The Community Development Department and the Planning Commission have developed a proposal to update the permitted uses in each zoning district and amend specific zoning district boundaries.

The proposal will aid the City in implementing the goals and polices of the City's Comprehensive Plan by promoting infill development, increasing density in proximity to services and amenities, and allowing for mixed use development.

Online Survey

The online survey contains information on the City of Ellensburg's proposal to update its zoning ordinance and opportunity to share your suggestions. The City's decision-makers use this ordinance to implement the City's 20-year plan and manage growth and development in the City. Capturing community input is vital to this update.

Please complete this survey by June 30, 2019 to help the City better understand the issues that are important to you. The survey has 44 questions and will take approximately 15-20 minutes of your time. We appreciate your valuable input!
