Staff Reports and Project Files
A Technical Committee Report to the Hearing Examiner is ordinarily available 21 days prior to the date of the hearing. If you do not obtain a copy in advance from the Developmental Services Center, or the Office of the Hearing Examiner, copies are available in hearing chambers on the day of the hearing. The report contains a general summary of the facts, as interpreted by the Technical Committee, and a recommendation to the Hearing Examiner.
The Development Services Center maintains a separate file for every application or appeal. This file is available to the Hearing Examiner and the public. The file normally includes, as pertains to the particular matter: the application; an environmental checklist; Declaration of Significance of Non-Significance; Draft and Final Environmental Impact Statement (if required); records of public notice; and all correspondence received concerning the matter. With few exceptions, these files are public records. Persons interested in a matter are encouraged to review the file in advance of the hearing.
Notice of Public Hearings
Notice of a public hearing on a land development proposal is given by posting the property affected with information signs giving details of the proposal and contact information; publication in the City of Redmond's official newspaper, the Seattle Times; and mailing the notice to owners of adjacent and nearby property lying within a 500-foot radius of the subject property.
