), development shall still be allowed if doing so "...does not adversely affect the public interest." SVMC 20.20.030(F). Further, subsection (F) provides appropriate criteria for determining whether development on the illegal lot would "adversely affect the public interest." These criteria, in summary, consider whether the proposed use would be reasonably compatible with the surrounding properties. For example, you would not want an incompatible use or density like an apartment complex, or a coffee stand, in an R-1 zoning designation. As such, subsection (F) was intended to modify subsection (E) by providing conditions under which an illegally-created lot may be developed. In 2020, staff brought forward additional amendments to chapter 20.20 SVMC through Ordinance 20- 024. At that time,we were unaware that the codifier had removed the period at the end of subsection(E), a semi-colon put in, and the word "or" added. Subsequent investigation has determined that these changes were the result of an error by Code Publishing, the company that provides the City's on-line Code, and the error occurred between 2018 and 2020. The effect of this change from a legal standpoint is that an innocent purchaser apparently now has a unilateral right to develop an illegal lot, and the criteria pursuant to subsection(F)no longer needs to be met. This change was not intended by the City, was not brought forward in track changes so that Council would be aware of it,and appears to be wholly unintentional. Regardless, staff felt strongly that it should make Council aware of this error and request that it be changed back as quickly as possible to give effect to Council's prior policy directive on this issue. In theory, we may argue it was a scrivener's error by the codifier, and could be changed via request to Code Publishing,but there would still be a record of Ordinance 20-024 reflecting different language,thus creating a cloud on the validity of this subsection and Council's intent. Given this, staff proposes adoption of Ordinance 21-011 to reverse this error on the record. OPTIONS: (1) Suspend the rules and adopt on the first reading; (2) advance to a second reading; or (3) take other action as appropriate. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: I move we suspend the rules and adopt Ordinance 21-011 on the first reading. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS: None. STAFF CONTACT: Cary Driskell,City Attorney.

Draft CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY SPOKANE COUNTY,WASHINGTON ORDINANCE NO.21-011 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY, SPOKANE COUNTY, WASHINGTON,AMENDING SPOKANE VALLEY MUNICIPAL CODE 20.20.030 RELATING TO GOOD FAITH PURCHASERS OF ILLEGALLY-CREATED LOTS; AND OTHER MATTERS RELATING THERETO. WHEREAS, pursuant to Ordinance 18-004, City Council adopted amendments to Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC)20.20.030 relating to innocent purchasers of illegally-created lots; and WHEREAS,staff brought forward proposed amendments in 2020 to various aspects of chapter 20.20 SVMC, and Council approved Ordinance 20-024 that included those amendments; and WHEREAS, staff recently discovered that an erroneous and unrequested change was made by Code Publishing Company to SVMC 20.20.030. Staff was unaware of this error when it presented Ordinance 20-024 for amendment,resulting in Council adopting the erroneous language. The error was obviously not done in track change format, so would not have been noticeable to Council as an intended change; and WHEREAS, the change removed the period at the end of SVMC 20.20.030(E), and added a semi- colon and the word"or",fundamentally changing the relationship between subsections(E)and(F),making them alternatives rather than subsection (F)conditioning subsection(E), as intended in Ordinance 18-004; and WHEREAS, the change to SVMC 20.20.030(E) was never intended by Council, fundamentally changed the effect of subsections (E) and (F), and should be reversed back to that language adopted by Council for subsection(E)in 2018 through Ordinance 18-004 to give effect to Council's policy intent; and WHEREAS, this Ordinance does not represent any substantive or policy change by the Council and thus need not be presented for consideration and recommendation by the Planning Commission, and is further done to protect the health, safety,and welfare of the citizens of the City. NOW,THEREFORE,the City Council of the City of Spokane Valley ordains as follows: Section 1. Amendment of section 20.20.030 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code. Section 20.20.030 of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code is amended as follows: 20.20.030 Legal lot. Development shall be permitted only on legally created lots.A lot is created in compliance with applicable state and local land segregation statutes or codes in effect at the time the lot was created or binding site plan was approved including,but not limited to,demonstrating the lot was created through one of the following: A. Lots created through subdivision,on a plat approved by the City or Spokane County separately describing the lot in question; or B. Lots created through short subdivision,on a short plat approved by the City or Spokane County separately describing the lot in question; or Ordinance 21-011 Amending 20.20.030 SVMC—Innocent Purchasers of Illegally-Created Lots Page 1 of 2 Draft C. Lots created pursuant to a binding site plan process in effect at the time the binding site plan was approved by the City or Spokane County;or D.A division of land prior to March 13, 1978;provided,that: 1.A tax segregation request was received by the Spokane County assessor's office prior to said date; or 2.A legal instrument(s)pertaining to said division was filed on record prior to said date; and 3.All state and local land development regulations were met at the time the lot was created or can be met prior to the issuance of a building permit; or E. Development shall be allowed on a lot owned by an innocent purchaser.For purposes of SVMC 20.20.030(E), an"innocent purchaser"is an owner of the property,other than the original owner that created the lot, and who did not have actual notice that the lot was created by a means other than specified in SVMC 20.20.030(A)through(D). ef F. In the event a lot was created by a means other than as specified in SVMC 20.20.030(A)through(D), development shall be allowed on such lot if the development does not adversely affect the public interest. When determining the impact on the public interest,the City shall consider the following criteria: 1. Whether the proposed development is consistent with the public health, safety, and general welfare; 2. Whether the use meets the underlying zoning requirements and is consistent with the use of at least one adjoining property; and 3. Whether the lot was created on or before December 31,2016. In the event an illegally created lot does not meet the criteria of SVMC 20.20.030(A)through(F), a development permit shall not be issued until such time that a legal lot is created. Section 2. Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity or unconstitutionality shall not affect the validity or constitutionality of any other section,sentence,clause or phrase of this Ordinance. Section 3. Effective Date. This Ordinance shall be in full force and effect five days after the date of publication of this Ordinance or a summary thereof in the official newspaper of the City. PASSED by the City Council this day of September,2021.

Between winter 2021 and spring 2022, it is expected that TIB will make 40-50 awards given the available funding amount of$14.67 million. Eligible applicants must have an adopted Complete Streets Ordinance. Complete Streets Ordinance A complete streets ordinance should support each agency's practice of planning and building streets to accommodate all users, including pedestrians, access to transit, cyclists, and motorists. It formally recognizes a local government's commitment to provide safe, practical, and equitable transportation improvements for all its users. TIB's Complete Streets Program requires an ordinance to consider, not implement, complete street elements for all projects. The complete streets policy adopted by ordinance can be tailored to meet the needs, goals and context of each community, adjusting the extent to which certain facility types are considered for various types of street projects. This allows the City to evaluate each project uniquely from any other project in order to best evaluate and implement the applicable complete street improvements that are needed, practical, and feasible for each unique project. Spokane Valley has historically and consistently implemented complete street elements as part of its capital improvement projects; however, no formal ordinance has been created or adopted. By adopting a complete streets ordinance, the City is eligible to receive grant dollars for projects already planned, helping offset project costs to the City. TIB recognizes Smart Growth America's The Elements of a Complete Streets Policy as the basis for a successful complete streets policy, and the proposed ordinance will follow the same outline: 1. Set a vision. 2. Include all users and all modes. 3. Apply to all phases of all applicable projects. 4. Specify and limit exceptions, with high level approval required. 5. Emphasize connectivity. 6. Understood by all agencies to cover all roads. 7. Use best and latest design standards. 8. Complement the community's context. 9. Set performance measures. 10. Include implementation steps. OPTIONS: Move to advance Ordinance 21-012 to a second reading, with or without amendments. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Move to advance Ordinance 21-012, adopting a Complete Streets Policy, to a second reading. Please note: If the above motion is approved, staff will return on September 14, for the second reading of the proposed ordinance. If the ordinance is adopted, staff will subsequently propose a motion consideration requesting City Manager authorization to apply to TIB's Complete Streets funding program.

Ben Wick,Mayor ATTEST: Christine Bainbridge,City Clerk Approved As To Form: Office of the City Attorney Date of Publication: Effective Date: Ordinance 21-012 Complete Streets Policy Page 2 of 2 Exhibit A Section 1. Vision and Intent The purpose of this Ordinance is to adopt the City's Complete Streets Policy. The Complete Streets Policy as set forth implements a complete street concept in the planning and design of street projects in the City of Spokane Valley.The purpose of the Complete Streets Policy is to: 1. Promote healthy communities by encouraging walking, bicycling, and using public transportation for all ages, abilities, and economic levels, which benefits not only each user but also the vitality of the local economy. 2. Consider multimodal transportation infrastructure, for all users including: pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit, automobiles, freight, and emergency services. 3. Improve public safety by constructing sidewalks, dedicated bicycle facilities, medians, and pedestrian streetscape features. 4. Protect the environment and reduce congestion by providing safe alternatives to single- occupancy driving. 5. Preserve community character by involving local citizens and stakeholders to participate in planning and design decisions. 6. Improve the quality and safety of City streets that do not meet the current City Street Standards for right-of-way width by promoting multimodal transportation infrastructure through the use of acceptable design deviations. 7. Promote the use of multimodal transportation to reduce traffic congestion and foster lower vehicular emissions by providing more effective use of public rights-of-way with expanded opportunities to use alternate transportation methods. Section 2. Diverse Users As feasible,the City shall incorporate complete streets infrastructure into existing public streets to create a comprehensive, integrated, connected transportation network that balances access, mobility, and health and safety needs of all users regardless of age, physical ability, or preferred mode of travel, including, but not limited to, bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users, emergency responders, passenger vehicles, and freight traffic. Complete streets infrastructure includes design features that contribute to a safe, convenient travel experience for all users, including but not limited to: 1. Sidewalks and crosswalks; 2. Lighting; 3. Transit shelters/stops; 4. Bicycle accommodation; 5. Landscaping; 6. Use of raised medians for traffic safety,traffic flow and pedestrian refuge; 7. Adequate buffer areas for pedestrian safety, drainage and landscaping; 8. Lane widths sized for use and context of surrounding land uses; 9. On-street parking where appropriate for surrounding land uses; 10. Signage; 11. Level of connectivity to the existing transportation network. Ordinance 21-012 Complete Streets Policy— Exhibit A Page 1 of 4 Exhibit A Section 3. Applicable Projects The City of Spokane Valley will plan for, design and construct all new transportation systems to provide appropriate accommodation for pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation, and persons of all abilities to accommodate the ease of movement for all users across the City's urban landscape regardless of age, ability, or economic standing. Complete streets principles will be incorporated into City plans, rules, regulations and programs as appropriate to produce accessible streets. The City will integrate the complete street concept throughout all phases including design, planning, and rehabilitation of transportation facilities providing a fully connected network for all users. Complete streets design recommendations will be incorporated into all publicly funded projects as appropriate, including new construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, repair, repaving, major maintenance, and operations. Section 4. Exceptions The City shall incorporate complete streets principles into the early planning and design of transportation projects. However, not all roadways are suitable for all complete streets components; in some cases, a limited range of modal choices may be appropriate. Such circumstances may include the following: 1. Where the establishment of such facilities would be detrimental to public health or safety; 2. Where there is no documented current or anticipated need for accommodation for non- motorized roadway users or the street is not a current or planned transit route; 3. Where the project involves a roadway on which nonmotorized use is prohibited by law; 4. Where the cost for a particular complete street design recommendation would be excessively disproportionate to the need of that particular improvement, with due consideration given to future users; 5. Where there would be significant adverse environmental impacts to streams,wetlands,steep slopes, or other critical areas; 6. Where the inclusion in a small, isolated project would create a very short section of improvements with problematic transitions on either end or that are in an isolated area unlikely to be followed by similar improvements at either end resulting in a facility that would have no connectivity for users; 7. Where the project is routine maintenance of the transportation network that does not change the geometry or operations, such as striping, cleaning, sweeping, crack sealing, spot repair or other similar interim surface preservation measures; and/or 8. Where there is not sufficient existing right-of-way width available to accommodate complete street design recommendations or design deviations developed as part of Section 10(1). The exceptions in subsections (1) through (8) of this section require documentation and supporting data to be approved by the City Engineer upon review and recommendation from City staff. Ordinance 21-012 Complete Streets Policy— Exhibit A Page 2 of 4 Exhibit A Section S. Interagency Coordination The City will cooperate and foster partnerships with other planning and funding agencies including but not limited to: the Federal Highway Administration, Washington State Department of Transportation, Washington State Department of Health, Washington State Transportation Improvement Board, the Spokane Regional Transportation Council, Spokane County, Central Valley School District, East Valley School District, West Valley School District, residents, businesses, interest groups, and neighborhoods to ensure the needs of all agencies and groups are considered and that the principles and practices of complete streets are communicated and considered in their scoping, planning, design, construction, and maintenance activities. The City will specifically cooperate to ensure the transportation network flows between jurisdictions in accordance with local and regional road, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian plans. Section 6. Design Criteria The City Engineer or designated professional, along with assistance from other City staff, shall interpret, evaluate, and review design standards and guideline criteria for proposed transportation infrastructure. The City Engineer or designated professional shall gauge these standards with the industry's best practices including the exceptions of this policy, to incorporate the complete street concept of accommodating all users. Street Standards are listed in Title 22 SVMC. Stormwater standards are listed in the Spokane Regional Stormwater Manual. The City will also use the best practices and design solutions developed by other agencies and resources as related to each complete street element. Situations may present themselves where alternatives may be preferred to allow conformance with existing conditions, to overcome adverse topography, or to allow for more affordable solutions without adversely affecting safety, maintainability or aesthetics. Provisions will be made for design deviations to implement the complete streets policy. Section 7. Context Implementation of this policy shall reflect the context and character of the community's overall surroundings including the natural environment, current and planned buildings and land uses, demographics, street functions and current and expected transportation needs. Understanding of the localized surrounding built and natural environments allows roadway design decisions to be more flexible and sensitive to community values and to better balance economic, social and environmental objectives. Section 8. Performance Measures The application of the complete streets policy shall be continuously evaluated,to determine progress and effectiveness, as well as opportunity for improvement.The City should measure the success of this policy on an annual basis based on the frequency of projects that both consider and implement complete street elements. This may be tracked by the quantity of design deviations or documented complete street considerations.Additional performance measurements may include the quantity of additional facilities or facility-miles for non-passenger vehicle modes,such as xx curb ramps,xx bus stop shelter pads,or xx miles of bicycle lane, shared use path, or sidewalk. The annual summary should include qualitative and quantitative data categorized by mode to provide performance measurements. Specific performance metrics will be determined through further public engagement to determine community priorities. Ordinance 21-012 Complete Streets Policy— Exhibit A Page 3 of 4 Exhibit A Section 9. Project Selection Criteria The Community and Public Works Department shall incorporate Complete Streets elements as criteria in project prioritization for funding. All transportation projects are to document its consideration of all modes for all users and how or why they were or were not implemented with a project. Projects that better satisfy the intent of this Complete Street Policy may be more favorably supported during the project prioritization process.Any project that does not accommodate multiple modes will be required to provide documentation of exceptions as detailed in Section 4. Section 10.Implementation The City views the principles of this Complete Streets Policy as an essential component influencing decision-making in the planning and design of transportation facilities and improvements. To that end, the following actions are intended to implement this Complete Streets Policy.The list in this section should not be considered as a limiting factor in meeting the transportation needs of the community. 1. Develop generally acceptable design deviations to the existing street standards to ensure that they facilitate consideration of the design recommendations in this policy. 2. Consider the Spokane Valley Bike and Pedestrian Master Program and subsequent Comprehensive Plan recommendations for improving facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians. 3. Coordinate with STA in route and stop planning. 4. Support and encourage Community and Public Works staff, and appointed and elected officials to attend trainings, workshops, and webinars to improve the understanding and implementation of complete streets principles. Ordinance 21-012 Complete Streets Policy— Exhibit A Page 4 of 4 CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY Request for Council Action Meeting Date: September 7, 2021 Department Director Approval: Check all that apply: ❑ consent ❑ old business ® new business ❑ public hearing ❑ information ❑ admin. report ❑ pending legislation ❑ executive session AGENDA ITEM TITLE: First Reading Ordinance No. 21-013 adopting findings of fact supporting the adoption of Ordinance No. 21-009 and interim regulations to address transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, emergency housing, and emergency shelters GOVERNING LEGISLATION: RCW 35A.63.220; 36.70A.390; RCW 36.70A; HB 1220. PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION TAKEN: On July 20, 2021, City Council adopted interim regulations pursuant to Ordinance No. 21-009. On August 24, 2021, City Council conducted a public hearing on the adopted interim regulations. BACKGROUND: In 2021, the Washington State Legislature adopted Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1220 (HB 1220) regarding affordable housing and homelessness. Among various aspects, HB 1220 preempts the City from prohibiting transitional housing and permanent supportive housing in any residential zones or zones where hotels are permitted and preempts the City from prohibiting emergency housing and emergency shelters in zones where hotels are permitted. However, HB 1220 does allow cities to adopt reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity limits on such housing and shelters. HB 1220 provides definitions for permanent supportive housing, emergency housing, and emergency shelters, but does not define "transitional housing." The majority of HB 1220 became effective on July 25, 2021, although the provisions affecting emergency housing and emergency shelters are not effective until September 30, 2021. Currently, the City only regulates "transitional housing" and allows it in the multifamily residential zone through a conditional use permit. Due to the preemption established in HB 1220, absent additional City regulations on occupancy, spacing, and intensity, all transitional housing and permanent supportive housing are allowed in nearly all City zones with no limits other than generally applicable building code requirements. Beginning September 30, 2021, without additional City regulations on occupancy, spacing, and intensity, emergency housing and emergency shelters will be allowable in the RC (regional commercial), CMU (Corridor Mixed Use), IMU Industrial Mixed Use, and I (industrial) zones without any limits other than generally applicable building code requirements. Notably, as part of the 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendments, the City is proposing goals, policies, and strategies related to homelessness and affordable housing. Once adopted, the City will develop, consider and adopt appropriate regulations to govern land uses related to homelessness, including transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, emergency housing, and emergency shelters. While such review is occurring, applicants may submit applications for transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, emergency housing, and emergency shelters based on the preemption in HB 1220. There is a potential for significant impacts from such applications since the City does not have any occupancy, spacing, or intensity regulations for such uses. For example, there are currently no limits on how many beds a transitional housing facility could have, regardless of what zone it may be located within. Accordingly, staff believe that temporary interim regulations to provide for reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity limits on such uses are appropriate while the City processes the pending Comprehensive Plan amendment and develops permanent regulations regarding such housing and shelters. RCW 36.70A.390 and RCW 35A.63.220 authorize the City to adopt temporary interim development regulations for transitional, permanent supportive, and emergency housing and emergency shelters without utilizing the City's standard approval process through the Planning Commission, prior public hearing, and multiple readings by City Council. The interim regulations provide temporary regulations based on initial review of the issues surrounding such uses and ensures that new plans and regulations will not be rendered moot by intervening development.

Draft CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY SPOKANE COUNTY,WASHINGTON ORDINANCE NO.21-013 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF SPOKANE VALLEY, SPOKANE COUNTY, WASHINGTON, ADOPTING FINDINGS OF FACT JUSTIFYING THE ADOPTION OF ORDINANCE NO.21-009 AND THE ADOPTION OF INTERIM AMENDEMENTS RELATED TO INDOOR EMERGENCY SHELTERS, INDOOR EMERGENCY HOUSING, TRANSITIONAL HOUSING, AND PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING, AND OTHER MATTERS RELATING THERETO. WHEREAS, pursuant to Article 11, Section 11 of the Washington Constitution, the City is authorized to"make and enforce within its limits all such local police,sanitary and other regulations as are not in conflict with general laws," which includes the adoption of regulations governing land uses within the City; and WHEREAS, RCW 35A.63.220 provides that "A legislative body that adopts a moratorium or interim zoning ordinance without holding a public hearing on the proposed moratorium or interim zoning ordinance, shall hold a public hearing on the adopted moratorium or interim zoning ordinance within at least sixty days of its adoption,whether or not the legislative body received a recommendation on the matter from the planning agency. If the legislative body does not adopt findings of fact justifying its action before this hearing,then the legislative body shall do so immediately after this public hearing. A moratorium or interim zoning ordinance adopted under this section may be effective for not longer than six months, but may be effective for up to one year if a work plan is developed for related studies providing for such a longer period. A moratorium of[or] interim zoning ordinance may be renewed for one or more six-month periods if a subsequent public hearing is held and findings of fact are made prior to each renewal." RCW 36.70A.390 provides substantially similar language and authority for agencies planning under the GMA, including the City,to adopt interim zoning regulations; and WHEREAS, interim regulations enacted under RCW 35A.63.220 and/or RCW 36.70A.390 are a method by which local governments may immediately provide for reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity regulations for the housing and shelters mandated by HB 1220 while the City considers Comprehensive Plan amendments to add goals, policies, and strategies addressing homelessness that will enable the development of permanent regulations for indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing; and WHEREAS, RCW 35A.63.220 and RCW 36.70A.390 both authorize the enactment of a moratorium, interim zoning map, interim zoning ordinance, or interim official control prior to holding a public hearing,provided the City conducts a public hearing on the interim zoning regulation within 60 days of the date of adoption of the interim zoning regulation; and WHEREAS,in 2021,the Washington State Legislature passed Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1220(HB 1220)which became effective on July 25,2021. HB 1220 adopts amendments to the Growth Management Act and other associated statutes related to affordable housing and homelessness. Amongst other requirements, HB 1220 forbids municipalities from prohibiting transitional housing and permanent supportive housing from residential zones and zones where hotels are permitted. HB 1220 also forbids municipalities from prohibiting indoor emergency shelters and indoor emergency housing in zones where hotels are permitted beginning on September 30,2021. HB 1220 allows municipalities to adopt reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use requirements to protect public health and safety on indoor Ordinance 21-013 Page 1 of 5 Draft emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing, so long as such ordinances do not prevent siting sufficient housing for projected needs; and WHEREAS,pursuant to RCW 35A.63.220,RCW 36.70A.390,and HB 1220,on July 20,2021,the City of Spokane Valley City Council(City Council)adopted Ordinance No.21-009,which adopted interim regulations to establish reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use regulations for emergency shelters,emergency housing,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing; and WHEREAS, pursuant to RCW 35A.63.220, RCW 36.70A.390, and Ordinance No. 21-009, on August 24, 2021,the City Council conducted a public hearing on Ordinance No. 21-009 and the adoption of the interim regulations; and WHEREAS,City Council heard testimony from two interested members of the public at the public hearing; and WHEREAS,pursuant to RCW 35A.63.220 and RCW 36.70A.390,the City Council is required to adopt findings of fact after conducting the public hearing. NOW,THEREFORE,the City Council of the City of Spokane Valley ordains as follows: Section 1. Pursuant to RCW 35A.63.220 and RCW 36.70A.390,on August 24,2021,the City Council conducted a public hearing on Ordinance No. 21-009 and the adoption of interim regulations to establish reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use on emergency shelters, emergency housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing. The City Council hereby adopts the following as findings of fact in support of Ordinance No. 21-009 and the adoption of interim regulations therein: 1. In 2021,the Washington State Legislature passed Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1220 (HB 1220)which became effective on July 25,2021. HB 1220 adopts amendments to the Growth Management Act and other associated statutes related to affordable housing and homelessness. Amongst other requirements,HB 1220 forbids municipalities from prohibiting transitional housing and permanent supportive housing from residential zones and zones where hotels are permitted. HB 1220 also forbids municipalities from prohibiting indoor emergency shelters and indoor emergency housing in zones where hotels are permitted beginning on September 30, 2021. HB 1220 allows municipalities to adopt reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use requirements to protect public health and safety on indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing, so long as such ordinances do not prevent siting sufficient housing for projected needs. 2. The City has previously adopted regulations for transitional housing. 3. The City has not adopted zoning regulations specific to indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing, and permanent supportive housing, and the City's current regulations for transitional housing are more limited than allowed under HB 1220. 4. Without immediate adoption of interim regulations, indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing would be allowed in the zones specified in HB 1220 without any occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use regulations. Allowing the transitional, permanent supportive, and emergency housing and shelters without occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use standards creates a substantial likelihood of significant Ordinance 21-013 Page 2 of 5 Draft public health and safety issues for both residents within such uses,as well as surrounding neighbors. This will create an immediate impact due to the effective date of HB 1220. 5. The City of Spokane Valley is in the process of reviewing amendments to the Comprehensive Plan,particularly CPA-2021-0004, which amends the Comprehensive Plan to add goals,policies, and strategies addressing homelessness. CPA-2021-0004, once adopted, will guide adoption of permanent regulations related to homelessness, including regulations for transitional, permanent supportive,and emergency housing and shelters. 6. On June 1, 2021, pursuant to Resolution No. 21-001, the City Council adopted the Housing Action Plan which identified housing needs and strategies based on income level. The City identified a need of 6,660 new dwelling units by 2037 and that 2,900 new units are needed for those at or below 100%of AMI_ The Housing Action Plan identifies strategies to implement to address needed housing. New affordable housing will assist those seeking to leave homelessness, as well as to prevent others from entering homelessness. This will further impact the need for transitional, permanent supportive,and emergency housing and shelters. 7. In 2021, the City began keeping data on the number of unhoused individuals within the City. This data is currently being collected based on SNAP outreach team interactions, Spokane Valley Police interactions,and the City's Homeless and Housing Coordinator's interactions with unhoused individuals. Based on the data collected to date, the City estimates that approximately 100-120 individuals are unhoused within the City each month. 8. City staff have reviewed City zoning regulations, the State Building Code, the International Property Maintenance Code, and analysis by homelessness experts to develop temporary occupancy, spacing, and intensity regulations to minimize negative impacts and the potential for conflicts between the required transitional, permanent supportive, and emergency housing, and emergency shelters,and other surrounding existing uses. 9. Based on the data collected, the City has determined that spacing of one mile between the transitional, permanent supportive, and emergency housing and shelters will fit the geography of the City, limit negative impacts that can occur from clustering uses too close together and allow sufficient number of uses within the City to meet estimated needs. Based on the data collected,the City has determined that limiting facilities to a maximum of 20 individuals served will benefit the public health by promoting an increase in exits from homelessness,ensuring a housing model that easily integrates a trauma informed approach to case management, limiting staff burnout, encouraging more individuals to seek housing,minimizing the negative impacts within the facilities and on the surrounding neighborhoods, and preventing the"warehousing"of individuals. 10. Pursuant to Article 11, Section 11 of the Washington Constitution, the City is authorized to "make and enforce within its limits all such local police, sanitary and other regulations as are not in conflict with general laws," which includes the adoption of regulations governing land uses within the City. 11. RCW 35A.63.220 provides that"A legislative body that adopts a moratorium or interim zoning ordinance without holding a public hearing on the proposed moratorium or interim zoning ordinance, shall hold a public hearing on the adopted moratorium or interim zoning ordinance within at least sixty days of its adoption, whether or not the legislative body received a recommendation on the matter from the planning agency. If the legislative body does not adopt findings of fact justifying its action before this hearing, then the legislative body shall do so Ordinance 21-013 Page 3 of 5 Draft immediately after this public hearing. A moratorium or interim zoning ordinance adopted under this section may be effective for not longer than six months,but may be effective for up to one year if a work plan is developed for related studies providing for such a longer period. A moratorium of[or]interim zoning ordinance may be renewed for one or more six-month periods if a subsequent public hearing is held and findings of fact are made prior to each renewal." RCW 36.70A.390 provides substantially similar language and authority for agencies planning under the GMA, including the City,to adopt interim zoning regulations.; and 12. Interim regulations enacted under RCW 35A.63.220 and/or RCW 36.70A.390 are a method by which local governments may immediately provide for reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity regulations for the housing and shelters mandated by HB 1220 while the City considers Comprehensive Plan amendments to add goals, policies, and strategies addressing homelessness that will enable the development of permanent regulations for indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing. 13. RCW 35A.63.220 and RCW 36.70A.390 both authorize the enactment of a moratorium, interim zoning map, interim zoning ordinance, or interim official control prior to holding a public hearing, provided the City conducts a public hearing on the interim zoning regulation within 60 days of the date of adoption of the interim zoning regulation. 14. Pursuant to WAC 197-11-880, the adoption of Ordinance No. 21-009 was exempt from the requirements of a threshold determination under the State Environmental Policy Act. 15. Pursuant to Ordinance No. 21-009,the City Council adopted a work plan to review and adopt permanent final regulations for indoor emergency housing, indoor emergency shelter,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing uses. 16. On August 24,2021,the City Council conducted a properly noticed public hearing. The City Council heard testimony from two interested individuals. City Council has considered all public testimony received. 17. Temporary interim amendments to Title 19 SVMC,sections 19.60.050 and 19.65.035 SVMC, and SVMC Appendix A, for indoor emergency housing, indoor emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing uses will protect public health and safety by allowing such uses with reasonable occupancy, spacing, and intensity of use standards while the Comprehensive Plan amendments are being reviewed and adopted and permanent regulations are being developed. 18. Due to the imminent effective dates of HB 1220 and the urgent need for emergency and transitional housing that is healthy, safe, and well planned,the emergency adoption of Ordinance No.21-009 and the interim regulations therein was necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health, public safety, public property and public peace by permitting indoor emergency shelters, indoor emergency housing,transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing with reasonable occupancy,spacing, and intensity of use standards in the zones required by HB 1220. 19. The adoption of Ordinance No. 21-009 and the adoption of interim regulations for indoor emergency housing, indoor emergency shelters, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing uses is consistent with the goals and policies of the City's Comprehensive Plan. Ordinance 21-013 Page 4 of 5 Draft Section 2. Duration. The interim amendments set forth in Ordinance No.21-009 shall be and remain in effect for a period of 365 days from the effective date of Ordinance No.21-009,unless repealed, extended, or modified by the City Council after subsequent public hearing(s) and entry of appropriate findings of fact,pursuant to RCW 35A.63.220 and RCW 36.70A.390. Section 3. Ratification. Any act consistent with the authority set forth herein and prior to the effective date of this Ordinance is hereby ratified and affirmed. Section 4. Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance shall be held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity or unconstitutionality shall not affect the validity or constitutionality of any other section,sentence,clause,or phrase of this Ordinance. Section 5. Effective Date. This Ordinance shall be in full force and effect five days after publication of this Ordinance or summary thereof in the official newspaper of the City of Spokane Valley as provided by law.

DRAFT EXCERPT 1. PUBLIC HEARING: Interim Development Regulations—Mike Basinger,Arielle Anderson Mayor Wick opened the public hearing at 6:19 p.m. Economic Development Manager Basinger began the slide presentation outlining House Bill (HB) 1220 regarding affordable housing, homelessness, and Emergency Ordinance 21-009 adopting interim regulations to address transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, emergency housing and emergency shelters. He said that HB 1220 requires planning for affordable housing and prevents the City from prohibiting transitional and permanent supportive housing in any zone that permits residential dwellings and hotels; and it prohibits the City from preventing emergency housing and shelters in any zone where hotels are allowed.He said the bill allows cities to adopt regulations on intensity and spacing to protect surrounding properties.He said currently transitional housing is permitted in the Multi-family zone through a conditional use process.Mr.Basinger said that on July 20, 2021, Council adopted interim regulations, valid for one year with an adopted work plan, to protect surrounding properties. He said staff will be coming forward with goals and strategies to serve as the framework for the adopted work plan. He said the new regulations modify the Permitted Use Matrix to include emergency housing,emergency shelter and permanent supportive housing and create a new chapter 19.45, Community Services SVMC. They also provide maximum occupancy limits to limit impacts to surrounding properties. On June 1, 2021, Council adopted the Housing Action Plan that encourages construction of affordable housing accessible to a variety of income levels.He said that as part of the 2021 annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment process, staff will bring homelessness goals and policies to Council for consideration to provide guidance in the development of zoning regulations, including the interim regulations adopted in response to HB 1220. Homeless and Housing Coordinator Anderson continued the presentation,stating that currently the City has 100-120 unsheltered people in our community based on numbers she cross-references using three different tracking databases and she said that given the identified need,we need to allow for transitional and emergency facilities. She said currently the City lacks immediate emergency shelter beds for homeless folks in our jurisdiction.Mr. Basinger said the next steps include adopting findings of fact and implementing the work plan which begins with adopting the Comprehensive Plan amendments. Mark McManus,Spokane Valley,said that homeless issues in Spokane Valley have been taken care of over the years by support of our schools, our parks and he said we do a good job of raising healthy people and that if we researched the 120 homeless in the Valley,most of them are not from the Valley.He then spoke in opposition to the one-mile separation for services. Steven Wareham, Spokane Valley,said some people become homeless because of their poor choices,such as drug and alcohol use and asked if part of the plan is to address substance abuse and help get folks to function in society again. Mr.Basinger said the interim regulations are to help protect our community from facilities locating in any zone within the City as was adopted by HB 1220. Councilmember Woodard said the interim regulations serve as a guide and that later the City may look at having a two mile radius around the facilities. Mr. Basinger said it is important the facilities are located near transportation and services and added that they might not be located in Spokane Valley but rather,may be regional facilities;he said the interim regulations were put in place to protect ourselves while the regulations are developed. Mayor Wick closed the public hearing at 6:36 p.m. Council Meeting Minutes,Formal: 08-24-2021 Page 1 of 1 Approved by Council: Public Hearing on Interim Regulations governing transitional and emergency housing — Ordinance No . 21 -009 Overview Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1220 (HB 122o) Current City regulations Adoption of Ordinance No. 21-oo9 - interim regulations Background on need for transitional and emergency housing Next steps City of Spokane Valley- Office of the City Attorney HB 1220 Adopted by State Legislature in 2021 Requires planning for affordable housing in next Comprehensive Plan Update Preemption City cannot prohibit transitional housing and permanent supportive housing in any zones where residential dwellings and hotels are allowed City cannot prohibit emergency housing and emergency shelters in any zone where hotels are allowed City of Spokane Valley- Office of the City Attorney 12cont . 0 — Allows City to adopt reasonable occupancy, intensity of use, and spacing standards to promote public health and safety Must allow enough transitional or emergency housing to meet current and projected needs Effective July 25, 2021 (Emergency housing and emergency shelter preemption effective September 30, 2021 City of Spokane Valley- Office of the City Attorney 1.1111 i1urreiif i regulations Cty "Transitional housing" Only allowed in Multi-family zone through a conditional use permit process Impact?

The plan provides strategies and implementing actions to encourage the construction of additional affordable housing to minimize and reduce displacement of low-income residents. The inability to afford housing has a direct correlation to increases in homelessness. On August 24, 2021, the City Council reached consensus for staff to bring a motion consideration for authorizing the City Manager to apply for the Homeless Housing Assistance Act (HHAA) grant administered by Spokane County. These funds would be used to support one full time employee for street outreach purposes and provide 50% of the funds needed to support a deputy solely dedicated to homeless outreach. These two positions will enhance the work that the City is currently doing in the management of homelessness within our jurisdictional boundaries. Tonight, staff will request Council authorization for staff to submit the HHAA application to the County by September 10, 2021. The overall funding request is for a total of$180,000 ( $100,000 for one full-time street outreach employee, $80,000 for one .50% police officer). HHAA funds are collected on documents recorded at the Spokane County Auditor's Office for real estate and other legal occurrences within our jurisdiction. These funds are managed and distributed on the City's behalf by Spokane County through Community Services, Housing and Community Development Department. OPTIONS: 1. Authorize the City Manager to submit the HHAA application to Spokane County; or take other appropriate action. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Move to authorize the City Manager or designee to submit the application for the $180,000 HHAA funds, by September 10, 2021. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS: The 2022 General Fund Budget will include a total of$260,000 of expenditures to cover this program which includes a 1.0 FTE Outreach Worker plus related supplies ($100,000) and an additional Police Officer dedicated to the outreach program ($160,000). We anticipate the cost of the program will be largely offset by this $180,000 HHAA Grant. If the grant was not awarded, the 2022 Budget would still include $160,000 to cover the cost of the Police Officer and this would be financed by recurring General Fund revenues. If the Outreach Worker position was only partially financed by a grant award, Staff will return for a follow- up discussion with Council. The City can consider applying for 2023 HHAA funds to continue these services if so desired.

Project/Activity Description (use this space to describe the specific assistance/activity HHAA will fund A robust interdisciplinary approach is the best practice for a City aiming to manage homelessness and its'tangential issues.The City of Spokane Valley(City) has shown over the last six-months that it is only through a consistent and collaborative effort that we, as a community,can begin to address the complexity of homelessness.This request for funds would provide the City with one FTE outreach worker and help support the hiring of a dedicated homeless outreach Deputy.We have found that having a core team that can attend to the diverse needs of our unsheltered community is the best practice.The importance of street outreach and building the trust needed to help support the transition from street living to housing(whether that is emergency shelter,transitional or permanent housing) is key. We have found that by working closely together as a team we can provide more support to those who are unsheltered. Having a dedicated outreach worker and deputy in the Valley will only support and strengthen this united front and provide the support needed for those who are chronically homeless. Both positions will work closely with the Housing and Homeless Coordinator(HHC)to effectuate the City's management of their unsheltered population. Specifically,they will help facilitate the Valley Huddle; ensure accurate and timely data collection; help fill the City's contracted beds through Truth Ministries and Hope House and other shelter options offered in our region. In addition, both positions will help refer and place unsheltered individuals into mental health and substance treatment facilities should the individual wish to access these resources.The outreach worker will also focus on connecting individuals to increasing their income and is discussed in more detail in B.2. For camps that are on sited on private or other publicly owned land, identifying the parcel owner and making contact with them to address the camp, in collaboration with the City will be the first course of action. Ensuring that services are offered prior to any action taken is key to assisting unsheltered individuals in their exit from homelessness. Quickly identifying and engaging unsheltered individuals aligns with one of the five objectives outlined in the Five-Year Plan To End Homelessness.The Printed By:Arielle Anderson on 9/1/2021 4 of 11 NNeighboriy Software City will be able to better support this objective with these positions. A critical part of managing homelessness is getting as close to an accurate count as possible of those that are unsheltered in our City.These funds will assist the City in developing a methodology that accurately and as precisely as possible, identify the number of unsheltered individuals(youth,young adults, single adults,families) in the City. Understanding the scope of any issue, but especially homelessness, is central in being able to identify gaps, current needs and available resources. It will also assist in developing a homeless plan that will help our City leaders determine the best course of action as it concerns how we need to approach and manage homelessness. B.2. Project/Activity Management(Use this space to describe how activity is conducted) Both positions will assist in connecting individuals with services(housing, mental health,substance treatment, etc).The City of Spokane Valley(City)works in tandem with a diverse set of stakeholders in what is called the Valley Huddle (Huddle).The Huddle is comprised of various agencies ranging from outreach providers,state and local agencies to law enforcement.This cross sector approach is an emerging best practice and formalizes the intricacies associated with multiple jurisdictions that are housed within a municipality's boundary.Additionally, having various street outreach teams present also ensures continuity with case management for those who are unsheltered in our City. Each month the huddle members meet formally to discuss hot spots in our community, housing status of those that are unsheltered, and specific individuals that require support beyond traditional outreach case management. In between the formal meetings,there is constant communication among all these stakeholders as it relates to camps and unsheltered families and individuals in our City.As mentioned above, a concrete plan must be implemented for each individual or family that is unsheltered and desires housing.This is called "case conferencing" or a "stability plan". The expectation of the service providers who work in our City providing outreach services, is that the primary goal is housing.The position being requested in this grant,will have the same expectations.The City recognizes that we must lean on the diverseness of resources offered in our region that seek to support the unsheltered population and the Huddle provides such an opportunity. Perhaps one agency is better equipped to provide certain resources than others, it is then requested that they assist in this connection.The Huddle is an opportunity to highlight what each agency brings to the table and how we can collaborate in a way that best serves this vulnerable population. Coordinated Entry Access is also a tool that used by the Housing and Homeless Coordinator(HHC) and those outreach teams that enter data into CMIS.As an outreach worker,without the ability to enter individuals into Coordinated Entry, conduct the assessment and place the appropriate housing referrals,we would need to route unsheltered individuals to downtown Spokane.This is not feasible nor is it practical.Since Singles Homeless Coordinated Entry(SHCE) is decentralized,the HHC along with most of the outreach teams are able to do directly enroll the Valleys' unsheltered population into CMIS and specifically into SHCE.The outreach position requested with HHAA funds would also be trained to do SHCE enrollments/assessments/referrals in CMIS as well. Ensuring that the City of Spokane Valley is empowered to conduct SHCE enrollments is in line with a "no wrong door" approach that our 5-Year Plan highlights.The City is also working closing with the Family Coordinated Entry system to ensure a more streamlined approach for families to access their housing referrals and reduce the need for this demographic to traverse downtown Spokane. Coordinated Entry is not the only pathway to permanent housing and the outreach worker will also rely on various other options in order to house our unsheltered population. Although SOAR, like so many programs, have been shelved due to COVID,we anticipate being able to work closely with Goodwill to help our unsheltered community get referred into this program.Anytime we can fast-track applications for Social Security Income (SSI), it is a positive outcome for our participants. Like housing,there is more than one pathway Printed By:Arielle Anderson on 9/1/2021 5 of 11 NNeighboriy Software available to obtain SSI.We will also connect individuals with DSHS in order to begin the process of receiving ABD (Aged Blind Disabled),which is another pathway in obtaining SSI and provides the participant with direct cash assistance($197 per month).We will provide referrals to the Disability Assistance Program (DAP) which is headed by Rosemary Wear (Wear Law Offices) in Spokane,they work specifically on behalf of unsheltered individuals who have been denied SSI Benefits or who may be applying for the first time. It is also important to note the new Stabilization Facility that will be accessible to Law Enforcement Officers(LEO's).The facility is located in downtown Spokane and will assist those who struggle with mental health and substance use.This type of co-occurring facility will be of immense help for those who are homeless and often times struggle with both mental illness and addiction. Only LEO's can access beds offered here and will be of great help in getting people stabilized so that a baseline can be reached. As noted in B.1 the City relies heavily on businesses, citizens, internal city departments(such as Parks),for referrals.The City is in the midst of establishing a more formalized relationship with our SREC(Spokane Regional Emergency Communications) in order to receive calls that Spokane Valley Police may receive outside of normal business hours regarding camps or individuals that may need assistance with services.This is yet another opportunity to make contact with homeless individuals in our City.The Deputy position would be the primary point of contact for these referrals and ensure that next day follow-up is completed. B.3. Project/Activity Outcomes(Use this space to describe how assistance and intake forms are tracked for privacy, compliance and record keeping) The HHC is responsible for collating the different data collection currently taking place by the various street outreach workers,SVP and the HHC's own spreadsheet. If we are awarded these funds, a more functional process will be implemented.The HHC has access to the U-CAMP database currently used by the SVP and the outreach worker will maintain their own detailed spreadsheet(with the assistance of the HHC) of individuals they are making contact with and the status of their housing goals. We do request that CMIS, along with Neighborly, is utilized in order to adequately capture the number of unsheltered individuals in our City.The HHC will work with CMIS(HMIS)to create an Outreach Project that both the outreach worker and HHC can use to enroll individuals that have been identified as homeless in our community. B.4. Project Alternatives if not fully funded: The City will continue to rely on service providers for their assistance in reaching unsheltered individuals through outreach and the HHC will also continue to deploy in the field and connect individuals to resources and engage in assertive case management where time allows. It is important to point out, however,that continuation of our status quo outreach efforts through the HHC will not be nearly as robust as it would be the addition of the dedicated outreach worker we are requesting.The Deputy has already been approved and would not be impacted if not funded at the 50% funding request.

Budget Narrative/Funding Case Id: 25095 Sources Name: City of Spokane Valley Homeless Outreach - Address: *No Address Assigned Last modified by aanderson@spokanevalley.org on 9/1/2021 1:59 PM C. Budget Narrative/Funding Sources Provide the basis for the HHAA portion of the budget.The reasoning(or method)for allocation and division of costs among multiple funding sources should also be discussed. PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR THE HHAA PORTION OF THE BUDGET.THE REASONING (OR METHOD) FOR ALLOCATION AND DIVISION OF COSTS AMONG MULTIPLE FUNDING SOURCES SHOULD ALSO BE DISCUSSED. C.1. Personnel Costs: (list according to%of FTE positions and job duties) 1. 1.0 FTE: Outreach Worker. Connect with the unsheltered individuals in the City and quickly connect them to services,whether that is emergency shelter, coordinated entry, mental health and/or substance treatment programs; help with document gathering(Photo ID,Social Security Card, Disability verification)which will facilitate their exit from homelessness. Connect them to other community resources when needed/appropriate (SOAR, FCS,food, clothing, etc). Receive and respond to referrals from various entities such as SVPD,SVFD,Washington State Agencies, local businesses, citizens and internal city staff.Where general welfare checks will be necessary, especially with lack of bed availability and the impacts of COVID-19 on our shelter system,this is not the overarching goal of street outreach. Rather,the primary goal is to quickly move people off the streets and into housing.Without a concrete plan in place that recognizes this outcome, our efforts are in vein and run contrary to the purpose of street outreach. 2. .5 FTE: Deputy.Will work in tandem with the Outreach worker and City Staff(Housing and Homeless Coordinator) to connect with unsheltered individuals in our City and link them to services when requested by those experiencing homelessness.They too will be responsible for responding to requests from the same various entities that are mentioned in the outreach position description.They will also aid the Housing and Homeless Coordinator when enforcement of Unauthorized Camps pursuant to SVMC 7.50 is required.Where the City does not anticipate the need to issue citations for unauthorized camping, it is certainly a tool available to the City, especially for individuals that do not wish to engage in services and cannot adhere to basic public health and safety requests. In the same vein, Abandoned Camp Notices are also posted and requires a law enforcement presence as it is through the City's general police power that we are able to abate camps found on City owned and managed land.The Deputy will assist the City in pushing out information to their peers(via Roll Call, presentations,various other methods of communications) as to any changes in the law(Federal,State, Local) as it relates to homelessness. C.2.Operating Costs: See attached budget. C.3. Professional Services: Deputy: $80,000. See C.4. C.4. Basis of Allocation: Because the City contracts with the County for Deputies,we pay a flat fee per officer which is$160,000.The$80,000 request in this grant reflects 1/2 of the cost associated with 1 FTE. Printed By:Arielle Anderson on 9/1/2021 7 of 11 NNeighboriy Software C.5.Other sources of funding for this project/activity: Funding Source Loan or Grant Funding Funding Status Date Funding Restrictions Amount Available Total $0.00 C.6. Discuss the effect on the project/activity if other"uncommitted"funds are not received: Should the City's request for full funding not be granted, a Deputy fully dedicated to assisting the Housing and Homeless Coordinator will still be funded by City Council approval on August 24, 2021.The outreach worker however will not and the City will continue to rely on the limited resources available in our region and through existing service providers that have street outreach projects.This will severely limit the on the ground assistance that our unsheltered residents are in dire need of and the level of high customer service that the City is dedicated to providing to our businesses and community at large.

Additional Case Id: 25095 Name: City of Spokane Valley Homeless Outreach - Information/Prioritization Address: *No Address Assigned Last modified by aanderson@spokanevalley.org on 9/1/2021 2:02 PM D.Additional Information/Prioritization Please provide the following information. D.1.Additional Information: The City of Spokane Valley believes that the requested funding that will support this innovative approach to homeless outreach can be a model used by other jurisdictions in the future.A deliberate program that pairs street outreach workers with law enforcement helps dispel the dominant narrative that there's no place for law enforcement in the realm of homeless services.This simply is not the case and has not been the experience by City staff over the last six- months.This is only the beginning of how the City envisions incorporating a formal, multidisciplinary approach to the management of homelessness within our jurisdiction.This funding request and the Huddle are the foundations for this vision. Access to affordable housing for those at or below 50%AMI and who are chronically homeless(which means they come with a variety of barriers that typically landlords will not negotiate on), is extremely limited in our region right now. Our rental availability hovers below 1%and this can be whittled down even more for those who present with no to low income.The City points this out only to highlight the natural market forces that finding permanent housing will present for the population served under this grant. We anticipate serving at least 500 individuals over the course of a 12-month period.The City does not feel comfortable mirroring the street outreach outcome measurements captured in the Five-Year Strategic Plan to End Homelessness (See page 45 for the Outcome Measurement Table).This is in large part due to the CoC passing the Plan pre-COVID and not during one of the worst housing crisis that Spokane County has seen. Likewise,given COVID-19 and the impact it is having on shelter availability in our region, our ability to connect homeless individuals to shelter may be thwarted due to lockdowns when an outbreak occurs.Therefore,we propose the following outcome measurements: 1. How many City of Spokane Valley Beneficiaries will contacted during the 12-month grant cycle: 300 2. Of these 300, how many will be placed in Emergency Shelter: 45 3. Of these 300, how many will be placed in Transitional Housing and/or Permanent Housing: 50 4. Of these 300, how many will access mental health or substance treatment facilities: 10 D.2.

On November 24, 2020, the City Council approved the 2021 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. BACKGROUND: The GMA (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 the SVMC, staff published notice on August 21 and 28, 2020, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2021 cycle through October 30,2020. On November 24, 2020,the City Council approved the 2021 Docket.

The text amendment is City initiated. On May 7, 2021, the City issued a Determination of Non-significance (DNS) for the proposed comprehensive plan amendments pursuant to Title 21, Environmental Controls of the Spokane Valley Municipal Code. Comments on the determination have been incorporated into the staff reports where appropriate and no appeal of the DNS was received. The Notice of Public Hearing was published on June 11 and 18, 2021. The site-specific map amendments were posted on site and a notice was mailed to residents within a 400-foot radius of the subject property. Additional notice beyond the minimum legally required notice included a direct email to the Media,Comp Plan Updates, City News, and City Planning distribution lists. Prior to the public hearing,the City created a rotating banner on the City's homepage and published social media posts on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedln that linked to a story in the "News"page of the City website about the public hearing. On June 24, 2021, the Planning Commission held a study session. A public hearing on the proposed amendments was held July 8,2021.

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 20 and 28, 2020, advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 30,2020. 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 24,2020,the City Council approved the 2021 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket.The Docket includes four proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: three 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-2021-0001. All findings in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA- 2021-0001. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(10(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 Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed-Use(CMU) bears 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.-The subject property is within 200 feet of Sprague Avenue and is adjacent to CMU properties fronting Sprague Avenue.CMU properties are located to the west, east,and south.Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and density on the sites in an area supported by 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. 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 14 goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of the multifamily development on the site. There are no transportation improvements planned adjacent to the site within the planning horizon of 2037.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 is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment I •Planning Cammissian Findings and Recommendation CPA-242E-E 10# Page I of 3 b. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Changing the designation from MFR to CMU on the existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on parcels with existing infrastructure. The Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policy that support the proposed change: L U--GI Maintain and enhance the character and quality of lie in Spokane Valley hf-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels_ H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. H-PS Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within //2 mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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 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 when future development occurs. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The 0.68 acre site is currently developed with a multifamily development. The adjacent use to the north is an apartment complex,to the east, south,and west is a commercial retail establishment. The CMU land use designation surrounds the amendment site to the east,south and west. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations. 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: Skipworth Road is a local Access street.There are no planned transportation projects in the area. Balfour Park approximately %mile to the west of the project site is a neighborhood park and is planned to expand to a community park within the planning horizon.A project on the site would be considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. Sewer is available to the site and the site is within Modern Electric Water Company's service area. Future development will be required to ensure other community facilities are adequate at the time of development. There is minimal impact on schools. 1 I. 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 will support increased housing opportunities. The change benefits the neighborhood,City,and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: Anachment I -Planning Commission Findings and Recommendaiion CPA.2O2I-U1101 Page 2 of 3 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-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. H-PS Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within %mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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 0.68 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 would allow for increased options for development including an increase in allowed density on a property with an existing multifamily development. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and 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: The proposed change would have little impact on projected population density. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. The amendment will have 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-2021-0001. The proposed 2021 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.

The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2()2I-t H12 Page I a13 6. The proposed amendment will address a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to NOS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses that are currently allowed in CMU reducing the potential effects on 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 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 at the time of future development. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses. Balfour Park is an existing park facility and the area of the proposed amendment is informally used as open space for nearby residents. Future development of the park space will also provide an amenity and place to gather for residents. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation, parks,recreation,and schools: Sewer and water are available to the site. The nearest formal park is Balfour Park immediately to the east.The proposal will increase park land and future development will enhance the park system helping maintain the adopted LOS. The existing and forecast LOS for this area of Sprague Avenue is D which is within the adopted LOS.A non-motorized capacity improvement project extending the Appleway Trail is also planned and a portion will be constructed in 2021. A street preservation project is planned for 2021 on the surrounding roads of Herald, Main and Balfour. This project will widen the paved shoulder and install sidewalks. I 1. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region: The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing an opportunity to expand Balfour Park as proposed in the Parks Plan.

The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment.The City and region have seen increasing numbers of people being unhoused. While the City actively participates as a member of the Spokane Urban Consortium and the Continuum of Care (CoC), the adopted Comprehensive Plan does not include any policy guidance that would address how,when and where the City could support a shelter or other options for the temporary housing of those experiencing the lack of adequate and permanent shelter. The proposed amendment also supports and recognizes the CoC's mission to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring, Finally, the proposed amendment formalizes the City's participation in the regional efforts to end homelessness. 3. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The UMA does not have a goal that directly addresses homelessness, but does include a broad goal for cities to encourage the availability of affordable housing to all economic segments of the population. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of GMA. Additionally, House Bill (HB) 1220 amends the GMA requiring jurisdictions to support emergency shelters and housing through local planning and development regulations. 4. The proposed amendment is not specific to a localized area of land and as such is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. However,the proposed amendment will provide policy guidance to assist in addressing the growing numbers of those experiencing homelessness. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0004 Page 1o13 6. The intent of the proposed amendment is to fill an existing policy gap in the Comprehensive Plan. The existing plan is silent on both the need for facilities to accommodate those experiencing unsheltered homelessness and how and where these facilities might be located. The proposed amendment will formally recognize the City's participation in regional efforts in the CoC and other local governments.

The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed for any future development. 10, The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The policies will not impact adjacent land uses or neighborhoods.The implementing development regulations will address impacts to adjacent uses.Those development regulations will be evaluated under their own process. I I. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation,and schools: This is not a site-specific proposal.The adequacy of community facilities will be determined at the time of any future development that may result from the adoption of the policies and implementing regulations. 12. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region: The proposed amendment will benefit the City and region by formalizing the City's current commitment and participation in regional efforts to address those experiencing unsheltered homelessness. The proposed amendment also provides policy support to amend development regulations to enable safe,equitable. and efficient provision of supportive housing within the City. 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 is policy oriented. Implementing regulations may modify and allow for supportive housing in appropriately identified areas in the City. 14. The current and projected population density in the area: The proposed amendment will not have an impact on current or projected population. 15. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The proposed amendment will not have impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan.

The amendments were docketed by the City Council and then sent to the Planning Commission for consideration. He explained that the purpose of the meeting is to hold the public hearing and create recommendations for the City Council. Findings of Fact documenting the recommendations will be presented on August 12. 2021 for approval. Public hearing notices were published twice in the newspaper, posted on the properties, and mailed to property owners within 400 feet of the site-specific map amendments. Mr. Bates outlined the four amendments to be heard during the 2021 cycle. CPA-2021-0001: Request to change the.68 acres from Multiple Family Residential(MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is privately initiated for the property located at 22 N. Skipworth Road. It is owned by Homtomi Partners. The request is to rezone the property from Multi-Family residential (MFR) to Corridor Mixed Use(CMU). The property to the east,south, and west are all zoned CMU. The property to the north is zoned MFR. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site,the site would support the redevelopment and infill of the parcel, would support the increase of housing opportunities, is supported by the transportation network, and is compatible with the surrounding uses. Commissioner Miller commented that she was concerned about the fire access for the proposed expansion so she contacted Traci Harvey with Spokane Valley Fire Department and was told that the access is most likely adequate for the proposed change based on a preliminary review. Commissioner Haneke asked if the property is at the max capacity for development based on the current MFR designation. Mr. Bates answered that the MFR designation allows fifteen units and the property currently has fourteen units. Mr. Haneke asked how many units would be allowed if the property was rezoned to CMU. Mr. Bates answered that it would only be restricted by Title 24 of the International Building Code. The item was opened for public comment. Chairman McKinley read the guidelines for public testimony. Lindsay Goodman, Glendale, CA stated that he is a managing partner of the applicant and an architect. He explained that the Skipworth Apartments have been owned by his family for thirty years. He stated that there is a lack of affordable housing in Spokane Valley so they requested the change to the zoning of the property so they can add four additional studio units and carports to the apartment complex. Commissioner Miller asked the applicant if they are committed to keeping the apartment complexes. The applicant stated that they are planning to keep them and are not planning to tear them down. No additional public testimony was offered. CPA-2021-0002: Request to change 5.56 acres from Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) to Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (P/OS). 2 07-08-2021 Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 5 Mr. Bates explained that this amendment is City initiated for the property located across the street from City Hall on Sprague Avenue and the future proposed use is to expand Balfour Park. The City owns this property and requests to rezone the property from Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) to Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (P/OS). The property to the west(Balfour Park) is zoned P/OS. the property to the west and south is CMU, and the property to the north is MFR_ The property is currently vacant. Findings show there are no critical areas on the site,the site would support Park Level of Service, is supported by the transportation network, is compatible with the surrounding uses, and implements the Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Commissioner Beaulac asked if the Appleway Trail will be connected to Balfour Park. Mr. Bates answered that work is being done to extend the trail along Appleway Boulevard from University Road to Farr Road. There will also be a portion of the trail running along Dartmouth Road to Sprague Avenue. The City is currently seeking grant funding to improve the crossing on Dartmouth and Sprague to allow trail users to get to Balfour Park. There was no public comment offered. CPA-202I-0003: Request to change 46 acres from Industrial(I) to Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (P/0S). Mr. Bates stated that this amendment is City initiated for the four parcels located between the Spokane River and Union Pacific railroad east of Flora Road (the property is unaddressed). The City owns the property and requests to rezone the property from Industrial (1) to Parks, Recreation, and Open Space(P/OS). The properties to the north, west, and east are all zoned 1, and the property to the east is zoned P/OS. Findings show that the proposal would support Park Level of Service, it is a newly acquired property purchased specifically for park land, and is compatible with surrounding uses. Commissioner Beaulac asked about access to the property via the Union Pacific railroad crossing and if there are proposed improvements to make the railroad crossings safer for the residents. Mr. Bates answered that there are approximately nine trains per day that utilize that railroad crossing. There has not been any discussion regarding the improvements yet but he explained that he anticipates that will be in the long-term master planning process as the development moves forward. There was one written public comment read into the record from Tom Rees in support of the land use change. There was no additional public comment offered. CPA-2021-0004: Add goals,policies,strategies, and background text related to homelessness. I-lousing and Homeless Coordinator Arielle Anderson explained that the text amendment is City initiated to add goals, policies, and strategies to formalize the City's position on community resources ranging from homeless services to housing instability. She stated that the Comprehensive Plan currently lacks goals,policies and strategies for people who are unsheltered and facing housing instability. The proposed text amendment formalizes the City's commitment to a regional approach to reduce homelessness and address the lack of guidance in the development of zoning regulations regarding site housing and homeless services. The proposed amendments ensure that current publicly funded programs are equally accessible by City residents, formalizes the City action to develop implementing regulations to build out services in the community, supports continued regional cooperation, 3 07-08-2021 Planning Commission Minutes Page 4 of 5 and ensures that all facilities sited in the City have commensurate on-site support. She explained that the amendment is non-site specific and does not detail where services will be located but it will address an identified deficiency within the Comprehensive Plan and support the development of a Homeless Response System specific to the needs of the City. There was no public comment offered. The public hearing was closed at 6:46 p.m. Discussion and recommendation regarding CPA-2021-0001 Commissioner Haneke stated that he is opposed to this amendment because there is no restriction that would keep the owners from tearing down the affordable housing units. Commissioner Miller, Rieckers, Granrath, Beaulac, McKinley, and Robinson stated that they are in support of the amendment because the change is appropriate with the surrounding uses and the proposed plan will add additional housing units that are needed within the City limits.

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 20 and 28,2020,advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 30,2020. 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 24,2020,the City Council approved the 2021 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. The Docket includes four proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: three 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-2021-0001. All findings in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA- 2021-0001. 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 Multifamily Residential (MFR)to Corridor Mixed-Use (CMU)bears 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."The subject property is within 200 feet of Sprague Avenue and is adjacent to CMU properties fronting Sprague Avenue. CMU properties are located to the west, east, and south. Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and density on the sites in an area supported by 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. 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 14 goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations.The request allows opportunity to provide an expansion of the multifamily development on the site. There are no transportation improvements planned adjacent to the site within the planning horizon of 2037.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 is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment 1-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0001 Page 1 of 3 6. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Changing the designation from MFR to CMU on the existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on parcels with existing infrastructure.The Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policy that support the proposed change: LU-Gl Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. H-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. H-P5 Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within '/ mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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 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 when future development occurs. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The 0.68 acre site is currently developed with a multifamily development. The adjacent use to the north is an apartment complex,to the east, south,and west is a commercial retail establishment. The CMU land use designation surrounds the amendment site to the east, south and west. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations.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: Skipworth Road is a Local Access street.There are no planned transportation projects in the area. Balfour Park approximately '/2 mile to the west of the project site is a neighborhood park and is planned to expand to a community park within the planning horizon.A project on the site would be considered infill development, as such,the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. Sewer is available to the site and the site is within Modern Electric Water Company's service area.Future development will be required to ensure other community facilities are adequate at the time of development. There is minimal impact on schools. 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 will support increased housing opportunities. The change benefits the neighborhood, City,and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: Attachment 1-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0001 Page 2 of 3 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-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. H-PS Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within %mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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 0.68 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 would allow for increased options for development including an increase in allowed density on a property with an existing multifamily development. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and 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: The proposed change would have little impact on projected population density. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above.The amendment will have 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-2021-0001. The proposed 2021 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. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2021-0001. Approved this 12`h day of August,2021.

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 20 and 28,2020,advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 30,2020. 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 24,2020,the City Council approved the 2021 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. The Docket includes four proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: three 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-2021-0002. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2021- 0002 Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment to change the designation for 5.5 acres from Corridor Mixed Use(CMU) to Parks and Open Space(P/OS)bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. In 2013,the City purchased two parcels to the west of Balfour Park for the purpose of expanding Balfour Park. The expansion of Balfour Park was indicated in the 2019 Parks and Recreation Master Plan.The expansion was determined to be a high priority in the Plan. The expansion of Balfour Park is also included in the Parks 6-year Capital Improvement Plan. These plans were developed through an extensive community engagement process. Additionally,the expansion is necessary to maintain the adopted Level of Service(LOS)3.25 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents. 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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The proposal is consistent with the GMA goals to enhance recreational opportunities and develop parks and recreation facilities. Additionally, the GMA requires a Parks and Recreation element to be a part of the adopted comprehensive plan.The City's Comprehensive Plan adopts the Parks Plan by reference. The proposed amendment will not have unanticipated impacts on other areas 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. Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0002 Page 1 of 3 6. The proposed amendment will address a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to P/OS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses that are currently allowed in CMU reducing the potential effects on 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 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 at the time of future development. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses.Balfour Park is an existing park facility and the area of the proposed amendment is informally used as open space for nearby residents. Future development of the park space will also provide an amenity and place to gather for residents. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: Sewer and water are available to the site. The nearest formal park is Balfour Park immediately to the east.The proposal will increase park land and future development will enhance the park system helping maintain the adopted LOS. The existing and forecast LOS for this area of Sprague Avenue is D which is within the adopted LOS.A non-motorized capacity improvement project extending the Appleway Trail is also planned and a portion will be constructed in 2021. A street preservation project is planned for 2021 on the surrounding roads of Herald, Main and Balfour. This project will widen the paved shoulder and install sidewalks. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood,City, and region: The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing an opportunity to expand Balfour Park as proposed in the Parks Plan. A master plan for the park expansion is underway.The expansion of Balfour Park will help the City meet its adopted LOS for park land. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The quantity and location of park land is planned for and needed as identified in the Parks Plan.A neighborhood park at this location furthers the goals of the Parks Plan and Comprehensive Plan. The site provides easy access for pedestrians,bicycles, autos, and public transit. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: The proposed change would have minimal impact on projected population density. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: Attachment 2-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0002 Page 2 of 3 The proposal will not have an impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan as the properties have been planned for park space since 2013.The Comprehensive Plan anticipates that the property would be park space. In addition to meeting the goals in the Parks Plan the proposed amendment addresses the following goals,policies, and strategy of the Comprehensive Plan: LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-P18 Enable public open spaces. P-Gl Develop,grow, and maintain a diverse and accessible park, recreation, trail, and open space system that enhances community character. P-P5 Design parks and community facilities to provide easy access for pedestrians, bicycles, autos, and public transit. P-P8 Plan for access to parks, trails, and other open spaces in all neighborhoods. Strategy: Identify opportunities for the expansion of Balfour Park. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2021-0002. The proposed 2021 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.

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-2021-0003. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2021- 0003. Findings required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(1): 2. The proposed amendment to change the land use designation from Industrial(I)to Parks and Open Space (P/OS)bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment. In 2020, the City purchased four parcels between the Spokane River and Union Pacific railroad east of Flora Road for the purpose of expanding the City's park system. The property was identified as a priority acquisition area in the 2019 Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This plan was developed through an extensive community engagement process. Additionally,the park land is necessary to maintain the adopted Level of Service (LOS) 3.25 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents. 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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The proposal is consistent with the GMA goals to enhance recreational opportunities and develop parks and recreation facilities. Additionally, the GMA requires a Parks and Recreation element to be a part of the adopted comprehensive plan.The City's Comprehensive Plan adopts the Parks Plan by reference. The proposed amendment will not have unanticipated impacts on other areas of the Comprehensive Plan. 4. The proposed amendment is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0003 Page 1 of 3 6. The proposed amendment will address a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan. Findings for factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The change to P/OS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses that are currently allowed in the Industrial designation/zoning reducing the potential effects on the physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: The site is impacted by frequently flooded areas and is within the shoreline jurisdiction.The future development of the site will be subject to both the Shoreline Master Program and the City's adopted critical areas ordinance.The development of the site as a park would have less effect on the critical areas and shorelines than an industrial development. 9. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses.The site is isolated between the Union Pacific railroad track and the Spokane River.The proposed park will provide an amenity and place to gather for residents,visitors, and workers. 10. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: Sewer is available to the site and the site is adjacent to Consolidated Irrigation District#19. Flora Road at the site is a local access street and turns into a minor arterial north of the site.The park site is expected to undergo an extensive master planning process to design the site. The development intensity of the site is unknown at this time and the impacts on water and sewer are unknown. Adding the property to the City's park's system will help maintain the adopted LOS for parks. Future development will be required to ensure other community facilities are adequate at the time of development. There is no impact on schools. 11. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region: The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing an opportunity to expand the City's park offerings as proposed in the Parks Plan. That plan calls for the property acquisition and development for a park on the north bank of the Spokane River between Sullivan and Barker Roads. The site is expected to be included as part of a trail system from Plante's Ferry Park, providing a safe and scenic mode of transportation along the Spokane River corridor. The expansion of the park system will help the City meet its adopted LOS for park land. 12. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land: The quantity and location of park land is planned for and needed as identified in the Parks Plan.A new community park in this location furthers the goals of the Parks Plan and Comprehensive Plan. 13. The current and projected population density in the area: The proposed change would have minimal impact on projected population density. 14. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The proposal will not have an impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. In addition to meeting the goals in the Parks Plan the proposed amendment addresses the following goals, policies, and strategy of the Comprehensive Plan: Attachment 3-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0003 Page 2 of 3 LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-P18 Enable public open spaces. P-Gl Develop,grow, and maintain a diverse and accessible park, recreation, trail, and open space system that enhances community character. P-P8 Plan for access to parks, trails, and other open spaces in all neighborhood. C. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2021-0003. The proposed 2021 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. D. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2021-0003. Approved this 12th day of August,2021.

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 20 and 28,2020,advising the public of the annual amendment process and that the City would accept applications for the 2020 cycle through October 30,2020. 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 24,2020,the City Council approved the 2021 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Docket. The Docket includes four proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan: three 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-2021-0004. All the findings made in the general Findings and Recommendations are hereby incorporated by reference into these specific findings for CPA-2021- 0004. 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 City and region have seen increasing numbers of people being unhoused.While the City actively participates as a member of the Spokane Urban Consortium and the Continuum of Care (CoC), the adopted Comprehensive Plan does not include any policy guidance that would address how,when and where the City could support a shelter or other options for the temporary housing of those experiencing the lack of adequate and permanent shelter. The proposed amendment also supports and recognizes the CoC's mission to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. Finally, the proposed amendment formalizes the City's participation in the regional efforts to end homelessness. 3. The Growth Management Act (GMA) adopts fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The GMA does not have a goal that directly addresses homelessness, but does include a broad goal for cities to encourage the availability of affordable housing to all economic segments of the population. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of GMA. Additionally, House Bill(HB) 1220 amends the GMA requiring jurisdictions to support emergency shelters and housing through local planning and development regulations. 4. The proposed amendment is not specific to a localized area of land and as such is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control.However,the proposed amendment will provide policy guidance to assist in addressing the growing numbers of those experiencing homelessness. 5. The proposed amendment is not in response to or corrects an obvious mapping error. Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0004 Page 1 of 3 6. The intent of the proposed amendment is to fill an existing policy gap in the Comprehensive Plan. The existing plan is silent on both the need for facilities to accommodate those experiencing unsheltered homelessness and how and where these facilities might be located. The proposed amendment will formally recognize the City's participation in regional efforts in the CoC and other local governments. Additionally, the proposed amendment will provide for the development of regulations for the provision of supportive housing within the City. Findings for Factors required pursuant to SVMC 17.80.140(H)(2): 7. The effect upon the physical environment: The proposed amendment will not have an effect on the physical environment. 8. The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes: The proposed policies will not have a direct effect on open space, streams, rivers, or lakes. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed for any future development. 10. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods: The policies will not impact adjacent land uses or neighborhoods. The implementing development regulations will address impacts to adjacent uses.Those development regulations will be evaluated under their own process. 11. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools: This is not a site-specific proposal.The adequacy of community facilities will be determined at the time of any future development that may result from the adoption of the policies and implementing regulations. 12. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region: The proposed amendment will benefit the City and region by formalizing the City's current commitment and participation in regional efforts to address those experiencing unsheltered homelessness. The proposed amendment also provides policy support to amend development regulations to enable safe,equitable, and efficient provision of supportive housing within the City. 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 is policy oriented. Implementing regulations may modify and allow for supportive housing in appropriately identified areas in the City. 14. The current and projected population density in the area: The proposed amendment will not have an impact on current or projected population. 15. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan: The proposed amendment will not have impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan.Future development that may result from implementing development regulations will be evaluated for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan and level of service standards. A. Conclusions: The Planning Commission finds compliance with SVMC 17.80.140(H)—Comprehensive Plan Amendment Approval Criteria for CPA-2021-0004. The proposed 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendment is consistent Attachment 4-Planning Commission Findings and Recommendation CPA-2021-0004 Page 2 of 3 with the goals and policies of the Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan,and will promote the public health, safety,welfare, and protection of the environment. B. Recommendations: The Spokane Valley Planning Commission recommends the City Council approve the 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendment CPA-2021-0004. Approved this 12th day of August,2021.

The DNS was not appealed. 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) bears 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." The subject property is within 200 feet of Sprague Avenue and is adjacent to CMU properties fronting Sprague Avenue. CMU properties are located to the west, east, and south. Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and density on the sites in an area supported by 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 14 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. There are no transportation improvements planned adjacent to the site within the planning horizon of 2037. 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 proposed amendment is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Page 3 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2021-0001 Analysis: The amendment does not correct a mapping error. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposed amendment adds little capacity to the CMU designation; there is an existing multiple family development on the site. Changing the designation from MFR to CMU on the existing developed parcel provides the opportunity to increase density on parcels with existing infrastructure. While the proposal does not address a direct deficiency, the Comprehensive Plan identifies the following goals and policy that support the proposed change: LU-Gl Maintain and enhance the character and quality of life in Spokane Valley. H-G2 Enable the development of affordable housing for all income levels. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. H-P5 Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within % mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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 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 when future development occurs. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The 0.7 acre site is currently developed with a multiple family development. The adjacent use to the north is an apartment complex, to the east, south, and west is a commercial retail establishment. The CMU land use designation surrounds the amendment site to the east, south and west. The amendment is consistent with the adjacent land use designations. 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: Skipworth Road is a Local Access street. There are no planned transportation projects in the area. Balfour Park approximately V mile to the west of Page 4 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2021-0001 the project site is a neighborhood park and is planned to expand to a community park within the planning horizon. A project on the site would be considered infill development, as such, the expansion of allowed uses and increased densities are supported by the infrastructure that is in place. Sewer is available to the site and the site is within Modern Electric Water Company's service area.Future development will be required to ensure other community facilities are adequate at the time of development. There is minimal impact on schools. (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 will support increased housing opportunities. The change benefits the neighborhood, City, and region by supporting the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goal and policy: 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. H-P5 Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within % mile of a funded high performance transit network. LU-P16 Maximize the density of development along major transit corridors and near transit centers and commercial areas. (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 0.7 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 would allow for increased options for development including allowing an increase in allowed density on a property developed with multiple family development. The proposal is limited to a reasonable area and 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: The proposed change would have little impact on projected population density. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The CMU designation will support the goals and policies identified above. The amendment will have 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 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 has CMU on three sides and MFR on the remaining fourth side. Access is provided by Skipworth Road via Sprague Avenue. Sprague Avenue is a Page 5 of 8 Staff Report CPA-2021-0001 Principal Arterial. Changing the land use designation to CMU increases the flexibility of allowed uses and allows increased density on a site with existing infrastructure.Additionally,the amendment is supported by the following adopted Comprehensive Plan goals and policies: 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. H-G3 Allow convenient access to daily goods and services in Spokane Valley's neighborhoods. H-P5 Enable a variety of housing types at increased densities within % mile of a funded high performance transit network. 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. 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 Central Valley School district provide water, sewer, and fire protection and schools services in this area. The proposed change is expected to have minimal impact on the transportation system. No planned capacity improvement projects are planned within the planning horizon of 2037 and the forecast LOS for Sprague Avenue in this location is A-C. It is expected that sufficient roadway capacity exists 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 July 8,2021 meeting. 2.

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 bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment.In 2013, the City purchased two parcels to the west of Balfour Park for the purpose of expanding Balfour Park. The expansion of Balfour Park was indicated in the 2016 Parks and Recreation and Open Space Master Plan. The expansion was determined to be a high priority in the Plan. The expansion of Balfour Park is also included in the Parks 6-year Capital Improvement Plan. These plans were developed through an extensive community engagement process.Additionally, the expansion is necessary to maintain the adopted Level of Service (LOS)3.25 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents. (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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The proposal is consistent with the GMA goals to enhance recreational opportunities and develop parks and recreation facilities.Additionally, the GMA requires a Parks and Recreation element to be a part of the adopted comprehensive plan. The City's Comprehensive Plan adopts the Parks Plan by reference. The proposed amendment will not have unanticipated impacts on other areas 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 proposed amendment is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or Analysis: The amendment will designate the property P/OS to allow for the future implementation of the Balfour Park master plan. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposed amendment will address a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: Page 3 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0002 (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The change to P/OS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses that are currently allowed in CMU reducing the potential effects on the 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 at the time of future development. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses. Balfour Park is an existing park facility and the area of the proposed amendment is informally used as open space for nearby residents. Future development of the park space will also provide an amenity and place to gather for residents. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis:Sewer and water are available to the site. The nearest formal park is Balfour Park immediately to the east. The proposal will increase park land and future development will enhance the park system helping maintain the adopted LOS. The existing and forecast LOS for this area of Sprague Avenue is D which is within the adopted LOS.A non-motorized capacity improvement project extending the Appleway Trail is also planned and a portion will be constructed in 2021. A street preservation project is planned for 2021 on the surrounding roads of Herald, Main and Balfour. This project will widen the paved shoulder and install sidewalks. The proposed amendment will have no impact on schools. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City,and region; Analysis: The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing an opportunity to expand Balfour Park as proposed in the Parks Plan.A master plan for the park expansion is underway. The expansion of Balfour Park will help the City meet its adopted LOS for park land. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The quantity and location of park land is planned for and needed as identified in the Parks Plan.A neighborhood park at this location furthers the goals of the Parks Plan and Comprehensive Plan. The site has good access to transit, non- motorized access, and vehicles. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: The proposed change would have minimal impact on projected population density. Page 4 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0002 (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposal will not have an impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan as the properties have been planned for park space since 2013. The Comprehensive Plan anticipates that the property would be park space. In addition to meeting the goals in the Parks Plan the proposed amendment addresses the following goals,policies, and strategy of the Comprehensive Plan: LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-P18 Enable public open spaces. P-Gl Develop, grow, and maintain a diverse and accessible park, recreation, trail, and open space system that enhances community character. P-P5 Design parks and community facilities to provide easy access for pedestrians, bicycles, autos, and public transit. P-P8 Plan for access to parks, trails, and other open spaces in all neighborhoods. Strategy: Identify opportunities for the expansion of Balfour Park. 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 City has an adopted Parks and Recreation master plan which is adopted by reference by the Parks and Recreation element of the Comprehensive Plan. The Parks and Recreation plan identifies the expansion of Balfour Park as a recommended project to improve the City's park system. The planned improvments and expansion will contribute to meeting the adopted level of service for parks in the City. b. 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 City has adopted minimum LOS standards for water, sewer, transportation, stormwater, law enforcement, libraries, parks, street cleaning, public transit, fire, and schools. The proposed amendment will have minimal impact on public services and as part of the proposed expansion project, accessibility improvements are planned to support the development of the park. These improvements include sidewalk and stromwater improvements. b. Conclusion(s): The proposed amendment will have adequate urban services at the time of development. Page 5 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0002 D. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS SPECIFIC TO PUBLIC COMMENTS 1. Findings: Staff has received no public comments to date.

The proposed amendment bears a substantial relationship to the public health,safety,welfare,and protection of the environment; The proposed amendment does bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment. In 2013 the City purchased two parcels to the west of Balfour Park for the purpose of expanding Balfour Park. The expansion of Balfour Park was indicated in the 2016 Parks and Recreation and Open Space(PROS)Plan. The expansion was confirmed as a high priority in the 2019 PROS Plan. The expansion of Balfour Park is also included in the 6-year Capital Improvement Plan of the 2019 PROS Plan. These plans were developed using robust community engagement process.Additionally, the expansion is necessary to maintain the adopted Level of Service 3.25 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents. 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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The proposal is consistent with the GMA goals to enhance recreational opportunities and develop parks and recreation facilities.Additionally, the GMA requires a Parks and Recreation element to be a part of the adopted comprehensive plan. The City's Comprehensive Plan adopts the PROS Plan by reference. The proposed amendment reduces the amount of Corridor Mixed Use(CMU)property within the City;however, the property has been owned by the City since 2013 and has been excluded from land capacity analyses. The conversion of the proposed properties will not have unanticipated impacts on other areas of the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment responds to a substantial change in conditions beyond the property owner's control PL-06 V1.0 Page 1 of 5 COMPREHENISVE PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION applicable to the area within which the subject property lies; The proposed amendment is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. b. The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error;or The amendment corrects an obvious mapping error. c. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. While there is a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan, the amendment does not directly add park land to the City's inventory as the property has been planned for the expansion of Balfour Park. However, the amendment will increase the development opportunities of the property for park amenities;in this sense, the amendment does address the deficiency of access to parks in the community. Additional factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: a. The effect upon the physical environment; The change to P/OS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses allowed in the CMU reducing the potential effects on the physical environment. b. 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 at the time of future development. c. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses. Balfour Park is an existing park facility and the area of the proposed amendment is informally used as open space for nearby residents. Future development of the park space will impact surrounding neighborhoods but will also provide an amenity for nearby residents. d. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation, parks, recreation,and schools; Sewer and water are available to the site. The nearest formal park is Balfour Park immediately to the east. The proposal will increase park land and future development will enhance the park system helping maintain the adopted LOS. The existing and forecast LOS for this area of Sprague Avenue is D which is with the adopted LOS. There no vehicle capacity increasing transportation projects in the area;a non-motorized capacity improvement project extending the Appleway Trail is planned for 2028.A street preservation project is planned for 2021 on the surrounding roads of Herald, Main and Balfour; the project will widen paved shoulder, install curb and sidewalks. The proposed amendment will have minimal impact on schools. e. The benefit to the neighborhood,City,and region; The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing opportunity to expand Balfour Park as proposed in the 2019 PROS Plan. That plan call for the expansion of Balfour Park to include mini amphitheater, meandering paths, multi-purpose shelter with restroom,stage,performance seating space, open field/play area, reconfigured parking lot,splash pad, new basketball court, and expansion of existing play area. While primarily a neighborhood park, the expansion will help the City meet its adopted LOS for park land. f. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; The quantity and location of park land is planned for and needed as identified in the adopted PROS Plan.A neighborhood park at this location furthers the goals of the PROS and Comprehensive Plans. The site has good access to transit, non-motorized access, and vehicles. g. The current and projected population density in the area;and PL-06 V1.0 Page 1 of 5 COMPREHENISVE PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION Across the entire city the proposed change would have little impact on population density. While currently designated CMU, the property because it is owned by the City, does not impact the City's ability to accommodate projected population. The proposal will not result in the development of additional housing units or employment opportunities. h. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. The proposal will not have an impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan as the properties have been planned to be park space since 2013. The Comprehensive Plan anticipates that the property would be park space. In addition to meeting the goals in the PROS Plan the proposed amendment addresses the following goals,policies, and strategy of the Comprehensive Plan: LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-P18 Enable public open spaces P-G1 Develop,grow, and maintain a diverse and accessible park, recreation, trail, and open space system that enhances community character. P-P5 Design parks and community facilities to provide easy access for pedestrians, bicycles, autos, and public transit. P-P8 Plan for access to parks, trails, and other open spaces in all neighborhood. Strategy:Identify opportunities for the expansion of Balfour Park.

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.

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 bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment.In 2020, the City purchased four parcels between the Spokane River and Union Pacific railroad east of Flora Road for the purpose of expanding the City's park system. The property was identified as a priority acquisition area in the Parks Plan. This plan was developed through an extensive community engagement process. Additionally, the park land is necessary to maintain the adopted Level of Service 3.25 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents. (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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The proposal is consistent with the GMA goals to enhance recreational opportunities and develop parks and recreation facilities.Additionally, the GMA requires a Parks and Recreation element to be a part of the adopted comprehensive plan. The City's Comprehensive Plan adopts the Parks Plan by reference. The proposed amendment will not have unanticipated impacts on other areas 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 proposed amendment is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. (4) The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error;or Analysis: The amendment will designate the property P/OS to allow for the future implementation Parks Plan. (5) The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposed amendment will address a documented deficiency of park land in the Comprehensive Plan. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: Page 3 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0003 (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The change to P/OS will not impact the physical environment. The change will result in less intensive uses that are currently allowed in the Industrial designation/zoning reducing the potential effects on the physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers, and lakes; Analysis: The site is impacted by frequently flooded areas and is within the shoreline jurisdiction. The future development of the site will be subject to both the Shoreline Master Program and the City's adopted critical areas ordinance. The development of the site as a park would have less effect on the critical areas and shorelines than an industrial development. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The proposed amendment is compatible with the surrounding land uses. The site is isolated between the Union Pacific railroad track and the Spokane River. The proposed park will provide an amenity and place to gather for residents, visitors, and workers. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis: Sewer is available to the site and the site is adjacent to Consolidated Irrigation District#19. Flora Road at the site is a local access street and turns into a minor arterial just to the north of the site. The park site is expected to undergo an extensive master planning process to design the site. The development intensity of the site is unknown at this time and the impacts on water and sewer are unknown.Adding the property to the City's park's system will help maintain the adopted level of service for parks. Future development will be required to ensure other community facilities are adequate at the time of development. There is no impact on schools. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; Analysis: The proposed amendment will provide benefits to the neighborhood and City by providing an opportunity to expand the City's park offerings as proposed in the Parks Plan. That plan calls for the property acquisition and development for a park on the north bank of the Spokane River between Sullivan and Barker Roads. The site is expected to be included as part of a trail system from Plante's Ferry Park,providing a safe and scenic mode of transportation along the Spokane River Corridor. The expansion of the park system will help the City meet its adopted LOS for park land. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The quantity and location of park land is planned for and needed as identified in the Parks Plan. A new community park in this location furthers the goals of the Parks Plan and Comprehensive Plan. (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: The proposed change would have little impact on projected population density. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Page 4 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0003 Analysis: The proposal will not have an impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. The properties have been planned for park space since 2019. In addition to meeting the goals in the Parks Plan the proposed amendment addresses the following goals,policies, and strategy of the Comprehensive Plan: LU-G2 Provide for land uses that are essential to Spokane Valley residents, employees, and visitors. LU-P18 Enable public open spaces. P-Gl Develop, grow, and maintain a diverse and accessible park, recreation, trail, and open space system that enhances community character. P-P8 Plan for access to parks, trails, and other open spaces in all neighborhood. Conclusion(s): For the reasons outlined above the proposed amendment is consistent with SVMC 17.80.140(H). 2.

Findings: The amendment is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.The City has an adopted Parks Plan which is adopted by reference in the Parks and Recreation element of the Comprehensive Plan. The Parks Plan identifies the property as a potential acquisition area for a new park.The acquisition and future development will contribute to meeting the adopted level of service for parks in the City. b. Conclusion(s) The proposed amendment is consistent with the City's adopted Comprehensive Plan 3. Adequate Public Facilities a. Findings: The 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 City has adopted minimum LOS standards for water, sewer, transportation, stormwater, law enforcement, libraries, parks, street cleaning, public transit, fire, and schools. The proposed amendment is likely to have minimal impact on the demand on public facilities. The demand for public facilities was analyzed in Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Comprehensive Plan for industrial development. The impact on facilities are not expected to be more than those analyzed for industrial development. Additionally, impacts on transportation and public facilities are implemented at the project level through concurrency. 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.

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.

Project Number: CPA-2021-0004 Application Description: Amend Chapter 2 Goals and Policies to add goals,policies and strategies regarding homeless services.Amend Chapter 6 Housing to add background text regarding homeless services. Location: Citywide Applicant: City of Spokane Valley, 10210 E Sprague, Spokane Valley,WA 99206 Date of Application: October 30,2020 Staff Contact: Arielle Anderson,Housing and Homeless Services Coordinator, 10210 E Sprague Avenue, Spokane Valley,WA 99206 APPROVAL CRITERIA: Spokane Valley Comprehensive Plan, Title 17 Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) General Provisions, Title 19 SVMC Zoning Regulations, and Title 21 SVMC Environmental Controls. ATTACHMENTS: Exhibit 1: Proposed Amendment Exhibit 5: Notice of Public Hearing Exhibit 2: Application Exhibit 6 Community Survey Report Exhibit 3: SEPA Checklist Exhibit 7: Agency Comments Exhibit 4: Environmental Determination Exhibit 8: Public Comments A. BACKGROUND INFORMATION In 2020,the City identified the need to include goals,policies and strategies related to homelessness. While the existing Comprehensive Plan has goals related to affordable housing,it does not contain goals, policies,or strategies for the development of zoning or development regulations for the siting or provision of homeless services.More recently the Housing Action Plan also identified the need to update the Comprehensive Plan to address the homeless services. Homelessness is a growing challenge in the City.According to the most recent point-in-time counts there are 1,310 people experiencing homelessness in Spokane County.These individuals represent 1,070 households including over 300 families with children.The number of individuals experiencing homelessness has increased by over 21 percent since 2013. In addition to those experiencing homelessness,many households in our City also face housing instability and are at risk of becoming homeless. Page 1 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0004 The number of unsheltered households in the City has increased throughout the years. Currently, there are no homeless service facilities,day drop-in centers,or emergency shelters offered within the City limits, and the majority of those services are located in the City of Spokane. The proposed amendment provides policy guidance and strategies for the City that will help identify gaps in community resources, and encourage regional participation to address homelessness and housing instability. The amendment also provides clear steps to ensure that City households have equal access to services. Ensuring that these services are available to provide the opportunity to connect our residents with the support system they need to maintain housing to reduce the number of homeless in our community. In April 2021,the City developed a Community Engagement Plan(CEP)on the homeless services amendment.The CEP was designed to engage stakeholders and community members and to solicit their input to gather feedback and increase awareness of housing needs and opportunities in the City. The key goals of the CEP were to integrate city staff in the amendment process,foster dialog with stakeholders and community residents,allow the community to be heard,informed, and involved,and build trust between the city and the community throughout the engagement process. Due to limitation on in-person meetings,the CEP relied on virtual tools and online meetings. The CEP included formal stakeholder interviews as well as a community wide survey. The survey was sent to the City's following distribution lists: Business Development News, City News (general),City Planning Commission Agenda,Comprehensive Plan Updates,Housing Action Plan,Parks and Recreation News, and Shoreline Master Program for a total of 1,882 unique email addresses.There was a total of 318 responses over the course of seven-days. Overall,the community is supportive of introducing a number of different services for the benefit of those that are both unsheltered and unstably housed. There were strong responses on where these resources should be located and the scope of the number of individuals served. There was consistency among respondents that siting community resources in close proximity to public transportation will be key during the planning process. SUMMARY AND IMPLICATIONS OF PROPOSED AMENDMENT: These amendments will formalize the City's commitment and participation in regional efforts to address homelessness and housing instability. The amendment provides policy support that enable safe,equitable, and efficient provision of services throughout the City. APPLICATION PROCESSING: Chapter 17.80 Permit Processing Procedures in the SVMC. The following summarizes key application procedures for the proposal. Application Submitted: October 30,2020 SEPA Determination of Non-Significance Issue date May 7,2021 End of Appeal Period for DNS: May 14,2021 Date of Published Notice of Public Hearing: June 11 and 18,2021 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 May 7, 2021. The determination was made after review of a completed environmental checklist, the application, Page 2 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0004 Titles 19, 21, and 22 of the SVMC, a site assessment, public and agency comments, the Comprehensive Plan and Environmental Impact Statement associated with the Comprehensive Plan. The DNS was not appealed. 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 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 bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment. The City and region have seen increasing numbers of people being unhoused. While the City actively participates as a member of the Spokane Urban Consortium and the Continuum of Care(CoC), the adopted Comprehensive Plan does not include any policy guidance that would address how, when and where the City could support a shelter or other options for the temporary housing of those experiencing the lack of adequate and permanent shelter. The proposed amendment also supports and recognizes the CoC's mission to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring. Finally, the proposed amendment formalizes the City's participation in the regional efforts to end homelessness. (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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The GMA does not have a goal that directly addresses homelessness, but does include a broad goal for cities to encourage the availability of affordable housing to all economic segments of the population. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of GMA.Additionally,House Bill(HB)1220 amends the GMA to require jurisdictions support emergency shelters and housing through local planning and development regulations. (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 proposed amendment is not specific to a localized area of land and as such is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. However, the proposed amendment will provide policy guidance to assist in addressing the growing numbers of those experiencing homelessness. Page 3 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0004 (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 intent of the proposed amendment is to fill an existing policy gap in the Comprehensive Plan. The existing plan is silent on both the need for facilities to accommodate those experiencing unsheltered homelessness and how and where these facilities might be located. The proposed amendment will formally recognize the City's participation in regional efforts in the CoC and other local governments.Additionally, the proposed amendment will provide for the development of regulations for the provision of supportive housing within the City. ii. The City must also consider the following factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: (1) The effect upon the physical environment; Analysis: The proposed amendment will not have an effect on the physical environment. (2) The effect on open space, streams,rivers,and lakes; Analysis: The proposed policies will not have a direct effect on open space, streams, rivers, or lakes. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed for any future development. (3) The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; Analysis: The policies will not impact adjacent land uses or neighborhoods. The implementing development regulations will address impacts to adjacent uses. Those development regulations will be evaluated under their own process. (4) The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities,roads,public transportation,parks,recreation, and schools; Analysis: This is a non-site specific proposal. The adequacy of community facilities will be determined at the time of any future development that may result from the adoption of the policies and implementing regulations. (5) The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; Analysis: The proposed amendment will benefit the City and region by formalizing the City's current commitment and participation in regional efforts to address those experiencing unsheltered homelessness. The proposed amendment also provides policy support to amend development regulations to enable safe, equitable, and efficient provision of supportive housing within the City. (6) The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; Analysis: The proposed amendment is policy oriented. Implementing regulations may modify and allow for supportive housing in appropriately identified areas in the City. Page 4 of 7 Staff Report CPA-2021-0004 (7) The current and projected population density in the area; and Analysis: The proposed amendment will not have an impact on current or projected population. (8) The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Analysis: The proposed amendment will not have impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Future development that may result from implementing development regulations will be evaluated for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan and level-of-service standards. 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 proposed amendment seeks to fill an existing policy gap in the Comprehensive Plan. The existing plan does not identify the need for facilities or services to accommodate those that are homeless or facing housing instability. b. 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 City has adopted minimum Levels of Service (LOS) standards for water, sewer,transportation, stormwater,law enforcement,libraries,parks, street cleaning, public transit, fire, and schools. The proposed amendment does not directly increase demands on public facilities. Future site-specific development that may result from implementation measures will be addressed at the time of development. 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 8,2021 meeting. 2. Conclusion(s): The Notice of Public Hearing (NOPH) was published on June 11 and 18, 2021 in the Spokane Valley News Herald.

WHY THE HOUSING ELEMENT IS IMPORTANT • Housing is an important component of the economic infrastructure of a community because it ensures a balance of land uses and complements employ- ment-generating uses by providing opportunities for workers to live near their jobs. The availability of housing types that match Spokane Valley's job profile and enhance the livability of local neighborhoods is therefore an important competitive advantage for economic development. The Housing Element leverages key data to inform the development of goals and policies, which will set a course toward the City's vision of quality, affordable housing for all Spokane Valley residents. PLANNING CONTEXT The Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) stipulates 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.Countywide Planning Policies(CWPP)for Spokane County for housing are consistent with these requirements and place additional emphasis on promoting accessibility for residents to commercial and transportation REFERENCES KEY centers. In previous planning efforts, the City acknowledged the abundance of single • Refers to other section jx xx in plan family housing, and focused on expanding housing options for residents while increasing the availability of multifamily housing units centrally located to Refers to other Spokane employment centers and commercial amenities. Additionally, Spokane Valley SV Valley plans and official aimed to increase the prevalence of mixed-use retail and residential throughout documents the City's neighborhoods with the overarching goal of limiting auto-dependen- j cy and improving housing affordability. jRefers to other Onon-Spokane Valley The Housing Element works in tandem with other elements in this references for further Comprehensive Plan. It includes a data-rich narrative to document existing jreading conditions that affect housing availability, cost, and quality. These include demographic trends and market conditions. The findings indicate challenges and opportunities for housing in Spokane Valley, and ultimately anchor the goals and policies presented in Chapter 2. 6-97 return to Table of Contents Current Conditions Spokane Valley has a similar demographic composition as Spokane County overall. The population in the City will continue to grow in size, and it is anticipated that the population will continue to"age"—meaning that the share of the population 65 and older will increase disproportionately compared to other age segments. Both the average household size and the proportion of households with children are decreasing in Spokane Valley. Additionally, the apartment vacancy rate in the City and County are comparably low, and lease rates for apartments are steadily increasing. Taken together, these recent trends indicate that demand for single family dwellings is decreasing in relation to demand for multifamily units.The key data from this section are summarized below. • The majority (60%) of housing units in Spokane Valley are single family dwellings built prior to 2000(Figure 41). • Spokane Valley's housing growth has been modest, but steady since it incorporated in 2003, growing at a rate of about 1% per year. About 6,000 new residences were added to Spokane Valley's total housing stock between 2003 and 2015(Figure 41). • Spokane Valley's population is aging. Between 2005 and 2014, the proportion of the population over the age of 75 increased by 2%,from 5% to 7%.The City's aging trend parallels that of the County—the share of the population 65 or older totaled 15% in 2014 in both Spokane Valley and Spokane County(Figure 35). • Compared to Spokane County as a whole,the number of households with children is decreasing more rapidly in Spokane Valley. The percentage of the City's households with children decreased by 5.6%—from 35.6% to 30%—between 2005 and 2014, while the proportion of households with children in the County dropped by 1.5%during the same time period (Figure 35). • The median household income in Spokane Valley was over $2,000 less than the average countywide annual earnings. Additionally, almost a third of Spokane Valley's residents earned between $25,000 and $50,000 annually in 2014(Figure 38). 6-98 • Residents in both Spokane Valley and Spokane County are cost-burdened, meaning that their housing costs account for more than one-third of their income. Renters and homeowners are notably cost-burdened, however,there is a much larger proportion of cost-burdened renters than homeowners,51%of renters and 26%of homeowners in both locales spend a third or more of their monthly budget on rent or mortgage payments (Figure 39). • The vacancy rate for apartments in the City is low and rents are increasing. According to an apartment market survey executed by the Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies at the University of Washington, the average rent for apartments of any size in Spokane Valley was$827 per month. Furthermore, the average rent for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment was$812 per month.The overall vacancy rate for apartments in Spokane Valley was notably low-0.8%(Studies,2016; Figure 43). • The City has historically allowed, and continues to allow, other types of housing to meet community needs, in compliance with state law. These housing options include government-assisted housing, manufactured housing,group homes,and foster care. DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS The demographic makeup of an area informs the market demand for housing size, type, location, and mix. For example, cities with large numbers of households with children will have high demand for single family housing near schools. Similarly, housing demand in locations with higher proportions of single,young adult populations will be skewed towards smaller, multifamily units proximate to employment centers.As the population of an area evolves over time, the housing market must also adjust to match the needs of its residents. Increasing Population and Continued Growth The population in Spokane Valley is growing at a slightly slower rate than the countywide population. Spokane Valley experienced almost 11% growth between 2003 and 2014 compared to the County's 13% population increase during the same time period. By 2037, the City is projected to have 14,650 additional residents.Though increasing population is clearly linked to demand for housing,population trends are only briefly summarized in this element,and more detailed data is contained in the Land Use Element. 6-99 return to Table of Contents Cities,counties,and regions can grow through natural increases(i.e.when births outstrip deaths) and by in-migration. Countywide, births and deaths remained stable between 2005 and 2015 (Figure 34). Therefore, recent fluctuations in population are largely attributable to people moving to and from the County. These"non-natural"fluctuations are referred to as net residual migration,and have been the driving force behind population growth and loss within Spokane County since at least 2005. Figure 34. Population Change by Natural Increase and Net Residual Migration,Spokane County,2005-2015 Source:Washington State Office of Financial Management(2015) '500 Population •Net ReMik a!Migration $'500 (Change) 7.500 sWawa!Irxr.easeatirthz.-Dc4th9 6,500 5500 4,500 Iaa 3.500 122 50CF - fi 2 a ZOOG 200. 7 2008 2009 20]10 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 An Aging Population Overall, Spokane Valley's age segmentation closely resembles that of Spokane County.One notable trend in both the City and the County is that the population is aging. The share of the population 65 or older totaled 15% in 2014 in both Spokane Valley and Spokane County (up from 10% and 12%, respectively, in 2005) (Figure 35). This trend is reflected in younger age segments as well, with the residents 19 or younger dropping from 31% (2005)to 26% (2014) in Spokane Valley. The decreased prevalence of children in Spokane Valley brings the City in line with the larger County,where 25%of the population is 19 or younger.The City, therefore,does not have a significantly larger family presence than the County as a whole. These trends suggest decreasing demand for large, detached single family homes and increased demand for the types of housing that are both desirable and affordable to smaller households, including empty-nesters that may be less inclined to maintain larger properties. Nevertheless,the City will still need to provide excellent facilities, such as schools, for families with children. 6-100 Even with increased demand for smaller and attached housing products, new single family homes will continue to be developed throughout the County. However, data suggests that even as all of Spokane County ages, Spokane Valley's population is aging at a particularly fast rate. Multifamily units and smaller, attached single family housing products may therefore be comparatively attractive investments in Spokane Valley for housing developers that are active in the greater Spokane region. This finding is also supported by the fact that while Spokane Valley's average household size has slightly decreased since 2005,the average household size throughout Spokane County has increased (Figure 36). Figure 35.

In 2014, that difference narrowed—there was just over a $2,000 difference in median Figure 36. Average Household Size,Spokane Valley and Spokane household income between Spokane Valley and Spokane County. County,2005-2014 Source:US Census Bureau American Community Median household income has therefore grown at a faster rate in Spokane Survey(2014) Valley than in Spokane County. Despite this trend, median household income AREA 2005 2014 in Spokane Valley is still lower than in Spokane County as a whole by about Spokane Valley 2.47 2.44 $2,200.The share of residents within each income bracket has also remained Spokane County 2.39 2.45 consistent during this time period in Spokane Valley, while in Spokane 6-101 return to Table of Contents County there has been a marked decrease in the percentage of households making less than $25,000 (from 36%to 25%) and a significant increase in the number of households making $50,000 or more (from 38% to 51%) (Figure 37).This may suggest that residents of the County are experiencing increased upward mobility, or that the County has seen an influx of wealthy residents. This change could also be attributed to the City's older population retiring, and subsequently not growing their annual income. In any case, the fact that increases in median household income in Spokane Valley have not lifted a significant number of households into higher income segments indicates that Spokane Valley's housing must remain affordable to a wider range of income levels. One of the goals of the GMA is to provide Washington residents with affordable housing options. According to federal and state guidelines, a household is considered cost burdened when 30% or more of its gross income is spent on housing(including rent or mortgage and utility costs). Figure 37.

In Spokane Valley, however, the share of cost-burdened renters decreased from 54% in 2005 to 51% in 2014 while the percentage of cost-burdened homeowners remained constant. The opposite occurred on the countywide scale—the share of cost-burdened renters increased slightly,from 50%to 51%.The proportion of cost-burdened homeowners countywide also increased by 4%. Given that median household incomes are increasing throughout the County,this indicates that the average home price is increasing in Spokane County at a faster rate than in Spokane Valley. Though renters are disproportionately cost-burdened, data suggest that Spokane Valley and Spokane County residents are increasingly more likely to rent than buy their housing unit. In the City, the share of renter-occupied housing increased from 35% to 40% between 2005 and 2014. This trend is visible countywide (34% to 38%), as well as nationwide (Figure 40). Several demographic and economic factors—not least the Great Recession—have shifted consumer preferences toward renting,particularly in urban areas. 6-103 return to Table of Contents Figure 40. and SpokaneOCounty,2005-and ent�o04cupied Housing,Spokane Valley Continuum of Care Program Source:US Census Bureau American Community Survey(2005 2014) Of • The Continuum of Care• seeks to promote the regCona)I effort Program wards homelessness and 1 / o ensures access gto programs to those ji Program has several components i pytr j which outline how a jurisdiction iro. 60% 6 Occupied 1/ implements their own CoC,but one of Homing the most crtical is t creation of te 7 CoC Board.Our CoC is made up ofha $ / variety of business leaders,homeless roviders,local government ' / service 0 representatives,n and individuals that have experienced homelessness. 3$gi / The CoC sets around 'Renter % 1ked ending homeleossness and ssthe the % driver of our Five-Year Strategic Plan t rersir to Prevent and End Homelessness._ 2005 2014 2005 201 % There are several responsibilities that Spo cart'Valley mane County % the CoC must comply with but one • of the key components of the CoC Homeless ResponseSystem in Spokane County / is i ane its responsibility in identifying a y p 0; Collaborative Applicant.

This is consistent with the aforementioned data illustrating the age of housing units,which reports a limited number of dwellings built after 2000. REAL ESTATE CONSIDERATIONS Though the Great Recession negatively impacted the feasibility of real estate development projects throughout the country,financing for new development is once again available and development activity is again increasing. Macroeconomic conditions will always affect local development trends,and are important since private development will drive any new additions to housing stock in Spokane Valley and the region. Multifamily units, in particular, were difficult to finance in many market areas,and the graph in Figure 42 illustrates this difficulty,as there were no multifamily units constructed in Spokane Valley between the third quarter of 2009 and the second quarter of 2012. Since the third quarter of 2012,however,the multifamily development pipeline has been relatively robust. Market data also show that,though multifamily vacancy rates are more volatile in the City than in the County,rates in both geographies are quite low.Vacancies 6-105 return to Table of Contents Figure 42. Multifamily Housing Units Delivered by Quarter, Spokane Valley,2005-2016 Source:CoStar Group(2016) 'al) nal ■Urits Veliwtred 256 250 250 200 188 VV6 15 1d�1 135 135 aix) 28 27 i 26 26 II spiked to almost 15% in Spokane Valley in 2009, but have since decreased and have remained between 4% and 6% since mid-2010 (Figure 43). Spokane County, as a larger geography, is more insulated from the volatility found in smaller markets; still, vacancies increased during and immediately after the recession, but have since stabilized at about 4%. These rates indicate a tight rental market regionally and potentially suggest unmet demand for multifamily products.Even the aforementioned spikes in vacancy appear to be attributable to concentrated periods of multifamily development, rather than insufficient demand;though vacancy increased by two percentage points in Spokane Valley in early 2015, several hundred units had been delivered in the months prior, and the rapid return to 4% vacancy suggests healthy absorption of the units delivered. 6-106 Figure 43.

Since early 2009, the average rent in Spokane Valley and Spokane County have been generally aligned. As of the first quarter of 2016, the average apartment rent for both areas was approximately$800 per month. Approach to the Housing Element CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES Several challenges and opportunities arise from a careful analysis of these housing data. The following summarize obstacles and impediments to quality, affordable, and diverse housing options, as well as arising opportunities to improve housing in Spokane Valley,and underpin goal and policy development in the Housing Element. Providing For Cost-Burdened Residents While the proportion of cost-burdened Spokane Valley renters decreased between 2005 and 2014, more than one-third of all residents—owners and renters together—qualified as cost-burdened in 2014. This suggests a substantial need for more affordable housing units in the City, with a focus on affordable rental units. Smaller multifamily units are less expensive than stand-alone single family units, and an increase in their availability could alleviate some of the cost-burden Spokane Valley residents are currently facing. 6-107 return to Table of Contents More than 50% of Spokane Valley households earned less than $50,000 in 2014. For households earning $25,000 per year, rent and mortgage expenses should be less than$694 per month;at$50,000 annually,housing costs must be less than$1,389 per month.According to an apartment market survey executed by the Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies at the University of Washington, the average rent for apartments of any size in Spokane Valley was $827 per month in 2016,though two and three bedroom units likely exceed this cost by a significant margin.Moreover,when affordable housing units are located further from employment centers and daily needs, like grocery stores,pharmacies,gas stations, restaurants, and other retailers, transportation costs for residents increase significantly through car ownership, insurance requirements, and gasoline purchases.These facts point to the need for affordable housing within walking distance of retailers,employers,and transportation hubs. Creating Options For Non-Family Households As the number of households with children decreases,the demand for smaller housing options will likely increase in Spokane Valley and the County overall. Quality higher-density housing products, such as apartments, condominiums, townhouses, tiny homes, or backyard cottages, would be viable opportunities for residents without children and retirees and may offer the added benefit of increasing affordability for workers in retail and services. Accommodating An Aging Population Aging individuals experience a decrease in mobility—many are unable to drive or don't feel comfortable operating a vehicle as their reflexes and eyesight worsen. As a result, aging populations are more reliant upon transportation services and shorter commute times to amenities and health services. Additionally, increasing age often requires homeowners and renters to downsize because of health concerns, physical mobility restrictions, and/or reductions in income (University, 2014). Taken together, the aforementioned forces urge consideration of denser housing opportunities in close proximity to jobs,retail amenities like grocery stores and banks,and public transportation. 6-108 Access to Community Services The City is largely suburban and,in many areas,lack a robust sidewalk network and close proximity to public transportation which is often limited to arterial corridors.The lack of sidewalks and minimal public transit presents a challenge to those with mobility issues,those that are unsheltered,or who lack access to a personal vehicle. The location of facilities that seek to co-locate a variety of community resources needs to be accessible and connected to public transit to ensure equal access. In addition, the City will need to identify the population(s) that a community resource center seeks to serve. Since the Valley is spread out offering a wide variety of community resources will likely have the best outcome for our Community. COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES Responding To Community Preferences The housing stock in Spokane Valley is weighted toward single family units (61%).Low apartment vacancy rates and high rents indicate market demand for more multifamily units. Residents echoed the market status with a community desire for innovative types of multifamily housing,such as cottage housing,tiny homes,and accessory dwelling units. Improving Housing Diversity and Affordability ENCOURAGE THE CREATION OF MIXED-USE DESTINATIONS Regionally, Kendall Yards in Spokane has aroused interest as a relatively new style of development that embraces many of the tenets of a movement called new urbanism. Residents, as well as investors, have indicated interest in this type of development,which could anchor new regional retail,attract overnight visitors,amplify positive publicity,and create new mixed-use housing options. IMPROVE HOUSING AFFORDABILITY Substantial portions of the renter and homeowner population are cost-burdened by rent and mortgage payments. An increase in multifamily housing options would reduce the average rent for these units countywide, improving the livelihood of cost-burdened residents. Furthermore, providing housing options that meet the needs of local employees is critical to ensuring that local companies continue to have access to capable workers. 6-109 return to Table of Contents ENSURE A RANGE OF HOUSING OPTIONS FOR RESIDENTS As the City's population ages and the proportion of households with children continues to decrease, the demand for smaller housing options will increase. During conversations with Spokane Valley residents,the desire for new housing typologies—including cottages and tiny homes—repeatedly arose. From an economic development standpoint, these typologies densify existing single family neighborhoods while enhancing neighborhood character, and therefore provide a captive audience for neighborhood-serving retailers that create new jobs in the community and draw visitors from nearby towns. Neighborhood Character ENHANCE DISTINCTIVE NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER The Spokane Val leycommunityexpressed a strongdesire for more neighborhood amenities, such as non-chain restaurants, boutiques, and local entertainment. These commercial features thrive in walkable, high density residential communities and may best be provided through mixed-use development,where multifamily units can improve the financial feasibility of the development project. BEST PRACTICES Coordinate with Human Services Housing for individuals and families with a need for human services is important. Planning for these housing types in appropriate areas will reduce barriers to access for these services and may improve the quality of life for those individuals and families. Incorporating Density, Improving Walkability Coordinating housing development with planning for commercial uses, transportation improvements, and public space can create vibrant places with high-quality, high-density housing options. Walkable places have been shown to create economic benefits for cities and residents alike, and these walkable destinations may help diversify and improve the City's stock of for-rent multifamily housing. 6-110 Co-Location of Homeless and Homeless Prevention Services The City of Spokane Valley has a strong network of various non-profits, faith-based organizations and school districts that help serve those who are facing housing instability as well as households that are unsheltered. What has historically been missing are locations in the City where access to these services are easily obtainable. Specifically, a high degree of reliance has been on the City of Spokane to physically house these services,which in turn requires City of Spokane Valley residents to travel when resources are needed. The City supports co-location facilities in its jurisdiction within close proximity of public transportation. These facilities would house various providers that seek to serve those experiencing homelessness and housing instability. Additionally,such services should be well connected to existing systems of care within our region to encourage and support ease of referrals and reduction of duplication in services. Supporting Affordable Housing for all Households The provision of Affordable Housing is critical to meet the needs of those households that have special needs or are on fixed incomes.Any build out of Affordable Housing in the City should align with existing programs and systems that seek to serve those that are unsheltered or unstably housed.The City should strive to work with regional providers to streamline and coordinate the distribution of limited resources. 6-111 return to Table of Contents EXHIBIT 2 COMPREHENISVE PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION COMPREHENSIVE PLAN S�,T,of AMENDMENT APPLICATION pokane SVMC 17.80.140 40000 Valley 10210 E Sprague Avenue • Spokane Valley WA 99206 Phone: (509)720-5240 •Fax: (509)720-5075 •permitcenter@,spokanevalley.org Year ANNUAL COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT PROCESS The City of Spokane Valley is accepting applications for map and text amendments to the Comprehensive Plan for the annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment cycle.

Currently there is no policy guidance on homelessness. COMPREHENISVE PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION Proposed Text Amendments to Chapter 2: Goals, Policies and Strategies The proposed amendments below shall be considered preliminary draft text. As a city initiated text amendment, it is expected that the goal and policies presented below are placeholders only and should be expected to change as the amendment flows through the adoption process. Goal H-G4 Strive to reduce and eliminate the number of people experiencing homelessness in Spokane Valley. Policies H-P5 Continue to participate in the Continuum of Care assisting in their mission to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. H-P6 Collaborate with local governments and the Continuum of Care to gather and share quantitative and qualitative data about the region's needs, facilities, and programs related to preventing homelessness. H-P7 Cooperate with local governments and the Continuum of Care on the development of criteria for locating supportive housing services, including but not limited to permanent supportive housing and emergency shelters. H-P8 Develop regulations that provide for the safe, efficient, and equitable provision of supportive housing services within the City. Response to Criteria Below in bold text are the approval criteria, in italic text is the staff 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 bears a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, welfare, and protection of the environment. The City and region have seen increasing numbers of people being unhoused. While the City actively participates as a member of the Spokane Urban Consortium and the Continuum of Care (CoC), the adopted Comprehensive Plan does not include any policy guidance that would address how, when and where the City could support a shelter or other options for the temporary housing of those experiencing the lack of adequate and permanent shelter. The proposed amendment also supports and recognizes the CoC's mission to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. Finally, the proposed amendment formalizes the City's participation in the regional efforts to end homelessness. 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 fourteen goals to guide the development of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. The GMA does not have a goal that directly addresses homelessness, but does include a broad goal for cities to encourage the availability of affordable housing to all economic segments of the population. The proposed amendment is consistent with the requirements of GMA. b. 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 is not specific to a localized area of land and as such is not in response to a change in conditions beyond the property owner's control. However, the proposed amendment will provide policy guidance to assist in addressing the growing numbers of those experiencing homelessness. c. The proposed amendment corrects an obvious mapping error; or COMPREHENISVE PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION The proposed amendment is policy oriented and does not correct a mapping error. d. The proposed amendment addresses an identified deficiency in the Comprehensive Plan. The intent of the proposed amendment is to fill an existing policy gap in the Comprehensive Plan. The existing plan is silent on both the need for facilities to accommodate those experiencing unsheltered homelessness and how and where these facilities might be located. The proposed amendment will formally recognize the City's participation in regional efforts in the Continuum of Care and other local governments. Additionally, the proposed amendment will provide for the development of regulations for the provision of supportive housing within the City. Additional factors prior to approving Comprehensive Plan amendments: a. The effect upon the physical environment; The proposed amendment will not have an effect on the physical environment. b. The effect on open space, streams, rivers, and lakes; The proposed policies will not have a direct effect on open space, streams, rivers, or lakes. The City's critical areas ordinance will ensure that adequate protection of the critical areas and adjacent land use are addressed for any future development that may be permitted in the future. c. The compatibility with and impact on adjacent land uses and surrounding neighborhoods; The policies will not impact adjacent land uses or neighborhoods. The implementing development regulations that will occur later will seek to minimize and impacts to adjacent uses. Those development regulations will be evaluated under their own process. d. The adequacy of and impact on community facilities including utilities, roads, public transportation, parks, recreation, and schools; This is a non-site specific proposal. The adequacy of community facilities will be determined at the time of any future development that may result from the adoption of the policies and implementing regulations. e. The benefit to the neighborhood, City, and region; The proposed amendment will benefit the City and region by formalizing the City's current commitment and participation in regional efforts to address those experiencing unsheltered homelessness. The proposed amendment also provides policy support to amend development regulations to enable safe, equitable, and efficient provision of supportive housing within the City. f. The quantity and location of land planned for the proposed land use type and density and the demand for such land; The proposed amendment is policy oriented. Implementing regulations may modify and allow for supportive housing in appropriately identified areas in the city. g. The current and projected population density in the area; and The proposed amendment will not have an impact on current or projected population. h. The effect upon other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment will not have impact on other aspects of the Comprehensive Plan. Future development that may result from implementing development regulations will be evaluated for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan and level-of-service standards.

The City has historically set aside General Fund surpluses from previous years to fund priority projects such as grade separating key intersections that cross the BNSF railroad tracks, new economic development initiatives, or needed improvements to city parks. Since 2019, the City has been relying on some of these surplus funds to offset deficits in the maintenance portion of the PMP (street lighting, snow plowing, pothole repair, etc.). This has reduced the amount of surplus funds available to apply towards priority community projects. The amount of General Fund surpluses depends on the economy.

GOVERNING LEGISLATION: SVMC 3.30.030; and Spokane Valley Resolution 11-001, and 08-024. PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION TAKEN:Adoption of SVMC 3.30.030 in 2002;amendment of SVMC 3.30.030 in 2015; and adoption of Resolution 08-024 December 30,2008,and amended resolution 11-001 on January 11,2011. BACKGROUND: Pursuant to SVMC 3.30.030,the City Manager is authorized to establish a petty cash account for use by staff for a variety of purposes, including very small purchases, providing change to customers for the limited cash transactions we have, and to pay for day-to-day expenses such as parking while downtown,and other similar small expenses. Although the SVMC authorizes the City Manager to establish and maintain this system to ensure appropriate protocols and safeguards are provided,the Washington State Auditor's Office advised in 2008 that the Budget, Accounting and Reporting System (BARS) identifies that the governing body should approve the internal controls for revolving funds such as petty cash. As such,the City adopted Resolution 08-024 establishing the process and controls relating to the City's petty cash fund and usage.That resolution was amended by Resolution 11-001 to increase the operations cash fund to $200 as it was determined that the operations petty cash fund of$100 was insufficient. Staff recently noted that the language in Resolution 11-001 has become outdated in places,and incorrect in other aspects due to changes in duties or titles of responsible parties. A proposed draft resolution to replace Resolution 11-001 and Resolution 08-024 is attached for Council review and discussion. If approved,this resolution would repeal and replace Resolutions 11-001 and 08-024 in their entirety. Staff recently confirmed with the Auditor's office that this remains the preferred approach. OPTIONS: (1) Advance to a subsequent agenda for motion consideration to approve the proposed resolution; or(2)take other action as appropriate. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Consensus to advance to a subsequent agenda for motion consideration to consider approval of Resolution 21-006. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS:Not applicable.

PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION TAKEN: Council heard an administrative report on the American Rescue Plan Act at the July 13,2021 Council meeting.No action has been taken to date on this topic. BACKGROUND: On March 11, 2021, the President signed the American Rescue Plan Act ("ARPA") into law. ARPA provided for a wide variety of funding for a variety of purposes, including direct assistance to small businesses,for homeless and affordable housing purposes,and to state and local governments. Importantly for the City,ARPA established the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds and allocated$350 billion to these accounts to assist state and local governments in meeting pandemic response needs and rebuilding the economy. The City of Spokane Valley will receive approximately $16 million from the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund("CLFR"). The Department of Treasury will distribute the funds in two tranches: one this summer and a second in the summer of 2022. The City's first tranche of about$8 million was received on July 12,2021. This report is intended to provide a very broad overview of CLFR funds and the allowable uses,as well as an overview of other funds that will be managed by other sources flowing into our community from ARPA. CLFR FUNDS CLFR dollars must be used to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impacts. To determine whether and how an expense will respond to COVID-19,the City must identify a need or negative impact created by the pandemic and identity how the program, service, or other intervention will address the identified need or impact. Eligible expenses must be incurred by the City between March 3, 2021 and December 31, 2024. An expense is considered incurred if it is obligated by December 31, 2024. All obligated funds must be spent by December 31,2026. Within this broad framework,ARPA identifies four primary eligible use categories for CLFR dollars. We have split the first category into two: Page 1 of 6 la.Responding to the public health emergency with respect to COVID-19. Costs related to the public health emergency include mitigation efforts, medical expense, behavioral healthcare, and certain public health and safety staff The category addresses costs expended to deal with the direct medical impact of COVID-19. Examples of eligible services and programs are: • Vaccination programs(lotteries,vaccination • Capital investments in public facilities to sites) meet pandemic operational needs • Medical expenses • Mental, behavioral health and substance • Testing and contact tracing abuse treatment • PPE purchases • Support for vulnerable populations to • Public communication efforts access medical or public health service • Public health, healthcare, human services, • Enhancement of healthcare capacity public safety and similar employee payroll • Support for prevention,mitigation,or other (to extent they work in COVID-19 services in congregate living facilities and response) schools lb.Addressing the negative economic impacts caused by the pandemic. In responding to the negative economic impact of COVID-19,the City may use CLFR dollars to alleviate the economic hardships caused by the pandemic. Examples of eligible expenditures include: • Aid to unemployed workers • Aid to impacted industries such as tourism, • Aid to households facing food, housing, or travel, and hospitality other financial insecurity • NOTE: may not be used for expansion or • Support to small businesses (loans, grants, in- upgrade of facilities unless they were kind assistance) previously planned and delayed due to • Rehiring local government staff to meet pre- pandemic pandemic levels Included within this category is assistance to the hardest-hit communities and families. CLFR dollars may be used for the following services and programs if they are provided with a Qualified Census Tract ("QCT"), to families living in a QCT, or to other populations, households, or geographic areas disproportionately impacted by the pandemic: • Services to address homelessness • Addressing health disparities, including • Affordable housing development community violence programs • Housing vouchers, residential counseling, or • Addressing educational disparities housing navigation assistance • Promoting healthy childhood environments Treasury guidance also provides examples of eligible uses that may not clearly fit within the identified category. For example,the guidance indicates that investments in parks and other public outdoor recreation spaces may be allowable if it is responsive to the needs of disproportionately impacted communities by promoting healthier living environments. Outdoor recreation also increases socialization and mitigates the spread of COVID-19. Page 2 of 6 2. Providing premium pay to essential workers. Workers who have continued to work throughout the pandemic to maintain the continuity of operations of essential critical sectors are eligible for premium pay. The City can either provide premium pay directly to eligible workers or provide grants to businesses with employees qualifying as essential workers. Individuals who qualify as an essential worker include: • Staff at nursing homes,hospitals,and home care • Public health and safety employees settings • Childcare workers, educators, and other school • Workers at farms, food production facilities, staff grocery stores,and restaurants • Social service and human services staff • Truck drivers, transit staff, and warehouse • Janitors and sanitation workers workers NOTE: While CLFR guidance provides for such use, Washington law likely precludes use for premium pay for work already performed and paid for, as it is considered a gift since the work has already occurred and been compensated. It would not prevent premium pay for future work if offered as part of the anticipated compensation for the work performed. 3.Replacing lost public sector revenue. CLFR dollars may be used to replace budget shortfalls resulting from COVID-19. ARPA provides a formula to determine "lost revenue." The Treasury will presume that any decrease in actual revenue relative to the expected revenue trend is due to COVID-19. The revenue trend is calculated at 4.1% per year or the actual annual average revenue growth over the three full fiscal years prior to the pandemic, whichever is higher. The City can calculate the extent of the reduction in revenues as of four points in time with the first measurement being December 31, 2020. Replacement of revenue is intended to avoid cutting valuable public services and ensure that fiscal austerity measures do not hamper economic recovery. This being the case, amounts calculated as lost revenue can generally be used to provide general governmental services.However, CLFR dollars cannot be placed in the rainy-day fund or other financial reserves. Staff calculated a range of$5.6 million to $10.8 million for lost revenues at December 31,2020. The range reflects the fact that Treasury has still not released final guidance, and there is some uncertainty as to whether certain revenues sources, such as State grants,may be excluded from the calculation of the loss. 4.Investing in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure. CLFR dollars spent in this category align with eligible projects under the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. Project examples under each program include: Clean Water Drinking Water • Construction of publicly-owned treatment • Treatment works • Transmission and distribution (including lead • Nonpoint source pollution management service line replacement) • National estuary program projects • Source rehabilitation and decontamination • Decentralized wastewater treatment systems • Storage • Stormwater systems • Consolidation • Water measures for publicly-owned facilities • New systems development Eligible broadband projects will readily deliver minimum speeds of 100 Mbps download and 100 Mbps upload. If impractical to do so,then speeds should reach at least 20 Mbps. Broadband projects can target both private and public users. NOTE: Generally, CLFR Funds may not be used for other infrastructure (e.g., roads, other utilities). Page 3 of 6 OTHER FUNDS(besides CLFR) CORONAVIRUS CAPITAL PROJECTS FUND ARPA established the$10 billion Coronavirus Capital Projects Fund("CCPF")to provide funding to states, territories, and Tribal governments to carry out critical capital projects directly enabling work, education, and health monitoring, including remote options, in response to the public health emergency with respect to the COVID-19. The focus of the CCPF on the continuing need for connectivity in response to the COVID-19 pandemic complements the broader range of uses under ARPA.Washington State was allocated $196 million from this fund. ASSISTANCE FOR AMERICAN FAMILIES AND WORKERS ARPA provided several programs for individuals and families. These programs included Economic Impact Payments of up to$1,400 for eligible individuals,an extension of unemployment assistance of an additional $300 per week through September 4, 2021, and waived federal income taxes on the first $10,200 of unemployment benefits, as well as an expansion of the Child Tax Credit. ARPA will also provide approximately $43 billion for various child care programs. ASSISTANCE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES ARPA includes over$63 billion in assistance to small businesses,including $28.6 billion for a Restaurant Revitalization Fund, an additional $7.25 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program, and $15 billion for targeted Economic Injury Disaster Loans. ARPA also provides$10 billion to fund the State Small Business Credit Initiative("SSBCI"). Washington State was allocated $124,435,638 under SSBCI. ASSISTANCE FOR EDUCATION ARPA includes about $168 billion in funding for education purposes, including $122.7 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund. Washington State was allocated$1,853,788 from this fund, and it is anticipated that about 90%of these funds will be passed through to local school districts. ASSISTANCE FOR HOUSING AND HOMELESS SERVICES Homeowner Assistance Fund ARPA provides $9.961 billion for the Homeowner Assistance Fund ("HAF"). Funds from HAF may be used for assistance with mortgage payments,homeowner's insurance,utility payments,and other specified purposes. Washington State was allocated $173,153,935 under HAF, and the Washington State Department of Commerce will administer the HAF program for the State. Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERA) ARPA provides up to$21.55 billion for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program("ERA")which is provided directly to states(including the District of Columbia),U.S.territories(Puerto Rico,the United States Virgin Islands, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa), and local governments with more than 200,000 residents. At least 90 percent of awarded funds must be used for direct financial assistance,including rent,rental arrears,utilities Page 4 of 6 and home energy costs, utilities and home energy costs arrears, and other expenses related to housing. Remaining funds are available for housing stability services,including case management and other services intended to keep households stably housed. After subtracting out amounts allocated to local jurisdictions, Washington State received $254,886,596 in ERA funds. Additionally, Spokane County was allocated$7,173,770 and the City of Spokane was allocated $5,297,865 under this program. Homeless Assistance and Affordable Housing Programs ARPA included $5 billion for the Homelessness Assistance and Supportive Services Program, which will be allocated through HOME Investment Partnerships Program. Washington State was allocated$23,443,764 of this amount,and Spokane County and the City of Spokane were allocated $3,005,209 and $4,627,671, respectively. ARPA also included $5 billion in Emergency Housing Vouchers, and the local Continuum of Care will receive an allocation of 224 housing choice vouchers through this program. CURRENT IDENTIFIED FUNDING OPTION CATEGORIES At the July 13,2021 meeting, Council discussed various ideas for how the City might use CLFR dollars to help support the community.In addition,staff has identified several options that fit within the eligible uses of this funding. The below list summarizes these options into general categories: • Internal City costs—including staff payroll costs for CLFR administration,consultant costs for eligibility questions and best practices,extra cleaning costs for City facilities,PPE for City use, and UV light filtration in the HVAC systems for City facilities • Staff recommends setting aside $250,000 for these internal costs • Park amenities or construction costs • Installation of the Sullivan Park water line • Landlord assistance • Mental health assistance • Assistance for childcare businesses • Assistance for small businesses harmed by the pandemic • Premium pay for law enforcement • Assistance for citizens through partnerships with social service organizations,such as Spokane Valley Partners • Construction on water projects through partnerships with local water districts • Construction on sewer projects through partnerships with Spokane County • Homelessness services such as • A day drop-in center • Emergency shelters • Funding for items such as hotel stays,campsites,gas vouchers,and other transportation costs At this time, Staff are looking for direction and Council consensus for those categories it wishes to include for funding and/or further analysis. Once Council has identified the items for the list, staff will work towards contacting local service providers and stakeholders for information regarding community need. This information gathering will take various forms,depending on the nature of the category and those that Council wishes to benefit. For certain programs,it may involve stakeholder information presented directly to Council. All of this information will be compiled and provided to City Council so that Council may then determine the appropriate need and allocation to each category/project/use. Page 5 of 6 OPTIONS: Discussion. Council consensus on programs for CLFR. RECOMMENDED ACTION OR MOTION: Council consensus on programs for CLFR. BUDGET/FINANCIAL IMPACTS: Approximately $16 million added to budget for eligible expenses.

The State Auditor's Office arrived on site on July 26th and are currently working on completing the single audit and financial statement portions of the audit. We do not expect the audit to be completed before the end of the summer. 2022 Budclet Development The 2022 Budget development process began in the Finance Department in early March, and on April 6th we sent detailed budget requests to all departments to complete by mid-May. By the time the budget is scheduled to be adopted on November 9th, the Council will have had an opportunity to discuss the budget on seven occasions including three public hearings. • June 15 Council budget workshop • August 17 Admin report on 2022 revenues and expenditures • September 14 Public hearing #1 on the 2022 revenues and expenditures • September 21 City Manager's presentation of preliminary 2022 Budget • October 12 Public hearing #2 on 2022 Budget • October 26 First reading on proposed ordinance adopting the 2022 Budget • November 9 Public hearing #3 on the 2022 Budget • November 9 Second reading on proposed ordinance adopting the 2022 Budget 2022 Property Tax Levy A significant part of the budget development process includes the annual levy of property taxes which in 2022 are expected to account for approximately 25.13% of recurring General Fund revenues. Council discussions specifically related to this topic will take place at the following meetings: • September 14 Public hearing on 2022 revenues including property taxes • September 21 Admin Report on proposed ordinance levying 2022 property taxes • October 12 First reading of ordinance levying 2022 property taxes and confirming tax levy • October 26 Second reading of ordinance levying 2022 property taxes and confirming tax levy P:1FinancelFinance Activity Reports\Council Monthly Reports1202112021 07 31.docx Page 1 Outside Agency Funding in the 2022 Budget The City has historically provided funding for local organizations involved in either social services or economic development activities and the preliminary 2022 Budget currently has $244,000 collectively available for this, with $62,000 being set aside for contracted economic development. The schedule leading to awarding funds is as follows: • July 16 Letters mailed to agencies that have historically received funding, media release to City website and notice to newspapers • August 13 Agency requests are due at City Hall • September 21 Economic development and social service agency presentations to Council • October 26 Council makes final determination of awards Lodging Tax The schedule leading to awarding funds is as follows: • August 27 Letters mailed to agencies that have historically received funding, media release to City website and notice to newspapers • October 1 Grant applications due at City Hall • October 13 Grant applicant presentations to lodging tax advisory committee • November 9 Admin report to Council on results of lodging tax advisory committee meeting • December 14 City Council motion consideration: Award lodging tax for 2022 Budget to Actual Comparison Report A report reflecting 2021 Budget to Actual Revenues and Expenditures for those funds for which a 2021 Budget was adopted is located on pages 6 through 19. Because we attempt to provide this information in a timely manner, this report is prepared from records that are not formally closed by the Finance Department at month end or reconciled to bank records. Although it is realistic to expect the figures will change over subsequent weeks, I believe the report is materially accurate. We've included the following information in the report: • Revenues by source for all funds, and expenditures by department in the General Fund and by type in all other funds. • A breakdown between recurring and nonrecurring revenues and expenditures in the General Fund, Street O&M Fund and Stormwater Fund. • The change in fund balance including beginning and ending figures. The beginning fund balance figures are those that are reflected in our 2020 Annual Financial Report. • Columns of information include: o The 2021 Budget as adopted o July 2021 activity o Cumulative 2021 activity through July 2021 o Budget remaining in terms of dollars o The percent of budgeted revenue collected or budgeted expenditures disbursed A few points related to the General Fund #001 (page 6): Recurring revenues collections are currently at 62.43% of the amount budgeted with 58.33% of the year elapsed. P:1FinancelFinance Activity Reports\Council Monthly Reports1202112021 07 31.docx Page 2 • Property taxes are paid to Spokane County in two installments each year on April 30 and October 31 and are then remitted to the City primarily in May and November with lesser amounts typically remitted in June and December. Property taxes received thus far in 2021 are $7,346,769 or 57.74% of the amount budgeted. • Sales tax collections represent only six months of collections thus far because taxes collected in July are not remitted to the City by the State until the latter part of August. Collections are currently at$15,712,626 or 62.35% of the amount budgeted. • Gambling taxes are at$208,212 or 54.22% of the amount budgeted. Gambling taxes are paid quarterly with second quarter payments due by July 31st. • Franchise Fee and Business Registration revenues are typically received in the month following a calendar year quarter. So far in 2021 we have received $396,368 or 32.62% of the amount budgeted. • State shared revenues are composed of State of Washington distributions that include items such as liquor board profits, liquor excise tax, streamlined sales tax mitigation and criminal justice monies. Most of these revenues are paid by the State in the month following a calendar quarter. Through July we've received remittances totaling $1,218,749 or 69.25% of the amount budgeted. • Fines and forfeitures revenues are composed of monthly remittances from Spokane County with payments made in the month following the actual assessment of a fine and false alarm fees. Through July we've received remittances through the month of June with receipts of $234,222 or 23.19% of the amount budgeted. This amount is lower than average this year because of a change in accounting rules that requires the City to account for the passed through District Court revenues in a separate custodial fund. There will be a future budget amendment moving those passed through revenues to the new fund. • Community and Public Works service revenues are largely composed of building permit and plan review fees as well as right of way permits. Revenues are currently at $3,150,852 or 165.08% of the amount budgeted. • Recreation program revenues are composed of revenues generated by the variety of parks and recreation programs including classes, swimming pools (in-season), and CenterPlace. Currently, revenues total $182,938 or 28.42% of the amount budgeted. Recurring expenditures are currently at$23,597,822 or 51.92% of the amount budgeted with 58.33% of the year elapsed. Investments (page 20) Investments at July 31 total $86,637,178 and are composed of $81,545,182 in the Washington State Local Government Investment Pool and $5,091,996 in bank CDs. Total Sales Tax Receipts (page 21) Total sales tax receipts reflect State remittances through July and total $17,544,207 including general, criminal justice, and public safety taxes. This figure is$4,778,432 or 37.43% greater than the same six-month period in 2020. Economic Indicators (pages 22 —24) The following economic indicators provide information pertaining to three different sources of tax revenue that provide a good gauge of the health and direction of the overall economy. 1. Sales taxes (page 22) provide a sense of how much individuals and businesses are spending on the purchase of goods. 2. Hotel / Motel taxes (page 23) provide us with a sense of overnight stays and visits to our area by tourists or business travelers. 3. Real Estate Excise taxes (page 24) provide us with a sense of real estate sales. P:1FinancelFinance Activity Reports\Council Monthly Reports1202112021 07 31.docx Page 3 Page 22 provides a 10-year history of general sales tax receipts (not including public safety or criminal justice) with monthly detail beginning January 2012. • Compared with calendar year 2020, 2021 collections have increased by $4,423,146 or 39.18%. • Tax receipts reached an all-time high in 2020 of $25,238,481, besting the previous record year of 2019 when $24,204,762 was collected. Page 23 provides a 10-year history of hotel/motel tax receipts with monthly detail beginning January 2012. • Compared with calendar year 2020, 2021 collections have increased by $71,915 or 41.00%. • Collections reached an all-time high in 2019 of $743,851, and subsequently decreased to $443,243 in 2020. • The decrease in 2020 reflects the effects of COVID-19 on the economy. Page 24 provides a 10-year history of real estate excise tax receipts with monthly detail beginning January 2012. • Compared with calendar year 2020, 2021 collections have increased by$872,613 or 60.36%. • Collections reached an all-time high in 2018 of$3,800,432. Debt Capacity and Bonds Outstandinci (page 25) This page provides information on the City's debt capacity, or the dollar amount of General Obligation (G.O.) Bonds the City may issue, as well as an amortization schedule of the bonds the City currently has outstanding. • The maximum amount of G.O. bonds the City may issue is determined by the assessed value for property taxes which for 2021 is $11,553,065,482. Following the December 1, 2020 debt service payments, the City has $11,120,000 of nonvoted G.O. bonds outstanding which represents 6.42% of our nonvoted bond capacity, and 1.28% of our total debt capacity for all types of bonds. Of this amount: o $4,100,000 remains on bonds issued for the construction of CenterPlace. These bonds are repaid with a portion of the 1/10 of 1% sales tax that is collected by the Spokane Public Facilities District. o $450,000 remains on bonds issued for road and street improvements around CenterPlace. The bonds are repaid with a portion of the real estate excise tax collected by the City. o $6,570,000 remains on bonds issued for construction of the new City Hall. The bonds are to be repaid with General Fund revenues. Street Fund Revenue Sources (pages 26 and 27) The last two charts reflect a history for the two primary sources of revenue in Street Fund #101. These include: Page 26 provides a 10-year history of Motor Vehicle Fuel Tax collections with monthly detail beginning January 2012. • Compared with calendar year 2020, 2021 collections have increased by $67,155 or 8.20%. • Tax receipts peaked in 2007 at just approximately $2.1 million, and have generally ranged around $2 million in the years 2012 through 2020. P:1FinancelFinance Activity Reports\Council Monthly Reports1202112021 07 31.docx Page 4 Page 27 provides a 10-year history of Telephone Utility Tax collections with monthly detail beginning January 2012. • Compared with 2020, 2021 collections have decreased by $194,968 or 26.98%. Unlike tax revenues collected by the State and remitted monthly, these taxes are paid to the City directly by the service provider. Consequently there is not a "clean cutoff' in terms of when a vendor pays the tax. • Tax receipts peaked in 2009 at$3,054,473 and have decreased each year since, due to what we suspect is the reduction in land lines by individual households. • The 2021 budget is set at $1,000,000. We will watch actual receipts closely as the year progresses.

general sales tax, criminal justice sales tax and public safety tax. The sales tax rate for retail sales transacted within the boundaries of the City of Spokane Valley is 8.9%. The tax that is paid by a purchaser at the point of sale is remitted by the vendor to the Washington State Department of Revenue who then remits the taxes back to the various agencies that have imposed the tax. The allocation of the total 8.9%tax rate to the agencies is as follows: - State of Washington 6.50% - City of Spokane Valley 0.85% - Spokane County 0.15% - Spokane Public Facilities District 0.10% * - Criminal Justice 0.10% - Public Safety 0.10% *— 2.40% local tax - Juvenile Jail 0.10% * - Mental Health 0.10% * - Law Enforcement Communications 0.10% * - Spokane Transit Authority 0.80% 8.90% * Indicates voter approved sales taxes In addition to the .85% reported above that the City receives, we also receive a portion of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety sales taxes. The distribution of those taxes is computed as follows: Criminal Justice: The tax is assessed county-wide and of the total collected, the State distributes 10%of the receipts to Spokane County, with the remainder allocated on a per capita basis to the County and the cities within the County. Public Safety: The tax is assessed county-wide and of the total collected, the State distributes 60%of the receipts to Spokane County, with the remainder allocated on a per capita basis to the cities within the County.

Incident Response Team (SIRT) volunteers contributed 83 on-scene hours (including travel time) in June and 178 in July; 48 of those hours in June and 27 of those hours in July were for incidents in Spokane Valley,responding to crime scenes,motor vehicle accidents and providing traffic control. There were two special events in June, both in the county. There were three special events in July; two in the county and one in Spokane Valley. When combining call outs for June and July, SIRT members were out on emergency calls 32 times in 61 days. Astonishingly, this was done with a very limited and reduced staff of only 13 SIRT members. Heat and poor air quality limited their ability to respond to emergency callouts as some members were showing signs of heat exhaustion after standing on hot pavement while directing traffic. Total volunteer hours contributed by SIRT,including training, stand-by, response and special events is 626 for June and 890 for July; total for 2021 is 6,497.

The male, who had clothing with him, was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for two counts of Indecent Exposure and an unrelated misdemeanor warrant for Criminal Trespass and Theft 3rd. In early July, at approximately 10:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputies were called to a shopping center in the 13800 block of E. Indiana for a naked male sitting in front of the stores in view of the public and children. The caller/victim stated the 36-year- old male entered a store and used the bathroom. Approximately a half-hour later, she went into the unlocked bathroom,and the male was completely naked,possibly"washing"himself. The victim told the male to leave and closed the door. Soon after, he exited the bathroom completely naked, only wearing a blue bandana, and walked through the center of the store and out the front door. The male suspect continued west and sat down in a chair in view of the parking lot being utilized by unsuspecting adults and children. Arriving deputies contacted the suspect fondling himself while still naked and sitting in the chair. When contacted,the suspect said he "thought he was sleeping or something." He followed commands and was told he was under arrest. The suspect had a pair of shorts sitting on the ground next to him, which he apparently chose not to wear. The male suspect also had a small pet snake he claimed was a "registered" support animal. SCRAPS responded to the location and took possession of the snake. A check of the suspect's name showed a valid misdemeanor warrant for Criminal Trespass Pt Degree and Theft 3rd Degree. He was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for two new charges of Indecent Exposure and the unrelated warrant. Deputies Search for Wanted Suspect Believed to be Armed and Dangerous - Spokane Valley Deputies continue to search for a suspect who fled in a vehicle before crashing and fleeing on foot. The 28-year-old male suspect has an Idaho Felony Probation Violation warrant and faces multiple felonies stemming from this current incident. Ammunition was found inside the vehicle the suspect wrecked, and he has been armed in the past. The male suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.In early July, at approximately 7:20 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a welfare/medical check of the occupants inside a vehicle in the 1000 block of N. Greenacres. The caller reported the occupants would not wake up or respond to knocking on the window. When deputies arrived, they contacted the driver, who failed to provide his correct name or identification. Seeing obvious signs of illegal drug use, the deputies continued to try and find out if the occupants were okay and what was taking place. Suddenly,the male driver/suspect drove away in the vehicle. Deputies initially pursued the silver passenger car,but promptly terminated it for the safety of the public. They began searching the area and quickly discovered the suspect had crashed the vehicle near Flora and Mission and then fled on foot. As deputies and Liberty Lake Police Officers began searching the area, 9-1-1 started receiving calls of a male matching the suspect's description knocking on doors and attempting to hide at an apartment complex in the 17000 block of N.Flora. The complex was searched,and several witnesses were contacted,but the male suspect was not located. At approximately 9:45 a.m., deputies concluded the search with no sign of the suspect. Approximately 45 minutes later, callers advised an"intruder"was found hiding on the balcony at the same apartment Page 4 complex. Spokane Valley and Spokane Sheriff Deputies, assisted by Spokane Police Officers, and Liberty Lake Police Officers, again flooded the area and established a perimeter. K9 Units, UAVs, and Air 2 searched the area for several hours, but the suspect avoided capture. The suspect is wanted for an Idaho probation and parole violation. A warrant request has been submitted to the Spokane Prosecutor's Office for several new charges including Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement, Burglary, and several other felony and misdemeanor charges. Major Crimes Detectives Investigate Late-Night Shooting at Crowded Bar, One Dead, Two Victims Wounded - Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a fight that escalated into a shooting at a Spokane Valley bar. One victim died at the scene, and two additional victims suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital. In late July, at approximately 12:20 am., Spokane Regional Emergency Communications (SREC) 9-1-1 operators began receiving calls reporting a fight and shooting at Ichabod's East, located at 12116 E. Sprague in Spokane Valley. Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the location, contacted several people in the parking lot, and provided medical aid to one victim while others began to secure the scene. Spokane Valley Fire and AMR personnel arrived quickly and provided medical assistance. A few minutes after deputies arrived,additional gunshots were reported a short distance away from the bar. With very little information regarding suspect(s) or what occurred, deputies requested emergency assistance, calling in Spokane Police Officers, Washington State Patrol Troopers, Liberty Lake Police Officers, and Spokane County Sheriffs Deputies. The area surrounding the tavern was locked down,and the SWAT Team and Air-1 were requested. A thorough search of the surrounding area for suspects or additional victims by SWAT Team members, K9 Units, and Air-1 was unsuccessful. Two persons of interest in the investigation were detained for questioning. Major Crimes Detectives were on scene conducting interviews and collecting evidence with the aid of Spokane County Forensic Unit Technicians. Following their investigation,they arrested a 29-year-old male suspect and charged him with one count of lst Degree Murder and one count of 1st Degree Murder (Attempted) as well as two counts of 1st Degree Assault. A second suspect, a 26-year-old male, was also charged with 2nd Degree Assault. One deceased male victim was located inside the business. A second male gunshot victim with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries was transported to the hospital by witnesses before first responders arrived. The third gunshot victim, a female, was provided medical attention before being transported to the hospital by ambulance. She received medical treatment for her wounds and was later released. .
