Pierce County has issued a draft Comprehensive Plan update package and invites the community to learn more about such topics as land use, transportation and regional parks at a series of open houses.
“This is the community’s opportunity to learn how Pierce County will deal with growth in the unincorporated area over the next 20 years,” said Debby Hyde, special projects coordinator. “There is no formal presentation—so drop in anytime during the event. Staff will be available to answer questions.”
The following open houses are open to the public, and will run from 5 to 7 p.m.:
The majority of policies and direction of the County’s current plans will be maintained and carried forward in the update. The update addresses new Washington State legislative requirements and recent changes in land use law.
