Comprehensive Plan

The Washington State Growth Management Act  (RCW 36.70) is a state law that requires county and local governments to manage growth. All cities and counties must be in compliance with the requirements of the GMA to be eligible for grants and loans from certain state infrastructure programs.

While the City already has a Comprehensive Plan to manage its growth, the GMA requires that plans be reviewed periodically to better reflect current conditions. The City Commission adopted this most recent periodic update to our Comprehensive Plan on December 26, 2017.
