Because King County’s current priority is responding to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, work on many other projects is being postponed. This includes the North Highline Subarea Plan. We will update this page when we have a new, approved timeline for this project. You can also subscribe below (under Get Involved) to receive email updates about this project.

The North Highline Subarea Plan will guide development in North Highline over the next 20 years. It will focus on zoning, long-term land use, and issues like housing, commercial and industrial areas, and community character.

County staff members are working to help identify important land use issues, receive public feedback on draft proposals, and make sure the plan reflects residents’ vision for their community.
