“This grant provides very important funding to help us complete the public review draft of the Sequim 120 plan by the end of 2014,” said Chris Hugo, community development director.
The grant is from Growth Management Services, a unit of the state Department of Commerce.
Since 2012, the city has been updating its comprehensive plan, a process called Sequim 120, and is developing alternatives to accommodate the projected growth of 3,000 new residents in the next 20 years.
The development-of-growth alternatives is the second phase of a seven-phase process culminating with the adoption and implementation of the updated comprehensive plan.
The city has contracted with the Rissee Group to assist city staff in the public outreach and development of the public review draft portions of the project.
The Sequim 120 comprehensive plan update is expected to be adopted by the City Council in the spring.
