Ezone Map Correction Project summary of testimony and site visits results

News Article
The public is invited to review a summary of testimony provided on the Ezone Map Correction Project and results of site visits.
Published

In June 2020 staff released the Proposed Draft Ezone Map Correction Project and it was the subject of public testimony in July and February. Since the release, hundreds of people have testified and there have been many follow up site visits. In an effort to consolidate and summarize public input, staff have prepared a table and corresponding maps for each person who has testified or requested a site visit. The materials are available for the public to review.

Go to the project documents and scroll down to Planning and Sustainability Commission materials 

  1. Click on the document called Ezone Project Summary Table Map Cover Table. A cover memo precedes a table, which includes a row of information for each property owner or testifier.  
  2. The rows are organized alphabetically by last name. Scroll to your name. 
  3. Each property has a corresponding map reference number. 
  4. Once you have found your property and map page numbers, go back to the web page and open the link to the group of maps that includes the map page numbers for the subject property.

About the Project

The Ezone Map Correction Project is correcting the boundaries of the conservation and protection overlay zones to better align with existing streams, wetlands, tree canopy, steep slopes and wildlife habitat. The project started in 2018 with a focus on confirming where the features are located through a series of site visits. Site visits are ongoing through at least fall 2021. To request a site visit, please contact Ezones staff.

The public was invited to testify to the Planning and Sustainability Commission in July 2020 and February 2021. PSC is expected to make a recommendation on the project in July 2021. The recommendation will be forwarded to City Council, who will hold another public hearing. The date has not been set yet for the City Council hearing.
