body

                     BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:

                     SECTION 1.  Findings:

                     A.  The Growth Management Act ("the GMA") and the King County Code ("K.C.C.") allow the adoption of comprehensive plan updates only once per year, except under certain circumstances.  The amendments to policies and text in this ordinance constitute the 2022 update to the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan, as amended.

                     B.  The last statutorily required Comprehensive Plan update required by RCW 36.70A.130 was met with the 2012 King County Comprehensive Plan that was adopted as part of Ordinance 17485.  RCW 36.70A.130 requires King County to complete the next statutorily required  review of the Comprehensive Plan on or before December31, 2024.  The 2022 update adopted as part of this ordinance does not serve as the statutory update required by RCW 36.70A.130.

                     C.  The 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan launched a Community Service Areas subarea planning program.  Community Service Area ("CSA") subarea plans are scheduled to be created for the six rural CSAs and for the five large urban unincorporated potential annexation areas.  The CSA subarea planning program recognizes the county's role as a local service provider in the unincorporated area, including for localized long-range planning.  Many areas of unincorporated King County have not had subarea planning since the 1990s or earlier.  The CSA subarea planning program will provide improved coordination, accountability and service delivery in the area of long-range planning for unincorporated areas of King County.

                     D.  This ordinance adopts the Skyway-West Hill and North Highline Community Service Area Subarea Plans, related map amendments, and modifications to property specific zoning conditions.  It also adopts map amendments in the Fall City and Maple Valley areas.  Under the K.C.C., the 2022 Comprehensive Plan update is an annual update.

                     E.  The GMA and K.C.C. 20.18.030 require that King County adopt development regulations that are consistent with and implement the Comprehensive Plan.  The changes to development regulations and maps in this ordinance maintain conformity with the King County Comprehensive Plan.  They bear a substantial relationship to, are necessary for, the public health, safety and general welfare of King County and its residents.

                     F.  The county adopted the 2020 update to the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan as part of Ordinance 19146.  The 2020 update included Workplan Action 19, directing King County to complete an Anti-displacement Strategies Report for Skyway-West Hill and North Highline.

                     G.  In September 2021, the Skyway-West Hill and North Highline Anti-displacement Strategies Report was transmitted to the council.  As stated in the report, its "recommended anti-displacement strategies provide a concrete path for King County's efforts to address historic disinvestment and structural racism in two diverse and culturally rich neighborhoods, in alignment with King County's affordable housing and equity and social justice goals."

                     H.  As a result of the analysis, the Anti-displacement Strategies Report determined that "the combination of rising housing prices, the high rate of cost burdened households, and lower than average incomes put Skyway-West Hill and North Highline residents at increased risk of displacement."

                     I.  To address those displacement risks, the report recommends, and this ordinance adopts, an inclusionary housing program that includes mandatory elements in the Skyway and White Center Unincorporated Activity Centers, and voluntary elements in the remainder of the Skyway-West Hill and North Highline subarea geographies.

                     J.  The inclusionary housing program includes standards for the characteristics of affordable units, allows fee in-lieu payments in limited cases, sets appropriate affordability levels, and requires covenants and deed restrictions specifying the affordability levels and terms.

                     K.  This ordinance also requires a community preference policy for affordable dwelling units built under the inclusionary housing program, in order to further reduce displacement risks.

                     L.  The King County Countywide Planning Policies, King County Comprehensive Plan, Skyway-West Hill Subarea Plan, North Highline Subarea Plan and Regional Affordable Housing Task Force Final Report and Recommendations support the development and use of anti-displacement measures, including mandatory inclusionary housing and community preference provisions.

                     SECTION 2.  A.  Attachments A, B, C and D to this ordinance are adopted as amendments to the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan, as adopted in Ordinance 18472 and its attachments and as amended by Ordinance 1862, Ordinance 18810, Ordinance 19034 and Ordinance 19146.

                     B.  The elements of the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan in Attachment A to this ordinance are hereby amended to read as set forth in this ordinance and are incorporated herein by this reference.

                     C.  The Skyway-West Hill Community Service Area Subarea Plan in Attachment B to this ordinance is hereby adopted as an amendment to and an element of the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan.

                     D.  The North Highline Community Service Area Subarea Plan in Attachment C to this ordinance is hereby adopted as an amendment to and an element of the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan.

                     E.  The land use and zoning amendments in sections 17 through 20 of this ordinance and Attachment D to this ordinance are hereby adopted as amendments to Appendix A to Ordinance 12824, as amended, and as the official land use and zoning controls for those portions of unincorporated King County defined in those sections of this ordinance and attachments to this ordinance.

                     F.  The King County department of local services, permitting division, shall update the geographic information system data layers accordingly to reflect adoption of this ordinance.

                     SECTION 3.  Ordinance 263, Article 2,  Section 1, as amended, and K.C.C. 20.12.010 are hereby amended to read as follows:

                     Under the King County Charter, the state Constitution and the Washington state Growth Management Act, chapter 36.70A RCW, King County adopted the 1994 King County Comprehensive Plan via Ordinance 11575 and declared it to be the Comprehensive Plan for King County until amended, repealed or superseded.  The Comprehensive Plan has been reviewed and amended multiple times since its adoption in 1994.  Amendments to the 1994 Comprehensive Plan to-date are currently reflected in the 2016 King County Comprehensive Plan, as adopted in Ordinance 18427 and as amended by Ordinance 18623, Ordinance 18810, Ordinance 19034 ((and)), Ordinance 19146 and this ordinance.  The Comprehensive Plan shall be the principal planning document for the orderly physical development of the county and shall be used to guide subarea plans, functional plans, provision of public facilities and services, review of proposed incorporations and annexations, development regulations and land development decisions.

                     SECTION 4.  Ordinance 11653, Section 6, as amended, and K.C.C. 20.12.017 are hereby amended to read as follows:

                     A.  The purpose of the transfer of development rights program is to transfer residential density from eligible sending sites to eligible receiving sites through a voluntary process that permanently preserves urban, rural and resource lands that provide a public benefit.  The TDR provisions are intended to supplement land use regulations, resource protection efforts and open space acquisition programs and to encourage increased residential development density or increased commercial square footage, especially inside cities, where it can best be accommodated with the least impacts on the natural environment and public services by:

                       1.  Providing an effective and predictable incentive process for property owners of rural, resource and urban separator land to preserve lands with a public benefit as described in K.C.C. 21A.37.020; and

                       2.  Providing an efficient and streamlined administrative review system to ensure that transfers of development rights to receiving sites are evaluated in a timely way and balanced with other county goals and policies, and are adjusted to the specific conditions of each receiving site.

                     B.  The TDR provisions in this chapter shall only apply to TDR receiving site development proposals:

                       2.a.  The department of natural resources and parks shall undertake a "TDR for affordable housing" pilot program, in which transferrable development rights necessary to construct up to one hundred total units shall be sold at the administrative cost incurred by the county or fifteen percent of the fair market value of the development rights, whichever is less.

                         b.  In order to qualify for this program, all units built using the development rights must be either:

                           (1)  rental housing permanently priced to serve households with a total household income at or below ((forty)) sixty percent of ((the median income for the county as defined by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, adjusted for household size))  AMI.  A covenant on the property that specifies the income level being served, rent levels and requirements for reporting to King County shall be recorded at final approval; or

                           (2)  housing reserved for income- and asset-qualified home buyers with total household income at or below ((forty)) sixty percent of ((the median income for the county as defined by the United Stated Department of Housing and Urban Development, adjusted for household size)) AMI.  The units shall be limited to owner-occupied housing with prices restricted based on typical underwriting ratios and other lending standards, and with no restriction placed on resale.  Final approval conditions shall specify requirements for reporting to King County on both buyer eligibility and housing prices.

                           (2)  ((I))For all other areas in unincorporated King County, in the R-4 through R-48 zones, development rights to build units through this pilot program shall only be sold for units between one hundred fifty percent and two hundred percent of the receiving site's base density as set forth in K.C.C. 21A.12.030.

                         d.(1)  The department of natural resources and parks shall track the sale of development rights and completion of units constructed through this program. When the one hundred unit threshold is reached, the department shall, within six months of that date, transmit a report to the council that includes, but is not limited to:

                     B.  When selling development rights, the TDR bank may select prospective purchasers based on the price offered for the development rights, the number of development rights offered to be purchased((,)) and the potential for the sale to achieve the purposes of the TDR program.

                     C.  The TDR bank may sell development rights only in whole or half increments to incorporated receiving sites through an interlocal agreement or, after the county enacts legislation that complies with chapter 365-198 WAC, to incorporated receiving sites in a city that has enacted legislation that complies with chapter 365-198 WAC.  The TDR bank may sell development rights only in whole increments to unincorporated King County receiving sites.

                     D.  All offers to purchase development rights from the TDR bank shall be in writing, shall include a certification that the development rights, if used, shall be used only inside an identified city or within the urban unincorporated area, include a minimum ten percent down payment with purchase option, shall include the number of development rights to be purchased, location of the receiving site, proposed purchase price and the required date or dates for completion of the sale, not later than three years after the date of receipt by King County of the purchase offer.
