Bothell Looking to Increase Canyon Park Regional Growth Center Density

The Bothell City Council continues to consider options to increase residential density in the Canyon Park Regional Growth Center. Recent changes by the Puget Sound Regional Council on the qualifications for Growth Center status have prompted the exercise. To qualify, an area must plan for a capacity of 45 “activity units” per acre, defined as the number of people that reside and/or are employed within the designated center. Canyon Park currently falls below that threshold.

The city is discussing the following minimums for Canyon Park:

  • Residential density of 35 units per acre
  • Non-residential density: a floor area ratio of 0.6
  • Mixed use development: a floor area of 1.5

View more details on the city’s project.

Contact Senior Snohomish County Mike Pattison, 425.460.8203, with any questions.
