The Planning Commission will be briefed on the annual consideration of county-initiated amendments to
the GMA comprehensive plan according to the requirements of Chapter 30.73 SCC. Staff is requesting a
public hearing be tentatively scheduled for July 28, 2020, for this year’s package of proposed amendments
that consist of:

GPP20-3 – Technical Map Corrections

The 2020 technical corrections consist of the following amendments to the maps and text of the General
Policy Plan (GPP) and to Title 30, the Unified Development Code (UDC):
a) Updates to Maps 1, 2, 4 and 5 of the General Policy Plan (GPP) to recognize properties that are no
longer under county jurisdiction due to a city annexation;
b) Corrections to identified mapping errors in certain municipal urban growth areas in Map 3 of the
GPP;
c) Updates to the public wastewater systems map in the Capital Facilities Plan due to recent sewer
district annexations; and
d) Removal of references to the outdated Freeway Service zone in the GPP and in the UDC.

PDS Staff will again brief the Planning Commission on proposed code amendments to SCC title 30
regarding the siting and development of accessory apartments (also known as “accessory dwelling units”).
The Commission was also briefed on this topic in late 2018 and February 2020 The briefing will overview
proposed code updates that will work to: 1) reduce regulatory barriers to the siting of accessory apartments
while maintaining protections on health, safety, and welfare; 2) clarify and simplify accessory apartment
provisions; and 3) change the term “accessory apartments” to “accessory dwelling units”.

The Department of Planning and Development Services requests that the Planning Commission schedule
a public hearing in July on the proposal. Following the public hearing, it is requested that the Planning
Commission provide a recommendation to the Snohomish County Council regarding the proposed code
amendments to SCC title 30.
