King County has released its public review draft of the 2021 Countywide Planning Policies and Urban Growth Capacity Report (formally known as the Buildable Lands Report). These reports will serve as guiding policy to implement the Regional Growth Strategy as jurisdictions update local comprehensive plans in 2024, planning for growth through 2044. The comment period for both documents closes on May 5. MBAKS is reviewing the draft and will submit comments, largely focused on the housing and development patterns chapters.
