2015 Comprehensive Plan Update
"Engaging Our Future"
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
It sets a vision for the future and determines what the city will be like 20 years from now.
Why are we doing this?
The comprehensive plan was last updated in 2004 and is ready for a major update. Policies in the plan create a long term vision for the future, which establish zoning, infrastructure priorities, development patterns, and land use characteristics.
How long is this process?
The comprehensive plan update will be completed by June 2015.
What does this mean to me?
This update is your opportunity to help set the vision for your community for the next 20 years!
We hope you will remain involved throughout this 2 year process.
When does the process start?
The Planning Commission held an Open House in June of 2013 to introduce the 2015 Comp Plan Update to the community and gather feedback on the Vision for the City in 2035. Approximately 125 attendees talked with Commissioners and staff, learned about this 2-year update process and filled a wall with their priorities for the future of Puyallup. Thank you for attending and engaging!
What's going on now?
The Planning Commission is currently reviewing draft elements for the Housing, Economic Development, South Hill, Community Character, and Utilities Element, with the intention of wrapping up the review of those Elements at their meeting in January. Staff is working with a consultant to come up with a draft Transportation Element, which the Planning Commission will start their review on next.
