A summary of the proposed ordinance is as follows: PROPOSED ORDNANCE NO. 21-090 Sections 1, 2, and 3. Adopt recitals, findings, and conclusions, and states that the Snohomish County Council bases its decision on the entire record. Section 4. Adopts the 2022-2027 CIP as shown in Exhibit A to the ordinance. The CIP is a component of the Capital Facilities Plan but is a physically separate document that fulfills the county’s related financial and infrastructure responsibilities required under state and local law. The CIP divides the county’s capital projects into three broad categories: 1) General Government; 2) Transportation; and 3) Proprietary. The CIP incorporates, by reference, the annual Transportation Improvement Program and its supporting documents for the surface transportation capital construction program. The CIP also includes a determination that probable funding for public facilities that are necessary to support development are adequate and will not fall short of maintaining minimum level-of-service standards (called the “statement of assessment”). Section 5. States that the 2022-2027 CIP supersedes all other county capital improvement programs. Section 6. Includes a severability and savings clause. Attachment to the Ordinance: Exhibit A. Executive-Recommended 2022-2027 Capital Improvement Program.
