The Pierce County Planning Commission, a body of appointed citizens, is reviewing the Centers and Corridors Comprehensive Plan Changes the County Planning and Land Services has been proposing for the area from 112th Street to 176th Street and Meridian to Pacific Avenue.
This is one of several steps through to approval or denial by the County Council.
Please take a moment to see what growth the County is Planning in our unincorporated area. Keep in mind, this forces all services like schools, libraries, water companies and fire districts to spend our tax dollars to keep up too. You will already be seeing an increase from the current wave of construction in your 2020 tax bill (or rent increase).

A quote: “Recognizing that the Centers and Corridors-designated areas may not have the infrastructure available to accommodate potential growth, the zoning may be phased using a phase 2 zoning designated by “-2” in the zone name. These phase 2 zones must have the same non-residential uses but may reduce or eliminate the residential uses, densities, height, and/or parking requirements associated with the zone. The application of phase 2 zoning shall be addressed in the applicable community plan.”
