Valley View Industrial Park v. City of Redmond
Washington Supreme Court
733 P.2d 182 (1987)
Valley View Industrial Park (plaintiff) planned to develop an industrial park on a 26.71-acre parcel of land within the City of Redmond (the city) (defendant). The city assigned the parcel a light industrial zoning classification in 1964. During the 1970’s, the city began the process of revising its land-use policies and regulations to conform with its comprehensive land-use plan. In September of 1978, Valley View submitted a site plan for the proposed development of the industrial park and building permit application for one of the 12 buildings it planned to build. The city requested additional information on several occasions, and each time Valley View complied with the request. In early 1979, Valley View submitted building-permit applications for four additional buildings to be built in the industrial park. In June of 1979, the city enacted a revised zoning code, which rezoned the Valley View property from light industrial to agricultural use. The city then refused to allow Valley View to continue with its development plans. Valley View filed suit against the city.
