Growth Management Update

A quick update on which counties have submitted their Comprehensive Plans, some upcoming resources to be made available in September, and a clock-hour education opportunity to help understand the laws governing Comprehensive plans....
Jurisdictions in Central Puget Sound (Pierce, King and Snohomish) are the first cities and counties scheduled to update their Comprehensive Plans by 2015. The remaining counties and cities are on a staggered schedule between 2016 and 2018.  These plans provide the framework helping direct how communities will grow. Washington REALTORS currently is working developing and updating resources to help local associations participate in local community comprehensive plan updates. We expect to have these resources available this September.

In addition to the resources being prepared, we are also working on a project with Mary Hull-Drury and the Washington State Department of Commerce to have the Short Course on Local Planning certified for REALTOR clock hours. The Short Course is a great way to learn the laws governing the development of Comprehensive Plans and will be a great resource when interacting with local jurisdictions on plan updates. In fact, on Tuesday, September 16th from 6:15 to 9:15 Washington REALTORS will be co-hosting with the City of Pasco a Short Course. So mark your calendars! More information will be coming in the future.
