Community Plan Updates effective date moved to October 1, 2021

Community Plan Updates effective date moved to October 1, 2021

Pierce County Council adopted updates to the Frederickson, Mid-County, Parkland-Spanaway-Midland and South Hill Community Plans and their implementing regulations on October 29, 2020. In response to pending appeals to the Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board (Case No. 21-3-0003c, which consolidates 3 appeals), the Council adopted a set of emergency ordinances on February 23, 2021 that moves the effective date of the updates to October 1, 2021.

Community plans provide direction on how growth and development will occur. The plans address topics such as zoning, transportation, the look and feel of the community, and access to services and amenities.

The updates included a proposal referred to as Centers and Corridors that focuses growth along Pacific Avenue/State Route 7, Meridian/State Route 161, 176th Street East, 112th Street East and Canyon Road East. Centers would be central gathering places for the community where people can live, work and access services, while Corridors would be areas for residential, commercial and employment uses designed to connect people to Centers.

It is unknown at this time if the plan updates and their implementing regulations will go into effect as adopted, or if changes will be made as a result of the appeals. The project webpage will be updated with the most recent news: www.piercecountywa.gov/CPupdate.
