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 on June 12 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 next Element to be updated is the Housing Element. Planning Commission has had a preliminary discussion regarding a draft outline and outreach strategy. Staff will now be working with various individuals and groups (residents, employers, housing professionals, affordable housing advocates) to determine priorities and recommend goals to be included in the Housing update.
