The Frederickson Community Plan and implementing regulations were initially adopted by Pierce County on October 28, 2003 with an effective date of December 15, 2003 (Ordinance No. 2003-93s2). The Plan was most recently updated by Ordinance No. 2020-98s2 and 2021-49, effective October 1, 2021. Community Plans are a part of the Comprehensive Plan and provide a more detailed sense of how the community wants the area to develop in the future.
Frederickson has experienced tremendous growth and transformed from a quiet, rural community to a suburban community of many homes and businesses. This plan is premised on the idea that through proper management of growth, the community can avoid, minimize, or mitigate many existing and future problems.
The community realizes that continued growth within Frederickson and the surrounding communities is inevitable. The challenge to the community is not to stop growth, but to control and plan for growth to occur in a manner which will have beneficial impacts on the community. This plan is premised on the idea that through proper management of growth, the community can avoid, minimize, or mitigate many existing and future problems. Responsible growth is the central concept of this plan. The ideals set forth above are of paramount importance to the community. The community is also sensitive to the rights of the landowner. The impact of the community plan on these rights must be carefully considered to ensure landowners will not be deprived of the reasonable use of their land.
Achievement of the plan’s goals will help ensure that a high-quality living environment exists in the community. To strive for anything less would deprive current and future generations of the abundant benefits associated with a healthy, natural environment; quality schools, roads, and parks; livable neighborhoods; sustainable commercial and industrial development; and a healthy local economy.
