AN ORDINANCE relating to comprehensive planning; adopting the 2006-2007 King County space plan; and amending Ordinance 10810, Section 1, as amended, and K.C.C. 20.12.100.
      SECTION 1.  Findings.
      A.  County code currently requires county council approval of a county space plan every two years.  Council has previously approved the 2002 and 2004 space plans.
      B.  Transmittal of the 2006 - 2007 Space Plan to council by the executive was delayed due to the other significant facility planning efforts that were underway and the need to establish final direction regarding Chinook Building tenancy, designation of a new elections site and assessment of options for a new county data center.
      C.  There are currently many major on-going facilities planning efforts underway, including major criminal justice facilities master plans and the evaluation of the proposal to redevelop the King County Administration Building site.  Given the status of those efforts and the significant impact they may have on county space planning, development of a wholly new space plan should await the outcome of those efforts.  The attached 2006 -2007 Space Plan with the updated Executive Summary should therefore serve as the 2008 Space Plan.
      SECTION 2.  Ordinance 10810, Section 1, and K.C.C. 20.12.100 are each hereby amended to read as follows:
      The ((2005)) 2008 county space plan((, dated July 13, 2005)), consisting of ((planning policies, location of county agencies and implementation plan, and incorporating the King County Department of Executive Services Space Plan 2004 transmitted by the executive on July 23, 2004)) space standards, current and future space needs, county facility development policy framework for office space and implementation plan as contained in Attachment A to this ordinance, is adopted as a subelement of the public facilities element of  the ((e))Comprehensive ((p))Plan ((and the master plan for county facility development as defined in K.C.C. 4.04.020.  The county space plan dated July 13, 2005, shall govern development of all facility master plans, facility program plans and CIP and lease requests for space housing county agency operations)).
      The executive shall update the current and future space needs and implementation plans of the county space plan and submit them to the council as amendments to the county space plan by March 1 of every other year, beginning on March 1, 2006.  In accordance with Motion 11118, any future space plan documentation should use as a guideline the document "A Template for Space Planning:  Recommendation from the King County Space & Facilities Peer Review Panel December 2000" ("peer review report"), which was adopted as Attachment C to Ordinance 14515.  While the peer review report should guide the preparation of future space planning documentation, it report does not constitute mandatory requirements for space planning.
