 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that there has been proposed to the Franklin County Planning Commission an application by the City of Pasco, WA, for a request to expand the City’s Urban Growth Area (UGA), under Franklin County file # CPA 2018-03, as part of the City’s required 10-Year Comp Plan Update.

 CPA 2018-03 has been significantly amended since the original application was submitted and remanded back to the City for additional work. The City of Pasco, based on the results of an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) that provided three (3) alternatives (No Change, Alternative #2 – proposing a UGA increase of approximately 4,800 acres, and Alternative #3 reducing the originally proposed UGA expansion from approximately 4,800 acres to approximately 3,488 acres), has adopted Alternative #3 as its preferred alternative. 


This is a non-specific site application, applying to multiple parcels within Franklin County. The general boundaries of the proposed UGA expansion are as follows: North of Dent Rd., south of Selph-Landing Rd., and west of Columbia River Rd.; then east of Columbia River Rd., south of Fanning Rd., north of Burns Rd., west of Road 52 North alignment; a section of industrial zoned land between Hwy 395 and Railroad Rd., north of the Clark Rd. east alignment and south of the Fanning Rd. east alignment; and a parcel of land bounded to the west by Capital Ave., and south of Foster Wells Rd.
