Draft Comprehensive Plan

Draft Comprehensive Plan
Posted on 06/15/2020
Comprehensive Plan clipartPullman’s existing Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 1999, with significant amendments adopted in 2013. The planning department has been gathering public input for several years to create an updated set of vision statements, goals, and policies that will provide direction for future land use and development in this community.

BERK Consulting, Inc. of Seattle has been working with the planning department over the past six months to help prepare the draft update. Prior to that, the consulting firm of David Evans and Associates, Inc. provided assistance on this project.

The draft Comprehensive Plan is now available, and contains chapters regarding the purpose and applicability of the plan, vision and framework principles, land use, community design, housing, transportation, parks and open space, capital facilities, and implementation. The draft document also includes several appendices that provide background information utilized in the formulation of the proposed plan.

Planning Department staff will be presenting a summary of the draft plan to the City Council and Planning Commission on June 23 and June 24, respectively.  Thereafter, the Planning Commission will likely conduct public workshops to review the document in detail before the city moves on to required formal hearings before the Commission and Council.

As with all draft plans and programs produced by the planning department, we welcome public feedback on this draft plan update. Staff encourages submittal of comments by means of email (PWP-admin@pullman-wa.gov), postal mail (325 SE Paradise Street, Pullman, WA  99163), or telephone (509-338-3213) communication.
