Clark County Comprehensive Plan Update
Clark County is going through the process of updating its comprehensive plan in accordance with the Growth Management Act (GMA). The plan is due to the Washington State Department of Commerce on June 30th 2025. This plan sets out how the county will accommodate growth over the next twenty years. This determines land use, infrastructure, and allowable uses on property throughout the county. The first part of the process will look at population forecasts from the Office of Financial Management followed by employment forecasts. This is a very important planning tool, and the county hopes to garner as much public participation as possible. Below you will find information on the comprehensive plan update, public participation plan, and the current adopted plan, last updated in 2016.
