Sub Area Map (pdf)


Application: The City of Selah is preparing a plan for the development of a Sub-Area Plan of its central urban area to encourage economic development and enhance the quality of life within the area of the neighborhood plan by providing for a mixed use-infill overlay or other development regulation changes which would encourage higher quality housing, encourage mixed use development, promote commerce, create revitalized neighborhoods, and beautify the neighborhood planning area.

Open Public Informational Meeting: Notice is hereby given that on Friday, November 8th, 2017, commencing at 5:30 P.M., or as soon thereafter as practical, the City of Selah will conduct an informational public meeting in the Selah Civic Center, 216 S. 1st Ave. Selah, WA. As a first step in this process, the City would like to invite all interested parties to attend. The City’s Planning Department and land use consultants will provide an overview of the Sub Area planning process and objectives at the meeting.

In addition to the informational meeting, the City is also seeking stakeholders who would be interested in sharing their thoughts, goals, and objectives for the City in an individual setting with the City’s land use development team.   If you or someone you know is interested in being a part of this planning effort please contact Jeff Peters, City of Selah Community Development Supervisor at 509-698-7367, or jeff.peters@selahwa.gov.
