Offer input on King County growth blueprint
October 23, 2012
King County is poised to adopt a broad blueprint for growth in unincorporated areas, and before leaders act on the plan, residents can offer input.
In a Sept. 19 decision, a King County Council committee sent the blueprint, or comprehensive plan, to the full council for consideration.
The council then plans to conduct a more in-depth review and pass the comprehensive plan by early next year.
Residents can continue to submit written testimony at the council website, www.kingcounty.gov/council. Follow the link labeled “Comprehensive Plan.”
The blueprint guides growth and development in the unincorporated areas and sets policy on major issues, such as annexations, transportation and the environment.
Under the Growth Management Act, leaders must prepare comprehensive land use plans for 20 years into the future.
