Comprehensive Planning is a topic near and dear to League of Women Voters
The League was instrumental in getting the original Growth Management Act, which requires local comprehensive plans, passed in 1990 and has advocated for healthy amendments to the law ever since. So it is important for our League to be involved in our local comprehensive plans.
In Pierce County, there will be many plans, one for each city and one for the unincorporated County. The first one League will be commenting on is the Pierce County Plan for unincorporated areas.
This year's planning is critical because of the intense need for housing to address homelessness and climate change mitigation and resilience strategies. New legislation has imposed different ways to develop on all jurisdictions. This year's plan affects the next 20 years, so it has to be a good plan.
This workshop will offer background on the proposed draft plan elements and demonstration of how to use the information to send comments. No one can be fully informed of the entire plan, so there will be tools to help participants focus on he issues most important to them.

. Plan summaries will be added before the workshop on Saturday.
