Adoption of the Comprehensive Plan is the first step toward achieving the City’s goals for the future of the community. The Comprehensive Plan will only be effected when implemented through a number of actions including the adoption of new city code provisions, revised zoning and design guidelines, city participation and representation in regional forums and re-investment in capital facilities.
The Plan should be viewed as a dynamic document and subject to change as community values, conditions and needs change. To this end, the city will perform periodic reviews of the plan and amendments as changing conditions require and citizen involvement dictates. The Growth Management Act requires that the Plan be comprehensively reviewed and updated every seven years. Periodic updates may not occur more than once a year, except as allowed under RCW 36.70A.130.
