Snohomish County 2015 Update
Planning for growth. 2015 to 2035.
Snohomish County is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The current plan, adopted in 2005, covers the time period 2005 to 2025. The update will extend the current plan's growth outlook to 2015-2035. We expect to complete the update project in June, 2015. Updates refresh policies and elements of the plan with an eye toward population and employment growth over the next 20 years. With this growth comes increasing demand for residential, commercial and industrial land, parks, schools, services, utility facilities and roads. The 2015 Update project focuses on future land use needs in unincorporated urban areas but has links to planning in cities, rural areas, and tribal lands.
Public input is a major part of the 2015 Update. This website is designed to encourage and facilitate public involvement. We will keep the information on this site current and hope that you will use it to comment on parts of the plan that might be changing. We look forward to hearing from you!
