Marymoor Subarea Infrastructure Planning
The City is developing an integrated infrastructure plan for the Marymoor Subarea of Southeast Redmond. The outcome of this work will be an infrastructure plan and phasing plan that are consistent with the Marymoor Subarea vision and that provide clear guidance to City staff, property owners and developers as the City processes redevelopment applications and makes capital investment decisions. Formal review and plan adoption is expected later in 2016. See additional information here.

Citizen Advisory Committee Recommendation
The Southeast Redmond Neighborhood CAC has recommended a set of neighborhood plan policies that address the long-term evolution of the Southeast Redmond neighborhood. Key elements of the recommendation include:
- Retaining land for manufacturing and industry;
- Recognizing the importance of Redmond's groundwater and surface water and supporting citywide plans and policies to protect them;
- Planning for new residential and employment opportunities in the area north of Woodbridge;
- Improving mobility for all modes by planning for new motorized and nonmotorized connections;
- Prioritizing transportation corridors for efficient heavy-duty truck travel and freight transit;
- Supporting housing affordability and choice;
- Completing planned trail connections and developing existing parks;
- Enhancing a sense of place and community through opportunities for gathering places, particularly as part of private development and design of the public realm;
- Renaming the Gateway Design District to the Regional Retail subarea while maintaining the same land use intent in neighborhood plan policies; and
- Maintaining current zoning along Redmond Way, preserving the limits of the Manufacturing Park Overlay.
About the Southeast Redmond Neighborhood
The Southeast Redmond neighborhood is bounded generally on the west by Marymoor Park and the terminus of SR 520, on the south and east by the City limit, and on the north by Evans Creek and Bear Creek.
Land uses in Southeast Redmond vary, including business park in the north, industry and retail in the western portion, and moderate-density residential in the eastern and southern parts of the neighborhood.
