2021 Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process

2021 Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process

Covington’s Comprehensive Plan translates community values and vision into the framework for guiding city decisions on the nature and intensity of development in the city. Covington’s 2015-2035 Comprehensive Plan is an evolving document and will be periodically reviewed and revised over the next 20 years. The GMA limits Comprehensive Plan amendments to no more than once per calendar year, except for certain exemptions and emergency actions. Anyone can suggest an amendment, including residents, business owners, council members and city staff.

If you are interested in more information, the Comprehensive Plan Amendment Guide, Timeline and Application can be found on the city’s website.  


 The city will begin accepting privately initiated 2021 Comprehensive Plan amendment applications on November 9, 2020. To be eligible for consideration, applications for privately initiated amendments must be submitted prior to 5 p.m. on January 8, 2021.
