Comprehensive Plan Update
The City of Pasco is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan. The Pasco Comprehensive Plan is a statement of goals and policies that outlines the community’s vision for the future. The Plan is a basic reference document that provides guidance for the development and implementation of specific ordinances and regulations affecting the physical environment of the community. The Plan also anticipates population and employment growth and how public facilities and services will be provided to accommodate that growth.
The city originally adopted a Growth Management Act (GMA) Comprehensive Plan in 1995 in response to legislation provided in RCW 36.70A. This Plan is a revision and update of the 1995 plan, and a response to the GMA requirement that the City of Pasco must review and, if necessary, revise the plan and any associated development regulations. Beginning in December 2017, the City of Pasco is on a GMA mandated track to review and revise this Plan every 7 years.
