The Mercer Island Comprehensive Plan establishes the City's goals for the future of the community. The Plan should be viewed as a dynamic document that is updated as community values, conditions and needs change. To this end, the City performs periodic reviews of the plan and amendments as changing conditions require and community input dictates.
Every year, the City Council establishes a list, or docket, of possible comprehensive plan amendments for further analysis and consideration. Review of the docketed amendments is conducted first by the Planning Commission, and then by the City Council.
