Pierce County recently updated community plans for the Frederickson, Mid-County, Parkland-Spanaway-Midland, and South Hill communities. Each update included a review of individual community issues and identified issues that are common to all four areas. These plans were 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 Community Plan Updates are now effective as of October 1, 2021.
The PublicGIS and CountyView GIS systems are up to date. The Pierce County Code is expected to be updated the week of October 4, 2021. Direct links to the updated code will be added to this page once available.
The following resource document and presentation have been created to help navigate the adopted changes. Note: the resources only show new changes to the regulations.
Pierce County Council also adopted a set of emergency ordinances on February 23, 2021 that moves the effective date of the proposed updates to the Frederickson, Mid-County, Parkland-Spanaway-Midland and South Hill Community Plans to October 1, 2021.
Note: adopted changes may differ from the information in past resources
