The Graham Community Plan was adopted by the Pierce County Council on October 10, 2006 with an effective date of March 1, 2007. Community Plans are a part of the Comprehensive Plan and provide a more detailed sense of how the community wants the area to develop in the future.
The Graham Community Plan provides a framework for consistent land use standards in both the urban areas and in the outlying rural and natural resource lands. Higher density and intensity development is directed into urban areas, where it can be supported by urban level services and facilities. This also allows rural and natural resource areas to retain the low density, agricultural, and forested character that the community values.
