Annual Amendments

The City of Puyallup considers amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Future Land Use Map each year. Applications are typically due in April; however, City Council adjusted the schedule for accepting privately initiated amendment applications for 2022, 2023, and 2024 in preparation for the City's 2024 Periodic Update to the Comprehensive Plan. As a result, applications were due by February 28, 2022 for consideration in the 2022 amendment cycle. 

The City received two privately initiated applications for 2022; however, as of May 11, 2022 one application was withdrawn. Please see below for information on the anticipated meeting schedule.
