Regional Planning News
The Puget Sound Regional Council is beginning an effort to plan for the anticipated population growth of 1.8 million more people in our region by 2050. This plan for the Puget Sound region, which includes Pierce, King, Snohomish and Kitsap counties, influences local policies about where and how growth should take place. It sets growth policy region-wide related to economic development, transportation, land use and more.
These plans include policies that Pierce County is required to follow, such as discouraging growth in unincorporated Pierce County and pushing growth into surrounding cities, with the highest growth targets in the City of Tacoma. It also includes policies that unincorporated suburban communities should be annexed into an existing city or incorporated into a new city.
