Plans for the these communities have been adopted and the resulting
regulations are a part of the County Code. Community Plans are a part of

Public participation is a hallmark of the Growth Management Act (GMA) and is an integral part of Pierce County’s planning process. The GMA calls for “early and continuous public participation in the development and amendment of comprehensive land use plans and development regulations implementing such plans.” (RCW 36.70A.140)
The goal of the Public Participation Program is to inform residents, property and business owners, and other stakeholders on how to learn about or initiate proposed land use changes, and how to provide comment on proposals.
