Sustainable Cathcart Project
The Sustainable Cathcart Project is an innovative proposal to develop a sustainable, full-service community on the county-owned Cathcart property located near the intersection of Cathcart Way and SR 9 in unincorporated Snohomish County.

The Sustainable Cathcart Project was launched by County Executive Aaron Reardon in May 2008 as a vision to create a sustainable, full-service community on approximately 200 acres of the publicly-owned Cathcart property northeast of Willis Tucker Community Park.
Following a series of meetings with neighborhood residents and technical advisors during the summer and fall of 2008, County staff drafted amendments to the comprehensive plan to reflect Executive Reardon’s vision for the Cathcart property. The County Council subsequently decided to consider these amendments as part of the comprehensive plan amendment process in 2010 (Docket XIV).
On April 27, 2010, the County Planning Commission recommended amendments to the Comprehensive Plan that will allow the project to be developed on the Cathcart site as envisioned by Executive Reardon. The proposed amendments moved to the County Council for adoption. The Council held a public hearing on July 7, 2010 prior to voting on adoption of the amendments. In a unanimous vote on July 7, the Snohomish County Council adopted Ordinance 10-042, amending the County’s Comprehensive Plan (GPP5) in support of the Sustainable Cathcart Project vision map.
