What Is the Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process?

Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendments, involve a public process to review and amend the Comprehensive Plan. The review involves evaluating increases in population, services, capital facilities, land use, and other factors before the Pasco Planning Commission and Pasco City Council. Washington State Law prohibits local jurisdictions from amending their Comprehensive Plans more than once per calendar year.

Any property owner or their representative, citizen, agency, neighborhood association or other party within the Pasco Urban Growth Area may apply for an amendment to the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The amendment process begins with a required pre-application conference, followed by submittal of a completed application.
