The Pierce County Comprehensive Plan guides the County’s overall strategy for growth and development over the next 20 years. It sets the goals and policies for items such as land use, economic development, housing, transportation, and the environment. Every two years, the County accepts applications for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. Approved amendments can result in changes to land use and zoning designations and regulations.
