2016 King County Comprehensive Plan Update
King County continues its responsibility to update the King County Comprehensive Plan (KCCP) — the planning document required under the State’s Growth Management Act that guides residential, commercial, and industrial development and growth and zoning in our rural area. Every fourth year a major review of the plan is conducted. The 2016 four-year cycle began in Feb 2015 and the Area Council was actively involved in all reviews and submitted detailed comments on nearly every chapter and appendix. In addition, every year the King County Executive and Council receives and considers update requests from citizens and other entities. For example, in 2017 King County received a request from Reserve Silica related to its planned residential development of portions of its Ravensdale mining-site property. Please see our Growth Management Committee and Correspondence – Letters pages to learn more about the GMVUAC’s involvement with this process, along with all links to our comments.
