Pierce County is updating community plans for Frederickson, Mid-County, Parkland-Spanaway-Midland, and South Hill communities. Each update will include a review of individual community issues and may identify issues that are common to all four areas. These plans are being updated simultaneously, because they make up the majority of the County’s central urban growth area. The major roads through the areas are connected, as are many of the issues facing these communities such as: rapid growth, traffic, jobs, and housing.
The Pierce County Council was anticipated to begin considering the proposed changes for each plan this spring. Due to COVID-19 and the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, the council’s consideration process has been postponed.
Once the consideration process begins, there will be opportunities for in-person and written public comment. Information on future council meetings will be posted at piercecountywa.gov/council.
