STUDY SESSION

 

2015 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE AND THE UNIVERSITY PLACE REGIONAL GROWTH CENTER

 

Planning and Development Services Director Swindale presented information on what the City is required to do under the Growth Management Act (GMA), and how the County-wide Planning Policies and the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) VISION 2040 documents connect with the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Counties and cities are mandated to review and, if needed, revise their comprehensive plans and development regulations to ensure the plan and development regulations are consistent with the state goals, the Countywide Planning Policies and PSRC’s VISION 2040.  Failure to comply with these requirements could result in the loss of the portion of revenues to which the city is entitled to, loss of the city’s authority to collect the real estate excise tax and loss of the city’s designation as Regional Growth Center.  Certification of local plans and policies is a requirement for jurisdictions and agencies that intend to apply for PSRC funding or proceed with any project submitted to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program. 

 

Director Swindale, advised Council that after review of the City’s Comprehensive Plan, the Puget Sound Regional Council determined that the City’s population and employment targets are not sufficient because the County extended its growth target year from 2030 to 2035.  He presented new figures that extends the City’s population and employment growth targets to 2035 for Council to consider.  In addition, Director Swindale provided the timeline, planning and designation requirements of the City’s application for Regional Growth Center candidacy.
