The Washington State Department of Commerce has released updated guidelines that assist local governments with the required review and evaluation component of the Growth Management Act.

Puget Sound region jurisdictions, including Snohomish County, are all required to prepare buildable lands reports that, in turn, inform their comprehensive plan updates. At the end of the process, future land use maps are a product of the reports, making them vitally important to MBAKS members. Review the new guidance.

For more information, contact Snohomish County Manager Mike Pattison, 425.460.8203.
