The Olympia City Council on Tuesday will consider delaying its approval of an updated comprehensive city plan until June.
Council members will meet at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 601 Fourth Ave. E.
The city has been working since 2009 to update the comprehensive plan, its first major revision since 1994. The council targeted a December finish but got bogged down in another multiyear planning effort, the Shoreline Master Program.
City staff recommend the council delay adopting the comprehensive plan to allow time for public outreach. Four public workshops would be part of the process.
The plan covers several aspects of the city, including value and vision statements, sea-level rise, urban agriculture, downtown planning, street connectivity, view corridors and building height limits.
The state Growth Management Act requires the city to have such a plan and to update it periodically.
This would not be the first delay for the comprehensive plan. The city had planned to adopt it in 2012.
