[ARCHIVED] Determination of Significance & Request for Comments on Scope of EIS for 2015 Comp. Plan Update

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is required under RCW 43.21C.030 (2)(c) and will be prepared. An EIS that evaluates planning-level proposals, such as changes to a city comprehensive plan, is referred to as a programmatic EIS. A programmatic EIS does not evaluate the impacts associated with a specific development project; rather, it contains broader, planning level analyses that emphasize cumulative impacts, policy-level alternatives, and program-level mitigation measures. The City of Monroe Comprehensive Plan Update EIS will contain programmatic analyses of potential significant impacts associated with adoption of the EIS Alternatives. Individual development projects occurring under the policies of the updated Comprehensive Plan will be subject to any SEPA review required by state, county, and city regulations.
