Draft Comprehensive Plan Review Schedule

Draft Comprehensive Plan Review
Posted on 03/29/2021
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 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.

The Planning Commission will be formally reviewing the draft Comprehensive Plan over the next few months, on the following special meeting schedule:

April 14 - Introduction, Chapters 1, 2 & 3
May 12 - Chapters 4 & 5
June 9 - Chapters 6 & 7
July 14 - Chapters 8, 9 & Appendices
August 11 - Conduct the public hearing and forward a recommendation to City Council.

All of these special meetings will begin at 7:00PM. The deadline to submit comments for the upcoming special meeting is set for 5:00PM the Wednesday prior to the meeting.

As with all draft plans and programs produced by the planning department, we welcome public feedback. Staff encourages submittal of comments by means of email (PWP-admin@pullman-wa.gov), postal mail (190 SE Crestview Street, Building A, Pullman, WA  99163), or telephone (509-338-3220) communication.
